Today, on the 23rd day of June in the 54th year of the society The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands has selected new Archery and Fencing Champions.
First Lord Skjoldr Bjorn conducted a well designed, fun and challenging archery shoot to select our next archery champion. The shoot winnowed down the field of 15 archers to produce Lady Katheryn Taentzel as the new archery champion. Mistress Arianna of Wynthrope agreed to stand as her second.
Then Don Ru Cavorst ran a round robin tournament amongst the fencers to select finalists to vie for the position of fencing Champion. After 5 passes in the final Don Jorundr hinn Rotinn stood as the new fencing champion. Mistress Irene von Schmetterling agreed to stand as his second.
We wish to thank Lord Skjoldr for his service as our Archery Champion, Don Ru for his service as our Fencing Champion, Lady Arthes for marshaling the archery range so that new archers could practice while the championship was held and Mistress Anna for her service as Mistress of the List.
And Congratulations to our new Archery Champion Lady Katheryn and our Fencing Champion Don Jorundr! We look forward to both of their performances at the Pennsic Baronial Champions tournaments and at the Seven Pearls Championships to be held at Shoot in the Wyldwood.
