Fencing at Coronation
As posted earlier I will be running rapier at the upcoming Coronation event:
Here is the format I'm planning to run:
Coronation Rapier Tourney Format - Coin Tourney
The Coronation Rapier Tourney will take the form of a Challenge Format/Dance
Card Tourney. Each combatant will be provided with 3 coins/tokens which they
can use to wager on the outcome of their bout (and only their bout, no side
bets please). A maximum of three coins can be wagered on each bout. Bouts
will be fought to the first, second or third blood depending on how many
coins a fencer bets. If three coins are bet, then it will take three bloods
to that bettor to eliminate them from the bout. The combatants do not have
to wager the same amount and all bets are settled at the end of the bout.
Once a fencer has lost all their coins they are out of the tournament though
they can receive loans from other fencers to continue. Weapons forms will be
agreed upon by the fencers before their bout. The person with the most coins
at the end of the tourney wins.
Please let me know if you have any comments or questions about the format.

- LarsThis Saturday at Coronation, Their Majesties will be holding tournaments choose Their Champions.Come out and play!
The Rapier Champions tournament will be a standard double elimination, with the first round set by random draw. The winner of this tournament will become Their Majesties' Rapier Champion.
The schedule is not fixed in stone, and will run something like this:
- Morning court will be at 11AM
- Inspections will begin after court
- Shortly thereafter, at Their Majesties' whim, the Rapier Champions tourney will begin
- After the Champions tournament, fence until you drop (or 4:30, whichever comes first)
What we do after the tourney will depend on how many fencers are present - could be a round-robin, or bear pits, or just open the list for free play.
