If you're not familiar with the tournament format, we are asking all
entrants to bring a bauble for the prize table (a.k.a., the treasure
chest). Something not too expensive--but something you might like to
take home at the end of the day yourself. That way, ALL entrants will
be going home with a prize. Gentlemen, you can also get in on the
game by possibly showing what kind of gentleman you are by sponsoring
a female fighter. We're hoping this tournament highlights the
wonderful female fighters of this Kingdom both established and up and
We would also welcome lady rapier fighters from other kingdoms as
well! If you intend to enter, please contact us and let us know.
Photos of the dagger can be seen in the Photos section of the

picture to you.
So spread the word and hope to see a fine turnout!
