Rose Tourney at War of the Trillium

Duchess Adrielle Kerrec will once again be organizing a Rose Tourney at War of the Trillium:

Once again there will be a Rose Tournament at Trillies. It has been scheduled for Saturday after Court. Court is set for 5pm. We are hoping to be going at or before 7pm dependant of course on Their Royal Majesties wishes.

The format will be the same as in prior years . Specifically, each team will consist of one rapier combatant & two unbelted armoured combatant fighters. Each bout will consist of three passes - a pass between opposing Roses' unbelt, followed by a rapier pass and then the 2nd unbelt pass (or whatever order the Roses choose, they can even choose to have their armoured combatants fight as a two man team). The victor will be the Rose Team whose team has the greatest number of winning passes in the bout.

The Rose Tournament is unique in that the Ladies sponsor the field, and it is a special opportunity to showcase many of the ideals of the society including honor, courtesy, and presence on the field. The wish is to encourage and endorse those fighters who aspire to the highest ideals of chivalry and courtesy on the field of honourable combat. This tournament is what the SCA is about, for us to provide a forum for great deeds of valor;
courage and chivalry.

To that end entrants must meet the requirements listed below.
  • Participation is limited to unbelted fighters and non-royal Peers. 
  • The participant must be sponsored by a Lady of the Rose, who must be in attendance at the tournament. 
  • A Lady of the Rose may sponsor 3 participants in this tournament (2 unbelted armoured combatants and one rapier combatant). 
  • We'd like to encourage as period kits as possible. No visible plastic, no modern shoes or other mundane items if at all possible.

If you are interested in participating please feel free to approach any of the Ladies of the Rose. Some chose their teams in advance, some at the event.

The populace is encouraged to come out and bear witness to the Tournament and we look forward to seeing many of you there.

Duchess Adrielle
