Their Excellencies Crispin and Gianna, fifth Baron and Baroness of the Cleftlands, cordially invite you to their fall Cleftlands Rapier Classic. This tournament will be held on Wednesday, November 29th, 2017 in Euclid, OH. All authorized rapier combatants are encouraged to participate, regardless of rank, station, or location. The tournament will commence around 7:45 PM.
If competing, please arrive early enough to make your intentions known at the list table as well as reporting in to the heralds who will not only announce you and your consort, but help you process into the tourney by Order of Precedence. Non-combatants, please do honor to your worthy champion and dress your best to support their efforts.
Revelers are encouraged to swing by the gallery to get expert commentary, bring and enjoy some nibbles, and enter a friendly wager on our squares-style “medieval” grids. Submit a token or largesse* (no real money or alcohol) to reserve a square. When the final 8 are decided, names of those combatants will be put into the squares at random, so you never know who you’re going to get! Cheer on your contestants, and if you get the square that matches the final results, you’ll win the grand prize. Gifts for runners-up will also be awarded.
* Largesse collected will be added to the Cleftlands gift basket supplies. These supplies will be used for kingdom and/or visiting nobility gift baskets. Thank you!
