Congratulations Alessandro Vitturi Da Canal!

The tourney prize.

On Wednesday, November 29th, the Cleftlands lists were opened up to all rapier combatants to test their mettle in the (now) annual tournament. Numerous inspired combatants stepped forth and took to the lists. When the flurry of steel, sweat, and dramatic deaths slowed and the last blows were counted, one rapier combatant emerged victorious. Congratulations to the Lord Alessandro Vitturi Da Canal, inspired by Lady Elinor Rochford, for winning the tournament and the tourney prize of a six-board chest designed by Lord Meinhard Hammerschmidt, her excellency Mistress Milesent Vibert for winning the esteem of the gallery, and his excellency Sir Calum MacDhaibhidh for the most impressive and twitchy death throes.

In addition to the rapier festivities, Lady Claricia de la Mere sponsored a friendly wagers table. While no one won the grand prize selecting the square with the final tournament combatants and the winner, two good gentles matched the quarter finals results and those prizes were awarded to Lady Jaquelinne de la Deicier and Lady Ragna stórráða Úlfsdóttir.
