THE WINNER AND CONSORT WILL BE PRESENTED TO THE CROWN AT EVENING COURT, ALONG WITH A PRIZE TO PRESENT TO THE CONSORT.

The tourney will be the now-traditional pool tournament fought on all lists. Pools will be between 8-12 fighters per pool with the exact numbers of fighters and pools will depend on the number of entrants. Double kills count as a loss for each fighter. The top fighters from each pool advancing to four new pools of 8. Time allowing, this will then produce two pools from which two finalists will emerge to face each other in a best three of five bouts with different weapons from the following choices – Sword and Shield, Two Weapon, Pole Arm, Spear, Mass Weapon and Shield, Single One Handed Sword & Two-Handed Sword. First choice will go to the fighter with lesser precedence, then the other. If a third round is needed, it will be royal choice but not a repeat.
