    For those who will be bringing children not their own: There are TWO forms that you will need to bring for each child. They both need to be signed by the child's parent or legal guardian. ONE MUST BE NOTARIZED per Indiana law.

    1) This form needs the notarization and should be kept with the child at all times: http://www.sca.org/docs/pdf/treatminor-notary.pdf

    2) This form is the usual Minor Waiver: http://www.sca.org/docs/pdf/chldwaiv.pdf.

    PLEASE have both these forms filled out and signed/notarized where appropriate for each child you will be bringing that you are not the parent or legal guardian of. This requirement is out of our control and the children affected will not be allowed to attend if they are not completed properly before arrival. Thank you.


    Investiture

    These are the words of Their Majesties, Tsar Nikolai and Tsarina Serena.


    Greetings unto the Middle Kingdom from your Tsar and Tsarina!

    We are faced with an unprecedented occurrence in Our Kingdom! The venerable Baron and Baroness of Our Barony of Rivenstar, Moonwulf and Takaya, have indicated that they are finally ready for a rest after a long and distinguished career as the heads of the Barony. We are minded to grant this request as their service has been impeccable. But who could possibly fill such momentous shoes?

    Fortunately, many fine candidates stepped forward for consideration. We were well impressed with each, and confident that any of the candidates would look over Our lands in Rivenstar with dedication and wisdom. However, there can only be one Baron and one Baroness and, as such, We have selected Maighstir Adhamh MacAoidh and Lady Malie bean MhicAoidh to serve in this role.

    Their elevation shall occur at Feast of Three Saints and Constellation Regional A&S on April 23 (West Lafayette, IN). Please join Us in celebrating both the outgoing and incoming Baron and Baroness!

    In service to the MidRealm and Her people,

    Nikolai & Serena


    The Future Baron and Baroness

    Adhamh MacAoidh Malie bean MhicAoidh

    Fencing

    THREE TOURNAMENTS AND A MELEE
    • (T1) Dawn of time.
      • Time: 9am-10am.
      • Format: Single elim, single pass. No late entrants. Must be inspected and ready when your name is called.
      • Prize: Ye Olde Scottee Dagger.
    • (T2) Royal Rounds.
      • Time: 10:30am-noon
      • Format: Double elim, best 2 of 3 to advance. Double kill results in loss of secondary object, then secondary hand, then legs.
      • Prize: One promissory note from Lady Françoise for making a custom fencing hood or soft parry cloak to your design specification.
    • (T3) Passing the Torch.
      • Time: 12:30pm-2pm, or 15 minutes after the end of T2.
      • Format: Fighters will be split in two pools, "young" and "old" based either on time since first authorization, or on highest award received. Each "young" will select their "old" partner. The teams will participate in a double elim (perhaps single, depending on time and number of teams). Fighters will fight within their pool, facing their opponent twice, double kill is a win to each fighter. Highest total wins will advance. In case of a tie, a 2x2 "mini melee" will be done.
      • Prize: Pair of candlesticks, and pair of camp lanterns.
    • (M1) Warlord Melee.
      • Time: 2:30pm-3:30pm, or 15 minutes after the end of T3.
      • Format: adjusted random draw for first pairings (attempting to avoid fighting your local, or stacking the deck). All pairs fight at the lay on, and the warlord is responsible for finding their next opponent. Fights end when one warlord dies, the teams must be told who the warlords are. Single encounter, no DFB, no RBG. Team balancing in the final round on an ad hoc basis at marshal discretion, but consider “kill them fast” a tactical advantage in your race to the finals.
      • Prize: Wooden chest filled with goodies.
    • (M2) Regional melee practice
      • Time: 3:30pm-5pm.
      • Format: to be determined by the regional commander.
      • Prize: You get to be very tired.
