Champions will be chosen for Armored, Rapier, Archery, Equestrian, Arts and Sciences, Bardic arts and Brewing and Vintner. A Youth Rapier and Armored combat. A large covered period gaming area will be available and plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy the weekend!

A five star format will be used for members of the kingdom who wish to enter the competitions. Individual champions will be chosen to represent the barony for the next year.

An overall 5 STAR team will be the Argent Anniversary champions.

To enter, gather four of your best friends, enemies or both and compete in at least five competitions. Youth activities also count. Young members of our kingdom are able to compete in all activities listed if authorized. Theoretically a five person team of young people could win this 5 star event. Young members of the kingdom are encouraged to come and compete for prizes and fame! It is not a requirement to be on a team to compete, but what luster is lost when you have none to share the prize with!

The competition shall consist of two rounds, where performers are invited to bring their best pieces.  There are no style requirements, but additional points from the judges may be garnered by providing documentation for pieces and for performing pieces themed to Argent/Silver, in honor of the barony’s anniversary.  From the two rounds, the judges shall deliberate and select 2-3 finalists, who will perform in a third round that evening during feast.





Ok...traditional Ravensfort challange-style tourney.  Each fighter will have the opportunity to challange each lyst participant in each weapon style. A final round featuring those fighters with the most challange wins in each weapon style will determine the next Cavalier of the Fort.





Initial rounds will consist of four separate single elimination tournaments run simultaneously.  Combatants may choose to enter any number of the four fields.  The winner of each field will be awarded a place in the final tournament.  Should one fighter win all four fields that fighter will win the tournament.  Fields will consist of the following weapon styles:

Greetings unto the Stellar Populace of Ansteorra! Upon the splendid fields of Southern Ansteorra this September 19th – 21st, their Sable Winged Excellencies Pasquale and Giovanna Baron and Baroness of Raven’s Fort will choose their Archery Champion. Come and test your mettle against the best our Kingdom has to offer. Rest assured your skills will be tested no matter if you be a crossbowman or handbowman. We have several ends designed to test your skills against a variety of targets, i.e. wreaths, animals and even a Combat Archery round to make sure our Champion can defend no matter what the field of battle may be. The Combat shoot will be a standard IKCAC round. It will require that you have combat legal bow/crossbow, ammo, head and hand appropriate armour (be that rapier or heavy weapons forms). We look forward to seeing the best Ansteorra has upon the fields of glory that our gracious hosts are providing. HL Padraic of Kilkenny CAO

Additional challenges will be set before any competitor wishing to be considered for the next Chevalier of the Fort, Ravensfort’s Equestrian Champion. Their Champion will be selected from among the entrants based on criteria set forth by Their Excellencies.

The Equestrian Competitions will take place in the morning with the afternoon for jousting, games, fun, training and sharing.

Prepare your steeds, prepare yourselves, join a team and join your fellow equestrians at Ravensfort’s 25th Anniversary Celebrations.
