August Tourney

We had a Beau Geste tourney today. It being the weekend after Pennsic, when many fighters were recuperating (including yours truly) we only ahd four fighters: Timur, Gui, Daniel and Vasilli. We had a weighted counted blows round robin. Gui and Vasili had to land five good blows on their opponents, Daniel and Timur had to land three good blows. The victor of the tourney was Gui, with three wins and no losses. Vive le Beau Geste!

The next Beau Geste will be on Sunday September 20.

July Beau Geste


This past Sunday, July 12, we had our Beau Geste Tournament at Brooklyn Army Terminal practice. There were six participants in the tournament: Dainel of Ostgardr, Kasimir, Wolfy, Everett, Gina, and Vasilli. Gui ran the tournament and insisted that challenges be part of every round, and the fighters and spectators had a lot of fun with it. The best challenge went to Gina.

The victor of the tournament was Lord Kasimir, who defeated Vasilli in the final round, two out of three. Vive le Beau Geste!

In an effort to attract more fighters, we are setting the dates of the Beau Geste in advance. For the rest of the year the Beau Geste tournament will be held on the third Sunday of the month. That would be 8/16, 9/20, 10/18, 11/15, and 12/20. So the next one will be held the Sunday after Pennsic. See you there!

April Beau Geste

The Beau Geste tournament was yesterday, and it started out looking like it would be a big tourney. Sir Teric was there and in armor, as were myself, Gui, Oscad, Vasili, Wulfgar and Avran. But I had a migraine and almost puked in my helmet, so I got out of armor. Gui and Teric were on a schedule and got out at the same time. That left Wulfgar, Avran, Vasili, and Oscad. It was running late. We fought a simple single elimination, each round two out of three. I had them draw straws for the first pairings. Wulfgar beat Avran in the first set, then Oscad beat Vasili 2 and 1. In the finals, Oscad beat Wulfgar, becoming the first two time winner of the Beau Geste.

Vive la Beau Geste!

Alaric won the Lapin Agile rapier tourney. Vive le Lapin Agile!

Beau Geste Results

At this month Beau Geste tournament yesterday there were only four fighters: Rav, Dugal MacDonal, Visilis and Timur of Ostgardr. Since the number was small, and coming off the wounds retained format at Birka, Oscad decided that each pair of fighters would fight three fights: each would start one fight from their knees, and then in the third fight they would start standing. It was a good training exercise. The winner, with one loss, was Dugal MacDonal.

Vive le Beau Geste!

January Beau Gestge Tournament

Congratulations to Oscad de Segovia, winner of this month's Beau Geste Tournament!

There were eight fighters in the round-robin list: Lord Oscad, Vasili, Ervald the Optimistic, Roderic, Wolfy, William, Everett and Timoor of Ostgardr.

Oscad was victorious with six wins and one losss. Second place was Roderic, with five wins and two losses. Third place was a tie between Vasili and Timoor, with four wins and three losses.

Kudos to Lord Ervald, who fought at different times with Sword and Shield, glaive, and sword and dagger. Timoor fought the entire list with single broadsword and gave Lord Oscad his only loss. It was a really good tourney.

Vive le Beau Geste!
