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!
