February 2013

Today we held the second of our revived Beau Geste tournaments. It was bright and sunny but COLD. 29 degrees with a wind chill of 15! I ran the tournament as the current Beau Geste. There were four fighters: Dougal, Gui, Tycho, and Garret (Zach). We fought three rounds in which each fought each of the others, then the fighters with the fewest losses advanced to the finals, which would be three out of five with mixed weapons: great sword, then two weapon, then sword and shield, then great ax, then choice. The finalists were Gui and Garett. Garrett won the first two fights and then Gui won the final three for the victory. Dougal was granted the banner for his chivalry. Vive le Beau Geste!
