September 2014

Myself, Nikolai Nikson, Gui, and Brian (from Loch Leven) fought in this month's Beau Geste. We fought a modified bear pit, where each of us held the field once against all the rest, but only wins and losses counted when you held the field. The victor, undefeated, was Sir Gui. Vive le Beau Geste!

August 2014 Beau Geste

The beau Geste tournament was held at Count Horic's BBQ and fighter practice on Long Island yesterday. 13 fighters entered the tournament, including three who were not fighting for the prize (myself, Sir Jabril, and the Beau Geste at the time Lord Auzur).

The finals came down to a best 3 of 5 combat between Tycho Mikelson and Lord Nicolai Wegener. Lord Nicolai took the great sword and pole arm bouts, Tycho won the two weapon and dagger bouts. In the sword and shield bout, Lord Nikolai proved victorious.

Vive le Beau Geste!

Beau Geste, June, 2014

Yesterday, before a crowd of curious onlookers at Riverfest, we held our Beau Geste tournament. It was Gui's variation on the Round Robin, which is a real excellent meat grinder. Every body holds the field once, and you count only the wins and losses when you are holding the field--so, with five fighters, you fought everybody four times. (16 fights). Myself, Gui, Tycho, Auzur, and Samale (sp) contested. Gui was fighting so there would be more fighters but, as he was the current Beau Geste, he was not competing for the prize. The finals were best two out of three, with various matched weapons. Tycho won the sword and shield fight, Auzur won the long sword fight and then the two weapon fight, winning the day. Vive la Beau Geste!
