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!
