King’s and Queen’s Rapier Championships, A.S. 50

King’s and Queen’s Rapier Championships
October 10, 2015 (A.S. XLIX)
Barony of Smoking Rocks
Marshal in Charge: Don Antonio Patrasso
Staged Tournament (66 combatants)
Overall Winners: Master Donovan Shinnock (King’s Rapier Champion) and Lord Llewellyn Walsh (Queen’s Rapier Champion)
Other Winner: Don Thomas of Effingham (Cloak of Perseverance)

The format for the tournamet as transcribed below:
The tournament will consist of three parts – the round robin, the sweet sixteen, and the finals.

Part One – Round Robin: The top fighters in each pool (number dependent on how many pools we have) will be selected to advance to the sweet sixteen. Matches will consist of a single bout, with weapon forms of the combatants’ choosing.

Part Two – Sweet Sixteen: This will be a double elimination tree. Matches will consist of a single bout, with weapon forms of the combatants’ choosing.

Part Three – Semi-Finals and Finals: At the semi-finals, all previous losses will be forgiven — a combatant need win only once to advance to the finals. The finals will be decided as a best of five bouts, with matched weapon forms. Weapons forms will be alternating choice, with 1st choice decided by coin flip. Weapons forms may not repeat until the 5th fight (if necessary).

Other tournament-wide conventions: Double kills will be refought until a victor has been determined. Fencers approaching or crossing a list boundary during a bout will not be recentered. If a hold is called because a fencer has reached or crossed a boundary, the match will resume with the fencer on the boundary. Finally, the marshals note that Two Handed Sword is now a separate authorization form. Every effort will be made to have authorizing marshals available prior to the tournament. There are no additional restrictions on the use of two-handed swords.

66 Combatants were separated into 8 pools according to their achievements with the blade (OGRs were divided evenly among the pools) and home (Each pool contained combatants from the several regions to ensure everyone got to fight some new folks), with the results as follows:
