Stargate Yule

Come join The Barony of Stargate as we host the Tournament of Champions on behalf of Their Stellar Majesties and hold our annual Yule Celebration. Stargate will be choosing a new Bard and A&S Champion, and Master Alden Drake will be cooking a fantastic Polish feast.

Tournament of Champions

Each officially recognized local branch and incipient branches may sponsor two (2) combatants into the Tournament of Champions: one (1) into the Chivalric Tournament and one (1) into the Rapier Tournament.

All groups and Royal pairs are requested to send an email to CountessToryn@gmail.com to preregister their combatants by December 1, 2016.

Each group and Royal sponsor will be responsible for providing a donation to the prize baskets for each combatant they sponsor.

Stargate Yule

Their Excellencies Stargate invite all to enjoy the Yuletide season and join them for competition and feasting!

We will be hosting the Stargate Arts & Sciences and Bardic Championships this day. Come all and compete for these old and noble titles.

The A&S competition will be a single entry, documentation encouraged but not required. Bardic details coming soon!
