Remembrances:

"Final round was Viscount Sir Edward of Southhaven vs. the recently-knighted Sir Colin deBray (formerly Colin Dearg Halfdane, name changed at Knighting).  Colin's lady, Ceridwen MacAodhegain (Autocrat for the event), did not wish to be put on display during Finals; also she regarded it as bad luck, since it seemed like whenever she saw me fight, I lost.  So she retreated to "an undisclosed location" and arranged with friends who would fetch her when it was over.  This caused a bit of a stir, as it had become customary for the consorts of Finalists to sit together in the Royal Pavilion and watch the fighting. 

When I won, she was brought forth, and all was well." -- Colin de Bray
