From The Page (June, 2001):
On this day, there shall be crossing of steel, honor upon the field, reveling galore and the naming of the first Golden Rivers Rapier Champion! After the finals, we encourage you to picnic in the shade. A barbecue will be fired up for you to grill whatever you wish to bring for your midday reveling pleasure. Pick up fights will be had for those undaunted by the sun. It will be hot, so please keep well hydrated throughout the day. Cool water and Gatorade will be provided by the province. In the afternoon, the Golden Rivers Champion will be recognized and prizes for Honor, Chivalry, and Style/Beauty will be presented in the shade.
Armor inspection will begin promptly at 10 am List entry will close and the double elimination tournament will commence at 10:30 am (Aye, the times are stiff to keep fighting away from the heat of the day - so be early). Bouts will be decided by first kill or concession; however, bouts may be decided at the drawing of first blood upon agreement of both rapier fighters.
Site Fee: $2, under 14 free. Site opens at 9 am
