Seawinds is having its 30th anniversary this year and it is my esteemed honor to hold the place as Chivalric defender. As such I have designed the tourney format in order to decide the next champion of Seawinds.
First tourney will be a progressive death tourney, each fighter has 3 "lives" at the first life they fight with single sword, at the second life they fight with any 2 handed weapon, and on the third life the fighter shall choose their best form. Random pairings until we have the top 2 fighters who will fight a final and advance to the finals, (the fighters that advance can be expanded depending on how many fighters we have.)
The second tourney will be a speed style with your best style, fighters will pair up then fight single elimination best 2 advance same as before,
For the finals we will have a dice of death decision on the weapons style single elimination.
The tourney will be in two parts; first will be a progressive lives tourney where each combatant has 3 lives. First life is single sword, second life is defensive secondary, and third life is offensive secondary. After the third loss, you are out. Then, we will have a 30 minute (45 minute? We'll see what the schedule permits) bear pit. The top point scorer will move on to the final to face the winner of the progressive lives tourney in a dice roll of death, best two out of three final.
Round 1: A period piece or piece done in a period style. Documentation strongly encouraged, but not required.
Round 2: A piece glorifying Ansteorra or its people. Special consideration will be given to pieces about Seawinds or Seawinders.
Round 3: 2-3 finalists will be chosen to perform a piece of their choice at feast.
I am pleased to invite one and all to the upcoming Arts
and Sciences competition at Seawinds Defender.

As Seawinds Gustatory Defender I challenge all who wish to compete for this distinguished honor to create a dish or two that reflects "Seawinds" in some manner. It could be food from the sea, food shaped like a shell, a dish inspired by a recipe from one of our fabulous feasts. Be creative.
Judging will be based on best interpretation of the theme, and display. Ingredients and recipes are requested. Please prepare enough to share with 10-12 people as the entries will be open to the populace to taste after judging. Judging will begin at 11:30 am.
All cooks are responsible for their own food preparation and serving supplies. The kitchen will be available to warm up any dishes but please be considerate of the feast steward.
