Unto the People of Cynnabar do Tairdelbach and Hannah send Greetings,

As the weather once again changes, and Spring warms the blood of the
warriors of Cynnabar, We intend to host the 3rd Spring Revel on the 29th of
April. In addition to merriment and much food and drink -- there will be
tourneys held to determine our Armoured and Rapier Champions who will help
lead Our army this summer.

This revel will, as is usual for the warmer months, be part of the regular
outdoor practice and potluck style dinner known as the “Kill and Grill”.
But for this occasion We ask that those attending wear garb, as there will
be a short Court to do the business of announcing Our Champions, and to add
to the atmosphere of the revel. In addition, we will try to attempt to take
a new Baronial Photo for the website!

The Tourneys will be styled after the Knowne World Baronial Champions
Tourneys held each year at the Pennsic War. If you are not familiar with
those Tourneys -- it is a panel judged format where the Tenans spar with
each other for a time and then are asked a question or two by a panel of
Baronesses, and then continue to spar. The panel then chooses a victor
based on the comportment, eloquence, and prowess of the Tenans.

In this case the Panel will be the sitting and past Baronesses of Cynnabar,
with input from the Barons.

So that all who are interested may know We provide below a list that
includes, but is not limited by, the duties expected of Our Champions.

- Swear fealty through the Baron/Baroness to the Crown of the Middle
- Lead the troops on the field of battle when asked by your Baron/Baroness.
- Take attendance at practices, or ask someone to make sure it is done if
you are unable to attend.
- Be able to work and/or train the troops as required.
- Must attend Pennsic, Talonval, Baron and Border Wars (of course real life
does happen...)
- Other events are also strongly encouraged.
- Encourage cross-over between armoured and rapier fighting.
- Maintain, repair, expand upon and wear with pride the Regalia of your
- Stand up in Court and attend your Baron/Baroness.  You are part of the
- Advise the Baron/Baroness on successors, pay attention to those that
might someday have your job.
- Be an inspiration!  Be eager to fight and serve!
- Have fun!

As for who is eligible to be selected as Our Champions.

All citizens of Cynnabar will be duly considered. Citizens are any who
identify themselves as members of the Barony regardless of geographical
location. However geographical location may hinder the ability to perform
certain expected duties, and should be considered by the Tenan prior to
entering the Tourney.

In keeping with Baronial tradition, Knights, Masters at Arms, and Warders
of the Bronze Ring shall be welcome to participate in the Tourney, We would
see how Our potential Champions fare against the best opponents, but will
not be eligible to be selected as Champions.

If there are any questions about the above responsibilities and duties,
please feel free to contact us. If you have direct concerns about any of
the specifics...we are willing to discuss!

We hope to see you all at the Spring Revel!

Tairdelbach and Hannah
Baron and Baroness of Cynnabar
