Beseeching all West Kingdom Rapier Fighters! Master Thorn calls upon you to take up your steel for a day of Rapier melees and tournaments in preparation for WAR! A second-annual ALL-RAPIER event which is the fall-season's counterpart to the famed Falcon's Treaty. It is just a couple weeks before Great Western War in order to serve as the perfect opportunity to hone your melee and tourney skills prior to WAR! Presenting ... Drake's Treatise: il Secondo!
Drake's Treatise 2017 had more than 30 active Rapier enthusiasts fighting at it. Let's get above 50 this year!
It'll be a day brimming over with Rapier prize tournaments, C&T, and melees. This year we'll optimize a bit so we can have almost all the tournaments in the first 2 fifths or so of the day and all the melees and the five-man tourney in the later 2 fifths. There will be a couple of simultaneous one-on-one tournaments running (to fit those into the early part of the day and so we can have double elimination in those tourneys). More details coming next month stay tuned!
We’ll have the same great, centrally-located venue as last year: Andrews Park Amphitheater 614 E Monte Vista Ave, Vacaville CA 95688 and site fees will be the same at only $10 for members($15 for non-members).. And our timing is the same as last year: Sunday September 23rd perfect to get you tuned up for GWW!
