Defenders for 2016


This past weekend at the Lovely Sommer Draw event held by the Barony of Bergental. It is a great local event with  Archery, Fencing, Fighting and other activities that I would encourage anyone to go to.   Before getting to announcing the Defenders, I would like to give a word of thanks to Lady Elvira, Lady Toi and whomever else helped with the day board, it was quite tasty.  Also I would like to thank Madame Perronnelle de Croy for her fine work with the Youth activities at the event.

With the blessing of Bergental, Quintavia picked  the Defenders from those who live within the shire’s borders and did the best in the respective tournament/competition.   Without further ado I present the Defenders for the 2016 year.


The Defenders of 2016

Award Winner
Arts & Sciences Lady Toi Poisson de Mortagne
Heavy List Baron Matthias Grunwald
Rapier Lord Gregor Mac Eoain
Archery Boyar Aleksei Dmitriev
Thrown Weapons (none chosen/no tourney held)

Thank you again for everyone who pitched in, had fun, and in general made for a relaxing local event.

Quintavian Defender’s Tourney 2016


The Defenders are the Shire of Quintavia’s Champions. They have won the right to bear their titles and regalia through our annual Defender’s Tourney.

This year we will be choosing the defenders with the good will of our Neighbors in Bergental at their annual Sommer Draw event at the beautiful Moses scout reservation, June 15-17th.(The tournaments will be on the 16th)   The shire member that places the best in each of the competition will be named as the Defender for the current year.

Specific to the Arts and Science competition 

Our annual Arts and Sciences competition is being held at Sommer Draw in Bergental this weekend. Bring your best completed projects or works in progress. Documentation will not be required, but you will be asked to provide a quick write up describing your submission. The entries will be judged blindly by a panel of judges and populace vote. Good luck to all, and we look forward to seeing your projects next weekend!

If you are curious on the shire borders, please see this map.

More information on the Defenders, and who the current / past champions where can be found here,

For those who won’t be at 50th year, come and partake in a day of friendly competition and comradeship. I look forward to seeing you there.
