Tournament 2017


The tournament will be held during Sunday the 24th of September 2017 throughout the day. The rules will be essentially what has been used in the Nordic League and tournaments such as Swordfish or the Dutch Lions Cup these past years. You can download the rules here (PDF; new version 1.4 published on 20th of September 2017!), and a video describing them is found here. This year, we will have a projector and a screen at every ring, where the names and the current score will be on display. This will provide more overview to judges and fighters, as well make the fights more enjoyable to watch. Per ring, we will have four judges, one referee and one scorer. The results of the entire tournament will be uploaded to the world-wide tournament ranking, HEMA Ratings (beta), which can be found at hematratings.com. So after participation, you will be part of the global ranking. There will be medals and nice prizes to win – the winner will get an exclusive black Regenyei feather! Additionally, there will be a technical award with the jury being both the fighters and spectators. We’re still looking for more judges in order to put less load on the ones we already have – so consider signung up as a judge, as this will grant you a free entry to the event. However, consider that you’ll have to practice using the rules and the flags before the tournament. We’re looking forward to a fun and interesting tournament!

Das Turnier wird am Sonntag, 24. September 2017 während des ganzen Tages stattfinden. Die Regeln orientieren sich hauptsächlich an der Nordic League und Turnieren wie Swordfish oder dem Dutch Lions Cup der letzten Jahre. Die Regeln sind hier (PDF; neue Version vom 20. September 2017), und ein Video mit einer Beschreibung findet sich hier. Dieses Jahr werden wir Projektoren und Leinwände bei jedem Ring haben, auf denen die Namen und Punktestände der Kämpfer ersichtlich sind – zur besseren Orientierung von Schiedsrichtern, Kämpfern und den Zuschauern. Es wird 4 Seitenschiedsrichter, ein Hauptschiedsrichter und einen Scorer pro Ring geben, und die Resultate werden ihren weg in das globale Ranking-System für Turnierkämpfer finden, HEMA Ratings (beta), zu finden unter hematratings.com. ! Es wird einige Preise zu gewinnen – den Erstplazierten lockt eine exklusive schwarze Fechtfeder! Es wird jedoch auch einen Technikpreis geben – die Punkte dafür werden von den Kämpfern selbst sowie den Zuschauern vergeben. Weitere Schiedsrichter werden immer noch gesucht – als Dankeschön gibt es einen gratis Eintritt für das Gathering. Als Voraussetzung wird einfach erwartet, dass man die Regeln und das System mit den Flaggen vor dem Event für sich bzw. im Verein übt. Wir freuen uns auf ein spannendes Turnier!
