SST Originally called Seagirt SECRET Tournament now called Seagirt SUMMER Tournament (SST). Event was often published in newsletter in code so that only those who truly wanted to find it would show up. Baron Gerhard of Lions Gate showed up at the first one. Desire was to have a tournament where a LOCAL person would win a title and be responsible for championing their cause here at home all year long. Original rules stated winner could NOT succeed themselves. Non-residents are permitted to compete and win prizes but NOT the title. In the event that a non-resident wins, the highest ranking local is given the title. If a local wins more than one they must CHOOSE which title they will hold. The second place finisher in the endeavour they do not choose is awarded that title. Now held in mid August at various locations. Over the years new champions were added: Heavy, Rapier, A&S, Archery. (Boffer champion is also held if the level of involvement warrants). Previous champions create format and run tournament to choose their successor.
Seagirt Yule - December.
