Here begins the court report for Uilliam and Constance, Baron and Baroness of the Debatable Lands, with the permission of Their Sylvan Majesties Titus and Anna Leigh, at Agincourt 25 October, AS49, Drotinn Jorundr hinn Rotinn, Comet Pursuivant, reporting.
His Excellency wished to thank everyone for attending this day. He has autocrated this event for 9 years in a row now, now that he has stepped up as baron it isn't easy, but it is still worth it. The weather this year is great at the end of October it is warm enough with mild weather to allow an outdoor court at the end of the day.
There was a 50/50 raffle held this day to raise money for the baronial storage unit. It was very successful, the winner, whose ticket was drawn in court, was Nikolai. The funds raised were delivered to Lady Hara Kikumatsu, the baronial exchequer.
This day there was a championship held this day to determine who would step up to take THL Jussie Laplein's place as baronial rattan champion, for after his very successful year as champion including taking second place in the 7 Pearls rattan championship, he was ready to step down. One did rise to the top of the pool of fighters to take the mantle of champion. THL Lothar Hügelman was that winner and was duly invested with the regalia of the heavy weapons champion.
Lord Robert MacEwin of Thornhill has served as youth fighting champion of the barony many times, and wished to step down from this position which he currently holds. At this time there is no one to take the position so it will be left vacant at this time and a tournament will be held later to fill the position.
There was an Arts and Sciences Competition held this day. Ishiyama-roku-i Gentarou Yori-ie ran a leatherworking competition as St Crispin is the patron saint of leatherworking. The merchants at the event donated fabulous prizes which were goven to the winner. The winner of the leatherworking competition was THL Gunther Grunbaum for his tooled and painted leather pouch. Her Majesty's choice was Shishido-sama Tora Gozen for her horse equippage, and the fabulous book of documentation that she wrote for it. The Baroness' choice was THL Aíbell Shúlúaine for her beaded veil. Ishiyama wished to thank all who entered, this was the largest leatherworking competition at this event yet with 5 entries.
There was one present whose actions have earned great renown. Mistress Cassadoria Finialla continues to attend Steltonwald's sewing meetings and offer her assistance to those who need it, after many years of doing so for everyone in Steltonwald, for this Their Excellencies awarded her a Gold Comet.

Lady Fiora d'Artusio has done much good work in bringing the College of C'Dour out of dormancy. She has recruited people and helped them get garb and she has taught them fencing, while doing all this Fiora still has time to guard and retain for many sets of royalty, these actions please Their Excellencies and so They awarded her a Gold Comet.

Lady Verena Witkopf has been instrumental in the College of C'Dour coming out of dormancy, she has served as A&S Minister and organized calligraphy classes and new member meetings, this moved Their Excellencies to award her a Gold Comet. Scroll illuminated by Isabel Fleuretan with calligraphy by Kameshima Zentarou Umakai.
There is yet one more without whom C'Dour would still be dormant. Don William Paris has served as the C'Dour Knight Marshal as well as serving as a fencing marshal for a long time, this is a worthy endeavor and thus Their Excellencies awarded him a Gold Comet. Scroll illuminated by Isabel Fleurtan with calligraphy by Kameshima Zentarou Umakai.
Their Excellencies have been served by THL Caelinn as Their Head Retainer since they were invested as Baron and Baroness. However, Caelinn is ready to step down from this position and give way to another, thus Baroness Alexandra dei Campagnella will be taking over this role.
Sir Thorgrim Skullsplitter the regional commander offered a challenge to the region. He did not appreciate what the Midrealm archers did to the Æthelmearc army at Pennsic this year. Thus he challenges the region to field 20 combat archers b y February. He and his staff will assist with any training necessary to accomplish this.
Lord Eiden Abdul Salaam ibn Sala was awarded arms on the field at Pennsic, however due to weather Eiden had run back to camp, and he was not present to receive his scroll. Thus today he was united with his scroll.
His Excellency wished to make it known that those who were not staying for feast were missing out. Meesteres Odriana vander Brugghe had planned a truly remarkable spread for this year's celebration of St Crispin's feast.
