From the 4/12/14 Board of Directors meeting:
“Effective immediately, the use of spears, pikes and pole arms is prohibited in rapier tournament or rapier melee combat, and the Society Earl Marshal and Society Deputy Marshal for Rapier shall review the use of two handed swords in rapier combat.”
The East Kingdom Rapier Marshal, Don Caine Ramsey, went on to clarify:
“As spears, pikes or pole arms are not legal in the East, this is not a significant change.
However, any review of two-handers may cause some changes down the line. What those changes might be, are yet to be determined. Until such time as we have specifics on what this review entails, and what, if any, changes might be due this review are. It is business as usual for the use of two-handers.
We are waiting for more details from the SRM. As they roll out, I will forward them out to you”
