To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of North Woods, we had two champions for each category. Due to the suspension of activities during the plague that occurred in our tenure, we retained our champions until we stepped down.
Thrown Weapons Champions: Master Nigellus le Paite and lady Brutis of Altenberg
Armored Champions: Sir Einarr Dunwulf Björnsson and Captain Bjarg Kormaksson
Archery Champion: Lord Ivarr of Altenberg and Lady Brynn Archer
Arts & Sciences Champion: Mistress Baroness Dulcinea Maria Magdalena Von Muhlberg y Aguilar and The Honorable Lady Siri Toivosdotter
Service Champion: Mistress Antoinette de Martel and The Honorable Lady Damiana Isabel Cardona
Rapier Champion: Master Maximilian Der Zauberer and Lord Horatio Archer
Added this year - Equestrian Champion: Lady Helena Falkenstein

Below was our process for selecting champions. This is retained as historical information.
After long thought and deliberation Baron Áindle and I have decided the following regarding the selection of our Baronial Champions (Adult and Youth).
The Baronial Brigade is a new group we established. Adults and youth in who we see Champion potential will be invited to join throughout the year. In the event that a Champion is not present at an event and we find ourselves in need of said Champion, a Brigade member may be asked to serve as Champion for the day. (Note: All the brigade members served as a Baronial Champion at some time in our tenure.)
Thrown Weapons Champions - Battle of the Inland Seas
Armored Champion - Tyger Hunt/Ale to the Victors
Archery Champion - Call of the Waterhorse
Arts & Sciences Champion - Grand Tour/Herald's Pointe and Scribal Collegium
Service Champion - Wassail
Rapier Champion - Pentamere Academy of Defense
