Saturday Morning we will have a QUEST! ! ! !

Saturday afternoon – Following the Quest activities will be the Captaincy Tournament! Heavy fighters come join us and exercise your prowess to see who will be the next Baronial Captain of the Guard.

Following the Captaincy tournament, at the Tundra Weasel Al Fresco Lounge - there will be a Baroness's Tea open to the populace!! Everyone in the populace is strongly encouraged to come, and please bring your stories and your companionship to share with the Baronesses of Winter's Gate. With this also being a 40th year celebration, we want to celebrate our history and our present beautiful inspirations who sit on our Baronial seats! Come and enjoy your seats of honor!

Archery will be going on Saturday during the daytime also. The exact schedule for this will be decided and announced at the event.

Paige School is getting a massive reboot!! This is an engaging, entertaining, and encompassing program for the young and the young at heart. Come talk to us about what the Page School is and decide how much you or the “treasures” in your household want to participate. Also, we will be asking fighters, administrators and others to accept page school participants to assist them in a variety of tasks.

Saturday evening – there will be a great feast, at no extra charge to the populace, that will be held in the Tundra Weasel Traveling Tavern and Al Fresco Lounge! So, save your food stores and join us for a family gathering dinner under the red and black canopy.
