It is no longer spring. The band of adventurers' early return was drastically delayed by a horde of scurrilous Danes who attempted to intercept our heroess near the end of their longvoyage. After many close escapes, they (the good guys) have arrived in time for the Winter's Gate Rapier Commander tourney. Some of the strange food from a very distant land even survived the failed hijacking. It is time to gather and show our defiance to the upcoming winter months (and those pusillanimous Danes) with a combined Fools Revel and Commander Tourney. The theme will remain Viking Luau.
There will be a grand felt food fight, the felt food will be sewn on site and will be a fun activity for kids of all ages.
Details concerning the Commander Tourney, A & S, and other aspects of the event will follow.
The Fool's competition will remain foolish behavior and garb, however, the story theme will center around our heroes thwarting the Danish interception attempt.
The Baron's Whim is for SCA legal throwing weapons for war.
A stew and rolls will be provided for lunch and dinner will be pot luck, with roasted boar provided by the Barony. Please bring enough for 6-8 and an ingredient list. Questions should be addressed to Ellisif.
