Hosted by Barony of Stonemarche - Richmond , NH
Event Last Modified: July 4th, 2017

Event details
The wars of summer are over and our brave warriors have returned home with tales of glory and songs of triumph and heartbreak.  We will raise a mug to those we have lost and regale each other with their deeds.  In this quiet time before the crops are harvested, wood is stacked and animals slaughtered in preparation of the long winter to come, the Barony of Stonemarche invites one and all to join us around the fire and share the stories and songs of the summer.

We are working on classes for bardic arts, dancing, arts and sciences, fighting, fencing, archery, and thrown weapons.  In addition, we will be having a special children's activities such as a glow battles and campfire songs/stories complete with special treats!  There is also a lovely lake which beckons an afternoon swim. 

CABINS:  Camp Takodah offers cabins for those who wish to use them and have lights and limited outlets.  Most of the cabins have 6 to 14 bunks and will be assigned based on group size and availability.  There are a few cabins which are accessible to those with mobility difficulties.  Cabins will not be assigned until shortly before the event.

MEAL PLAN:  We are offering a meal plan this year.  It will run from Friday night through Monday morning and includes Feast on Saturday night.  Everyone on the meal plan is expected to sign up to help prep, prepare, serve, or cleanup for a minimum of 1 meal.  This allows everyone to have a good time and not be stuck in the kitchen all day.  Youth (5-12) can sign up to help with serving and cleanup.

FEAST:  There is a lovely and scrumptious feast planned for Saturday night.  This is open to all and does not require you to be on meal plan to partake.  Gentles may sign up for tables starting at 11am on Saturday in the feast hall.  There will be limited seating available for offboard. 

A Preliminary Schedule of tournaments is shown below.  Anyone may enter and serve as a Baronial Champion provided they are willing to serve in such a capacity.
