Event details
Now that the great war of Pennsic has been fought, it is time to hold not just one, but numerous prize tourneys for the enjoyment of all.  So, come test your skill in archery, fencing, heavy list and thrown weapons.

In addition, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Baron Fergus and Baroness Imigla, Baronial Championships for the Barony of Carolingia will be held for archery, arts & sciences, fencing, heavy list, performing arts and thrown weapons.

Given all of these activities, please car pool so we don't overflow the parking lot.
