|The Spring Viking Thing ||Event date: June 7th, 2014|
|Hosted by Shire of Owlsherst - York Haven, PA||Event Last Modified: February 19th, 2014|
|Good gentles of all times and places! Come with us as the Nordmann gather for their Thing, have their grievances heard, and contest to find their greatest heroes to go a-viking!|
Whether friend or foe, all are welcome to join our celebration of the Viking Age, when the Norse were fierce fighters, as well as tradesmen, merchants, artisans and farmers. Test your heavy combat skills against fate in the “Wheel of Destiny” tourney. Compare your artistry and scientific knowledge in the arts and sciences competition. Challenge your accuracy with archery and thrown weapons. Discover if you have what it takes to be chosen as the “lawspeaker”.
A selection of hearty fare will be provided for at midday on our dayboard. Our talented Cook’s Guild shall sate our palates with a sumptuous feast worthy of Valhalla! (If you have any food allergies or diet restrictions, please contact the autocrat as soon as possible.)
