|Jehan's Fencing and Fighting at the Fort ||Event date: April 19th, 2014|
|Hosted by Barony of Endewearde - Prospect, ME||Event Last Modified: February 25th, 2014|
|The good people of the Barony of Endewearde once again ask your service in defending the ramparts of historic Fort Knox. Fencers and fighters of all ages are needed to help make the fort ready! Come, answer the call!!! Join in the fun and enter in the fencing tourney, the heavy weapons tourney, or the youth fighter tourney. You may choose to warm yourself by the fire in The Ruddy Mudder Tavern, enjoy a hot day board with soup, toasty bread, warm music, a bevy of tavern games, fine dance and the gentle Arts and Sciences...|
The Tavern theme this year is GAMES... GAMES... GAMES...
Everyone who attends is encouraged to bring a period game, or two, of their choice. If you have a favorite game, please bring it. If you want to learn a new game, please come! Everyone is encouraged to bring small favours/tokens to trade with the winner of each game you play.
Other activities you may find in the Tavern are sitting by a roaring fire with your handy works, dancing with Lady Mebbe, day board with Miss Emily, hot drinks and snacks with the Canton of Basingestoches (proposed), and A&S competition with Baroness Margaret.
The members of the newly organized Canton of Basingstoke will be offering hot refreshments and snacks throughout the day for your enjoyment as a fund raiser to assist in filling their coffers. We hope that they can start planning events and activities in the Down East (Ellsworth/MDI) region of the Barony with our help.
Please join Baroness Margaret in our Largess A&S Competition. To enter, create a set of 12 items worthy of donation to Endewearde's largesse stores. This could be a dozen completely identical items, similar items, or items without any obvious correlation. The sets will be displayed for judging with three winners - Baron's Choice, Baroness's Choice, and Populace's Choice. The three winners will win an item from each of the day's entries. The remaining items from each entry will go into the Endewearde Largess Coffers for future use, as their Excellencies deem fit.
We are pleased to announce that Their Excellencies, Baron Ané and Baroness Sylvia will be in attendance to hold this event's very first Baronial Court.
Please come to this historic site and enjoy time with friends, old and new
