|Hosted by Shire of Anglespur - East Greenbush, NY||Event Last Modified: July 15th, 2014|
|The Great War is behind us. Weary warriors have returned home to rest themselves. Pennsic mud has been washed out of clothing . . . repeatedly. Summer is coming to a close and Autumn draws near. But wait! Don't sheathe your sword, pack away your bow and arrows, hang up your ball gown and slippers, or fold up your tent just yet. The Shire of Anglespur proudly invites you to attend our annual Hunter's Moon event. It will be a weekend filled with many different activities and many new experiences to try. This year's array of activities include:|
-Heavy Fighting: Once again this year, we are having a fighter's symposium. Come and hone your skills! Each day, inspections begin at 11am. Fighting will take place from 12-5pm on the large list field(s). Saturday will be training day. Sunday will feature a melee and "something fun."
-Fencing: Details to follow
Metalsmiths Symposium: Activities are planned for the entire weekend.
-Arts and Sciences: Come and play with us! Saturday will be filled with fiber, and Sunday will be a day of "hot stuff." Whether weaving, spinning, bead making, or metal casting is your fancy, we invite you to show off your skills and perhaps learn something new! Specific classes, locations, and teachers to be announced.
-Dancing: Join us for our traditional evenings of terpsichorean delight! Dancing will occur on Saturday and Sunday evenings at the main pavilion, beginning at "o'dark thirty" (8pm) and ending when we all fall down. Musicians are gladly welcomed to play with us!
-Thrown Weapons: Will be present. Details to follow
-Archery: Will be present. Details to follow
