Event details
As the winds howl and the skies darken we offer greetings of the season to all!  Once again we throw open the hall doors and offer shelter to our friends far and near.  Join us at our groaning board and partake of our wassail bowl.  Come celebrate with us the traditions of this joyful time!

Our honorable fighters will prove their might in a spear tourney and show their skill and creativity in our popular Crestfallen Tourney!  Bring forth your best helm, decorated in the theme of the season!  Win renown far and wide with the best crest or possibly the best crest death!

Our fencers will not be left out as they exhibit just how sharp their wits are!

As outdoor activities wind down it is a good time to learn a new skill to practice over the winter.  Learn period songs of the season and join us in a round of caroling or learn period board games (and even make your own "board") to while away the winter nights by the fire.

Our popular cookie sale is back!  This will once again benefit the Royal Travel Fund.  Donations of cookies packaged in disposable containers greatly appreciated.  Please include a list of ingredients.

As in past years there will be a silent auction to benefit Bergental and BBM baronial programs (specifics to follow).  Donations gratefully accepted of items of SCA interest.  This is a fabulous way to help some of your unused items find a new home.

A light dayboard will be served at midday and the day will end with a wonderful feast.
