Event details
The score is significant.  Two decades after the Horde’s first incursion into the Eastern Realm and we have not been idle.  We have seen the potential of this quaint subcontinent and our interests have not waned.  Unlike the initial expeditionary force, this time we are here en masse.

Choose your side, join the fray!

A.S.  52 marks the 20th Anniversary of The Silver Horde.  We have decided to celebrate the occasion with our favorite pastime:  a Mongol themed event!  And not just any event, a theme of equivalent proportion.

In the early 1220’s, Subedei Ba’atur led a reconnaissance in force through Kievan Rus, learning of the Western world, making alliances, and laying plans for a return.  A return which came on the 20th anniversary of the initial foray.

The Siege of Kiev marks the beginning of this triumphant return and is thus the theme of this event.

The battles were mighty and so we shall host marshal events in kind.  Heavy and light fighting, thrown and archery competitions are all planned for the siege.

This battle heralded a new era of trade and sparked a renaissance.  As such, merchants will be welcome and there will be an A&S display.  We would be most interested in a showing of cross-cultural influence between Eastern and Western Eurasia.

Heavy Battle Schedule:
Inspections and authorizations will begin at 11 AM.  Tourney begins at 1:00
An Atlantian speed tournament will be held to select commanders and teams will be divided.  Once sides have been chosen three field battles will be held as the forces of Batu Khan attack the relieving army of the Chorni Klobuky.  Next a resurrection gate battle will be held as the forces of Batu Khan and Möngke attack the Rus city of Kiev itself.  After a break a resurrection town battle will be held as the Mongol forces breach the walls of Kiev.

Archery and Thrown Weapons:
Archery Tourney begins at 12:00
The walls of Kiev have been breached!  The archery tourney will be run by Mungu Chinua of the Silver Horde.

Thrown weapons Tourney begins at 2:00
The town is in chaos and the people are fighting for their lives with their only defenses being, axes and knives.  Amidst all the chaos, the livestock have escaped their pens.There are ducks, and more ducks and geese everywhere!  Hrothgar will be running the thrown weapons tournament.  Let's hope is doesn't run a "fowl"! 

Court to follow tourneys at 4:00.

Arts and Sciences:
The mighty Khan requests artists to bring examples of there work to be displayed on Saturday.  Staying with the theme is a plus but he is a worldly Khan who is impressed with talents from foreign lands.

AoA Day - Saturday
Do you have a scroll that has a blank shield and needs your arms filled in? Have your arms been passed by the college of heralds?
If yes, bring your scroll to the event, along with a copy/print out of a picture of your arms, plus blazon.  There will be scribes on hand in the main hall to fill them in on your scroll and you can take your scroll back home at the end of the day.  We will do this up until the main hall is broken down for feast.  Please contact THL Vettorio Antonello vettorioantonello at yahoo dot com and Her Excellency Lada Monguligin ladie_lada at yahoo dot com with any questions or if you'd to help with the AoA day.

Stained Glass display - Saturday
Lord Conor O Ceallaigh will be displaying several stained glass pieces designed and fabricated by him.  He also handcrafted the medallions to be awarded the winners of the tournaments.  These medallions will also be on display.  Come and be awed and bedazzled by Lord Conor's artistry.
