|Warrior's Naadam **UPDATED**
||Event date: October 19th, 2007 - October 21st, 2007|
|Hosted by Crown Province of Ostgardr - Carmel, NY||Event Last Modified: August 28th, 2007|
|The Silver Horde is celebrating its 10th Anniversary by throwing a Mongol themed event in the Crown Province of Ostgardr. All are invited to enjoy the hospitality of the Steppe from all corners of the Mongol Yoke, and visitors from the land of the Francs will be most welcome. |
The Naadam tournament will test the three skills necessary to every Mongol warrior: combat, archery and horsemanship. The heavy weapons portion will be in the form of a Warlords Tourney in honor of the gathering of the tribes by Chinggis Khaan, starting promptly at 1pm. The archery portion will test your accuracy. The mounted portion will test weapon skill from horseback. Both the archery and horseback competitions can be entered at any time during the day. As all these skills are essential to Steppe warfare, a person must enter at least two of these tourneys to qualify to be overall winner of the Iron Man tourney. The Tourney will also be open to youths - they may compete in the Archery and Equestrin portions with the Adults and there will be a Youth List open for the Heavy Wepons portion.
Aside form the main tournament, there will be an open Bear Pit for heavy weapons, Royal Rounds for archers, and classes for the equestrian minded, all held throughout the day. Authorizations will be held from 10am till Noon. For those who intend to ride who do not own a horse, please arrange a mount in advance as horses will be limited.
As artisans are highly valued on the Steppe, there will be an A&S display featuring the finest Asian wares. Children's games will be available to learn and play. In the finest of Mongol traditions, there will be a Beauty Pageant late in the day.
The day's activities will conclude with a hearty Mongolian feast fit for a Khan but served for 100. Enjoy a true taste of Mongolian culture. Note from the head cook - Meat meat, meat!!!!

|Putnam County Veteran's Memorial Park|
201 Gipsy Trail Rd.
Carmel, NY 10512
On Route 84, about 24 miles east of its Hudson River crossing at the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge, about 12 miles east of the Taconic State Parkway, and about 3 miles west of the junction of Route 684, is exit 19. Take it and go east on route 312, toward Carmel. A reassuring landmark, Tilly Foster Farm, will appear on your right. About a mile later, at the end of 312, make a right onto Route 6. About 2 miles later, route 6 joins with route 52 at Lake Gleneida. Turn right, then after a few blocks, at the end of the lake, make your first left onto Route 301. This road is on the north shore of the lake which you now see on your left, then on the south shore of another lake you see on your right. A sharp bend to your right, still on 301, and you're going across this lake, over a brick bridge-like structure. At the end, route 301 makes a left, but you make a right, onto Gipsy Trail Road. A little less than a mile later, the road bends sharply to your left. Soon on the right is what looks like a 19th-century chapel under construction. Before it is the entrance to the park.
