Event details
After the resounding success of last year's Warrior's Naadam, we have decided to do it again!  The Silver Horde is once again hosting a Mongol themed event, sponsored by 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 later in the day at 3pm.  The archery portion will test your accuracy, and competitors are encouraged to shoot earlier in the day before the heavy weapons.  Accuracy with thrown weapons will also be tested.  The mounted portion will test weapon skill from horseback.  Both the archery and thrown weapons competitions can be entered at any time during the day.  The mounted portion will be earlier in the day.  There are plans for mounted archery as well.

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, thrown weapons, and equestrian portions along side the adults and there will be a youth combat list open for the combat portion in place of heavy weapons, counting full value towards the Iron Man tourney score.

Aside from the main tournament, the list field will be open all day for heavy weapons, and space will be made available for fencing.  Authorizations and lessons will be encouraged to be done in the morning.  For those who intend to ride and do not own a horse, please arrange a mount in advance as horses will be limited.

There will be a dayboard prepared by Baron Otto von Ulm and Feast will be assortment of food from the steppe with some Mughal tastes added in.  The Feast will be prepared by Jaji and Asa In Svarta.  Please contact our kitcheners for any dietary restrictions BEFORE the day of the event.  For those with horses, dayboard will be provided in the equestrian area.  Also for any who may be interested or otherwise can't leave the area, we will be setting up a feast tent in the equestrian area - If you wish to take advantage of this please e-mail the Autocrat and/or Equestrian Marshal so we may properly prepare .

As artisans are highly valued on the Steppe, there will be an A&S Display featuring the finest Asian wares.  Children's games, such as Shagai, will be available to learn and play.  Bards, known as Tuulich on the steppe, from all lands are welcome to entertain for the evening's revelries.

Site info - Site is DRY.  No ground fires.  There are pets allowed.

Gentles wishing to bring a horse to the event must contact the Equestrian Marshal-in-Charge beforehand.  Current Coggins test and appropriate travel paperwork for New York State must be produced before unloading the horse from the trailer.

Site Opens: Friday 4pm
Site Closes: Sunday 12pm
