|Warriors Naadam **UPDATED** ||Event date: October 9th, 2009 - October 11th, 2009|
|Hosted by Canton of Northpass - Carmel, NY||Event Last Modified: July 27th, 2009|
|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, 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. The Tournament Schedule will be posted on the event website.
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 hearty dayboard for all Prepared by Mistress Annekje (formerly Andrea McIntyre).
Feast will be a treat that will be sure to satisfy, from the words of our feastocrat: "Warriors and commoners alike, come taste the foods from the vast reaches of the Mongol Empire. From the windy Steppe to the frozen reaches of Russia. Join us on the cool October evening and share a hearty meal to delight and satisfy all palates."
As artisans are highly valued on the Steppe, there will be an A&S Display featuring the finest Asian wares. 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.
