Event details

The wars of summer are over and our brave warriors have returned home with tales of glory and songs of triumph and heartbreak.  In this quiet time before the crops are harvested, wood is stacked and animals slaughtered in preparation of the long winter to come, the Barony of Stonemarche invites one and all to join us around the fire as we regale Their Majesties, King Ôzurr and Queen Fortune with the stories and songs.

Harper’s Retreat is a quiet little event centering around the bardic arts.  Tournaments for Baronial Champions for Bardic, Archery, Fighting, Fencing, and Thrown Weapons are open to all.  Champions are not required to live in the Barony, but must be willing to serve the Barony for one year.  Please let the tournament organizer know if you do not wish to be considered for a Champion.  There will be other activities for those wishing to pursue them, or just enjoy the spender of the site, a dip in the lake and the company of good friends around the campfire at night.

Cabins:  Camp Takodah offers cabins, for those who wish to use them, which have lights and limited outlets.  Most of the cabins have 6 to 14 bunks and will be assigned based on group size and availability.  There are a few cabins which are accessible to those with mobility difficulties.  Cabins will not be assigned until shortly before the event.  Beds (bunks) are being reserved individually.  You may reserve one for yourself and a second one for your belongings.  There is also space for those who wish to set up tents.

Meal Plan:  Our offering this year will be based on last years menu.  It will run from Friday night through Monday morning and includes Feast on Saturday night.  Everyone on the meal plan is expected to sign up to help prep, prepare, serve, or cleanup for a minimum of 1 meal.  This allows everyone to have a good time and not be stuck in the kitchen all day.  Youth (5-12) can sign up to help with serving and cleanup.

Feast:  There is a lovely and scrumptious feast planned for Saturday night.  This is open to all and does not require you to be on meal plan to partake.  Gentles may sign up for tables starting at 11am on Saturday in the feast hall.  There will be limited seating available for offboard.
