Event details

Archers!  Axe throwers!  Fencers!  Armored warriors!  Youth combatants!  Artistic wielders of pen, needle, loom, leather, or fiber!  Spring has arrived!  Time to plan your trek to the green fields of Greenfield and the beautiful Camp Lion Knoll!

First and foremost, our esteemed Baron Johannes challenges all to stand for Bergental as Archery or Thrown Weapons Champions!  The current Champions are preparing challenging contests sure to test your prowess with all things pointy!

Come one!  Come all!  The barony of Bergental is in need of a new archery champion!  This year's tournament to decide who shall stand to represent the barony will be a walk through some of long and storied battles of the English longbow.  Will you stand on the deck of the Mary Rose? Face the charge of the flower of French chivalry at Agincourt? See off the Scots at Homledon Hill? Come and test your skills as we walk backwards through hundreds of years of history.

Prepare yourself for the Bergental Thrown Weapons Championship Tournament!  Throwers will be tested against a variety of different challenges, not focusing purely on accuracy, but versatility as well.  There will be no bulls-eyes on these targets, you will face a different sort of trial.  Show off your prowess with Axe, Knife, and Spear, and take a chance to become Bergental’s next Thrown Weapons Champion!

There's room for many more activities and a lovely flat grassy area available for those you wish to camp! 

Site Opens: 5:00 PM Fri, 10AM Sat
Site Closes: Sunday at noon
