Pennsic is behind us and you might be missing the camping or the spending time with your friends and family or maybe you were unable to go to Pennsic this year.  Either way River Wars gives you another chance to get your camping gear out and spend a weekend doing all of your favorite things.

As is our tradition for River Wars there will be activities for almost every interest:  Armored combat, Rapier combat, Thrown weapons, Archery, an A & S row, Food and more.

Speaking of more, their Excellencies of Iron Bog will be in search of a new A&S Champion, Thrown Weapons Champion, and an Archery champion --Will you be the one to rise to one or maybe even more of these challenges?
