Event details

100 Minutes War XXXI and East Kingdom Novice Day Event

As winter's woeful song begins to sweep across the woodlands once again, our thoughts turn to friends, a warm fire and War!!!  The Shire of Rusted Woodlands is delighted to invite the valiant warriors of The East Kingdom and her cousins to test their mettle once again at 100 Minutes War. 

This year we also welcome our East Kingdom Novices for the celebration of East Kingdom Novice Day Tournament before the start of the 100 Minutes War. 

***Although we strive to plan and produce the best possible event and experience for our local and expanded family, we cannot promise that the pandemic will not touch our event.  We will be increasing our volunteer staff, in order to keep up on our cleanliness.  Masks are absolutely required in the Hall and ground, this is not only our preference but it is now Kingdom Mandate.  If you are actively fighting you may remove your mask when your helmet is on.  We ask that all patrons social distance.  Hand sanitizer stations will be put up throughout the event space.  Given the growing concern with the Covid 19 virus, we support and are implementing the the Kingdom decision to have either your Covid Vaccination Card or an official negative test (within 72 hours) either digitally or on paper before being able to Troll in.  Your information will NOT be recorded in any way.  We do ask of you are feeling unwell, to please stay home.  ***

East Kingdom Novice Day will also be hosting an Arts and Sciences competition withing the main hall.  There will be a clearly marked table.  These submissions will be judged by peers and populace together, in order to show off the work in the best way.  The East Kingdom is very proud of all our competing Novices.
