Event details

Once again the Barony of Bhakail will be holding their Commons event, with rattan and rapier championships!

Tournament details TBA!

There is no site fee for this event and no feast.  There will be a potluck dayboard, please bring a dish to share.  There will be grills available for cooking and we will provide charcoal.  As the site is a state park, alcohol is not permitted.

There are picnic tables under the pavilion but we recommend you bring a chair to watch the fighting.  There will be plenty of room for pop-ups or pavilions.

This is a great event to bring friends and family who are interested in the SCA but have been intimidated by the cost of other events. 

The site is a state park.  There are a few paved paths leading to the bathrooms but much of the site is grass and the ground is uneven.

The park does permit dogs, please keep them leashed and clean up after them.
