BREAKING NEWS! This just in! Word has reached the Barony of St. Swithin’s Bog that an invasion force of Valiant Vikings is headed their way. Land fall has been estimated for mid July 13-15, 2018. The Baron and Baroness have been informed to be prepared for incursions from all compass points. But wait, there’s no reason to run screaming into the night! The Vikings are not out to steal the illustrious Saint’s Relic, the Gobi recipe, nor to ravage and despoil the lands. NO! They are coming to participate in the Bog’s Annual Three-day Event. Fighting? Of course there will be fighting! The Bog has the honor of hosting the next leg of the Æthelmearc 500 again this year! That’s not all, there will also be lots of Heavy Weapons, Fencing, Thrown Weapons, Youth Fighting and more. This will be a day of martial activities to satisfy even the hardiest of competitors.
For those gentles not martially inclined, there will be an A&S display which everyone is encouraged to enter. We will also be hosting the 10th annual Iron Scribe Competition. There are also several (adult friendly) children’s activities in the works.
