Hidden Mountain Baronial Birthday
March 25- 27, 2016
Barony of Hidden Mountain
Friends, come help Hidden Mountain celebrate our 32nd Birthday as a Barony! We’ll have competitions for Warriors and Artisans alike, new Champions will be chosen, glorious tales of the days of old will be told, and there will be much delicious feasting!
Our theme this year is the Byzantine Empire (Eastern Roman Empire). Foods, costumes, A&S and our archery shoot will center around this theme.
Activities will also include Syr Eldon Ungol celebrating the 30th anniversary of his knighting with a ‘best death’ competition during the main Armored Tournament with a live steel prize. And, of course, much re-uniting of old friends who rarely, or have not for many years, seen each other.
New Baronial Champions will be chosen, including: Armored, Rapier, Archer, Arts & Sciences, and Bardic.
Martial Activities: Armored Combat, Rapier combat, and Target archery.
