June 8 2019 (9 AM - 5 PM )
Shire of Roxbury Mill
On June 8th, 2019, come to the Shire of Roxbury Mill for the hit sequel to last year's Skewered!. At Skewered! 2, it's dangerous to go alone -- so bring a friend. There will be Rapier, Archery, Arts & Sciences and Bardic Competitions, as well as a hot lunch feast as a Shire fundraiser.
Martial Activities: Rapier: RMIC Ffernfael Ap Kymro.
It truly is dangerous to fight by oneself, so this eventâ€™s activities will focus on pairs. Paired Valhalla melee will start the day, followed by a Bedford tourney in which prizes will be awarded to the Valhalla pair with the highest combined mean score. After a break for lunch, activities will continue with a Blacksword and Free Scholar Prize.
Archery: AMIC Gregge the Archer. TBD
Overall MiC: Maestra Caitilin inghean Fheichin
Arts & Sciences Activities: A&S: MoAS Lady Elenor de La Rochelle alias Ela and Sarah La Malade. â€œJack of Two Tradesâ€ A&S Competition!
Entries should fall into at least one
of the following categories:
â€¢ one item made using two different techniques (for example, a handsewn fabric bag with hand-cast metal fittings)
â€¢ two items of the same kind made with different techniques (for example, a glass bowl and a pottery bowl)
â€¢ two items of the same kind from different time periods (for example, a 9th-century necklace and 16th-century necklace)
Only work in one area? Enter with a friendâ€”pairs are encouraged! Documentation is required to explain how the item(s) fit(s) the competition; EZ-Doc is more than acceptable. There will be a prize for best entry! This competition will be judged based on populace voting, but feedback will also be given to any entrants who request it when dropping off entries.
