Sheep Raids 1418
November 09- 11, 2018
Shire of Seareach
Harken back to those simpler days when the hardest thing a shepherd had to do was defend their sheep from the occasional wolf or filthy thief. Now arm those shepherds with pointy things and you've got Sheep Raids!
Full of fun, food, and plenty of sheep-related things there is something for everyone! Your registration fee even includes access to the catch-and-release fishing pond. Bring your horse and enjoy the riding trail, or for $25 you can signup for a ride with an on-site horse!
There's fighting! There's camping! There's arts! There's sciences! There's sheep... stuff! But do you know what there isn't? Points on hats! That's right, you can leave the weight of those pointy hats behind and enjoy a totally pointless event.
What do you mean POINTLESS?
Sheep Raids has been designated as a "peasant event" where the game is to recreate a peasant town. There are no lords or ladies and all of the nobility are off doing more noble things. This is an opportunity for those with pointy hats to be able to relax with no responsibilities (beyond saving their sheep). There's no court, no hierarchy, just fun!
Leashed pets are welcome. Site is wet.
Above ground fires only.
Martial Activities: Heavy
There will be melee and tournament style heavy fighting scenarios available. Details TBA.
The riding ring has been booked, and Equestrian activities will be available! Details TBA.

The theme for the day is sheep! And there is something for everyone.
Everything Sheep: Eat it. Use it. Wear it. We would love to see what you bring for display. Weaving, Spinning, Felting, Cooking, Leatherworking, Soap making - it's all welcome. Don't sweat the documentation, this just about sharing sheep-related handiwork! The Populace members will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite items.
Dress that adorable dog up as a sheep for the amusement of others! Also a prize. But let's be honest... it's more about the amusement.
