Trial by Fire

June 14 (3:00 PM) - 16 (10:00), 2019
Barony of Bright Hills

Description: Once again, in the Spirit of Friendly Competition, the Bright Hills Cooks Guild and Archers invite the Knowne World to Trial by Fire 22 and the Lochmere Arrow Competitions. Competitors in both contests will vie for treasures, titles and bragging rights. Archers will vie for the prized “Lochmere Arrow”. Can it be wrested from its current holders? Will it ever be painted in different colours? Only time and a high scores will tell. Cooks have the chance to become known for their prowess in concocting dishes in any of four categories…Grain, Main Dish, Vegetables and Dessert under conditions found at the Pennsic War (no electric appliances). One may even move on to become Grand Champion. There will be classes offered on Saturday for any and all in attendance. The Bards of Atlantia will serenade with song and story all through the weekend with special entertainment around the camp fire.
