Event Information

Trial By Fire & Lochmere Arrow (Take 2)
(2024-08-30 - 2024-09-01 - Site opens at 5 PM & Closes at 1 PM)
Bright Hills

Let us hope that Mother Nature will be more forgiving this year, as last year, we had to cancel this wonderful event! Calling all Archers and Cooks, and hopefully some fighters, as well! Come witness cooks from the Known World Compete for Bragging Rights (And Prizes!) or our famous Trial By Fire Competition! Watch the Mightiest of Achers test their skills against each other as they contend for the Coveted Lochmere Arrow! Stay (and mayhap, help provide for?) the potluck feast to taste the goodness of what has been toiled for over the fire and listen to many tell of their glorious victories of the day. For the first time, YOUTH Fighting! Camping is Available and there is no extra fee.
