CANCELLED: Trial by Fire and Lochmere Arrow
(2023-09-22 - 2023-09-24 - Site opens at 5:00 PM & Closes at 1:00 PM)
Bright Hills

It is with a heavy heart that after meeting/talking with the Baron, Baroness and several officers of the Barony of Bright Hills and looking at the expected weather for the Baltimore area, the Trial by fire/Lochmere Arrow event scheduled for 22-24 September is CANCELLED. -- Wanda the Wanderer 

Come check out "A Day in The Life" and witness the wonders of... Children of all ages having fun! Various crafts. Tales, stories, songs and music. Fighting (over a toy? A head of cabbage?) Possibly Fencing (and not the keeping in sorts!) Open Fire Cooking (Safely contained!) Watch a 2- person team compete for the coveted Bright Hills... erm, I mean the Lochmere Arrow. On Saturday, September 12th, 2023, come and be witness of the skills of our Atlantian Cooks and Archers. We meet on the "fields of battle" at the Baltimore Bowmen. Here will be decided the finest Cooks and mightiest Archers in our Faire Kingdom. Of course, we also invite any and all contestants from our sister Kingdoms to compete as well. This is a time when too many Cooks will not spoil anything!​ 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.
