End Date Jun 3, 2018

This year we are very excited that Her Highness, Princess Siobhán inghean uí Liatháin, has given us the honor to host the Spring Queen’s Rapier Championship! Come show your prowess with the blade to stand triumphant for the honor of our queen.

As usual heavy melee will happen and this year we will have youth fighting. For those less inclined to do battle there will be activities for the gentler arts. A cooking workshop on open fire is in the planning stages among other things. Keep an eye out on the Myrkfaelinn website for updated news.

Lady Meadbh ni Clerigh is preparing a whole range of children activities for our youth, so please bring them with you and keep her busy!

Calling all musicians! Come play around the campfire, by the lake, or near the QRC! We do have a Dominion law that states: “It is wrong to beat live musicians, even if they play badly.” So please bring your instruments (and voices) and join in the fun! Tiffany will have her vielle and plans to play throughout the event.
