Summer War Practice 2023

It’s time to plan for War. Join The Dominion of Myrkfaelinn for a day of Heavy and Fencing Melee.

As of noon, May 22, we are confirming that this event will still take place at Camp Barton on the weekend of June 2-4. A variance allowing this was received, and we apologize for any confusion that may have resulted from earlier uncertainty.

We will also have youth activities and Thrown Weapons. Not your interest? Then join us under the pavilion to hang out and work on a project or start a new one. Lady Asteriya will be doing a workshop on beginning spiral Celtic patterns and knot work boarders used in illuminations.
