Baronial thrown weapons will begin Wednesday April 26th (Weather & Range Conditions allowing). They will continue on a weekly basis Wednesdays 5:30 pm until dusk at the home of Lord Seamus in Hermon, Maine.

Here is the general practice schedule through July 2017

June 7, 14, 21, 28
July 5 (No practice), 12, 19 (No practice), 26

Thrown Weapons Rules Update: Parents & guardians of minors who throw, please note that there are significant changes in the rules regarding “under-age throwers”. There are no longer Youth Thrown Weapons Marshals in the East Kingdom. Throwers must be at least 5 years old (no change). For throwers from 5 to 17 years old: “A parent or legal guardian must be present when minors are on the range.” No exceptions and no marshal’s discretion in this matter. This is a change.

Please look for updates or contact Lord Seamus via the Endewearde facebook group
especially when weather conditions, such as rain, would lead you to believe that practice might be cancelled.

Note: The first practice on Wednesday, April 26 has been cancelled due to poor weather and field conditions. We’ll try again for thrown weapons practice next week.

Once again, the Barony of Endewearde will be hosting a rousing and raucous festival of armored combat and merriment. At the end of the day, the Endewearde armored combatant who stands victorious will be named Endewearde’s newest Champion of Armored Combat. Endewearde’s current armored champion, The Honorable Lord Gruffydd Abernathy, will oversee the challenges of the day and provide fun for the combatants as well as those in the galleries.

The event will be held at the same site as the Endewearde Hunt, for those familiar with that event. It’s a rustic, wooded site with plenty of room to roam and enjoy some peace and quiet between the bouts or during the lunch break. There’ll be a large cook fire maintained by Endewearde’s Court of Royal Foresters for anyone who wishes to prepare a hot lunch during the midday break. Above ground fire pits and grills are welcome, as well. Note that there is no running water on site so bring your own and please be prepared to pack out all your own trash as there will be no dumpsters.

COMBATANTS: During the tournament, a tourney tree will be used. Armored combatants will need to have a wooden shield plaque on which a representation of your arms must be painted. Blank shields will be provided ahead of time as needed.

The Honorable Lord Gruffydd Abernethy has the following announcement:

Fighters: If you plan to compete I will need you to get in contact with me by Sunday the 10th [September] although the sooner the better as I hear we have some folks who want to make things to cheer on their favorite fighters with. I will need to know who you have as your herald and your arms/ colors wouldn’t hurt. All are welcome to compete and there will be a prize for the best fighter, though the champion will be chosen from the pool of fighters from Endewearde.

Update: September 14, 2017

GUEST MINORS REQUIRED PAPERWORK

If you are planning to bring a Youth Minor (anyone under the age of 18) to a Society for Creative Anachronism event for whom you are not their parent or legal guardian, then you must obtain the proper forms and signatures. This policy applies to relatives of the guest minor as well (siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins).

You can read Endewearde’s FAQ for Guest Minors so you can plan to obtain the necessary forms, signatures and notary public services before the youth guest minor accompanies you to an event.
