Here are some changes to the usual Barony of Endewearde activities coming up this week and throughout the summer you may want to be aware of as you plan your family recreational time.

Medieval novice and experienced artisans meet on Sundays at the Bangor Housing Authority, 161 Davis Road in Bangor, Maine from 4:00-7:00 PM. Whether you are interested in learning about the wide variety of projects appropriate for the Middle Ages or are an experienced artisan, please feel free to join those gathering at the kitchen table just off the main gym floor or outside in fair weather.

Sunday, July 2: There will be a heavy list and rapier combat practice at the Bangor Housing Authority, 161 Davis Rd in Bangor, Maine as usual from 4:00-7:00 PM. Please note that Heavy List loaner gear will not be available; rapier combat loaner gear will be available as usual. If you usually borrow heavy list gear for practice please do not feel dissuaded from attending practice as out of armor drills can still happen! If enough people show up for heavy list there will be an impromptu infantry practice.

Please note that Sunday July 2nd is the last Endewearde heavy list practice for the rest of July and the first half of August. Adult Rapier Combat WILL continue to run this summer at this location unless a cancellation is announced here or on the Endewearde facebook discussion group.
