  • Adult Heavy list singles tournament and melee
  • Adult Rapier combat singles tournament, melee inside the fort

The Endewearde Hunt: Friday – Monday, October 6-9, 2017

EVENT DESCRIPTION

The forests of Endewearde are vast and with Autumn upon us, the gentles gather together in the hollow to seek out friendship, knowledge, skill and fame. The Endewearde Hunt boasts all of these things and more. The maples and oaks watch over as a new Baronial Archery and Thrown Weapons Champions are sought through displays of prowess. Under the pines, people gather to learn arts and sciences from others. Their Excellencies watch over the populace with love and admiration. Joyous days are had by all.

Endewearde’s premier camping event takes place in Newburgh, Maine and will be filled with archery and thrown weapons competitions, the famous Woods Walk, a potables round table, a vast A&S track, and more! There is some rumor of a bit of fencing, as well!

This year will also feature the Second Annual Malweardian Naval Battle. Prepare your small siege weapons to attack the floating boats on the pond. More details will be released closer to the event itself.

A sausage fundraiser will take place on Friday evening for a nominal fee.

There will be no Saturday dayboard planned. Instead, Saturday evening will play host to a potluck of vast proportions. If you wish to participate, please bring a dish to share and remember your feast gear. All kinds of dishes welcome!

The site offers primitive camping and above ground fire pits are welcome! Dogs are also permitted, but must remain on a lead at all times. The location has no running water, so please plan accordingly. Port-o-Castles will be located throughout the site for your convenience.

If you are interested in teaching a class for the Arts & Sciences track, a fillable form will be available closer to the event.

Merchants are welcome, as always, but must contact the autocrat. Priority space will be given in order to those who contact the autocrat.

NOTES ABOUT THE SITE

Trash: There are no trash receptacles on site. Please plan to pack out your own trash.

Drinking Water: This is a primitive site. There is no potable water available. There is no running water available for washing or bathing. Please plan to bring whatever water you need for the duration of your stay.

Handicap Accessibility: You should be able to drive a car down into the camping areas to unload and unpack. There are some minor hills but most of the main areas are accessible if a person can traverse a minor slope with a lawn surface.

A WORD FROM THE FORESTERS OF ENDEWEARDE

There will be 9 red fire buckets in visible locations throughout the site. They will be filled with pond water to be used for extinguishing your campfires. Please feel free to use the bucket and return it to where you found it. The Foresters will take on the responsibility of refilling them throughout the weekend.

Reminder: These buckets are filled with pond water, not potable water. Please don’t drink it.

Activity Details

Malweardian Naval Battle
Baroness Margaret of Rochester

“Once again, the combined forces from Endewearde, Malagentia, Hadchester, and foreign defenders will be used to repel a Mighty Naval Armada from our pond!

This year, due to safety considerations, we will NOT include target or combat archery methods. Table top trebuchets, old fashioned pitching arms, and other similarly ranged/weighted methods will be welcomed to defend our homeland. For the sake of the peaceful living wildlife in the pond, we ask that all ammunition be biodegradable.”

Celebration of the Feast of Saint Sylvester, Saturday, January 2, 2016

Feast-Hall-edit01

Before the dawn of a new day the staff of the seaside Canton of Basingestoches have arisen and are preparing to welcome guests for its second celebration of the Feast of Saint Sylvester. The reservations clerk has carefully tallied monies, the grand feast hall has been swept and adorned in grand furnishings, the head cook and her staff have lovingly wrought their kitchen magics to bring forth a culinary spectacle as never before seen in these fair coastal lands of the Barony of Endewearde.

Heraldic_RoseOnce again the Barony of Endewearde offers the chance to fight and fence within a granite fort – more atmospheric than a school gymnasium. Jehan’s Fighting and Fencing at the Fort will feature youth combat, youth rapier, adult rapier and armored combat tournaments, with some melees afterwards for the adults (think stair pit).

For those not martially inclined, there will be a tavern run by Lord Neville Sudlow with a warm fire, good company and a chance to purchase hot food and beverages from the canton of Basingestoches. You are also welcome to bring your own food, as there will be no day board. Please bring your feast gear and a chair for the day (you will want a chair for baronial court). Even if the weather gods do not smile on us, we will still be able to hold our activities, so don’t let the weather stop you from enjoying this event with us!

Event Fees

Site Fee: Because we are not providing a dayboard, our fees are reduced: $5 for adult members (adult non-members must pay $10), $2 for children and youth 5-17, no charge for those under 5. No reservations required or accepted.
