The forests of Endewearde are vast and with Autumn upon us, 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 Champion is sought through displays of prowess. Under the pines, people gather to learn a variety of 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 and competition, a vast A&S track, and more! There is some rumor of a bit of fencing, as well!
This year will also feature the Third Annual Malaweardian 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.

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.

In addition to fire buckets Foresters are providing the following at the Hunt:

for handling & moving ashes, coals and charred wood. Please dispose
of your fireplace residue only in the fire pit on Bards’ Hill. Do not
dump it on the ground.
● Several plastic tarps
● Extra tent pegs & stakes
● Twine & rope
● Assorted wooden poles
These will be placed near the troll / info point. Please feel free to borrow what you need and return it at the end of the event.
