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

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.
