Hail Archers

Hail Archers of Endewearde!

There will be an unscheduled archery practice at our normal range on Sunday, 6/10/18, from 12 to 2 PM.

Master Godric  and our Archery Company Captain, Lady Admiranda will not be there but have authorized me to run the practice. Unlike this past Tuesday, we’re expecting fantastic weather. Let’s make the best of it and ready ourselves for this summer’s battles! Huzzah!

Endewearde Hunt

The schedules should be removed, and Audrye’s contact information should be added as deputy autocrat: Audrye Beneyt mka Danielle Hunt, (207) 631-9706 email: audrye.beneyt@gmail.com

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.

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.

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.

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

Baronial Arts and Sciences Championship at Jehan’s

A Letter from Mistress Agatha Regarding Baronial Arts and Sciences Championship at Jehans 2018

Endewearde and Friends,

First, let me thank all who have submitted their intent to compete in our A&S Championship at Jehan’s. The Barony is blessed to be home to so many fine artisans.

In addition to our championship, there is to be a populace vote competition and display space available. Works entered into the display or entered into the championship are both eligible for the populace vote competition. This competition is separate from the championship and is open to all attending the event. You may also display without competing.

Artisans who are competing but not attending should plan on providing documentation for their work, explaining at the very least their inspiration, process, and methods and materials. We obviously cannot interview artisans who cannot attend, but documentation will help us to understand your process.

There will be someone in the display area at all times to watch over all of the entries.

The form for this is linked below and there will also be copies available on site.

For Judges

Hello, Endewearde! I’d like to thank those folks who have stepped forward as judges for our second Arts and Sciences Championship.

Here’s how judging will work: We will have a panel of judges who will meet with artisans face-to-face to discuss their entries. This is a chance for artisans to really show off what they know! The judging time frame will be from 12:15-2:00. During this time the display and competition areas will be closed to the populace to allow for interviews. Each artisan will have an assigned time to be at their table for their interview, which will be approximately 15 minutes.

During court that afternoon, Their Excellencies will announce their newest Arts and Sciences Champion!

We encourage you to bring your own food, as there will be no day board. 

Additional Information

If you have a banner, flag or shield that you would like to display on the fences that surround the Fort green PLEASE do it!! Having such things really do help the ambience.

Thanks to Lord Eoin an Doire we will have Gold Key clothing at Gate! For those of you with newcomers please feel free to take what you need, although I would suggest that you bring your own belts!

Frouva Hrefna of Wyndriche will be running a paper form gate rather than the electronic system we have been using. For the best Trolling experience please have your Blue membership card ready, and to steal a phrase; correct change is always awesome!

For fencing and all kinds of such fun, Lord Radbod will be your MIC and general shenanigan creator. For Rattan your MIC will be Lord Gryffyd Abernathy and our own Baron Ane du Vey. For Youth Combat Activities Lord Thomas de Marr will be Head Velociraptor hearder.

Meisterin Agatha Wanderer will be your contact point for the Baronial A+S Championships, with Lady Olalla Tristana will be looking after those who are entering the Populace Choice display. Visit the page dedicated to this championship and A&S populace choice display for more information.

As we are a bloodthirsty bunch, we are also honoured to have the Guild of Chirurgeons present! Lady Admiranda Howard and Lord Radbod will be present to apply Band Aids!

During the day we will have an open fire in the Tavern, Lord Ragnar and his Lady have volunteered to manage the area. If you wish, we are accepting donations of LOCAL sourced firewood, one or two chunks would make the supply for the day stretch longer.

We have no dayboard, so please plan accordingly. Water will be available in the rest room for drinking and we will have orange coolers inside the Fort.

Parking will be in the site parking lot.

A quick glance at the weather forecast shows mid fifties and a chance of rain showers. As the Fort tends to be cool the autocrat would recommend layers and an extra blanket!

Youths 17 and under enter free!!
