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.

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.”
GUEST MINORS REQUIRED PAPERWORK
If you are planning to bring a Youth Minor (anyone under the age of 18) to a Society for Creative Anachronism event for whom you are not their parent or legal guardian, then you must obtain the proper forms and signatures. This policy applies to relatives of the guest minor as well (for example: siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins).
You can read Endewearde’s FAQ for Guest Minors so you can plan to obtain the necessary forms, signatures and notary public services before the youth guest minor accompanies you to an event.
