Barbarian Bash XI

description:
On a stormy night, oars slap the water, sails stretch tight catching the night wind. On the shore a sleeping village awaits its deadly fate. Long boats slide ever closer. Soon the cries will echo across the land as night turns to day. Smoke clears, longboats sail away heavy in the water, as the Vikings leave with the spoils of the day.

Crystal crags is honored to offer our longest running event, Barbarian Bash XI. Location:
Kalispell Montana

Who's Afraid Beowulf 4: Hrafnafjordr Gone Wild!

description:
It started as an idea and has grown into a legend. Alas, all good things come to an end. That's right, Oertha has a new prince and princess and as the summer wanes, it's time for "Who's Afraid of Beowulf 4!"

This will be the last installment of our saga. The great Hrafnafjordr Axe of Might has long carried the spirit of The Beast Grendel within it and has corrupted the shire's Champion. Now the call goes out to find a new hero, one who can defeat the old champion, now turned wicked, and lay waste to the spirit of Grendel himself, freeing the Shire from evil, once and for all....In addition to the championship tourney there will be contests aplenty to celebrate the Viking spirit in all of us including miniature Viking boat building (extra points for authenticity and if it is able to float and hold a small amount of weight), Viking booty call (fashion show) and a good old fashioned beserker contest.  As the evening winds down, come over Byfrost to Valhalla, where we will feast with those who died in honorable combat against the monster that day. Bring your own spirits and a good voice to the Bardic fire. This is the LAST BEOWULF!! Be there or be...uh... square! Lord Gunnar's duties call him elsewhere and he has passed the torch on to other shire folk. Location:
Shire of Hrafnafjordr (Soldotna, Alaska)

It's time once again to choose among the battle hardened fighters to see who the fiercest, strongest, and most honorable of them may be. As Lord Conrad MacCallum wearily steps down from his appointed place, he searches for a worthy replacement. Who will it be? Will it be the savvy and deadly Sir Yngvar, Earl Aethelmearc or the good natured Olafr Thorvardarson? Perhaps our young Ulfar of the Sword will rise to the challenge. Above all, a strong protector of the baron must be found! Fighters are encouraged to bring an SCA list legal dagger. Join us for what looks like an extremely entertaining tournament. Location:
