[WES] Beaconsgate Boar Hunt and Feast

description:
The holidays are coming, and so is the Annual Beaconsgate Boar Hunt. We will be at our traditional site, Camp Herms. In addition to the Hunt during the day, we will have many activities within the hall (dancing, singing, music, games) for non-fighters and tired fighters. Please plan to bring something for your lunch if you are coming on site early.

For those of you who may not know, a Boar Hunt is a fighting activity, with fighters armed with two maces playing the part of the Boar. Hunters are armed with spears, and hounds with daggers. There are also unarmored dogs, who seek out the boars and bark when they are discovered -- this can be a great role for a mature child accompanied by a responsible adult. If there is enough interest (and a qualified volunteer marshal), we may add a hunt for rapier fighters. Location:

Kingdom Twelfth Night and Yule are over and now you can put all seriousness aside and join us for the silliness of a court held by the King of Fools and the wonders of a "backward feast". Foolishness you say? But of course!

Welcome to Fool's Twelfth Night. Fun and Merriment abound at our festivities. Enter into a realm where the garb is motley (sometimes painfully so), the games and gambling are for fun and prizes, the most foolish soul sits on the throne and dessert, of course is served first (life being short and uncertain) All those attending will vote for the silliest among our ranks. This lucky Fool then reigns as King or Queen of Fools, silly hat and all. There will be a Gluckhaus game running throughout the day. Whoever ends the day with the most baubles (whether hard earned, conned, or begged) will be declared the winner. Other contests and games of fun and merriment include the most foolish hat contest, best use of motley, best foolish subtlety Location:
