It's a brisk autumn day. The harvests have been plentiful. As you walk along the winding country road you hear laughter and merriment and see a warm, welcoming light coming from an Inn. You approach the Inn to hear a celebration in progress. The Inn-Keeper leans out the door and beckons you to join the fun.
Come celebrate with us and enjoy a day of Archery and Heavy Weapons activities. (Weather, and Marshalls permitting) And a harvest-time, tavern-style feast.
