Yes it’s that time of year again! The Barony March of Mons Tonitrus is hosting its annual Barmaids event at the Lower Garden Canyon site on Ft. Huachuca. Trees, shade, babbling brooks (maybe) and competitions with prizes are available for all!
Saturday morning will see Opening Court at 9:00 followed by armor inspection. Prizes will be contested in both Armored and Rapier scenarios "in the tavern" as well as weird weapons (Rapier and Armored) and of course The Barmaid competition! Following the conclusion of the tavern tourneys we will begin the "Boar Hunt" in the forest for those armored fighters who just can’t get enough stick time. Saturday late afternoon will also see a Siege Engine accuracy demonstration. Come fire a bolt high into the sky for a small donation to the American Cancer Society.
Saturday evening a feast of Stone Soup (both with and without meat) and sideboard will be held so bring something to throw in the soup pot. Breads will be provided as well. 'Ducats' will be provided to each attendee at troll. During Saturday evening feast, use your Ducats to tip your favorite Bar Maid. The Bar Maid with the most tips (Ducats) will win one round of the traditional “Best Barmaid” completion. Following the feast, we will hold the remaining rounds of the signature “Best Barmaid” competition. Throughout the feast and in between “Best Barmaid” rounds will be bardic entertainment, so please bring your instruments, tales, and singing voices to share with all.
A gaming tent with all period games will be run by Rogue Haven as one way to win (or lose) ducats.
Sunday morning the archers will let loose and our Youth Combatants will compete for their own prize. So there is truly something for everyone at this event.
Merchants are also welcome on site.
