[ATL] Lochmere 20th Baronial Birthday and Investiture

Twenty years ago, on the fields of Pennsic XVII, the shires of Myrkwood and Airendale were formally united into the Barony of Lochmere by their august Atlantian Majesties, Dafydd and Elizabeth. In celebration of that glorious day, we invite you to attend our baronial birthday where the Eighth Baron and Baroness will be invested and take on the responsibilities of leadership.

The weekend's activities will have something for just about everyone. For the fighters, heavy and rapier, there will be a Bedford Points Tourney, where the weapons form will be chosen at the beginning of each round. Archery and Arts and Science activities will round out the day?s competitive events. For those inclined towards less strenuous activities, there will be a trivia quiz covering the history of Lochmere, various A&S displays, and of course performances by Lochmere's music groups. Please refer to the information below for fees, directions, and contact information.
