[ATL] Midwinter's Tale

As the cold grips the land of Their Majesties, Jason and Gerhild, the Shire of Border Vale Keep offers warmth and grand company at Midwinter's Tale - A Norse Journey! Traditionally we have held this event as a day trip, but this year extend our welcome for the whole weekend. In honor of Their Majesties we will have Norse themed martial activities and encourage Norse themed A&S items. Please don't forget the heart of Midwinter's Tale and bring your sagas to relive!

Please join us from January 16-18, 2009
