[MID] Melee at Roswell 2009

Pennsic may be over, but there is still plenty of summer fun left! Join us for this weekend of camping at a beautiful site just northeast of New Philadelphia, Ohio. Melee at Roswell has classes, merchants, archery, rapier and armoured combat, thrown weapons, and our famous “potluck picnic” on Saturday night.

Enjoy the archery Woods Walk or armor up for the Woods Quest Battle. The Melee Market Place & Bazaar features merchants as well as special hours on Saturday August 22 for you to sell, barter, or trade your own goods.

When not shopping, shooting, fighting, or attending class, you can relax and share Turkish coffee and bardic performances (yours and others') at the Magic Carpet Kavehane, hosted by the Gorsedd bardic community.
