[MER] Japanese Games

Oengus-Danshaku and Muirenn-Danshaku-fujin invite you to join the Barony of Bryn Madoc for Japanese-style fighting, games & activities, a poetry contest, and a tea ceremony.

Don your best kimono, and pack your armor, fans, parasols, taiko, and tea sets, and follow the Danelaw Vikings on the trade winds to Medieval Japan. A&S activities will include classes on kumihimo (Japanese braiding), temari (embroidered thread balls), silk painting, origami (paper folding), Go (a classic board game), and more. Fighting will include cut-and-thrust activities and plenty of Japanese-flavored heavy combat and meleés. Details.

The site for Danelaw is Hard Labor Creek State Park* in Rutledge, Georgia. Please note: We are using the small group camp, Daniel Morgan, instead of the large group camp. Camp Daniel Morgan has 76 beds in cabins; tent camping is not available on site (but is available elsewhere in the park). A few cottages are also available for rent through the park. For more information on tenting and cottages, call 1-800-864-7275 or go to the Georgia State Parks system's website.*

The event site opens at 5 p.m. Eastern time on Friday and closes at 11 a.m. on Sunday. No pets allowed in the group camp area. Georgia State Parks' policy states that “consumption or use of alcoholic beverages or intoxicants is unlawful in any public-use area.”

Directions: From I-20, take the Newborn Rd. exit (exit no. 105) into Rutledge and take Fairplay Road to the park. The entrance to Camp Daniel Morgan is on the right at the intersection with Knox Chapel Rd., before you get to the stone bridge.
