[DRA] Double Wars XXIV

The Shire of Attemark would once again like to welcome all gentles throughout the Known World to the Double Wars.

As we have done so many times before we will meet upon the field of honor to do battle. It is again time to decide on which side we shall butter our knäckebröd for the coming year.

There will be classes covering many of the different subjects of our fair society. There will be revelry and tournaments as we look forward to days of battle for the joy of combat and days of peace for the pleasure of our senses as well as the joy of skills in the arts and sciences. We invite all merchants of the realm to participate at the market.

Maximum ten minutes by car from the eventsite.
    * Skeinge stronghold – A couple of miles north of the site there is a unique eight-squared stronghold, the only one in Scandinavia. Rubber boots are preferable. Approximately 42 kilometers from the eventsite.
    * Gumlösa Church – The oldest building made of brick in the Nordic countries. It’s a church from the 12th century. Approximately 28km from the eventsite.
    * Sinclair Estate – A free guided tour will be held at the 17th century estate of Sinclair at Sinclairsholm 15:00. The estate is not far from Gumlösa Church (see above).

At the eventsite, there will be plenty of opportunities to take a walk in the beautiful surroundings. This year you can also borrow canoes for a tour in the lake of Finjasjön next to the site. Life jackets are required and are to be found with the canoes. For information - talk to troll.
