[EAS] Les Baltanes

Come celebrate with us the coming of summer at the Baltanes Festivities, which will be held on June 10-11-12, in the lands of the Barony of Havre des Glaces on the Island of Bacchus (Ile d'Orleans).

On this XXIVth edition of this marvelous event, there will be fighting, archery, fencing, thrown weapons, fun and more, all on the enchanting camping site that you all know.

During the event, there shall be a Baronial Championship for each of the following combat activities: Heavy Fighting, Archery and Thrown Weapons.

There will also be an Arts & Sciences Schola, where teachers from both our Barony and neighbouring lands will share their knowledge with all. If you are interested in teaching a class, please contact the autocrats who will put you in contact with the A&S Schola coordinator.

A small day board will be offered for free Saturday at lunch time. This year, there is no feast planned for  Saturday evening.
