Our Shire is in need of a Defender; a swordsman willing to face the best of the rapier community. A swordsman willing to live and die in defense of the Lost Souls.
Long has the mountain pass between our Kingdom and Artemisia been guarded against any who might encroach on our fair lands. Once again a heavy warrior will be chosen to defend the Silver Pass against all foes.
On July 23rd, AS XLVI Shire Rio de las Animas calls all heavy and light fighters to fair Riverhold to show your courage, prowess and skills on the field as we determine the Defender of the Shire of Lost Souls, as well as the Defender of the Silver Pass.
For those not competing in the tourneys there will be an archery shoot for those skilled with the bow. An arts and science siege for the crafty types, as well as Children’s activities for the smalls in attendance. There is even talk of a horse race.
The event will be held at 72 River Road, Durango Colorado (directions below).
Site Fees: Adults and Teens: $10, Children 6-12: $5, 5 and under Free. Non-members are required to pay a non-member surcharge of $5. Checks payable to SCA-Shire of Rio de Las Animas.
