[ART] Raptor War

Please join us for the holiday weekend for a great mix of competition, mountain calm, and partying!   Once again, we return to Blackwell’s Meadow north of Glenns Ferry, Idaho.

The site is wet, fires are allowed, and pets are welcome, featuring a dumpster on site, porta privies, and two water buffaloes (NEW THIS YEAR!). A large, thin grove of mature quaking aspens provides ambiance and partial shade throughout the camping area.

For the heavy fighters, there will be melees, tourneys (including a snowball), and of course a WAR! There will also be several competitions including: Kingdom and Baronial Baronial Archery Championships Kingdom and Baronial Thrown Weapons Championships Baronial Rapier Championship (the Musketeer) and Raptor  Rapier Rogue Baronial Equestrian Championship as well as a Jousting Tourney Other activities will include hounds coursing on Friday and Sunday, children's castle building, and catapults & TREBUCHETS (plan ahead and make one)!

We have had very few fire restrictions over the years in this green meadow, and plan to have fireside bardics both Thursday and Friday, and a hafla on Saturday with a real bonfire.

The Weary Traveler’s Tavern will be serving hot soup/stew, bread, and entertainment Friday night.   

Due to the 4th of July holiday on Wednesday, we are opening the event a day earlier on THURSDAY at 4:00 pm, and closing at 5:00 pm on Sunday.
