Defenders of Sherwood

The Shire of Misty Highlands once again challenges all to join us for battle and competition in the forests of Sherwood. Robin is launching his assault in the spring this year, hoping to catch the Sheriff's men off guard.

Daytime activities will include archery, thrown weapons, fencing, an A&S exhibit & classes, heavy fighting (in the woods and on the field), a Gage Tourney, youth fighting and scouting. We will also be hosting the first Queen's Combat Archery Championship. The evenings will see bardic activities, mid-eastern drumming, and of course our traditional coffee bar, "Holy Grounds" will be open, with games to challenge the intellect.
