10th Annual Siege of Glengary

Come celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Siege of Glengary with us at the Camp Frame 4-H Camp.

10th Annual Siege of Glengary
Shire of Sylvan Glen (Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia)
Co-sponsored by the Barony of Highland Foorde (Atlantia)
Camp Frame 4-H
Sept. 30-Oct. 2, 2005

Highland Foorde is a vibrant and growing barony of northern Atlantia. Our population growth has afforded us many opportunities but has also presented us with many challenges in providing for the needs of our people. The colony we have established in our western region is beginning to show great promise. The continued development of this area is vital to the stability of our barony.

The Kingdom of Aethelmearc, however, surrounds this colony, on three sides, and it is connected to us by only one road running through a narrow, mountainous passage. The citizens of Aethelmearc's borderlands are still suspicious of our intentions, fearful even of invasion, and may be conspiring to barricade the Western Road. Protecting the development of this region is crucial. We cannot allow this barricade to be erected, and so we urgently call upon our friends and allies to come to our aid in defending our barony. We will march on Glengary in the Shire of Sylvan Glen where we believe weapons and supplies are being stockpiled in preparation for the siege of the Western Road. Join us Sept 30 - Oct. 2, 2005 in defense of our Barony.

Come celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Siege of Glengary with us at the Camp Frame 4-H Camp. This site features a 350-seat feast hall, lots of room for classes, an indoor fencing arena, and 200+ bed Viking longhouses (dormitory style cabins). Dormitory space will be allotted on a first come first serve basis. Tent camping is also permitted. The site is located on Camp Frame Rd (no street number), Hedgesville, WV. The site will open on Friday, Sept. 30 at 6:30 pm and close on Sunday, Oct. 2 at 4 pm. No early birds please as this may endanger our ability to rent this camp again. This site is wet, and dogs are allowed. Most of the camp is handicap accessible.

Join us as we mark this momentous occasion with a full day of martial activities including heavy combat, youth combat, archery, thrown weapons, and fencing. The Youth Combat fighters will also be sponsoring a Toys for Tots Tourney. Contact our Youth Marshall, Laird Wulfric Grimbeald (Wulf Johnson) at lairdwulf@aol.com for more details. The gentler arts will feature an A&S competition with the theme ?Castles: Forts of Fancy?. Entries may be in any media such as but not limited to textiles, woodwork, even food for the clever culinary craftsman as long as it features castles in some form. Children are encouraged to enter.

The brewing competition returns this year with the theme being "Apples." This includes but is not limited to apples as a fermentable, flavoring, color, garnish, label decoration, name, bottle shape, palate cleanser, or any other way you can think of to sneak an apple into your entry. Be creative! Try an orchard on the label, or an apple platter for presentation. We will also entertain the populace with a bardic competition. There will be classes and a feast at the end of the day. Merchants are welcomed. Please contact the autocrat with your space requirements. Please visit us here for more details:
