War of the Wings

This October 20-22 the Barony of the Sacred Stone will be hosting the War of the Wings against the Barony of Windmasters Hill. It will be held at Elchenburg Castle in the beautiful hills of Elkin, North Carolina. Come witness and participate in the glorious battles. Enjoy tales, songs, dancing and good company. There will be castle battles, woods battles, grand melees and torchlight tournaments for both heavy and rapier.

Target archery, thrown weapons, cavalry, youth combat - all will earn points to decide the outcome of the war. A&S will include challenges for 4 War Points with 15 different competition categories including Live Performance, Period Encampments and many more.

This is a wet site and pet friendly. It is camping only but with a bathhouse (hot water, clean showers, and flushing toilets). We will have single, modern, and period camping. In addition, we will have an extensive area set aside for group encampments. Merchants are more than welcome, they are encouraged and cajoled. More details and reservation forms can be found on our website.

The cost for all this excitement? Only $10 per adult, and $5 for children 5 to 17 years of age -- provided you register before September 3rd, 2006!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the autocrats; Asszony Bessenyei Rozsa (Rachel Wojcik) at qchell@earthlink.net and Lord Alain ap Daffyd (Berry Williams) at berryjw@yahoo.com. Or you can visit our website at www.warofthewings.com and there is also an e-group where you can sign up to hear about any announcements and updates to the website. The website is still in its early stages but will be updated frequently and there you will also be able to read the ongoing legend behind the war, a series of stories with a new story added every month leading up to the war.
