Moose Olympics

Come one, come all to the Moose Olympics! The populace of the Barony of Highland Foorde will be hosting the first ever Moose Olympics and invites all of you to attend.

This promises to be a great day of fun. There will be heavy fighting, fencing, combat and target archery. For those of you are not martially minded there will be an A&S competition and display, riddles, indoor table top games (chess, backgammon, nine man morris, claukhaus and others) and outdoor lawn games (badminton, bocce ball and crochet). For the first time we will be having a wheel barrow sewing competition (based upon the skill of hand sewing on the way to an event on a very bumpy road). We will also be sinking to new level of degradation by hosting full armor Kambok. Other games may be added as available. Moose Olympic Medallions will be awarded for the gold, silver and bronze winners of the day.

Arts and Sciences: We will be judging for an A&S champion. All entries in all mediums are welcome. Show off your finest works (finished or in progress). Documentation is encouraged.

Feast: A wonderful feast will be prepared by our own Lady Adrianna di Salaparuta. Please contact us with any dietary concerns, requests or allergies. The feast will be limited to 80. Candles are welcome.

Merchants are welcome. Indoor space is limited but there is plenty of outdoor space available. Please contact the autocrat with any questions.
