The Barony of Stromgard and the Village of Bjorgvin would like the invite you all to A Grand Thing. This will be a period event, focusing on Norse and Irish traditions of the Viking Era, with fighting, contests, games, and a grand feast! There will be a multi-weapons tournament, A Viking raiders tournament of ships, and a monastery raid where you get to keep all the booty you can escape with.

There will be contests in axe and spear throwing, archery, wrestling, and more.
