Our fair barony is seeking a few skilled individuals to carry the mantle of champions for the coming year. All gentles with skill and determination in the art of stick, sword, bow and A & S are encouraged to join us for an incredible weekend of heavy and light fighting, archery and Arts and Sciences.
This year Warders has moved to a new site – Wines of the San Juan. This is a beautiful site snuggled in the San Juan River valley. For those interested in trying some of New Mexico’s best wine you are welcome to purchase wine by the glass or the bottle! If you would like to check their wine selection you can do so www.winesofthesanjuan.com. Pets are welcome, but must be on a leash at all times. There is a large ditch and the San Juan River near by, please keep an eye on your children at all times.
Heavy fighters can again look forward to the Rok Tourney! The Rok will be hidden somewhere – the challenge is finding it, fighting the Unkillable Entities, eluding the other teams and crossing into the safe zone – good fun -- good luck!
In addition, there are several A&S classes planned and perhaps a heraldry class or two, and children’s classes too! Please watch the Outlands list and this website for further updates on a special wine tasting, A&S competition guidelines and class topics and schedules.
