On May 4-6, 2007 The Iron Weasel and Wire Weasel will come back for another year. This year they are joined by their little brother, the Weasel Pup!
Ever wonder what the SCA would do with the Ironman Triathalon? Well this is your answer.
The various Weasel events are 3 part competitions to find the best all around warrior in Heavy Armored Combat (Iron Weasel), Rapier Combat (Wire Weasel), or Youth Boffer (Weasel Pup). Each competitor will compete in a fighting tournament, archery competition and dance competition, ALL in full gear!
This year the competitions will be hosted by the Rasputin Brothers Tavern, a quiet and unassuming establishment near the Aethelmearc border.
For those that are not interested in fighting, we will also have an A&S competition with the theme of "Best Weasel in any Media". Because of a recent bandit raid, the Rasputin Brothers find themselves in need of a new house brewer. Anyone interested in the position should bring samples of their best for the brewing competition (it is IKBG sancted! See A&S page for more). The bandits also destroyed the tavern's sign, so the Rasputins also are holding a competition for the best period tavern sign for their tavern.
On the day of the event, we will be choosing a Gallery of Ladies for all three Weasel competitions for judging the entrants in the various categories.
Come and join us at the Geauga County Fair Grounds in Burton OH on May 4-6, 2007 and meet the famed Weasels of Eastwatch!
There will be dancing, archery and pick-up fighting all day, youth activities, A&S competition, a wonderful feast and the day will close with charity torchlight tourneys followed by a bardic circle and bon fire. There will be plenty of fun for everyone. This is a wet site and pets are welcome, as long as they are leashed and you clean up after them.
Camping is available at $10 per tent for both Friday and Saturday nights. Bathrooms and showers are available.
For those unfamiliar with the SCA, we are a recreation society specializing in 500-1600 CE. We ask that everyone attending make an attempt at appropriate clothing for that time period; and we will have some loaner garb on site.
