Harvest time is upon us in the beautiful (and windy!) northwest of Atenveldt, and we are all busy gathering in our grains and fruits before the cold winds of winter come. Four local Lords are feuding over the right to harvest one particular field for its rich crop of grain.
As these Lords are unable to decide who has the legal right to harvest the field, they've decided to settle this the proper way. Each will send in his finest harvesters, each to gather whatever he or she can. Behind closed doors, these four Lords are all conscripting not farmers, but Warriors, whom they shall send into the fields not to harvest heads of wheat, but heads of their rivals' conscripts! The call goes out to the far reaches of the Kingdom for brave and hearty fighters to don their armor, pick up their harvesting tools, and fight for the rights to this rich parcel of land.
We of the Shire of Windale cordially invite all to join us for our Feast of Knowledge/Heroes of the Harvest event. We have planned a wonderful day of teaching, learning, fighting and of course Feasting for your enjoyment!

This site is improved with stone privies, some nice shade trees, water and plenty of grass! Site is WET, no pets, smoking allowed. This is a non-camping event, so no fires.
Merchants are encouraged, and there is NO MERCHANT FEE other than the site fee!
We are also trying to organize a Silent Auction for this event. Proceeds from this auction will go toward the purchase of a dining pavilion for our Shire since our old dining tents were damaged by the high winds at Estrella War this year. You'd think we'd be prepared for winds, wouldn't you? If you wish to contribute items for our silent auction, please contact the event steward.
