Battle in the Bar! Revel in the Roadhouse! Barmaids is here! Yes it’s that time of year again! The Barony March of Mons Tonitrus is hosting its annual Barmaids event at the Lower Garden Canyon site on Ft. Huachuca. Trees, shade, babbling brooks (maybe) and competitions with prizes are available for all! Click here for a small collection of site photos.
Saturday morning will see Opening Court at 9:00 followed by armor inspection. Prizes will be contested in both Armored and Rapier scenarios "in the tavern" as well as weird weapons (Rapier and Armored) and of course The Barmaid competition! Following the conclusion of the tavern tourneys we will begin the "Boar Hunt" in the forest for those armored fighters who just can’t get enough stick time. Saturday late afternoon will also see a Siege Engine accuracy competition. As the sun sets we’re expecting the Siege Engineers to continue with a "fire in the sky" display. (Of course no 'real' fire will be allowed for this show.) 'Ducats' will be provided to each attendee at troll. A gaming tent with all period games will be run by RogueHaven as one way to win (or lose) ducats. Other opportunities to earn them will also be available. Both the adult and youth who collect the most ducats during the event will be awarded prizes at closing court on Sunday.

The drums of War can be heard coming from the mountains as a gentle wind blows across the valley of Windale! OK so there will be drums and lots of wind of course, but not war, like some might think. We will have many of the war-like games you have all grown to love. Hobby horse jousting, crazy hard suit tourney, scavenger hunting and of course tossing of some poor object. There will be a silent auction with many of our local artisans showing their talents. Location:
Shire of Windale (Kingman Arizona)
