On the northern border of the Barony of Gryphon's Lair lies a vast marsh land that some would argue belongs to the bordering Shire (why anyone would want to claim a marsh nobody knows, but that is not the point). Several years ago the lands were disputed and from this the Midge Marsh Melee was created. The Barony, for some reason, wants to keep hold of the marshlands and to honor this, and their first birthday, we invite all to come to this grand event and enjoy. You will find many fun and entertaining things to keep you occupied throughout the day (so you don't smell the marshes or notice the flies). Location:
Barony of Gryphon's Lair (Ogden, Utah)

As we return to our homes after a long summer campaign, the sounds of war fade and the sounds of merriment grow. Laughter replaces the battle cry as the populace of Atlantia gathers to celebrate the glories of Pennsic in an atmosphere of frivolity and fun.
The glorious Barony of Storvik invites you to an evening of enjoyment at its traditional Post Pennsic Dessert Revel. This year's theme is "Fun and Games," so come out and play some games! You may already know that cribbage and chess are period, but have you ever played Nine Men's Morris (featured in the most recent Tournaments Illuminated), Fox and Geese, or Hazard? Bring your cards, dice, board games, and toys. Weather permitting, you can try outdoor ball-and-stick games in the small, woodsy glen (no martial activities). Veteran game players are encouraged to teach the rules and strategies to new contestants of all ages.
