Axes and Arrows

Saturday, October 2, 2021 - 10:00 to 21:00

Come join Gryphon’s Lair as we host a day of Axes and Arrows in beautiful Morgan Canyon. Escape the city and relax on the banks of the Weber River while trying your skill at archery, thrown weapons, heavy, and rapier fighting.

Their Excellencies demand new champions for archery and thrown weapons and urge all members of the Lair to sharpen their axes and string their bows and compete for glory!
Prize tournaments will be held for Armored and Rapier combatants. In honor of the event theme, combatants will wield an axe or an arrow quiver during the tournaments.
A BGL snack bar will be available throughout the day with manufacturer sealed snacks and beverages available. Come support your Barony and enjoy some sweet treats.
The BGL Needleworkers Guild will be hosting an embroidery salon. Bring your current project or your questions and let’s sit and stitch.
