AUGUST 23 - 25, 2019

Pre-registration is OPEN! This is not a pre-pay nor is it a land allocation or reservation for the Baronial Burger Burn. It is simply to help the event Stewards prepare for how many will be attending.
We welcome one and all to join us at Raptor War! Celebrations abound in the Barony of Arn Hold. Alongside our mighty snakelike river will be a wonderful weekend of new and old. Come help us thank their most wonderful Excellencies Gomez and Merin as they take a well-earned rest from the duties of herding moose. Welcome our new Baroness, HE Varia! Come help her step forward into this role with laughter and light! Come honor our friends and offer your words as 2 of our number step forward to be recognized as the Peers they are!
The days will be filled with activities for all interested travelers and the nights with revelry! We will have 4 different Baronial Championships to challenge your skills (Archery, Thrown Weapons, Rapier and Armored Combat). ALL are welcome to participate, Champions will be the highest ranking member of the Barony in each contest. Come put our Populace to the test!
A Note about Archery: Due to State Park rules (that just got noticed by someone), we have moved Archery offsite. We have a permit to hold it about ¼ mile up the road from the site on Wildlife Management land. There is parking so those that don’t want to walk can drive up to the Tournament please plan accordingly.

The Tournament Du Armand will take place again this year. Come honor our beloved Baron Armand in the tournament held in his memory.
There are rumors of assassins venturing forth to play their game (ie., The Assassin’s Tourney will be happening) along with 2 classes and a small collection of activities aimed at our young and young at heart.
Feel free to travel light with victuals, as Saturday the 24th, a sale of beef in the Hamburg(er) style for $5 (tax included) will raise funds for the keeping of our Moose Herds. Cap for burgers is 125, hot dogs is 40. Please buy your tickets at the gate.

Site: Niagara Springs State Park, 2131 Niagara Springs Road, Wendell, Idaho. Site opens at 2 pm on Friday, August 23th, and everyone needs to be off site by noon on Sunday, August 25th. Individuals staying after noon on the 25th may be charged extra fees by the Park. The site is Wet. There is onsite water (flushing toilets!) and some shade. Pets are allowed as long as they are on a leash. This is a pack in pack out site!!! There is wildlife in the area.

In an effort to keep the event costs to a bare minimum, we have elected to have attendees pay the Park fees at the entrance directly to the State of Idaho Parks and Recreation as they arrive. While this is atypical for an SCA event, we are doing this to allow our friends to keep their expenses to minimum if they so desire.
