The Saga of Egill and Gellir
There were two men, Egill and Gellir, who were brothers. They worked for their father Ulfr Strakesplitter building boats. One day they came to their father and asked to build a boat so they could assemble a warband and go a-viking. Ulfr loved his sons and was proud of them, but he also knew they were young and impetuous. So he told his sons that he would help them build their boat, provided they could demonstrate the skills necessary to survive in the wide world. He then arranged a series of contests by which his sons could be tested and prove themselves capable.
The fourth weekend in July in the shire of Stonegate these contests will be held. The event will begin Friday July 22 at 2pm and end Sunday July 24 at 2pm, and will be held at Third Creek Group Campground near Malad Idaho. The cost is $12 per adult member or $17 per adult non-member. Attendance will be limited to pre-registered individuals only. Although we believe there is plenty of room for all, we do encourage individuals to carpool where possible to help reduce parking demand, and also ask that campers keep their camp footprints reasonable.

Pre-registration is possible through S.C.A.R.S., using credit, debit cards, or PayPal, at www.sca.org . NO PAYMENT WILL BE ACCEPTED ON SITE
