Thursday, August 16, 2018 (All day) to Sunday, August 19, 2018 (All day)

Travel to the Northern Realms for the last celebration of
summer camping season! Join the Barony of Sentinels’ Keep
and the Shire of Stan Wyrm at Williamson Park in Shelby
Montana and celebrate in jubilant Northern style as Hordes from Avacal
cross the border once again to celebrate our friendship.

The Autocrat team is planning activities for 2 full days of merriment
and contests! There will be Armored battles, on the middle field, and into
the woods! Rapier will also have battle scenes and tournaments to
determine who is the best. For the Arts & Sciences minded persons, we
are planning to have classes, and a Baroness’ Tea to display your projects.
Archery is a mainstay at this event, and there will be animal targets, Royal
Rounds, and possibly a competition. There will be organized children
activities, and hopefully a practice of Youth Combat!
