The time has come to meet again at the ancient and honorable event,
Loch Salann Melee Madness! Plan to join us at the Castle for a gentle
passage of arms! This event will occur June 6th, 2020, at it’s equally unique,
incredibly ancient and honorable site at the castle in back of the Utah State
Hospital in Provo, Utah. Fighting, archery, thrown weapons, relaxing in
the sun - what more could you want? Come on out! Enjoy the day! Opening
announcements are tentatively planned for 10:00 am on Saturday (or
whenever the event steward thinks enough fighters have shown up). The
more fighters we have, the more fun the castle siege scenarios will be!
While all this is going on, the competitions for Baronial archery and
thrown weapons champions will also be taking place. So, prepare your
gear, polish your weapons and armor, and rally to meet the melee challenge!
Please note, the annual pas d’armes, hosted by House Catwing & Hold
Tyte, is moved to Baron’s War to encourage more participants and gallery
members to join the fun! Stay tuned as we will publish more details soon!
If you ever wanted to run/sponsor and activity or contest, or teach a
class (fighting or non-fighting), this is the place to do it; just clear it with
the event steward and appropriate coordinator.
The site will officially OPEN by 8:00 am and CLOSE at 10:00 pm on
Saturday. We will be allowed to set up tents Friday night after 5:30 pm.
As this is now a one-day event only, there will be no camping permitted.
Participants are encouraged to come early on Saturday and bring picnic
lunches and sunshades or tents (although there are numerous shade trees).
Also please note that there is HANDICAP ONLY parking at the castle
amphitheater area. You may unload in that area only, then quickly move
your vehicle either above to the parking area at the top or below by the
