Melee Madness 2020!!

Saturday, June 6, 2020 - 08:00 to 22:00

“NOTICE: This is event is subject to being canceled if, at the time the event is to be held, modern civil authorities have issued restrictive orders related to public gatherings pursuant to their COVID-19 mitigation efforts.”

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 6 th , 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 hospital. All non-handicap vehicles
must be parked elsewhere or will be towed!

This is a very dry site! Because this is a state facility, anyone bringing alcoholic beverages onsite or found to be in an
inebriated condition must be politely asked to leave immediately! Off-site merchants are only 4-6 minutes away, and while above
ground fires or open flames are not permitted, off-ground fire pits, hibachis, and gas grills are. Pets are welcome if accompanied
by responsible owners.

Please note the Utah Valley Marathon will be held on the same day! There will be road closures. Please watch for additional
