Greetings good gentles! Spring is fast approaching and the
Barony of Sentinels’ Keep invites you to join us in a
celebration of the season! Spring Feast will be held March
23, 2019 and will be held a short drive south of Missoula. We have several
fun activities planned, and invite you all to join us.
As usual, we will have our A&S Championship at
this event. Any may enter but only someone residing in the state of
Montana can be declared Champion. But if you are from outside Montana,
don’t let that stop you! You can still win renown among your peers! (and
of course, there are prizes) See below for more information.
The Arte of Combat Tourneys!
The Barony is deep in the planning stages
for rapier and armored tournaments this year. Check out the event page on the NEW
Barony of Sentinels’ Keep website - www.sentinels-keep.org for updated information
on both armored and rapier tournament details.
As winter turns to spring, and the season of travel to events begins
in earnest, the Barony of Sentinels’ Keep will be hosting a pot-luck feast.
The site has a large kitchen so food can be heated, or re-heated. The theme
for the pot-luck will be determined shortly, so keep your eye on our website
for more details!
Merchants are welcome but may need to set up outside as
space is at a premium. There is no merchant fee, but a largess donation to
Their Excellencies would be most appreciated!
Read on to learn more about the site and the A&S competition. We
look forward to seeing you there!

Barony of Sentinels’ Keep Spring Arts & Sciences Championship
Calling all Artisans from near and far! Spring Feast in March 2019 will be
the time to illuminate and celebrate the talents of the gentles of the realm
at our annual Arts & Sciences Championship. Details about the format of
the competition will be posted to the Baronial website,
