The fun and friendly Shire of Mountain Edge (Yamhill County,
Oregon) welcomes all to our 9th Defenders Tourney!
Our site is close to Hwy 18 in McMinnville with ample off-street
parking just steps from the great hall. Heavy armored combat is
planned to be on the lawn (inside if weather doesn't cooperate),
rapier combat is INSIDE unless the rapier fighters decide outside
is better due to very cooperative weather. The huge hall has an
A&S display area, tables/chairs for merchants and visiting, a
Family Activities area, restrooms (ADA compliant), and a large
kitchen. The entire site is ADA accessible. Family Activities plans
a variety of games and activities for children! The Shire PPWs
(Public Participation Weapons), an indoor PPW eric, and a Sr. YAC
Marshal will also be available.
Site fee includes beverages and snacks, a light lunch of soups,
cheese, and bread, and dessert served just prior to closing
