Border War

September 12, 2014 to September 14, 2014

Spokane - Spokane County, WA

Autocrat: Fina MacGrioghaire device3767OP

As the weather cools the threat of war to the border of mighty Wealdsmere is heard throughout the Inlands of An Tir. Who this foe may be is unknown, but the threat will not go unanswered! Who is brave enough to answer the call of Blood and Mayhem to protect our fair lands?

We will be having a Big Hair and Woad contest (clothes required) to see who can best channel their inner Pict!
             Strike fear into the hearts of your enemies! Deck yourself out with woad, show off your epic war cry, and challenge yourself to see if you can make the biggest hair!!!

            We are holding contests (adult and youth) for the best war cry, woaded, and the maker of the biggest hair. Blue paint & hair care products will be provided. Participants are able to bring other goodies from home to assist in creating their entries. Devise your battle plan ahead of time (and recruit your hair model if appropriate) as you’ll only have an hour to create your masterpieces. (Youth participants must be accompanied by their adult guardian.)
