Tain Bo

September 05, 2014 to September 07, 2014
Glyn Dwfn

Medford, Ashland, Jackson Counties, OR

Autocrat: Piaras mac Toirdhealbhaigh

Come join the shire of Glyn Dwfn as we unveil our brand new event, Táin Bó, The Great Cattle Raid! 
This unique event will be a 3 day camping event that is first and foremost...a shire war!

  • We will have many forms of combat including: heavy, rapier, cut & thrust, and youth armored! We will also archery and throw weapons! We are also excited to announce that we will have exciting, unique combat including castle siege scenary (with wooden castle!) and at'latl for thrown weapons!
  • Not interested in the martial pursuits? We will also have amazing opportunities for Arts and Sciences, including period cooking, A&S competitions, a period encampment contest, and bardic!
  • Do you love to help others and volunteer? Excellent! There will be lots of opportunities to judge, water bear, marshal and herald the event
  • There will be a People's Feast (a potluck), a friendly Cattle Raid game, and more.
The great thing about Táin Bó and the activities above is that almost everything you do at the event earns battle points for your shire! Not only will you earn participation points for the activities you are part of or the service you contribute, but we will also be awarding major points to those shires that win in those areas!

Baronial members! Though the winning shire will be determined through that shire populace's participation and prowess in the areas above, baronies and other non-shire affiliated individuals will have a very important role as mercenaries. Friday night, Shires will bid for your services and ask for your help in defeating their foes on the field or through artistic means. Throughout the event as well, you may be asked to contribute to a shire that is in dire need of assistance in winning the war. It will be up to you who you help in their pursuit for the ultimate honor of Táin Bó Champion.

Please visit the website for more information the activities, to pre-register and to reserve camping space!
