Summer's End Sept 12-14th 2014

Greetings unto all who read this:
   
    A hushed whisper creeps out upon the land. Steadily it grows till it is heard as a roar, the roar of the Kraken.  Once again the Shire of Krakafjord will be hosting their Summer’s End gathering in September.  To that end we send out this invite to one and all, come if you dare and test yourself against Armoured warriors, draw your blades and cross them with cunningly skilled Rapiers. Bring your words of wit and song for a bardic circle where many shall enter but there can only be one survivor.

    
    Come for fellowship, for challenge, for laughter and fun. Come and be part of our best event yet.

    As usual, merchants are most welcome to come and ply their wares.  There will be no extra merchant’s fee, only the regular gate fee will apply. On Saturday we will be opening the merchants row to the local public once again, to try and make this event a bit more worth while for the merchants. If you are planning on attending this event, please notify the Event Steward so space can be set aside for you.  

    There are restaurants within walking distance. We will have some onsite food available.  Accommodations available next door to this site, the cost will be aprox $89 per night based on double occupancy...the cost might go down if we can book more then 7 rooms. A campsite is also located next door with power and water hook ups, the cost is $20 per night on a first come first serve basis.  We do have room onsite for some RVs without water and power.

    Combat Challenges:
There will be Heavy and Rapier competitions, but sadly no Archery.

    For the A&S competition, our 2013 winner Lady Ismerelda has decided the challenge is to create an entry based on Largess...and to that end all entries will be given for Largess. Documentation will be required as usual.  

    Bardic circle:  It is time for all good bards to dust off their thinking caps and sharpen the charcoal stick. Songs, poems and jokes, as long as it is true to the dream it counts.  Got a drum, a pipe, or any other musical talent, bring it along and let the good times roll.  There are also plans for an interesting version to the medieval insult competition, so look forward to this.
