WAR!

Pre-registration for fighting is now open! This is something new we are trying this year. If you are fighting either Heavy or Rapier please email your SCA name to gmwebminister@gmail.com, we will look up your fighter authorization and send you an email to confirm pre-reg. At the event you will simply check in and then proceed to armor inspection. Our MIC Arqai Ne'ürin reminds you, THIS DOES NOT REPLACE HAVING YOUR FIGHTER CARD ON YOU! If you do not have your card we will be happy to see it on YOUR phone via the website but sometimes signal is scarce. No card = No fighting!

Equestrian

I, Lord Bernard of York, Equestrian Champion of Glymm Mere, offer greetings to all equestrians. Honey War, in Glymm Mere, is just two days away on July 28, 2017. It is time for news on the equestrian tournament.
The event has arranged for several stalls and supplemented the cost at a blanket amount. I am still working with the stable owners on what additional (if any) costs would be incurred. With 7 horses registered, little over half have been reserved. Please contact Bernard of York (Phil Gilbert) to reserve a stall. The stables are unable to supply feed or bedding.
The equestrian tournament and competition for the Horse Champion of Glymm Mere will take place on Saturday. The day will start with a horse and rider's presentation to court at 10:00am. This will be followed by either a round of jousting or mounted combat. At 12:00 the tournament will start.
There will be five challenges with the same maximum score possible based on a hunting theme. The rider and horse's final score is the sum of the top 4 scores. These will include elements from lance the hare (heads at three heights), shoot the roe deer (archery or thrown), boar hunt (lance the boar), spear the birds (rings) and lance a bear (quintain).

Iron Scribal
This year we will be testing your illumination skills! Prizes will be awarded to the winners and also war points! The scrolls will be divided into three categories, Apprentice, Journeyman and Master. Please remember to write your name and Barony on the back of your scroll as they will be judged solely on your work. Thank you to HL Rosamund Winder for running this!

Iron Bardic
My Lords and Ladies, pray attend! There will be an Iron Bardic at Honey War this year!! Calling all bards, whether seasoned or new to sign up at 8am at the Bardic Pavilion, roll your die for your theme and either turn it in or perform it at 3pm. It must be an original work, either lyrics, or existing words set to an original tune. There will be prizes and a war point to win! Thank you to Aine Skye for running this!

Iron Needle
We are bringing back this exciting challenge this year! This years theme is "something to hold things in". A mystery item that must be incorporated into your item(s) will be available at 8am on Saturday morning at the A&S pavilion. There will be a prize for the most items made and also the best piece made. Thank you to HL Heidr in Ljosa for volunteering to run this!

Brewing
This year's brewing contest will consist of four categories:

Wines and Meads
Beers and Ciders
Cordials and Infusions
Non alcoholic brewed beverages

Each entrant will be limited to two entries per category. Each entry must include an ingredient list, and extra points will be given for period documentation.

The winner of each category will win a war point to assign to their desired Barony. Entrants may, and are encouraged to, enter and win multiple categories. May the power of your drink prevail!

Siege Cooking
There will be three mystery ingredients ready for pick up at 11am at the Glymm Mere Baronial Encampment. You MUST not start cooking until 11am. You may beg, borrow, trade or abscond for more ingredients. When you pick up your mystery ingredients you must tell them where your station is set up at. The judges will be stopping by during the hours to check up on you. You may turn in as many dishes as you like. Your dish(s) must be turned in by 2pm for judging at the Glymm Mere Baronial Encampment.

IT'S A WITCH!
A new fun game to play through-out the day on Saturday.  If you are given the mark of the witch you must put the items on and stand in place for two minutes.  If no one yells "IT'S A WITCH!" to you within that two minutes you are free to give the mark of the witch to anyone of your choosing.  You CANNOT force someone to take the items.  If someone does say "IT'S A WITCH" to you, you must then go find a Knight.  They will pass judgment upon you and instruct you on what to do to get rid of the mark.  Do as they say and only then can you pass the mark onto anyone of your choosing.  (Please remember this is a fun, PG game.)

 ​
