Emprise of the Black Lion

September 22, 2017 to September 24, 2017

King County, WA

Autocrat: Alianora Greymoor device2161OP


Greetings all,


After deliberation with the event staff and branch leadership in Madrone, and with input from the modern agencies in Kittitas county, we've reluctantly come to the decision that for the well-being of participants and horses we will cancel the Emprise of the Black Lion for 2017. 


This is due to the proximity of the site to five uncontained fires:  the Jolly Mountain and Jack Creek fires to the North of the site, the Sawmill Creek fire to the West, and the Norse Peak and American fires to the South.  With fires on three sides of the event, the air quality is highly likely to be poor regardless of the direction of the wind and the threat of evacuation would factor heavily into the calculation that people would make in deciding to bring their families and their horses.


We appreciate everyone's ongoing support for the event and recognize the many hours that have gone into planning, including artisans creating site tokens, prizes, menus, tournament designs, and other investments of time and energy into the pageantry and community of the event.  We look forward to renewed planning for the Emprise again in 2018.  We also thank the Barony of Vulcanfeldt for their support of the event.


In Service,


Baroness Alianora Greymoor 

Event Steward

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
