My lords and ladies, pray attend! 

The Shire of Hauksgarðr invites you to join us for a relaxing day at our 10th annual August in the Park event. Share in a potluck feast, enter a contest, take a class...there will plenty of activities to choose from if you wish, or just relax in the shade of the big trees if that's your preference!. 

Fees: There is no gate fee...yes, it's free!

Tournaments:
We will be holding our Heavy Defender’s Tourney to select the Shield of Hauksgrðr. We invite all fighters to come test the skill of our fighters, and to try for a prize of their own. 

A&S Contest:

The "Hauksgrðr Half-dozen" largess contest. Bring 6 similar items appropriate for largess. They don’t need to be identical. Examples – 6 pouches, necklaces, etc. Entries will be voted on throughout the day and a favorite chosen. The winner will get one of each entry to keep and the rest go into largess to be given out at other events in the kingdom. Include a small blurb explaining your item if need be. Label (discreetly) with your name


Classes: 
Heavy combat, Rapier or A&S…we have classes for everyone!. Currently scheduled classes include:

Basics of Heavy combat;   

Learning the Roman Knuckle bone Dice Game; 

Make a Penanular Brooch;

The game of Petanque;

Viking wire woven jewelry; 

Lampworked glass beads;

Potluck: Bring your favorite dish to share. We have a shelter with power, so crockpots are ok. Please remember that some people have food allergies so please label with your ingredients. Bring enough food to feed 10 people or more. Bring your own feast gear and drinks.

There is open, moving water nearby. Please watch your children carefully.

If you need a place to stay the night before (or plan to hit the Pub and need it for after, maybe?), Cascade Locks has three RV parks/campgrounds and several hotels. The little campground right there at the Marine park is very nice, and walking distance to Thunder island Brewing!
