History: See below ... Hawks Haven is a Canton of the Barony of Darkwood.

Location:S. Santa Clara, San Benito Counties, California

Detail from the History of Darkwood:
In April 1986, the Hawkshaven group held its first meeting and 6 months later, in October, petitioned the Crown to become a shire. Their first group activities included dancing lead by Muriel de Pays Perdu and also fighter tournies held at Christmas Tree Park in Gilroy, current site of the Gilroy Garlic Festival. Back then, the infamous Helm Luncheon was simpler in terms of presentation and types of food offered; but it was always a lot of fun to see whose helm lunch would receive top bit. Even the Groveling Contest was highly competitive and enjoyed by the populace.
