The Thirty-ninth Year

Who's Afraid of Beowulf? -- Ravensfjord

August 13-15, 2004 (AS XXXIX)

Private Residence,
Nikiski, AK

From The Page (August, 2004):

The days of summer dawn clear and warm, and the dread monster Grendel has dragged himself from the murky depths intent on laying waste to our fair shire once again! We call on all brave Western warriors and beg their aid in slaying this fearsome beast. Whoever shall land the killing blow and take back our Axe shall be named protector of Ravensfjord for the year. Activities will include a heavy tourney, rapier battles, archery championship, best pre-tourney boast competition, funeral pyre for fallen warriors, classes/discussion group on all things Viking, a children's area (parental supervision required), a bardic to rock the heavens, and more. There is no potable water on site, so bring what you need for the weekend. There will be no feast provided, but group dining is encouraged. Expect camping to be fairly rough- bring your air mattresses and your bug spray (we are right next to a lake!).

Site Information: Creavanore Keep (mka Villa Incognito, home of Gunnar and Lasairiona), (address omitted), Nikiski. Site fee will be $2 for members and $5 for non-members. Site opens at noon on Friday and closes at 10 pm on Sunday.

Autocrat: Gunnar Olfuss (contact info omitted).
