The Fortieth Year

Who's Afraid of Beowfulf? -- Hrafensfjord

August 12-14, 2005 (AS XL)

Private Residence,
Soldotna, AK

From The Page (August, 2005):

Pack up your longships and pray for wind! The vile menace of Grendel once again threatens our fair shire, and we call upon all our cousins, near and far, to aid us in our struggle against this infectious evil! When we have emerged victorious and beaten Grendel into submission (as we surely will!), there will be great mirth and celebration. All entrants in the heavy tourney must procure a resident of Hrafnafjordr as their consort. The winner of the tourney will hold the Axe of Might and be named the Protector of Hrafnafjordr for one year, and is strongly encouraged to attend shire events, in particular next year's Beowulf. There will be many other activities as well, including a rapier tourney, archery competition, and caber toss (held over from Highland Games), as well as dancing and bardic.

Site Information: The site is Creavanore and Gunnar's home, (address omitted) in Soldotna AK. Site opens at 5 pm on Friday and closes at 5 pm on Sunday. The site fee is $5 for members, $8 for non-members, $3 for children 5-12, and children under 5 free.
