The Forty-Seventh Year

Civil Unrest -- Vakkerfjell

April 27, 2013 (AS XLVII)

Yuba College,
Marysville, CA

From The Page (April, 2013):

An opportunity for wealth! Raid your neighbors and defend your property! Featuring SCA heavy combat in a round-robin style full scale raid scenario akin to a multi-fronted war, with an A&S contest of creativity and ingenuity (with the opportunity to acquire more wealth) and a soon-to-be-famous round of Weasel Stomping for the kids. Teams of fighters will defend their castles, livestock and innocent bystanders (provided at the site) while they simultaneously raid their neighbors. Winnings will be tallied at the end of each round and added to the team’s treasury to determine the winners. At the end of the day, there will be simple fare of soup, bread, meat and a sweet to refresh all attendees and celebrate peace being restored to the land. This is not a traditional tourney – please see details on Kingdom Calendar (web address omitted) web page or contact autocrat for additional details.
