The Forty-Ninth Year

Boar Hunt and Feast -- Province of the Mists

December 13, 2014 (AS XLIX)

Camp Herms,
El Cerrito, CA

From The Page (November, 2014):

Winter is coming, and that means it's time for the Annual Beaconsgate Boar Hunt and Feast sponsored by the Provence of the Mists! Boar Hunt is a fighting activity. A Boar is played by a fighter armed with two maces. Hunters are fighters armed only with spears, and "hounds" are fighters armed with daggers. There are also unarmored "dogs", who seek out the boars and bark when they are discovered -- this can be a great role for a mature child accompanied by a responsible adult. If there is enough interest (and a qualified volunteer marshal), we may add a hunt for rapier fighters. THE HUNT during the day, we will have many activities within the hall (dancing, singing, music, games) for non-fighters and tired fighters, so bring musical instruments, dancing shoes, and board games . Banners to help make the hall more festive are especially welcome! Please plan to bring something for your lunch if you are coming on site early.
