The Fiftieth Year

Boar Hunt and Feast -- Beaconsgate (Province of the Mists)

December 6, 2015 (AS L)

Camp Herms,
El Cerrito, CA

From The Page (December, 2015):

Winter is coming, and that means it's time for the Annual Beconsgate Boar Hunt and Feast sponsored by the Province 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 will add a “Stag Hunt” for rapier fighters. While the hunt is happening 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.

Site information: We will be at our traditional site, Camp Herms, (address omitted). El Cerrito, CA 94530. In addition, the Site is “discretely wet”, so please decant.

Site opens at 10am and closes at 10pm.

Site fee is by free will donation. Feast tickets are $15 and will be available at some events or contact the Autocrat.

Autocrat: Dafydd Waleis (contact info omitted)

Feast Cook: Viscount Michael of the Shire (contact info omitted). Please contact the cook with any allergies or food concerns a minimum of two weeks prior to the event.
