The Fifty-Second Year

Boar Hunt -- Province of the Mists

December 9, 2017 (AS LII)

Camp Herms,
El Cerrito, CA

From The Page (November, 2017):

Winter is coming, and that means it’s time for the Annual Beconsgate Boar Hunt and Feast sponsored by the Province of the Mists! We will be at our traditional site, Camp Herms. The site is “discretely wet”, so please decant and take any containers with you; we cannot leave them on-site.

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. There will be a corresponding “Stag Hunt” for rapier fighters. Battles will be held rain or shine.

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. Feast ticket required for evening: No offboard seating will be available. Please contact feast cook Alfar Uthersson at (email address omitted) with any allergies or food concerns a minimum of two weeks prior to the event.

Autocrat: Amanda Ackerman (contact info omitted)

Feast Registration: $15/person (Adults and Children). No off-board seating available
