Join the College of Lyonsmarche for the most renowned and glorious
War Concerning Lentils in the entire Knowne World! This year, Honor
War is being held at an amazing, brand-new site. We will no longer
be at Hellsgate State Park as in years past, but now at the
Lewiston Round-Up grounds. What does this mean to you?
1. No more water hazard for young children or pets.
2. The parking
situation has been Vastly Improved.
3. Lots more flushies & showers; electricity is also available
for RV’s and those with CPAP machines.
4. Not so much ‘noise-level consideration’ needed.
Revels & merriment may proceed apace!
5. We are keeping the same fee schedule as last year, with no
increases whatsoever. Huzzah!
6. Do not reserve cabins at Hellsgate Park unless you want to be
there without us.
We will have our ever-popular War of the Lentils! Also shall be
tested the mettle of those nobles who wish to vie for the honor of
being the Champion of Lyonsmarche in: Arts & Sciences, Archery,

one of these titles this year?
In addition, we will have the third Challenge of the Copper Dragon!
This is a combined riddling contest & scavenger hunt, and both
children as well as adults are invited to play. The last few years
have seen the victors of this contest walk away with prize items
indeed worthy of a dragon’s hoard.
Contestants will be required to find as many riddles as they can
(please leave them where they are), and answer them correctly
on their answer sheet. There will also be a handful of
‘scavenger hunt’ items to be tracked down and presented
with the answer sheet. You may play as a single player, or as a
team, but the prize(s) will be awarded the same. Get your
instructions & answer sheet packet at gate, or from
Since the ‘Falling Stars’ shoot proved very popular the
last two years, we shall see the return of this NIGHT TIME clout

loose their arrows mounted with glowsticks upwards to fall toward

be held Friday evening as soon as it is dark enough (approx 8 pm).
Listen for the horns to call you to the range! Bring your archery
gear, everything else will be provided.

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
