Celtic Revolt

May 23, 2014 to May 26, 2014
Wealdsmere

Spokane - Spokane County, WA

Autocrat: Kayte Sondra's Daughter

 

 

 

As the snow melts and the ground thaws our borders are once again in jeopardy. Far off lands have sent word that the Celts are on the move and headed this way. The Celts are revolting and our baron is calling for blood and mayhem in defending our fine barony.

The Barony of Wealdsmere would like to invite one and all to come and enjoy war scenarios, Baroness’ Brine Delicacies Contest, a great archery range, scavenger hunts, classes, Viking prom, A&S competition, siege cooking, filk songs, the choosing of this year’s baronial champions and much, much more.

Wealdsmere is once again proud to accept the hospitality of HL Michael of Lancaster, Sergeant. Come and enjoy his glorious Tower and surrounding perimeter walls for Heavy and Rapier siege enjoyment. We also have the use of the adjacent property belonging to the Department of Natural Resources.

Calling all merchants! Calling all merchants! As spring approaches event season starts. The Barony of Wealdsmere is once again excited to host Celtic Revolt and we are looking for merchants to come and sell their wares. The merchant fee for this event will be an item to use as prizes/largess. If you would like to merchant or have any questions please contact our merchant coordinator Andy Williams at CelticRevolt@yahoo.com, include merchant in the subject line, or the event steward Kayte Blackwell at 509-496-2585 

Saturday Activities

War scenarios  woods battles, open field battles, and castle battles oh my.

Heavy’s

 Some 7foot and under limitations will occur.

Take your shot at disabling your opponent before the battle. Every willing fighter will be able to shoot target archery before the war. Every arrow will be shot at a body silhouette and every shot that hits the silhouette will represent the loss of that body part of an opponent in an open field battle later in the day.  So bring your bows and your skills and win the war.

Please bring rubber band guns if you have them.
