Defender of the Hart XV

June 20, 2015

Kootenai, Shoshone, Benwah Counties Idaho

Autocrat: Ted the Merchant

The Canton of Silverhart would like to invite one and all to our Summer tournament event to select the 2015 Defender of the Hart through challenges of games and combat.

Defender of the Hart will be on: June 20th 2015

Where: G.O. Phippeny Park aka. 7th street park in Coeur d’Alene!

When: Gate opens at 9:00am we will begin setting up demonstration space at 8:30am.

Site Fee: 7$ there will be a 5$ non member surcharge.

Children 17 and under free waivers will have to be signed.

Be courteous of the neighbors as the event is in the heart of the city.

For Parking you will most likely have to drop off gear and then park vehicle and walk back to the Park itself.

There is a Car Show downtown just 4 blocks from the park which will increase the foot traffic and parking issues. The benefit of this will be that we can draw in a large number of people that want to look at what we are doing.

As in years past the overall defender will be chosen from the person who does the best at the championship events. The more you enter the more chance you have to win. Winner gets a nifty chest full of goodies as well as the adoration of all.

Heavy fighting





This year we will be holding a Y.A.C. (Youth Armored Combat) Tournament  to select a Champion.

The Canton has decided to set up a series of tents and booths in which we will place all of the aspects of SCA life and what makes each of us keep coming.

We are looking for people that are willing to demonstrate their skills on the site as well as setup tables to simply show off.

Examples include Weaving, Dyeing, illumination, Lampwork Beading, Chainmail, Embroidery, Leatherworking, Armor Making, Woodwork, Blacksmithing.


Merchants: We would welcome anyone that wishes to join us. This is a city park and the city has a fee for setting up a sales booth. you have to go to parks and recreation to fill out paperwork and pay fees the week before the event. When I asked she said it was 25$ for non food merchants.

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.
