May Day in Fenix

May 13 @ 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM EDT

Spring has returned, but with it has come a scourge upon the fair Barony of Fenix! Riders bearing the banners of the seven deadly sins have invaded our lands and will be holding the field against all comers on May 13. We ask for the help of all Knights, Masters and Combatants at Arms, to help protect our beloved Barony from this deadly menace!

Also at mayday this year we will host a Spring South Oaken Regional Craftpersons Faire. This is a display and demonstration faire with prizes. It’s is to give artisans a chance to display their work and to interact with the populace. This is not the Individually Judged A&S competition that is a pre-requisite for Kingdom A&S faire. See the The KMoAS page for info on Judged Faire. We will have two A&S competitions based around the theme of the event and a couple of prizes for other categories!

One Prize for Best representation of the Sins or virtue
One Prize for Best Demo,
One Prize for Best Display or documentation,
One Prize for best Food or Beverage entry.

(Please keep entries family friendly)

If anyone is interested in sponsoring a prize or setting up a class or Demo, and entering the faire please message me here or at melissadiconstantino @ yahoo.com.

Susie Hurst has agreed to being my A&S deputy since i am also archery marshal this day! Huge thanks to her for help!

 

Lunch Tavern:
There will be a lunch tavern on site, as there are few restaurants close by. Lunch is included in the site fee, and will consist of simple but filling fare so our guests can keep up their strength for the day’s struggles.
