Shire of Sylvan Glen of the Society for Creative Anachronism, is hosting Siege of Glengary XIX on Friday September 26 at 4pm through Sunday September 28 at noon at the Jefferson County WV Fairgrounds in Kearneysville in the eastern panhandle.
Our adversaries to the south and to the north have become restless and threaten to invade our borders on a quest for the coveted Sylver Apple Bucket. We must amass our brave soldiers of sword and shield, our masters of dagger, draw and parry, our loosers of arrow, our throwers of ax as well as our wielders of pen, brush and needle to lay waste to this trespass into our fair kingdom.
This year they are adding a Queens Rapier Championship to be held on Saturday September 27. Other events will include a Siege Points Competition for the Sylver Apple in various armed and gentle arts; heavy, rapier, thrown, archery, atl atl, and A&S. It will also be home to the InterKindgom Equestrian Worshop. Other activities separate and part of the Siege Points are a Torchlight Tandem Tourney on Friday night, four bridge battles, four field battles, pick up fighting, fencing scenarios, novelty shoot, GLENO (like bingo but with arrow), Glow Throw tournament, a novelty throw, arts & science competition, siege engines, and more.
The Traveler’s Repast will be on Friday evening for $12. Breakfast and Saturday Dayboard are included with site fee.
Site fees for adults for the whole weekend are $14. An additional $5 fee for non-members. This is a camping event with no additional fee for camping. Everyone will need to sign an Equestrian Waiver since there will be horses around. No fee for those 17 and under.
