Event details
Updated:  9/29/2012 **Friday night has been added to the weekend event!

The fair shire of Glenn Linn is pleased to host an event with archery and the arts.  Shire champions in archery and the arts & sciences will be chosen!  Plans include the usual creativity towards a full day of ARCHERY fun and skill by the humble Lords T'mas and Isenbart, and Erik 'Mage.  After feast will be a night shoot! 

The site is forty plus acres of trails through trees around a beautiful pond, as well as platform tents and winterized buildings for ease of packing - but you may bring your tent if you also wish.

Art & science CLASSES are being planned.  Ongoing WORKSHOPS will include cloisonne/enameling, lamp work beads, forges, more ;) If you have any ideas or desires, please contact frigga at the email address below.  It is the same site as MSS8 that was held in Lake George, NY a couple years ago.  The site has:  lots of outdoor space for forges and casting; indoor space that is out of wind for torches; and also outdoor but under a roof porches for any other type of class! 

CLASS SCHEDULE in addition to open forge time: 
9-11:30am Enameling/Champleve/Cloissonne class and workshop
10-1130am Campfire Cooking (we can use the finished dishes to add to day board)
2-4pm Lampwork Bead introduction and open workshop to follow
2-4pm Shoe Patterning

An early FEAST at 5:30pm will be provided for a separate fee.  See below.
Feast menu:  Roast pork, roast chicken, spring salad, hossenfeffer soup and veggie bisque soup, spinach with bacon, honeyed carrots, roasted fall roots, fresh bread mini loafs with flavored butters, cheeses, fresh fruit and veggies, baked desserts.

Please consider bringing an item towards the POT LUCK DAY BOARD held in the feast hall to compliment the two warm soups and some simple fighter's fare.  *Period fare is not required.* Thank you in advance for bringing a dish to share!

This event is two overnights:  Friday to Sunday for late night archery and forging activity.  You may bring your own tent to pitch on the grassy, green areas, OR reserve a platform canvas tent with four cots and mattresses, OR reserve a mattress and floor area in one of the buildings. 

PETS are welcome as long as all the NYS laws are followed (all four legged attendees must be leashed and picked up after your pet).  A dumpster is available for all waste.

Open to all those attending are the magical amenities:  modern showers and flushies in the buildings.  Also, privies are located throughout the site.  Potable water spigots are also throughout the site.
