|As winter turns to spring, nature awakens once again. Their Excellencies, Erec and Jehannine, Baron and Baroness of Settmour Swamp, invite the known world to their annual celebration of the thawing of the mud.|
Please join us on March 22 at the Salaam Shrine in Livingston, NJ as we gather to enjoy much that our society has to offer. There will be tournaments of martial skill in armored combat, rapier fencing, thrown weapons, and youth fighting. There will be a grand arts and sciences competition and artist's village. There will be a baking competition and a brewing competition. There will be shopping with some of the finest merchants from around the known world. And to cap off the day, we will have a wonderful feast.
The armored combat tournament will be fought in the traditional Mudthaw double elimination format. The tournament will begin promptly at noon. There will be tournaments for rapier combat, thrown weapons, and youth fighting. The fencing tournament will begin at 12:30 PM. Thrown weapons will begin at 1:15 PM. More information will be forthcoming in regards to youth combat.
For those more inclined to the Arts and Sciences, we will be hosting an artisans row for people to share their knowledge, and a competition to show off your finished product. Additional details will be posted when they become available.
The East Kingdom Brewers Guild will be hosting a brewers roundtable or competition. While man cannot live on beer alone, we will be holding the now annual Mudthaw bread baking competition. Please include a full ingredient list for all entries and documentation. Judges will give preference to those entries which could have been made in period.
