Event details
     Greetings and Ves Heill!  Welcome once again to that mid-winter madness known as Bears Tavern.This year, the Tavern welcomes those fierce Norse warriors, the Vikings.  Come on down to the longhouse for warm fires, good friends, great food and memorable times.  In keeping with the theme and weather permitting, there will actually be a thrown weapons contest.  Test your skill with axe and knife.  A Viking style boffer tourney,  arm wrestling, and something different this year.  We're going to swap out the bodice lacing contest for the Best Valkyrie.  (contact autocrat for details)  Prizes awarded for all contests!   As always, this is an AN ADULT THEMED EVENT.  Any children brought to the site are welcomed, but due to limited space the there are no children's activities and there are no children's rates.  Children are the SOLE responsibility of their parents.  There are thirty (30) bunks on sight.  Feel free to bring Aero Beds, air mattresses, cots or whatever works for you.  This will free up the limited bunks for people who have none of the above.  Be considerate to your fellow event goers.  If you are only attending for the day, please don't park your gear on somebody's bunk. 
  Your Culinary Captains for the event will be Lord Methias T.  Weasle (Ron Sadler), and Laurie Cat of House Three Skulls (Laurie Prichard) and will keep you well fueled for the days activities.  The kitchen will be open from noon until 9:00 pm with the menu changing every three hours.  Dietary issues should be addressed to Laurie Prichard @ 516-768-7279
