Event details
Once again, we will be having our annual Harper's Retreat Labor Day weekend in scenic New Durham, NH. 

The current Baronial Bard of Stonemarche, will be running the Bardic Tournament Saturday night to help Their Excellencies, Baron Dorio and Baronessa Jocelyn, choose their new Baronial Bard. 

Their Excellencies will also be sponsoring tournies to choose their new Baronial Champions of Rattan, Rapier and Archery this weekend. 

And, as always, there will be a feast Saturday night, before the Bardic.  The feast is capped at 100 seats. 

Merchants are welcome, and there is no additional fee for merchanting.

Please be aware:  there are restrictions as to driving on the grass that will be enforced again this year.  Also, the beach will be available again for swimming, but it will be at your own risk, as there is no lifeguard.  Children MUST be accompanied by an adult on the beach - if children are found there unaccompanied, the beach will be immediately closed for the rest of the event to everyone.  This is not negotiable.

Site Opens: August, 29, 2014, 3:00 PM
Site Closes: September, 1, 2014, 5:00 PM
