Event details
In ancient times Nordic tribes would gather at the end of a long winter in their Great Hall to celebrate the end of lean days and the hope of a bountiful growing season.  To help celebrate this occasion Barony of the Bridge will gather with wonderful friends, to have great food, tasty drink, much merriment and blessing for the upcoming year. 

Some of the activities that will be taking place are: 


Brewing contest:  Best in category (Mead, Wine, Cordial, & “Other”) & Best Overall

Most Creative Presentation of a Dish:  Let your imagination run wild/anything goes

Most Historically Accurate Dish:  Cooking methods & recipe should be documentable

Reb Yaakov’s challenge:  Reb Yaakov’s challenge is for those who like a real challenge in cooking.  The dish you make must be either pickled, cured, or smoked.  Can you meet the challenge? I sure hope you can.  Remember, make something that you will eat.

Come As You Are Dish:  Any dish-Best overall taste


Best “No crap there I was story”:  Come with your best NCS and win a prize

Gluckhaus Grand Champion Tournament:  Bring your “treasures” and see who will be Champion.  THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!


DISTING Craft Swap:  this is a time to start new projects, bring yours or share some crafting supplies with others.  Bring any crafting supplies you feel others may have a use for and see who would like to swap.  Who knows what new found treasure you may go home with!

As we have done in the past if you would like to donate a prize please let us know.  We also encourage any and all furs, throws or regalia that will help transform this into a Great Hall for our event (please make sure your name is marked on them).
