Event details
Come join us as the Barony of Settmour Swamp celebrates the 35th Quest for Wit & Wisdom.

QUEST is Settmour Swamp's local camping event and includes competitions to determine the Barony’s champions for heavy weapons fighting, rapier combat, thrown weapons and archery.  There is also an Artisan's row (live displays and hands-on demos), a brewing competition, a silent auction, a bardic circle, and of course the Quest.  It is a scavenger hunt and an obstacle course and a mystery to be solved all combined in an adventure!  Come and test your wit, courage and skill at a chance to win the Quest as well as wondrous prizes!

Baron Jonathan Miles and Baroness Teresa Ana Perez, welcome all to join in our weekend-long celebration. 

CHILDREN are most welcome, but please supervise your children at all times.  Anyone under the age of eighteen must be accompanied to the event by a parent or legal guardian.  The SCA youth waiver policy will be enforced.

WE ASK THAT PEOPLE NOT SET UP THEIR TENTS UNTIL THEY HAVE SIGNED IN AT THE GATE/TROLL in order to avoid any confusion about the layout of the camping areas.

PETS are permitted, and must be kept on a leash at all times.  Certain areas will be off limits to pets.

ALCOHOL POLICY:  No alcoholic beverages may be brought on site.  There will be a site-run bar available, and open until 2:00am.  This policy will be strictly enforced by event staff.  Anyone in violation of this policy will be removed from the site.  Rules for the brewing competition will include instructions on how to store these items on site.
