The Shire of Hauksgarðr invites you to join us for our 15th August in the Park, and the Viking Bog Olympics. There is no site fee for this event!

We will also hold the annual trials for the Shire of Hauksgarðr Defender.

There will be games and contests throughout the day, including: Hunkerhausen, Glima (shield wrestling), Togahonk, Jomsvinger, and the Porthole Rat Toss! For the heavy fighters there will be a Holmgång contest. If you’re looking for something a little more relaxed, we will have a selection of board and lawn games like Hnefatafl, Taflkast, Kubb and Petanque. We’ll also have some A&S classes to keep you busy.

There will be plenty of activities to choose from if you wish, or just relax in the shade of the big trees and be a spectator if that’s your preference!

There will be a potluck in the afternoon, so bring your favorite dish & your feast gear.

Defender’s Tourney:

This year, the trials are open to others not from the Shire! If you are open to supporting fighting activities in the Shire for the next year, and willing to help organize next years trials, you are welcome to vie for the honour of becoming the next Shield of Hauksgarðr! The lists format will be determined based on the number of fighters who attend. We will be fighting Holmgang tournament and the victor will be chosen based on the outcome of the tournament, and participation in the Bog Olympics!
