It is time, once again, for Aquaterra’s All Champions
competitions. Heavy Armored Combat, Arts and Sciences,
Rapier, Bardic, Games, Archery, and more!
However, in visiting the beautiful grounds on which we hold our
Championships, we have found an abundance of wildlife has taken
hold since last summer. Given the beauty of our Barony, and the
mild winter, who can blame them for claiming the grounds? But, we
will need to do some ‘cleaning’….and so…
We need to hold a Hunt! The stags and bears are difficult
enough, but the Boar, that crafty beast, he needs to go….
So join us for Boar’s Hunt and All Champions 2015, at the
Masonic Family Park, in Granite Falls WA, June 26-28.
Also to be found over the course of this fabulous weekend will
be a Kids’ Scavenger Hunt, a Largesse Dirty Dozen competition, a
multitude of merchants, a silent auction, a potluck Tavern evening,
