        Join the Shire of Glyn Dwfn for
Hocktide- it’s sure to be a great event! We have many exciting
activities planned for this year and a beautiful new site.

        It is time for our Outrider, the
Summits Equestrian Champion, to pass on his title.
In addition, Glyn Dwfn will be choosing its premier
Equestrian Champion from the competitors. This
year’s site provides many new and exciting features for equestrian
activities, and should allow spectators a great view of the
action.

        Glyn Dwfn is proud to announce that
we will be holding a tournament to determine our first ever
Cut & Thrust Champion.

        We will also hold our Heavy
Defender tournament
. Bring all the weapon types you have
and be prepared to use them.

       
Hocktide’s Rapier activities include a
“Capture the Documents” prize tourney and a trench battle.

         We encourage all artisans to
enter a piece in the Arts & Sciences
competition
. The theme of this competition is “Here there
be Dragons” in honor of the central landmark of our new event site.
Bring your poems, your paintings, your embroidery, or castings;
whatever your craft, show us how you would make a dragon.
Documentation is to be very informal and can be verbal. There is a
wonderful prize for the winner, so let’s see some scaly beasts!

        We are having several
wonderful classes for this event which
include: Ground to mounted Combat, Introduction to the At’latl,
Using Pine Sap, and Medieval Embroidery Stitches.

         We are pleased to announce
that there will be Archery and Thrown Weapons
happening this year in a wonderful (and mostly shaded) spot. Due to
the unique features of this site, the archery/thrown range will be
limited to targets 20 yards and under, but it will be very close to
the rest of site so archers/throwers don’t need to trek too far.
At’latl will be farther out for the sake of safety, but it will
also be happening.

         We will also be having our
3rd annual Voice Heraldry Competition.
Please lend your voice to those who need the volume and eloquence
of a talented voice herald. There will be a prize for the herald
who most effectively keeps the populace informed of the day’s
activities!

         The Pot Luck
Feast
is back by popular demand! Bring an appetizer, side,
or main dish to the town square Saturday evening and share a meal.
Please note that desserts are NOT included in the pot luck- dessert
will be handled separately.

         Think your encampment is the
best? Let the populace decide in Hocktide’s first
Hospitality Competition. Individuals, households,
or encampments participating are encouraged to invite the populace
into their encampment after the pot luck and offer them desserts or
beverages (or both) and and show them a good time. Make sure you
have some extra seats around the fire, encourage your bards to
entertain, and plan to bribe people with food and drink to vote for
your camp. This is an opportunity to get to know your neighbors and
make new friends. Ambiance is important, but this is NOT limited to
period encampments; we encourage everyone to open up their camp and
socialize. A fantastic prize will be awarded to the encampment
voted the most hospitable which will help the winners make their
camp even better.
