Hopping Phules – Baroness War

Barony of Vulcanfeldt

April 9-11, 2010

Eschbach Park, Naches, WA

 

Long has it been since the Baronesses of An Tir gathered
forces to wage war against each other.  This spring they
shall do so once again.  So come and fight for the glory
and honor of your Baroness on the war field, archery range,
rapier eric, or in the arts and sciences competition.

The Barony of Vulcanfeldt is the core producer of hops in all
of An Tir!  All who brew or imbibe good beer know what a
valuable commodity that can be.  Baroness Regina will
gather her army to defend their prized crop against all
comers.  The Baronesses who have banded together with
the most War Points shall win a prize chest to distribute as
they wish.

Sunday will feature a Baroness Champions Tourney.  Each
landed Baroness may sponsor two combatants to fight for her
glory.  The winning victor may then present their
winnings to her Excellency.
