NORSE HARVEST FEAST, Akornebir (Walla Walla, WA) November 2, 2002

Scandinavians and Norsemen and Vikings, oh my! Can’t get enough of those horny-helmeted fellows? Come to Akornebir’s festival of harvest and enjoy the best in Viking hospitality!

During the day there will be a heavy fighter’s holmgang tournament and a bridge defender’s prize tourney fought across a picturesque stone bridge. Not a fighter? Amuse yourself with period board and card games, informal (non-Ithra) classes on Norse culture, the ever-popular hunkerhausen (if you don’t know, you have to show up to find out!), dancing, and more! Prizes for smalls in Norse outdoor and board games.

In the evening there will be feasting and merry-making. The feast, served to our guests in the traditional Akornebirian manner by members of the Canton, will be potluck. (Mundane last name A-F: side dish/salad, G-N: main dish, O-T: dessert, U-Z: bread & cheese.) A bardic will be held during the meal for entertainment (please remember that smalls will be in attendance), with dancing and revelry to follow.

Site fee is $5 ($8 for non-members), smalls 2-10 $3 ($6 non-member), under 2 free (make checks payable to “Canton of Akornebir, SCA Inc.”), and a $20 family cap ($30 non-member).
