Spend a week at the Ravens Key Castle site.
Come for Hartwood Birthday Bash and stay the week until Ravens Key War. (No charge for the intervening week’s camping.) Ravensley will once again defend innocent fungi from the raiding Cragmerian hordes. War points will be given for a Resurection Battle, a Seige Battle, a Boat Battle, a Maiden Rescue, Target Archery and Rapier Combat.
A&S points will be given for the Duello Cantare, Best Castle in any medium Contest and the Iron Cauldron Contest.
Just for fun we have the Sitting Duck Archery Shoot, the Duello Marshmallow and our annual Children’s Dragon Hunt.
