Greetings unto all of Avacal! The Barony of Myrgan Wood invites you to join us in witnessing the Coronation of the Heirs to the Thrones of Avacal, Their Royal Highnesses, Ivar and Asney! Long May They Reign! Their Royal Highnesses will ascend the Griffon Throne of Avacal on Saturday June 2nd, 2018 at the Quad War site. (Marsden, SK)
To celebrate this momentous occasion, there will be a plethora of activities geared towards one and all. They will also be choosing new Champions of Sword and Arrow and these tournaments will run on Saturday. The populace is encouraged to bring banners, flags and period shades to the field. In addition to these prestigious tournaments, there will also be opportunities in Rapier, Youth Combat and many Arts and Sciences classes.
The Armoured and Archery Champions tournaments will not be the only chances to participate in these disciplines.
