Our peaceful Barony is facing an invasion and the good Baron and Baroness urge all of Their populace to take up arms in the Battle for the Bay! The Cantankerous Catfish is not content to only rule Willard Bay, he wants our baronial lands as well. With the help of his carp minions he is marching against Gryphon’s Lair and many different heavy and rapier fighting scenarios will be fought during the weekend to keep the Lair in the hands of her fine people, with melee groups of 5 individuals being asked to form. There will be archery and thrown weapons and prizes galore! The Gryphon’s Lair Cook’s Guild will be serving lunch on Saturday for $5/person, so come and enjoy meat pies. There will be an auction where everyone will have an opportunity to win a custom made heraldic silk fan, so come and play with the Barony of Gryphon’s Lair!
In addition to the fun scenarios planned the Barony will also be holding the championship tournaments during which new Heavy and Rapier champions will be determined.
