Beconsgate Boar Hunt

Saturday December 13th, 2014 to Sunday December 14th, 2014
El Cerrito, California

Winter is coming, and that means it's time for the Annual Beaconsgate Boar Hunt and Feast sponsored by the Province of the Mists!

Boar Hunt is a fighting activity. A Boar is played by a fighter armed with two maces. Hunters are fighters armed only with spears. And "hounds" are fighters armed with daggers. There are also unarmored "dogs", who seek out the boars and bark when they are discovered -- this can be a great role for a mature child accompanied by a responsible adult.

If there is enough interest (and a qualified volunteer marshal), we may add a hunt for rapier fighters.

While The Hunt is on during the day, we will have many activities within the hall — dancing, singing, music, games — for non-fighters and tired fighters, so bring musical instruments, dancing shoes, and board games. Banners to help make the hall more festive are especially welcome! Please plan to bring something for your lunch if you are coming on site early.
