Bjodann eda Bjodannskona Vitja (Bjarnarstrond A&S)

Friday November 16th, 2018 to Sunday November 18th, 2018
Barrow (Utqiagvik), Alaska

Sponsored by the Barony of Winter’s Gate

The fine folk of the soon-to-be Canton of Bjarnarstrond are hungry for knowledge and skills. As such they will be holding an A&S workshop that they might clothe themselves well, and to learn to make the weapons and armor that will enable them to successfully defend our northernmost border. Merriment to celebrate the visit of the Prince and Princess (and other exalted visitors) will follow this day of learning.

Dress as if hell just froze over, but in layers. Be prepared, if needed, to cover all exposed skin. This includes your eyes. A whisperer will be awaiting your arrival and will safely release you from said dragon. They will then deliver you to a place of warm sanctuary, otherwise known as 2426. Space is limited. For this event RSVP is required.

Barrow (Utqiagvik) is on the shores of the Arctic Ocean. Please bring clothing appropriate to the weather. Be aware that weather delays may affect travel in and out of Barrow (Utqiagvik). Home hospitality is available, albeit extremely limited. RSVP is required to arrange housing and ground transportation.
