Shire of Vinhold Play Date & Prize Tourney

Saturday August 3rd, 2019

Trees! Breezes! One of the more temperate areas in the Northern Bay Area. The weather will be nicer than Pennsic. Have fun being you and doing your thing! Play dates are great events where like-minded people get together, share ideas and make things. There will be four main areas for play date fun: Cooking, Bardic, Fighting, and Other Arts and Sciences. This event is also on the Fighter Road Show Schedule.

The Prize Tourney will be held about 11 a.m. in the wide fighting area. The winner will be the new champion of the Shire of Vinhold and commander of the Vinhold army for the next year.

The Bardic area has a stage and plenty of shade. Try out your new works and if you wish compete to be the new Bard of the Shire of Vinhold.

Other Arts and Sciences will provide space and materials to exercise your creative talents to make a project to take home.

The Cooking area has a few permanent grills, but we do encourage you to bring your own stoves for better control. There are several permanent picnic tables, or your can bring your own tables. Some additional portable tables will also be provided. There will be a potluck picnic during the lunch break.

Come enjoy great period food, great fighting, bardic arts, crafts and fellowship.
