Saturday April 13th, 2013

Join us for a day of revelry and play in the spirit of Maximillian!  16th century German garb is admired, but not a requirement.  Equestrians wishing to demonstrate prowess will have opportunities including the lance against the shock quintain, cutting with the sword and demonstrating skills in mounted archery.  There will be a treasure/scavenger hunt for those wishing to explore the nooks and crannies of the site.  In the gallery area observing the activities there will be period board, card and dice games throughout the day. If you like to play with your food, Flidais Ni Eitigen will be facilitating a cook’s play-day.  In the evening, there will be a pot luck dinner including a roast pig.  Please bring a dish to share if you wish to partake. Period food is admired, but not required. Remember to bring your own serving dishes & utensils.
