Westermark Madness /Collegium Nebulorum - Barony of the Westermark (Milpitas, CA)
Come one, come all to Samurai Madness, where East meets Westermark! You are cordially invited to spend the weekend frolicking with us as the Barony of the Westermark pulls back the silk veil, and explores all things Japanese. There will be classes, contests, and Haiku's a plenty. Fighters beware, spears and katanas are the weapons of the day. Fencing hijinks too. Will your clan be the first to defend, and escort your tea bearing brethren across the field of battle to win the relay? Or maybe you will be victorious in carving the best likeness of Their Excellencies out of a daikon radish? These are but a few of the challenges that lay before you.
The Barony of the Westermark will also be hosting Collegium Nebulorum, which is being held in conjunction with Westermark Madness on September 15th. There is no additional fee to come learn. We have a track of classes that includes dance, fingerloop braiding, tablet weaving, Henrician Gowns, arrow wrapping, documentation and much much more. A link to a detailed schedule will be posted shortly to all the major lists and from the website for the Westermark Madness Event. We look forward to a day of much madness and learning.
