Beaconsgate Boar Hunt, Province of the Mists

Saturday December 3rd, 2016
El Cerrito, California
Winter is coming, and that means it’s time for the Annual Beconsgate Boar Hunt and Feast sponsored by the Province of the Mists! We will be at our traditional site, Camp Herms. The Site is “discretely wet”, so please decant and take any containers with you; we cannot leave them on-site.
 
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 will add a “Stag Hunt” for rapier fighters.
 
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! There will be a prize given for best Boar Hunt themed table decoration.
Please plan to bring something for your lunch if you are coming on site early.
