                                                    In Montengarde, Samhain returns

Once again Montengarde hosts Samhain, a time to feast, a time to fight, and a time to choose new champions.

Come and let your voices rise as the new Champion of Bards is elevated to the ranks of Wild Rose of Montengarde.

Come and let your blades sing and challenge the new Champion of Rapier as they become the new Dragonblade of Montengarde.

But wait, there’s more!

          Experience the always popular Baron’s Brawl!

                    There will be an archery tournament.

                                  There will be Arts & Sciences and Youth Activities.

And of course, when all is said and done: A succulent feast of foods from around the Knowne World prepared by Baron James.

For those wishing to participate in Archery, the Barony of Montengarde will be covering your range fees.

(Archery will take place at the Calgary Archery Centre4855 47 St. SE​, Calgary)

Lunch Will Happen… We’re Just Not Sure How Yet!

At this time, nobody has stepped forward to offer to run the Lunch Counter.

This is a great opportunity to fund raise for your Special Interest Group and the Feast Team will will ensure that reasonable cooking space is made available to you during the morning prior to Lunch.

If nobody has vounteered by October Council (Wednesday 10/15) then James Douglas and Team will prepare and serve lunch and donate any proceeds raised to the “Buy New Serving Dishes For Montengarde” project that was featured at September Tavern.
