Winter War Assessment
February 25th-27th, 2005
Barony of Marinus

The Sargent of Saint Aiden and the Barony of Marinus bring you another opportunity to bash each other and edge your skills. Ya, you betcha, lets get together for a day of melee for the Heavies, fencers, archers, and siege engineers. Focus will be on two scenarios unique to Gulf Wars; The Castle and The Rift. We will start at 11am with the Heavies assaulting the castle, while the fencers play in the woods. After the lunch break we would then switch venues. At the end of the day, time permitting, the heavies and fencers will take turns running open field melees. Each community will take part in critiquing and coaching each other.

Feast will be a very simple below the salt field mess, hot drinks will be provided through out the day. If you are staying Saturday night we will be having classes on cold weather camping. Diet restrictions to the autocrat please.

Coming south on Route 10: About 3 miles after passing through the town of Cabin Point, you will see a sign for IdleWild Camp on the left hand side of the road. The entrance for SkyAnchor is on the right side of the road at that sign. Turn right into the entrance. Go about 1/10th of a mile and make a right. Follow the dirt road around to the main building and Troll. (Signs will be posted.)

Coming North on Route 10: Make your best way to the intersection of Hwys 10 and 31 in Surry. Follow Hwy 10 as it takes a left turn in Surry at the yellow flashing light, and becomes Hwy 10/31.
