Baronial Champs

May 24, 2019 @ 12:00 pm – May 27, 2019 @ 12:00 pm


Avast and take heed! The Pirates of Three Swans have invaded the Barony of Thescorre and are taking over the Baronial Championship competition! Put on ye long clothes, don ye best cutlass and blunderbuss, and come join the ruckus at Schloss von Tannenacker, located at 6385 N Lake Rd, Bergen NY 14416. The main event will be Saturday May 25th 2019, from 9am into the evening, but the camping will be from Friday 24th noon to Monday 27th noon.  Autocrat is Captain Lady Nicole du Marais (Nikki Kellogg), PO Box 127, Bergen NY 14416, Email Autocrat, 585-300-7319.

Our dutiful champs have served our Industrious Barony well, and as be our tradition, must once again defend their station against newcomers. Privateers from other baronies be welcome to compete as we will have a non-Baronial Champ award as well.  BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! The Barony of the Rhydderich Hael will be joining us! Competitions for both Baronies include: Heavy Weapons, Youth Combat, Rapier, Archery, Thrown Weapons, Arts & Science, and Bardic. Activities and games will be available for the wee pirates (with parental supervision).  Awards will be announced in the afternoon Court on Saturday.

Stave off ye scurvy! Dinner being served by the Three Swans will only have 75 dinners available (no lunch being provided). Smoked pork shoulder, salt potatoes, various salads, rolls, and other munchies. Dietary concerns should be directed toward our cook, Richard of the Swamp (Rich Kellogg), Email Cook.

Merchants welcome! Please contact our Governor, Lord Wassouf Ibn Saleem (Joseph Chakalis) Email Merchant Coordinator. Compensation to vend for the whole shore leave be $10. We will also have a yard sale/ fund raiser, so if ye have anything that ye would like to be rid of and donate, contact Lord Wassouf as well. We’d be happy to take in garb, fest gear, camping gear, toys or games for children, or any other medieval or piratey items. Bring plenty of doubloons!

Property will have two porticastles (one handicap accessible), one flushy, and a shower. Designated fire pits will be provided, and pre-approved cooking grills/fires. Site is discretely damp during the day, “swampy” at dinnertime with plenty of mead, rum, and grog. Bread oven and gas grill available for cooking. Limited handicap parking.

Furl the sails and drop anchor at the Castle in the Swamp. Directions from the South: Take your best route to the Bergen exit off I-490 (west of the city). Take exit 2 and proceed onto NY-33A/33 going West, then at the junction of NY-33 and NY-19, turn right, on NY-19 N. The event is about 2.2 miles from the intersection (Google GPS will point a little past our driveway). There will be a large stone wall and gate on your right, directly across the street from the Bergen Rod and Gun Club. You will not be able to see any buildings from the road.

Directions from the North: From the junction of Rt-31 and Rt-19 in Brockport, head South toward Bergen, and travel about 6.6 miles from the junction. The property will be on the left side, shortly after you cross over Black Creek. There will be a large stone wall and gate on your left with no buildings in site, directly across the street from the Bergen Rod and Gun Club.
