Come join the Barony of the Westermark at the annual Westermark Madness on Sunday, 22 October 2023 at the San Francisco Archery Range in Pacifica, CA. This year’s merriment includes Heavy and Rapier fighting as well as Archery, A&S classes, fun, and a potluck feast. Gate opens at 9:00 am and the site closes at 6:30 pm (~sunset). More detailed information can be found on the Westermark Madness 2023 Website.
LOTS of fun for everyone! Chivalric combatants, challenge your friends to become the next Thug or Shepherd, or maybe you want to team up with a comrade in arms and try your hand as a two headed troll. Lots of Rapier scenarios will be held too, for the opportunity to be the next Sharp of the Westermark. Archers can enjoy some novelty shoots and other shoots to find the Hood of the Westermark! Artists can have fun with the pumpkin carving competition and enjoy our A&S class taking place.
From our Arts & Sciences Officer, Mistress Sabrina de la Bere:
As promised I will be teaching a needlelace intro class (8 stitches – 7 of the stitches are used in embroidery as well as lace) at Westermark Madness on Oct 22 (Sunday). Location is Pacifica. Pre-reg will be appreciated. Materials cost of $10. Maximum 8 students. Please RSVP to this notice to save your slot.
There will be a potluck-style early dinner that will take place after the tournaments and court concludes. If you are able, please bring a side dish or dessert to share, large enough to serve 4 to 8 persons and the Barony will provide the main course. Please make an ingredients list available for those with food allergies. The Barony will provide shredded chicken, pulled pork, and roast beef as prepared by our own Baroness Alistair!
Please try to carpool as there is limited parking. We want many people to come, so join the day trip together! Bring sun shades, chairs, and tables.
Bring your own potable water – no water on site. Porta-potty will be available (We are not that heathenish)
