Come once again to the beautiful, temperate coastlands and the epic war between the mighty Kingdoms of An Tir and the West. There will be battles, both heavy and rapier. There will be Arts and Sciences, rapier and archery, equestrian activities galore–and of course there will be fine merchants.
This year, Grand Court is hosted by the Kingdom of the West!
Site OPENS for Merchants on June 29th at NOON. Site opens on June 30th at NOON for the general populace.
Only those who have coordinated with site setup leads and the volunteer coordinator will be let on site early.
First, War has officially been extended through July 5th! Calendars are still being updated but as of today, War will run June 30th through July 5th, 2022 for the general populace! To cover the additional cost of another day of showers and biffies, site fee needed to be slightly increased to $60 at pre-reg and $65 at gate($55 and $60 respectively with the SCA member discount).
Second, Pre-registration is now OPEN! This year all registration types are filtered through the same pre-registration form, including standard attendees, merchants, RVs/Trailers, or Equestrians. The other significant change this year is land allotment for registered group camping will be tied to pre-registration numbers. Please see the War website and the pre-registration form for details. Encourage your group member to register early to maximize your groups allotment!

Calling ALL Fighters!
Take up your arms for a day of melees and tournaments in the arts of WAR! Timed right in between Pennsic and Great Western War, in order to serve as the perfect opportunity to keep your melee and tourney skills honed!
Tournaments will be run by the ever-talented Meister Dustin Thorn, as at events past. They will kick off with the all–may–enter, with a bear-pit running concurrent to the all-may-enter starting after the first elimination round. The combined armored/unarmored duo tournament will return. A capture-the-flag melee with rubber band guns will occur after the traditional post-lunch group photo and a Cut-and-Thrust tournament will end the day’s fighting. Don’t be surprised if there’s a few twists thrown in for these too!
There will be an Arts & Sciences competition decided by populace vote. All entries welcome, including unfinished objects, documentation is always welcome but not required.
We have secured the same great location as in past years and are keeping the gate fees the same as well so come one and all to this event which is unparalleled in the West!

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 some of our A&S classes taking place.
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)
