Lions Gate Next Event ... Lions Gate Heavy and Archery Defenders and Sealion War

Lions Gate Heavy and Archery Defenders
May 10, 2014

Soon the people of Lions Gate will gather at the most historic and hallowed site in the Barony. The Baron and Baroness call all to come witness the tourneys to see who will become the next Defenders of Lions Gate. On the fields of Warner Loat Park heavy fighters, rapier fighters, and archers will vie for the right to stand behind the Baronial seat and defend it from all harm.

The event will take place at Warner Loat Park, (4250 Piper Ave, Burnaby BC) on May 10, 2014. Site fee is only $5 (children 12 and under free), merchants are welcome (no food merchants). There will of course be the Defenders tourneys for Heavy, Rapier and Archery; as well there will be an arts and sciences contest and other activities to be announced later. The arts and sciences contest will be for best medieval camp item.

So plan to come to this event and once more walk the grounds that have seen the choosing of Princes and Kings, heroes named, Sergentry created, and Baronial couples step down and step up.

Site fee is only $5 (children 12 and under free)

Sealion War
May 23, 2014 to May 25, 2014
Sealion (not War) Picnic

Autocrat: Garet Doiron

This just in – Sealion War has been cancelled... but wait, there's more!
The Sealion War has been cancelled due to an outbreak of peace! Festivities are still planned to celebrate this peace. Instead of a war, we will be hosting a picnic! Here now from your undoubted Baron on what has just transpired.

Let it be known that an historic moment has occurred this day. After decades of ineffective and needless bloodshed, His Excellency Eideard, Baron of Seagirt, and I have finally settled the matter and declared an end to the war. From this day forward, the Baronies of Lions Gate and Seagirt are at peace.
This peace shall be complete and unilateral , and shall hold until the world end, or as long as Eideard and I bear these Baronial circlets.

To share in this new era of peace, Her Excellency Caitrina and I have invited the Baron and Baroness of Seagirt, along with Their people to a friendly Sealion summer picnic on the weekend of the 23 - 25 of May. Their Lordships Hucbald and Connall from Seagirt expressed concern that the roads and seas between their Barony and ours are treacherous, and that a sizable force should accompany Their Excellencies. But I'm sure it will all be fine. – Baron Uilliam
