[Sept. 2022] Crown Province of Østgarðr Investiture at the Feast of John Barleycorn

Good gentles all, a celebration of epic proportions awaits all who attend the Crown Province of Østgarðr Investiture at the Feast of John Barleycorn! We celebrate the arrival of our Florentine Heirs, Sofya Gianetta di Trieste and Angelica di Nova Lipa, as they take their place as our New Viceregents and bid fond farewells to Il-Kha’an Sudder Saran and IL-Khatun Lada Monguligin.

In addition to the Viceregal investiture ceremonies and festivities, Barleycorn attendees can enjoy a wide variety of tournaments and activities including multiple heavy weapons and fencing tournaments, youth fighting, an archery novelty tournament, a thrown weapons tournament, youth activities and the John Barleycorn Memorial brewing competition. On Sunday, the Crown Province will host Fight for a Cause, a combined fighting & fencing tournament to help raise funds for a charity of the winners’ choosing.

**Important message  regarding fire restrictions**

     As you are aware most of the country is going through severe weather conditions. Our area is no exception.  Due to severe drought in Putnam County, our event site, a county park, has prohibited all open or shielded flames, including candles, lamps, or lanterns for light or heat, individual camp fires, or any wood, propane, coal or other burning matter based cooking or camp stoves, grills, or hibachi…. And, yes, this includes peat and dried dung.   

     We regret that these cherished options are not available to us during this very dry time. To provide some level of comfort, we will have coffee urns and hot water for beverages available each day until 10 PM Friday, Saturday and Sunday along with snacks for those camping. We are also adding locations of local grocery stores to the event website, and will have menus available for restaurants that deliver for those not prepared with adequate provisions for evening and morning meals. 

     The good news is that we are permitted one designated centrally located grand campfire, and hope that you will gather around its warmth and light prepared to share your music and stories. 

     As with any rural treed campsite, we share it with local wildlife, so please avoid inviting Raccoons, Coyotes (yes, real Coyotes!), and Skunks (otherwise known as Camp Kitties) to your meals….and your trash stash.   Please promptly remove trash to the provided dumpster, and secure all edibles to closed (as in tightly sealed box or cooler, not a closed plastic bag) storage….the alternatives could, with animal intervention, be messy, smelly, and downright medieval.
