Bears Event

Saturday, February 25th 9am-7pm 

Lo the bears be hiding deep in their winter's cave. We must be vigilant of the scourge far to the south. So let us set a course to the Northwest corner of Glorious Æthelmearc. Where here the Shire of Stormsport will once again host the pit to test your prowess. In the past the skull splitter has proven him self to be bear enough to win the pit, so come see if you be bear enough.

Come join us at Trinity United Methodist Church (3952 Pine Ave Erie, PA). The doors open at 9am and close at 7pm. The site is dry as a bone, no open flame, no pets, smoking in personal vehicles only. Marshal activities of all kinds, and like always, the bear pit.

A hardy all day sideboard will be provided by the Lady Christina Buttermann.

The cost of the day will be $7 for adults, $3 for children (12-18), children 12 and under are free. The non-member surcharge (NMS) of $5 applies to all adults without proof of membership the day of the event. Autocrat is Lord Lorenz Butterman.

Æthelmearc's equestrian community will be conducting a 50/50 raffle at the Bears event. All proceeds will be used to help defray fuel costs for equestrians traveling to the annual Kingdom Equestrian Championship and only this event. The Equestrian Championship rotates back and forth from the west and east side of the Kingdom each year. Thanks for supporting Æthelmearc's equestrian community.
