Event details
The Fiery Beast has returned and is even more fiery-er (is that a word?) than ever!  But this time, there are rogue bands of Lilliputians on the war path!  They want …  something? Anything? Roast Beast and Free Stuff? Maybe!

The forces of the Dark Lawd Smokey are miffed at the forces of Grand Daddy Boo and the forces of Grand Daddy Boo are gruntled at the forces of the Dark Lawd Smokey …  And both have brought forth their siege weapons of mini-destruction to lay waste to their gruntled and miffed opposition!

We will be featuring:

o Heavy Weapons Lists!  Fight for or against the Lilliputians!
o Rapier and Heavy Viking Longship Battles!
o Castle Siege (But it’s only a model..  Shhh!) with Weapons of Mini-Destruction!
o A Beast Feast roasted over the open flame!
o The Fire Sale Swap!
o Mini boat races!  Choose the side you want to race for!
o Catapult construction contest…  Seneschals, look to your mail boxes in the next few weeks…
o More Activities for the young Lords and Ladies!
o And much much more!

And if you wish:
Display your talents on our A&S table!
Shower us with song!
Make merry with music!
