Border Skirmish VII is just over the horizon as the lovely Simmons Island Park
in Kenosha will once again be opening its arms (and border) to travelers
spanning across the great Kingdom of Northshield and of the Middle Kingdom,
coming to battle it out on the border! This is the same place we enjoyed last
year, and this year will be just as fun if not more so!! Oh yeah!
There is much to see and do at Border Skirmish, and this year there are many fun
things planned for all to enjoy! There will be fighting, an artisan's row, a
woodworking competition, a period sand-castle (or maybe that should be
"sand-period-castle") team competition on the beach, fighting, interesting
classes, bardic circle, fighting, shopping, archery, ... oh, and did I mention
fighting??! (Yeah!, LOTS of fighting for both the armored and unarmored
There will also be a period encampment this year (yay) and a demo provided on
Saturday for the local public can come and see why we love doing the crazy
things we do, in funny clothes, and ... in public!
