Greetings unto the People of the East Kingdom as well as our nearby cousins in Atlantia. Again, the Barony of Carillion calls forth for those who would be Champions! As we present Ghost, Ghouls and Goblins, this event will host the Barony's Championship competitions for those who would stand for Our Baroness in matters of Archery, Fencing, Thrown Weapons, Fighting, A&S, and Bardic.
Archery - Master Rupert the Unbalanced is maniacally devising a new novelty shoot to challenge every Archer who dares it on a new and easier to manage shooting trail. So come try yourself againt this new challenge or even ealk the shoot to enjoy the artistry of the targets, especially the night shoot! This activity will begin early in the event(start time to be updated soon). This shoot is usually several hours, it is recommended to come early to ensure enough time.
There will be a night woods walk shoot which will begin 30 minutes after feast, weather permitting, this is even better then shooting pumpkins in the dark!! Night shoot will take about an hour to complete. Protect the Barony from things that lurk in the darkness!

The theme for the Autocrat's challenge is Webs of SCA Wonder, so imagine how you can use a craft to tie together your favorite SCA things. And there will also be a people's choice competition.
Bards - Come raise the spirits in song, tale or musical composition as we celebrate the harvest and the gathering of warmth as friends to fend off the coming winter's chill.
