      Shire Wars IX: The Battle of Kulikova

      Shire Wars returns with the Battle of Kulikova (September 8, 1380) between the Mongol Golden Horde and the Russian princes led by Prince Dmitry of Moscow.  Attendees get to choose to be Russian or Mongol with points for various activities.

      Before the main battle, there was a Champions' Battle.  Both champions died!  We're hoping for a better result in our Champions' Battle.  We invite each shire and barony in the Western (part of the Southern) Region (Pennsylvania and Delaware) to select a champion to participate.  For bragging rights, of course.  There'll be opportunities for group and melee combat as well.

      We also have rapier combat and archery and thrown weapons competition.  There will be a youth combat tourney, as well.

      And a VERY different form of combat:  Mongol Helga Ball.  Details later.

      We're planning on a special exhibit of Russian icons and a general A&S exhibition.  So come show what you've been working on.  We're planning on some classes, too.  And there will be activities for children, too.

      There will be an auction, too, but we're still working on the details.

      There's space for a few merchant tents/booths just outside the main hall, as well as merchant space inside.  Contact Lady Dara Bailey at for information.

      We're going to have breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday, as well as a day board.  The feast will be under the direction of Mistresss Tirza bithe Reaboughes.

      There will also be meetings to discuss the proposed Western Region and Shire Wars 2021.
