Spring Feast


MARCH 28, 2020


Greetings all! Spring is coming on fast and with that comes time for great joy and….you guessed it….a FEAST! 6the Barony of Sentinel’s Keep will hold Spring Feast on March 28, 2020, just a short drive south of Missoula. We have several fun activities planned. Intrigued? Read on!

A&S Championship! – A must! We will have our A&S Championship at this event. Any may enter but only someone residing in the state of Montana can be declared Champion. But if you are from outside Montana, don’t let that stop you! You can still win Renown among your peers! (and of course, there are prizes).


On March 28, 2020, the Barony of Sentinels’ Keep will host our annual Arts and Sciences competition. We encourage you all to participate, either as competitors or as judges.

The Rules: Those vying for Baronial A&S Champion must submit three (3) entries in at least two (2) different grand categories. Documentation is required but may consist of a minimum of a half-sheet of 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper, 12-point Times New Roman, 1/2″ margins, single spaced, and clearly identified with the project and the artist’s name. Research papers are due by 28FEB2020.

If you have any questions, or you are presenting a research paper, please contact me at bskmoas@gmail.com.

More information on our A&S Competition and activities is available on our Facebook A&S Page https://www.facebook.com/groups/1038855289787481/

Combat Tourneys! It wouldn’t be a northern event without some interesting fighting! Both Rapier and Armored tournaments will be held for your enjoyment!

Feast! Feast this year will be a potluck! Please bring 1 dish per adult. Alternatively you may pay $15 per person ($5 for children under 18) if you choose not to bring a dish. A reservation list will be available on the Facebook Event page and all reservations are due by March 20, 2020 at 5 pm.

Bardic Champion! We will be hosting our Bardic Competition as well! Details to follow, so watch here and our Baronial Facebook Event (https://www.facebook.com/events/442174296474745/) for details!

Baronial Auction! Do you have an odd project lying around? Some stuff from a long-departed persona? Perhaps your last set of feast gear that no longer meets your needs? Then have no fear, the Barony will happily take it off your hands and auction it off to help fund the dream!
Feeling like showing off your talents? We will welcome any works you might produce and want to gift to the Barony for auction – please make sure to give us a description and your name so that all may hear of your talents!
So stick around for the auction that we might lighten your purse a bit!

Merchants! Merchants are welcome but we will limit inside space to 4 merchants, each receiving 1 table space. Merchants may opt to set up outside but the weather may not cooperate, so be warned (we do live in Montana after all!). There is no merchanting fee, but a largess donation to Their Excellencies or to the Auction would be most appreciated! Merchants wanting indoor space must email rapierfighter@hotmail.com and tables will be allocated in order as received via email. You will receive an email response. Facebook inquiries will not be counted.  As of 01/15/2020, there is only one indoor merchant table left!

Site opens at 9 am and closes by 10 pm.

Registration: Adult Event Registration will be $15
