Wintersouth – Ynys Fawr’s 30th Birthday
Come test your rattan, blades, arrows and needles in the legendary Ynys Fawr, to celebrate it’s Birthday in deepest Winter. Bear witness as we celebrate the Anniversary of Ynys Fawr’s founding, 30 years since our fair Barony was created in the winter of A.S. XXVIII.
Your endurance will be tested in the almost endless martial Contest, only to rest at day’s end with our bright flickering Hearth and our warm hospitality. Pay heed to our Words, make haste to secure your place at our event. For this will be a Gathering that honours those who have come before, that exalts those that join us in the present, and that will guide our Barony into a Glorious future. Long Live Ynys Fawr!
