Hunter’s Picnic

Hunter’s Picnic
Sunday, June 12, 2022 – CANCELLED due to inclement weather
11:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Wilmington, DE

As Summer spreads it’s warmth and light, so do we spread our picnic blankets in cool glades to gather and make merry for the first time in many years.

Come join us for Caer Adamant’s Hunters Picnic, an idyllic time to see friends, enjoy our homemade feasts, and vie for prizes!!

Our long awaited Shire Champion tournaments will be held for both rapier and rattan!  Bragging rights and prizes will abound. 

(Format for tournaments TBD.)

But you need not bear arms to come home with trophies!  Our pride in a good picnic is greater than the average bear! 

The Shire of Caer Adamant is glad to announce it’s Dayboard Challenge!
As the Shire will not be providing dayboard, we encourage all attendees to bring lunches, snacks, and beverages (this is a wet site!), but for those who want to take it to the next level, you can win honors for the table you spread!

Dayboard Challenge will award prizes for the following categories:
–Most Creative
–Most Period
–Best “Hunter Picnic” (incorporate items that would have been eaten on a hunt or hunter theme accoutrement) 
–Judge’s Choice

Bring your own pop-ups, camp chairs, and tables!

**This Event is Rain or Shine**

Not only will we have the benefit of cool shade trees and the distant sound of sheep, but we will have access to the Historic Mill, for folks who want to teach A&S, gather for guild meetings, or just find a break from the outdoors.

Caer Adamant will be holding a raffle, with ticket proceeds to be donated to the Shire’s resources.  Tickets available at Troll! 

This is a FREE event!  We do require Troll in for both membership and proof of vaccination/negative PCR test.  Donations are always welcome!
