Description

In the autumn, when the leaves are beginning to turn and the summer horns of war are but a distant memory, The Kingdom of Acre bids you to pick up your arms, pack your tents and join us on Crusade!!

The journey and battle to protect the piece of the True Cross continues…

The Kingdom of Acre invite all to a weekend of heavy and rapier battles, archery, and arts and sciences (classes and a display are planned) at the beautiful Camp Cedarcrest. Tent camping is available for all and there is limited cabin space.

The weekend activities will:

  • Prove the mettle of fighters who will select Templar, Hospitaller or Byzantine roles in Acre’s “infamous” 3-hour resurrection battle with combat archery (see full scenario).
  • Test the targeting ability of archers who will also choose their respective army.
  • Hone the blade skills of rapier fighters.
  • Provide opportunity to all to learn new skills and to display their handcrafts.

After the days martial and arts activities are ended, a feast prepared by the Kingdom’s finest cooks will provided. After dinner, an amphitheater with a huge fire pit is available to showcase bardic performances or stories of battles past…
