Have you made it to NRW yet? Then you know this is NOT the event to miss! And don’t forget to bring a friend! Have the fates been cruel to you in the past and keep you from NRW? Ask around… this is where you want to be! NRW is proclaimed by the masses as, “How the SCA was meant to be!” If you are bold of heart, strong in spirit, and thirst for the revelry of the North-men, then you belong at NRW IV.
Oh, and did we mention that this is the home of The Best Tavern in the Knowne Worlde: The Snowdragon Inn. And if that doesn’t get your heart racing, how about many of the activities you may want to take part in, such as: Heavy and Rapier Fighting and Cut and Thrust. Then of course there will be both Archery and Thrown Weapons as well as an A&S competition and displays. Fabulous shopping through our Merchants Lively night life Kids activities and even a Blacksmith on site ***AND this year we are glad to announce that we will be adding Equestrian Events to our already full of fun event*** Start packing your gear and making plans for one of the most memorable events this side of the Knowne Worlde. We can’t wait to see you there!
