Bacchus is known among men as the god of wine and revelry. Sheltered in the mountains of Black Diamond, we host Bacchus in all his glory as we revel in good wine, good company, and good competition on the field. 

Bacchus wields a staff which can grant blessings upon his followers or can be used to smite those who defy him. In his honor, we host a pole arm tourney in combination with a Bedford points tourney for the armored fights. Tourney winners will continue on as the captains of the melee. 

Following all of the above scenarios there will be a five-man, unbelt tourney. So create your teams and come ready to take the field against other teams of your peers. Don't have a team but want to take part in this, don't worry. While fought as a tourney format this is, above all, a chance to build teams of people/weapons combinations that work best together. 

Our rapier contingent will be pleased to find plenty of opportunities as well. There is a Bedford Points Tourney, a Warlord Tourney, and, for those who want even more fighting, a ruins battle planned for the day.

Let us not forget target archery! There will be an archery range with plenty of themed targets just begging to be shot full of holes. 

The gem of our celebration will be our Tavern. Libations will be provided by some of our local winery merchants. Tastings and bottles may be purchased at the Tavern.  DISCLAIMER: Libations purchased at this event can be purchased independently through local winery merchants and are not provided by the SCA or the event staff.Confirmed Wineries are:  Lazy Days Winery (www.lazydayswinery.com/) and  White Oak Mountain Meadery (www.whiteoakmead.com)
