One and all are invited to attend the Barony of Settmour Swamp's 28th annual Celebration of the Thawing of the Mud. As always Mudthaw will feature a wide variety of activities: tournaments in Armored Combat, Rapier, and Youth Combat, Archery, Thrown Weapons, a brewing competition and an array of Fine Merchants. Mudthaw will again be held at the beautiful and spacious Salaam Shrine in Livingston, NJ.

NOTE: All combatants must troll in before they can sign up for any lists. There will be an express check-in available on the field for combatants who pre-register. Reserve ahead and avoid the morning lines at troll.

Their Majesties have declared that a grand Arts and Science competition will be held during Mudthaw to determine Their Arts and Science Champions. They wish to extend an invitation for all artisans in the Kingdom to come and show off their best work, and compete for the honor of representing Their Majesties as one of the Kingdom's Champions of the Arts and Sciences.

Dayboard will be provided by Asa in Svarta, and in the evening a fine feast prepared by Riordan a'Bheithir and Quinn a'Bheithir will be served.
