Special Events

We have some very cool Special Events happening at GWW this year including
an open Middle Eastern Drum and Dance Circle, hosted by Her Grace Faizeh
(more details forthcoming), and The annual Taste of Caid for those who want
to sample the creations of our most talented brewers.

Other Special Events include:

The Open Arms Bardic Hall which will host performances by the most gifted
and talented singers, storytellers, musicians, dancers, entertainers and
bards of the Knowne World.  Come and listen to stories told of dragons and
magic. Marvel at the beauty of a dance or a haunting song of love.  Clap
your hands and sing loudly to a familiar tune.  Enjoy an afternoon filled
with mirth, courtly love and tales of lore.  There will be a rehearsal for
the Caid Choir and a performance as well.  Performers are welcome to sign up
here and perform, too.

There will be a Page School for slightly older children, and we are hoping
to have the Wool to Whatever contest this year.

A Hammer-In will also be taking place, and we are working on getting some
meet and greets together for various groups.

And more to be announced in the coming months!

Rapier Combat

Hound Coursing

"Known as the "Queen's Sport," hound coursing was enjoyed throughout the
middle ages by royalty and nobles alike. People would follow the hunt on
horseback or watch from the ground, cheering on their favorite hounds as
they darted and dashed in pursuit of the hare.
