Hey, for all of you who're looking for an event with lots of fighting, lots of roleplay, large battles, questing through the woods, and an amazing time, the last weekend in august we will be having Knoblander, one of the best events in Amtgard, and in my opinion any boffer game. Gate opens at noon fridya with ditching until lay on at 8pm friday night and goes till about 2pm the Saturday afternoon. There will be armies, a castle battle, mosters, quests, rewards, and shops. If you're worried about halloween, there's plenty of time to get home sunday in time for parties and such. I just went and walked the event site which is a boy scout camp in Waterloo, IL and it's freakin sweet. If anyone is interested and has any questions just let me know, I promise you won't walk away dissapointed.
