The Summer Wandering Game (Dumfries)

This day has been made possible through Festival of Museums Funding. FOM16

As a community group (The Vikings) there are two main ways for us to win word fame on Saturday:

Of course you are all volunteers, so the day should be enjoyable for you too!

There will be a chance to fight, feast (a bit), and if you find yourself outside a museum, with no team to look, after remember that at least you are not stuck in a field miles from the general public complaining that the sponser didn't advertise the event properly. The settlements are on the high street and in parks so we are going to the general public. Also, there will always be reinforcements on the way, Sometimes bringing food.

If you have a chance to prepare before the day:

You can help the teams get into the feel for the location they are based in. As a Viking though, you are one of the warrior class who travel the world and have a wider perspective on life. (Unless someone gives you enough silver to take a local interest at the battle at the end of time...)
