2017 Mountain Edge Defender's Tourney

March 25th, 2017

Thanks to all that attended our 2017 Defender's Tourney!

Are you a fighter?  The Shire of Mountain Edge welcomes all to our 13th Defenders Tourney where there will be competition to choose our heavy armored combat and rapier Defenders.

Please contact Sora the Broken Hearted in advance if you plan to compete.  This is not required but will make it easier for the current Defenders to design this year’s fighting scenarios.

DIRECTIONS

 

From the North: Take 99W through Newberg towards McMinnville. Turn left onto Highway 18. After passing the 99W exit, turn left onto Durham Lane. The Heritage Center is on the right. (It is on the corner of Durham Lane and Highway 18 – Three big buildings with rusting farm equipment out front.)

From the South:  Take 99W towards McMinnville turn left on Durham Lane (if you get to the city proper you have gone too far.) Go down Durham Lane until you see the Heritage Center on the left. (If you get to Highway 18 you have just passed it).

We are in the Activities Building – the one straight back from the entrance. Look for a banner on the entrance door.
