On May 17th, 18th and 19th the Area 5 VOA is hosting the venturing Rendezvous 2013“Back to Medieval Days” You don’t want to miss this one! .
This year we are really venturing back to medieval days by making swords, shields, tunics, Dutch oven desserts and much, much more. Better yet, not only will we be making these objects, but we will be putting them into action when we have sword fights, medieval battles, battle scenarios and even a tournament at the end of the day on Saturday. There will be a medieval dinner, where all participants are encouraged to dress up in medieval costumes, followed by a Dutch oven dessert contest, campfire, movies, puzzles, and a cracker barrel.
Making this event come to life is a master in blacksmithing, and fighting techniques, Joe Pelia. Joe has been in blacksmithing for 33 years and has been involved with medieval reacting for over 31 years. You can see some of Joe's work on page 49 of the book, “Techniques of Medieval Armour Reproduction” by Brian Price.
Joe is also involved in movies. He made armor and weapons that were used in some films, including making all the weapons and armor for the “Legend of Zelda Trailer”. If you are familiar with Zelda, you may know about the Masters Sword.
