Vinfest X is coming! The Shire of Vinjar is having its annual celebration of the grape on September 26 to 28, 2008 at Camp Tamarack, south of Grande Prairie, Alberta. Tournaments of Rapier, Heavy and Archery (Both combat and target) will be held. For those less warlike, an Arts and Sciences competition will also take place and new for this year there is a very sought-after prize encouraging all artisans of Avacal to compete; one of Deicyn Moel’s World Famous crossbows!!!
