Events/History

This event site was first identified by Ragnar of Ragnarsrock in 1992. The then-Shire of Mooneschadowe held their first event at Will Rogers in 1993. (Mooneschadowe Guardian XIII)

Will Rogers has been in use by the SCA for well over 20 years. It is the frequent site of the Barony of Northkeep for it's spring event, Castellan, and for the Province of Mooneschadowe for its Fall Triumphe event. It was the event site for Ansteorra 40th Year. At least two Crown Tournaments have been held there. Northkeep's Baronial Investiture was held there.

In 2018, an effort to revamp the fort was initiated by members of the Barony of Northkeep.

During COVID, Mooneschadowe hosted Triumphe Eternia, a virtual event with an 'Enhanced Experience' box of goodies that was a fundraiser for Will Rogers.
