The Shire of Dismal Fogs Presents:


Rumours abound of a mysterious Panther that roams the borders of the Shire of Dismal Fogs. 

Some say that it is escaped from a travelling circus.
Some say that traders from the east were shipwrecked on the shores of Lake Wallace and that their
dangerous cargo escaped. Some allege that it can be seen but once a year, at Maranatha in the
West of the Shire of Dismal Fogs.

This year, it is prophesied to appear on the weekend of Friday evening of the 30th May
through to Sunday afternoon, 1st of June.

Come join us as we hunt the Panther and its cohort of beastly acquaintances from the realm!

Fully catered event, with cabin accommodation for 60 and camping for as many as will.
There will be archery, A&S, period games, a tourney and a feast to celebrate the weekend’s hunting.
