Welcome to Egil's XL!

The Egil Skallagrimson Memorial Tournament returns for its 40th year!

Welcome to Egilís XL, and for our 40th anniversary we promise that this year will be extra-large. Our goal this year is to bring you the most popular elements and activities from the last 40 years and a few new items for the future. We have competitions for fighting, archery, throwing, artistry, games, and even service. We have displays and demonstrations to enjoy in artisanís village and on the main field. We have pageantry of court. And finally this year special we have the 40th Anniversary Celebration, where we are inviting everyone to gather Saturday night at the main field to join us for food, entertainment and fellowship.

So please, come in and explore. We will be filling in descriptions of all the activities over the next few weeks.


There will be a small change in how land reservations will be handled this year, particularly for group encampments. In order to reserve a group/household camping space, a land agent for each group needs to contact the Egils Land Coordinator no later than May 4th and supply the name of the group, the expected number of campers in the group, an estimate of the number of tents, if you would prefer quiet or standard camping, if space is being requested for anything special (ships, structures, large open areas for parties, etc), and if your group has a traditional camping location. Please be as accurate as possible with your estimates.

Individual campers will be assigned a camping space as they arrive in either the quiet or standard open camping areas.

To reserve group camping, please contact Dietrich the Jonger
