Regional assemblies in medieval Norway

Having searched all through Google, Google Books and Wikipedia (search terms Eidsiva, ting, thing, þing, varþing, etc.), I come here as a last resort hoping someone can clarify a few details.  i know that in medieval Norway (13th-14th century is my time of interest) there were local assemblies (tings) and then also regional ones.  The regional ting I'm interested in is Eidsiva or Eidsvoll.  I know the local thing (or varþing) took place in May.  What I need to know is, what time of the year did the regional ones take place?  I seem to remember reading that it was in the winter, but now that I'm trying to double check this I can't seem to find that information anywhere.  Anyone have any information?  Thanks so much!
