My lords and ladies, pray attend!
The Shire of HauksgarÃƒï¿½Ã¯Â¿Â½Ãƒï¿½Ã‚Â°r invites you to join us for a
relaxing day at our 12th annual August in the Park event. Share in
a potluck feast, fight in the tournament, or just relax in the
shade of the big trees if that’s your preference!.
Fees: There is no gate fee…yes, it’s free!
We will be holding our Heavy Defender’s Tourney to select the
Shield of HauksgrÃƒï¿½Ã¯Â¿Â½Ãƒï¿½Ã‚Â°r. All comers are welcome to attempt to
become our defender.
Potluck: Bring your favorite dish to share. We don’t have the
shelter this year, so no crockpots or anything that requires power.
(You can bring a grill if you wish) Please remember that some
people have food allergies so please label with your ingredients.
Bring enough food to feed 10 people or more. Bring your own feast
gear and drinks.
Cascade Locks has a small grocery and several restaurants if you
need food, drinks or snacks for the day. There is a burger
stand/ice cream stop and also a brew pub within easy walking
