A few extra Notes about Harvest Feast.
1. Please remember that if you are bringing Children that are
not legally your own ( I.E- Friend, sister, etc) You will be
required to have a photo copy of the parents license , and
the waiver form filled out in triple. Also a letter stating
you are legally responsible for said child from that child’s
parents. Entry will be refused at the gate if these items
have not been brought.
We welcome children in Bitter End but in previous years we
have noticed a decline in people taking care of the children
they bring to events. Whether these kids are yours or not you
are responsible for there well being and any other behavior
will not be tolerated. You will be given a warning and the
second time you will be asked to leave site.
Please be considerate of all the other people attending this

October, we will advise on this on Friday. Due to the nature
of the fighting that may end up inside the hall there will be
no camping space inside the hall this year.
7. There is plenty of camping space outside but we ask, all
fires to be above ground, the caretakers have kept up the
grass this season and it would be a shame. We also have a new
fire pit at the site, so bardic will commence.
