As the cold
grip of winter slips from the lands, the College of
Lyonsmarche, Lentil Capital of the Knowne World, inventories
yet another year of excellent crops. Yet jealous eyes from
nearby lands take note. Baron Wastekeep
plans to lead a military expedition to claim what He feels is
rightfully His, including back taxes and
Friendly forces, lead by Baron Wealdsmere,
assemble from the north, east and south to free the College
of invading tyranny. Even Mighty King
Vik and Gracious Queen Inga
come from Their
northern bastion
to see this matter


friendly folks of Lyonsmarche invite you to the first An Tir
Inlands camping war of the season.  Get your SCA year

Valonge of Wyewood who are both Sr TAM will be holding a Jr
TAM class.

NOTE: Lentil dishes baked or otherwise can be prepared at

field. Saturday evening there will be plenty of wood
pallettes to burn.


NEW: There will be a
Heraldy Consulting pavillion next to the A&S

and is not civilized for the SCA.  Dogs need to be

lentils from the various store houses scattered about the
College of Lyonsmarche.  But be warned, getting the
lentils is only half the challenge, one must also bring them

the fine rapier fighters of An Tir will wage their own
battles to determine the fate of our prized legumes!


After a good
day of fighting, what could be better than some home cooked
lentils, gleaned from the field of glory, to be chased down
with some fine home brewed spirits.  Join your brothers and
sisters in arms over the fruits of our conflict, and help
determine the Lentil Cooking and Home Brewing Champions of

There are 8
cabins at Hells Gate. The 4 cabins nearest Honor War are
located between the B & C camp loop are Locust, Sycamore,
Maple, and Pondersa (closest to the C-loop).  The 3 cabins between the A
& B loop are Sacajewea, Lewis and Clark (closest to the
B-loop) and the furthest cabin in the middle of the A-loop is
Tammany. If you end up in one of these distant cabins, then
you will want to drive back and forth between these distant
cabins and Honor War in the C-loop.  Note: as of the
week before Honor War, there was only one cabin left
unreserved for the weekend. 


PARKING: will be the same as last year. We would
like to reserve parking near the C-loop out in the field for
those with medical conditions, disablitiies, or smalls
using car seats.  We will provide a minivan at our SCA
Gate that will shuttle vehicles to the outer non-fee parking
lot once you have unloaded at your camp site.  If you
really, really want your car close by while camping this
weekend, then parking will be $5.32 extra per night ($5 +
tax).   Those arriving after dark on Friday night
can move their dragons out of camp on Saturday
