Accessibility Information

Bathrooms:

There are two sets of public bathrooms with accessible stalls: one on the main event level on the east side between the barns and youth activities and the second in the President’s Hall.

Accessible port-a-potties and hand-washing stations are throughout the site.

Golf Carts:

Golf carts with mapped stops and some seating are distributed throughout the site and those who need to be delivered to an on-site location rather than a stop will be able to do so.

Mobility access:

The main event site paths are paved but there are three slopes around the site.

The first is a relatively short hill between the camping and the main level of the site; this is not paved, although it is generally well-packed. This can be avoided by going to Gordon Field Parking and walking along the fence in the lot or by catching a golf cart.

The second is to the Boand arena; a steep paved path descends from the upper level. Golf carts are available to take you through parking.

The third hill is fairly steep and goes from the food merchant area near the President’s Hall to the Pavilion parking. A walking path just to the south is available for those who want a less steep path.

Quiet Space

The ‘Chillvilion’ will be available for a quiet space with fidgets and seating. Signage pointing to it will be throughout the event, and it will be located on the site map.

Parking:

Designated parking will be available in both Gordon Field Parking (SCA Camping and day trip until full) as well as the Pavilion Parking Lot (SCA and Modern attendees)

Service Animals:

Service animals are allowed in all public spaces, including the President’s Hall.

For additional questions, please reach out to our EDIB Officer, HL Jessy Gateman

Archery

The Archery Championship will consist of a number of SSAC shoots with a twist. Each twist is to be announced at the time of the shoot. The top 2 (or 3, B&B’s choice) will continue to the Q&A portion.

Armored (Heavy)

This will be a gladiatorial bear pit “hold the field” styled tournament. Participants will draw a weapon style from a card before entering the list. The weapon styles will be based on historical gladiator weapons styles within the permitted SCA weapons conventions. Every time a participant dies they will be required to pick a new card and re-enter with their new weapon. In the list field at 6 and 12 there will be a fighter attached to a post by a rope these are going to represent lions and they will be armed with two swords. So there will be three opponents in the list at one time, you can choose to ignore the lions or fight the lions but only your actual opponent counts for points. The two fighters with the highest points will go on to the interview with their excellencies.

Rapier

Rapier will be a double round robin (If more than 6 participants will change format to single round robin.)

Finals top 2 for best 3 of 5.
