The Heavies and Rapier
area
will be in the fenced arena this year. This offers
plenty of seating for the spectators and we will provide some
shade. Combatant’s day shades will be allowed inside the arena on
the Eastside.

yourself as a competitor at the appropriate lists

is an open theme and will be judged by
the populace. Everyone is welcome.

permitted providing they are up off the ground 18 inches. Charcoal,
SEASONED WOOD, presto logs are allowed. Spark screens are a good
idea. Fire extinguishers supplies must be within reach.

pets.

Parents are expected  to monitor/ supervise their children

There is a large dumpster for garbage by the front gate. Please
police your site for trash.

There will be NO York
Rounds
due to the continuing Safety issue of distance versus

Sunday to practice honing your archery skills.

There has been some rearranging of the site for activities. Some
of the camping space has been shifted to provide Royal encampment
area. The Thrown Weapons Range has also been moved down close to
