Additional Information

If you have a banner, flag or shield that you would like to display on the fences that surround the Fort green PLEASE do it!! Having such things really do help the ambience.

Thanks to Lord Eoin an Doire we will have Gold Key clothing at Gate! For those of you with newcomers please feel free to take what you need, although I would suggest that you bring your own belts!

Frouva Hrefna of Wyndriche will be running a paper form gate rather than the electronic system we have been using. For the best Trolling experience please have your Blue membership card ready, and to steal a phrase; correct change is always awesome!

For fencing and all kinds of such fun, Lord Radbod will be your MIC and general shenanigan creator. For Rattan your MIC will be Lord Gryffyd Abernathy and our own Baron Ane du Vey. For Youth Combat Activities Lord Thomas de Marr will be Head Velociraptor hearder.

Meisterin Agatha Wanderer will be your contact point for the Baronial A+S Championships, with Lady Olalla Tristana will be looking after those who are entering the Populace Choice display. Visit the page dedicated to this championship and A&S populace choice display for more information.

As we are a bloodthirsty bunch, we are also honoured to have the Guild of Chirurgeons present! Lady Admiranda Howard and Lord Radbod will be present to apply Band Aids!

During the day we will have an open fire in the Tavern, Lord Ragnar and his Lady have volunteered to manage the area. If you wish, we are accepting donations of LOCAL sourced firewood, one or two chunks would make the supply for the day stretch longer.

We have no dayboard, so please plan accordingly. Water will be available in the rest room for drinking and we will have orange coolers inside the Fort.

Parking will be in the site parking lot.

A quick glance at the weather forecast shows mid fifties and a chance of rain showers. As the Fort tends to be cool the autocrat would recommend layers and an extra blanket!
