Event details
Once again, TO ARMS because, once again, we get to decide who shall prevail once and for all (until next year) at the War of Roses, the passionate red of Lancaster or the pure white of York.

Battle shall be fought on the Heavy and Rapier fields, accuracy and acumen displayed by Archers, Siege, and thrown weapons, grace and dignity by dancers, wit by Bards, skill and insight by artisans, brilliance by brewers, and enthusiasm by shoppers; all play a part in deciding the victor.

Please be aware that the Mongolian Wok will not be attending the event so plan your rations accordingly.

There will be more detail added as the event weekend draws near.

Site Closes: Noon of Monday May 27 – PLEASE NOTE that this is the time the site closes, *not* the time to start breaking camp!  If you cannot be off-site by noon, you *will* be part of the clean up crew.
