HELP:  We are looking for a combat archery marshal and youth fighting marshal.  If you can help please contact the autocrat. 

The Barony of Carillion has stepped forward to answer the call to War and will host the Southern Region war camp Year II.  Located less then 10 minuets from exit 8 on the NJ Turnpike, at the same boy scout camp at which spring crown of 2009 was held, there will be ample room for activities and camping.  We will be having a WOODS BATTLE!!!  As well as fields, bridges and a valley battle with siege and combat archery as it will occur at the war.  We will be having a variety of rapier activities to suit not only preparation for the war but the interest of the rapier community as well.  Archery shoots for all the war points including the clout will be available.  We are attempting to assemble a woods shoot for both the general archery community and the equestrian community.  We will also be providing targets for the throwing weapons community, youth marshals will be running a youth tourney and melees, and we have tapped several very talented artisans to teach classes.

There will be Equestrian activities at this event!  In addition to a mounted martial challenge, we will be going on a trail ride to a beautiful meadow.  Equestrian camping and competition area will be near the heavy fighting field, so come over and see the horses and their riders pick up their swords and lances and determine who will win the day!  If you wish to bring your horse(s) to this event, please contact the equestrian marshal-in-charge prior to the event.  All horses attending the event must have a current Coggins test, and horses traveling from outside New Jersey must have a current 30-day interstate health certificate, per SCA Equestrian regulations.  Equine health paperwork can be transmitted to the marshal-in-charge in advance via fax or email, or produced at the event prior to unloading the horse from the trailer.  Sorry, no rental horses are currently available for this event.

Class schedule will be posted and updated as class leaders are confirmed.

A Plague Sale (silent auction) will be held to raise funds to help cover the cost of the Runnemeade Dinner that is going to be held at the upcoming Pennsic War by the Barony of Carillion.  The Plague Sale will be available to peruse on Friday June 8th and Saturday June 9th.  The Plague Sale will be held in the main hall.  Bids will be increased by increments of $1.  The Plague Sale will end on Saturday at 3:00 pm.  In addition, there will be a bake sale held on Saturday June 9th.  Breakfast pastries will be available at the bake sale.  The bake sale will close at 3 pm on Saturday June 9th.

The site is dry.  If you have any site related questions please contact the site autocrat.  Also to assure low costs to everyone no day board will be provided, the boy scouts will be cooking hot dogs and hamburgers as well as selling soft drinks as a fundraiser to help support their activities.  No feast is planned, there are a wide variety of restaurants within 10 minuets drive of the site.  Local dining and shopping information will be provided at the troll.
