COVID-19 Statement

The East Kingdom and the event staff are committed to making sure that our friends & families stay safe. Kingdom guidelines for COVID safety change often. Masks that conform to CDC standards and worn properly over the nose and mouth are required of all attendees over the age of 2 in all indoor spaces or in public tents or pop-ups with 3 or 4 walls up and may only be lowered briefly for eating or drinking. Masks are optional when outdoors and we encourage frequent handwashing and social distancing. Please take whatever steps you feel are necessary for your own sense of safety beyond the stated mandates.

All persons over the age of 5 are now required to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the event. All persons over the age of 18 must also present government issued photo ID or a valid SCA membership card. Please have these in hand when checking in.

Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events.

Event details

Come join Bhakail at our annual Commons.  As always we will be holding our heavy weapons and rapier championships that day.  You don't need to live in Bhakail to become a Bhakail champion, you just need to be willing to wear the regalia and attend His Excellancy Baron Muin in court.  We will also be selecting Bhakail's populace champions that day as well.  This is also open to anyone who competes that day.

Due to Covid we will not be having our traditional potluck.  Please bring your own picnic foods.  There is a grill on the site and charcoal will be provided. 

There is a large open space on the site so shade pavilions are permitted and recommended.  And don't forget to bring a chair.

As this is a state park we are in full view of the public so be aware there may be spectators without garb.  This is also a great event to bring curious friends and family. 

WARNING:  This is a park, it isn't very friendly to people with disabilities.  There are rocks, roots and some slopes. 

This is a dry site per state regulation.  NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED!
