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. By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks. You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.

Event details

Once again the Barony of Bhakail will be holding their Commons event, with rattan and rapier championships!

Tournament details TBA!

There is no site fee for this event and no feast.  There will be a potluck dayboard, please bring a dish to share.  There will be grills available for cooking and we will provide charcoal.  As the site is a state park alcohol is not permitted.

There are picnic tables under the pavilion but we recommend you bring a chair to watch the fighting.  There will be plenty of room for pop-ups or pavilions.

This is a great event to bring friends and family who are interested in the SCA but have been intimidated by the cost of other events. 

The site is a state park.  There are a few paved paths leading to the bathrooms but much of the site is grass and the ground is uneven.

The park does permit dogs, please keep them leashed and clean up after them.

More details forthcoming!

Site Opens: 10:00
Site Closes: 18:00
