The Event Site & Facilities
This site, or "The Village", is located on 110 acres, and features a number of buildings, Covered and Open, Enclosed, Air Conditioned and Fenced fields all of which will provide a wide variety of venues for everything from Arts & Sciences Displays, to Equine Activities, to Fighting ~ pretty much all things SCA.  Ample space is available for camping.
Promenade
The central walkway, or "The Promenade", provides an easily accessible walkway through the center of The Village.  Nearly all buildings have an entryway from the main walk, providing easy access to all mobility groups.
The Village features an Equine Arena that is nearly the size of a football field with bleachers and a covered walk to the 150 stall Equine Pavilion.  The facility can be lit at night to extend the hours of activities.  In addition there are multiple turn out pens, and wash stalls.  Expect plenty of Equine activities. 
If Archery or Thrown Weapons is more to your liking, there is an extensive arena available for our use.  The Range features bleachers, safety and an observation booth, and lighting for evening activities. 
For Combat - be it Heavy or Rapier - we have the Tournament Pavillion and the Fight Pavillion.  Two separate, enclosed buildings providing shade, and circulating fans to help keep the temperatures down - both available for use 24/7.   There are also outdoor fields (a large one for both Heavy and Rapier, and a couple of "Pick up" spots near the Pavillions) for Melees and outdoor training, or additional engagements if needed.

Frequently Asked Questions
  
1. Are there hotels?
Yes, a listing of local hotels can be found on the "Local Information" tab. Some have also rented local apartments for the month.

2. How much space is allocated per person?  
While we don't know how many people are comming (can't check against last year's numbers you know) we expect that we will have at least 250sf per adult, 200sf per teen, 150sf per youth.  More may be possible, particularly in the northern areas.

3. Is there transportation around the site?
There will be a tram during main daylight hours 9am-6pm around the perimeter of the site, but the site is flat and easy to walk as well.

4. I noticed there are creeks ... are there bridges, can I build one?
There are some bridges across the creeks, and even some foot paths.  We will try to build additional foot paths, and with approval of the site engineer, you can build one.

5. Are there Handicap facilities? 
The site is 100% compliant with all ADA requirements.  The paths between buildings in the main village are flat and paved, there are handicap port a jons.  There is no seperate Handicap camping, as we would not presume to know where they would like to camp, or that they be seperated from family and friends.

 Not all loations have access to Power or Water.  Some are primative camping only. Details for each block are on the Land page.

7. Are there RV hookups?
You can camp in an RV, but there are not enough power and water hook ups.  The hook ups are used for additional shower trailers.  We will have some used for Dump and fill stations.  Generators are OK.

8. What about quiet hours?  
Yes, there are quiet hours.  10 pm to 8am.  Fortunately, we have several buildings to move the noisy parties into.

9.  What is the shower and restroom situation?
The site has several hard showers and restroom facilities.  There will also be shower trailers and porta-potties.  Other than the many existing hand washing stations in the existing faciliteis, we will now include 8 handwash stations to be distributed around the site.
