Shire Of Hauksgarðr invites you to our Dæg for
April 19th in Cascade Locks,
Are you looking for new
activities to do in the SCA? Would you like to learn a new craft or
skill? Join us for a relaxed day of crafting, learning and
socializing in the heart of the beautiful Columbia Gorge. We hope
to provide a fun, relaxed day of meeting and greeting and sharing
our favorite A&S activities with others. We are setting up
classes now and plan to have a good variety to choose from.
Please...if you have a skill that you would be willing to share,
contact one of the autocrats.
The site has a grassy area
outside (with a beautiful view of the river!) for armoring classes,
camp cooking and if we have luck and no wind, there might also be
lampworking or other classes suited to the outdoors. The building
has a main room and a kitchen and is handicapped accessible. There
is room to plug in crock pots and to store some items for the
potluck. There are five restaurants within a few blocks and one
local market if you need to grab lunch or drinks on the way. There
is a new brewery next door as well!
There will be a potluck
dinner. Bring your favorite Main dish, Side dish, or Dessert. The
Shire will provide the bread. Site is discretely wet, please use
non-modern eating and drinking containers. Please remember that
some people have food allergies so please label food with your
ingredients. Bring enough food to feed your family plus several

Turn to the North, toward the river. Follow the road under the
railroad tracks (12' low clearance) and at the intersection follow
the park sign and turn left. Take the road to the end, past the
port office and the campground, to the Cascade Locks Community

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
