- There are water spiggots available on site, with potable water.  There are also rustic washrooms with flush toilets and running water. 
- While dogs are allowed on site, AnTir leash laws will be in effect, and enforced. Please ensure your dog is leashed at all times, and that you clean up after them.
- Smoking will be permitted in designated areas only. Please check with gate and the site map for appropriate areas. 
- Open fires will not be permitted.  Please check for updates on this as the event approaches as we will be in consultation with the local fire marshals regarding permissability of propane fires and torches. 
- The site is very open. Please bring your shade, and your sunscreen. 

For those travelling from the US, please remember that you'll need your passport, or other suitable goverment ID to cross the border. :) Also, be sure to check the government websites for what you are, and are not, permitted to bring to Canada.  There are specific rules surrounding cross border transport of fruits and vegetables, meats, alcohol, firearms, and (obviously) illegal or controlled substances.  Of course, neither guns nor pot are permitted at SCA events anyhow, so it may be best to just leave those safely at home.

Activities

Artisan Village

Greetings All! There is room ath July Coronation to do an A&S Village - but we need your help!! The concept is a group of people coordinate a sunshade of activity with a specific theme - scribal, fibre arts, woodwork, etc and have it and activity during the weekend. It can have open/closed hours, can be a drop in for others to learn, can host classes, or simply be a demonstration area. This has been successful in the past gathering many people together to work in one venue. The site has the space - you just need to let us know how much you need! 

If the Artisan Village interests you please let me know what theme your area will have. If you would like to teach I am gathering names and topics. These can be taught in your Artisan Village area if you have one, your encampment, or we will have a couple of areas for teachers to use.

You can message me here or email me at cristinplatt@gmail.com with your classes or display ideas etc. 
In Service,
Yrsa Ketilsdottir

 

Super Six Largesse Competitions - July Coronation AS52

July Coronation is only a few months away and it is time to start thinking about preparing and entering the Super Six Competitions.  Largesse is an opportunity to support our cherished Royals, who travel great distances throughout the lands of An Tir and beyond.  The theme will be "Compact Largesse" with an emphasis on items that pack down easily and take up a minimum of space.  With this in mind, some suggestions are:  Sewing Kits; Pin Cushions, Armor Kits, Hand Stitched Items (hankies, kerchiefs); Jewelry or Hair Items; Trim; or Small Toys & Coloring Items but you are only limited by your imagination.

We are having two competitions this year and you are invited to participate in both or one of your choice.

Youth Largesse:  With the increased focus on YAFA (Family Activities) and Youth Combat it is important to provide items that allow their majesties to recognize the participants in these programs.  Today's youth are tomorrow's future and ensure the continuation of this great game we play.  Often it is the small recognition that comes with receiving acknowledgement of the participants that keeps them coming back.

General Largesse:  As always, their majesties need a broad range of items to include in the various largesse exchanges they are part of throughout their travels.  The artisans of An Tir have a reputation for creative and talented skills producing a wide range of largesse items and we wish to continue this tradition.  

As always it is recommended to avoid items: that are overly fragrant (spices, incense, perishables); breakable (glass, pottery); food or items that could leak.

There will be prizes for both competitions ... (1) The populace choice and (2) Their Majesties choice.

For queries or additional information please contact the Largesse Coordinator, Taliesin Ap Hafgan through a PM on Facebook or emailing him directly Taliesin.ap.hagan@shaw.ca .
