June Faire

May 31, 2013 to June 02, 2013
Dragon's Laire

Kitsap & N Mason Counties, WA

Autocrat: Adelheide Leeawin & Aileen of Dragon's Laire device6474OP

...

Their Excellencies, Baron Arontius and Baroness Laurellen, invite you to celebrate the 31st anniversary of June Faire with the Barony of Dragon's Laire! Join Their Royal Majesties, King UlfR and Queen Caoimhe, for a full weekend of festivities and camping, May 31-June 2, 2013. Experience feats of armored combat, the finesse of rapier, archery, thrown weapons, a magnificent Arts & Sciences village, bardic performances, and a bustling marketplace.  This is our annual public demo and our premier Baronial event.  Please be prepared to show our modern guests just how skilled and dedicated the SCA is.

 

The Faire is remaining within the town of Port Gamble, WA.  The site is without power and we encourage you to prepare for all possibilities.  Visit www.portgamble.com for community information.  The Baronial website is www.dragonslaire.org which will have updated event information as it becomes available.

 

Camping groups with 5 tents or more and RV campers must both pre-register *and* contact the camping coordinator to ensure camping space, as pre-registering does not automatically mean that you will be placed with your group. 

All pre-registrations need to be done through ACCEPS for those in the U.S.  For those in Canada, please contact the pre-reg coordinator,  jf_gate@dragonslaire.org.  We encourage everyone to pre-register.  PRE-REG DEADLINE IS MAY 21st.  Pre-registering does not automatically reserve your camping space in your group.  If you wish to camp with or near a certain group, you need to contact the camping coordinator, Lord Thangbrand, at thangbrand_of_dl@rocketmail.com to ensure space is reserved.  RV campers contact THL Theodoric at fairwater@gmail.comCamping reservation deadline is May 22nd.

Pre-registration will begin no later than February 14th.  The ACCEPS website is at http://acceps.ansteorra.org/index.php

Please print your confirmation e-mail and bring it with you, just in case we or ACCEPS make a mistake.

Gate opens at 10 AM on Friday and closes at 1 PM on Sunday.  Everyone must be off site by 7 PM on Sunday.
