We're having a REVEL just for the fun of it!!
August 3-5, 2007
2307 NW 121 Ave Gainesville, FL 32609
NO SITE FEES
We've opened up our home to the friends we know and to the friends we've yet to meet.
The theme for this revel is "Back to Basics" which means that we are extending a special invitation to people who are new to the SCA to come and learn this organization from the ground up. But we can't do it all alone! So we are also inviting everyone else to come and help show the new comers what you have learned. We'd like to have people come and teach classes in anything you'd like, but keep it geared toward the new comers. And that's just during the day!! Night time is when we get to cut loose and party late into the night!
