Last chance to practice before Pennsic! The shire of Eisental is once again hosting an East Kingdom War Camp at the Ukranian Homestead in Lehighton PA. There will be heavy weapons melee using the war scenarios, as well as archery, fencing, and thrown weapons. We also have space for siege weapons and gunnery. No organized children's activities are planned.
Merchants are welcomed; there is no charge for merchanting but MERCHANTS MUST PRE-RESERVE with autocrat for space BEFORE the event-- Contact the Autocrat at email@example.com, with subject line War Camp Merchanting.
The site is wet; there is a bars on site, and the pool will be open -- swim at your own risk. (There will be no, not nobody, not nohow, swimming after dark, however.)
It's a big site but not infinite. To avoid camping space conflicts, if you will need a large space for your camping group, you'll need to pre-register at least 10 people and contact the land agents to request space.
