[DRA] Civil War

There is unrest in the shire of Juneborg. The dispute over the estate granted by the King continues. Who is the rightful owner? Is it true that the winner of last year’s war signed away the rights to a loyal general from his side? It seems we must once again settle this cause on the field of honour with swords and axes. For the more peaceful people there will be classes, workshops and arts and science exhibition as well as a bazaar where items pass from one owner to another. On Saturday a great feast will be served to the hungry and to the survivors. Please bring your banners to help decorate the feast hall.

Useful information
There are no showers on site, but showers will be available in Sandhem, and transportation will be arranged. Drinking water and a microwave oven will be available outside the kitchen. Please try not to disturb the kitchen staff. Please use hot water with moderation - it will be needed for washing up after feast! We appreciate if you drink moderately. Please avoid bringing pets to the site.

Arts and science:
An arts and science exhibition will be held on Saturday. There are two themes: Anacronism (objects made with modern methods but which look medieval) and Crafts (everything else...) The populace may vote for their favourites. During feast there will be a contest for best entertainment. There is a time limit of 5 minutes for each participant. Please contact Fru Astrid Jonsdotter Torp (astridjohnsdotter@yahoo.se) in advance if you wish to participate. The high table will act as judges.

Sleeping on the site:
There are two sleeping options: Calm and Party crashspace. Please note that there are no beds on the site. However there is room for camping beds and air beds. Please consider that we need room for a lot of people - don't bring oversized beds or mattresses. Calm crashspace: Concrete floor on the ground floor. Remember to bring a blanket or similar to put under your air bed, since the floor is cold. Party-crashspace: Wooden floor by the feast hall on the upper floor. There is no wall between the crash space and the feast hall. We hope to be able to move the last party to an adjacent room to make sleeping easier late at night.

All meals will be taken by the fire place on the upper floor. Please note that there will be no food served on Friday night. There is a pizza-place in Sandhem, or you may bring you own food. There will also be a barbecue available from 18.30 to 22.00 if you want to prepare your own food. Off-board tables will be available for feast. Please tell the Troll if you want off-board seating.

At the end of the war, meat sandwiches will be for sale near the fighting grounds.
