[OUT] Defender's Folly

Since our conquest of the Northern Outlands is complete, we decided that this year would be a good time to combine Jester's Folly and Caer Galen Defender.

Now in one compact package, we will have the best of both events: Friday Night Fights, Flaming Arrows, the Knowne World's only Fruit Shoot, and the Outland's only siege weapon competition. Added to this, there will be a "Boar" Hunt as well as other heavy weapons challenges coordinated by Sir Gareth, devious and challenging shoots developed by Lord Simon of Ravenswood, and exciting rapier matches planned by Her Excellency Signy von Velden. Once all the fighting, fencing, shooting, and lobbing of heavy objects is done, the Platte River is just over the hill for us to cool off in.

SVHS Tallow River Trappers Rendezvous Site, Fort Lupton, CO
Site opens: July 17th, 5:00 pm
Site closes: July 19th, noon

More of the site will be mowed over the next few weeks, so we will be able to conduct some of our martial arts activities in the rendezvous portion. They will be fogging for bugs the day before we use the site, but you'll still want to bring some repellant just in case.

Please Note:

  • Site is wet.
  • There is no potable water on site. Please bring your own drinking water.
  • Above ground fire pits only - minimum of 6" clearance. Fire restrictions may apply.
  • Pets must be on leash at all times.
  • The site is adjacent to the Platte River, so children should have adult supervision at all times.
  • Although there is a fair amount of shade, bringing additional shade is advisable.
  • Bring bug spray.
