[WES] Silver Desert's Championship and Collegium

Up for a bit more fun the weekend after Ducal? ... then come to Silver Desert's Championship and Collegium (September 12-13, 2009)

Come enjoy Silver Desert hospitality and the lovely September weather in the High Desert. ANYONE can vie to become Silver Desert's next Champion -- while there will be heavy fighting (a 'weird weapons' list), a true Silver Desert-style champion is a well-rounded person that knows about all sorts of Important Things, including heraldry, chess, dancing, archery, the Arts and Sciences, and much more! The winners of each competition will recieve a small prize, and those placing first, second, and third will recieve points towards the Championship. Anyone may enter any competition, but those contending for Champion must enter 7 of the 10. The A&S competition this year will be Siege Cooking.

For the more non-competetive among us (or those who want a short 'education break' in between competitions), there will also be a full slate of fun and interesting classes held in a comfy indoor venue.

Championship is always a blast, and we'd love to see you there. The more, the merrier!

The event will be held at Red Rock Hounds, which is a beautiful site with a pond for swimming. For anyone that doesn't care to camp, Reno is a short drive from the site. Pets on leash are welcome. There is no drinking water available on site, so be sure to bring your own.

DIRECTIONS: Take your favorite route to U.S. Route 395 North. Exit Red Rock Road (exit 78) Turn right at the bottom of the ramp and travel approx 17 miles to Chuckwagon (first road past the Red Rock Hounds driveway). Turn right on Chuckwagon and right again on Chariot. the gate will be on your right. There will be signs.

C'mon ... you know you want to ... it's not THAT far up the hill! :)
