[CAL] Lilies War XXIV

War of the Lilies is an annual event held in the center of the Kingdom of Calontir in June. It has been said that Lilies is so much like a vacation, you may forget it is a war, and it is our hope to continue that tradition.

The site for the last several years has been Kelsey Short Youth Camp at Smithville Lake, Missouri. This is about 30 minutes north of downtown Kansas City (and even closer to the KC airport). The site features open fields, separated by wooded areas and is nearly surrounded by a swimming lake that never closes. Come join us for a week of battles, tournaments, classes, archery, medieval games, shopping, and nights of singing, dancing and reveling.
