[ANT] June Faire XXIX

Their Excellencies, Baron Arontius and Baroness Laurellen, invite you to celebrate with the Barony of Dragon's Laire, their 29th annual June Faire for a full weekend of festivities and camping, June 3-5, 2011.

Experience feats of armored combat, the finesse of rapier, archery, thrown weapons, the Baronial Equestrian Championship, a magnificent Arts & Sciences village, bardic performances and a bustling marketplace. This is our annual public demo and our premier Baronial event. Please be prepared to show the moderns just how skilled and dedicated the SCA is. As a special attraction, this year June Faire has been placed on the An Tir Fighters Tournament Circuit. The finest fighters in the Kingdom will cross swords.

The Faire is remaining within the Port Gamble, WA town. The site layout for 2010 was a wonderful success and provided a good environment for the public and SCA participants. The site is without power and we encourage you to prepare for all possibilities. Visit www.portgamble.com for community information. The Baronial website is www.dragonslaire.org which will have updated event information as it becomes available.

Camping groups with 5 tents or more and RV campers must pre-register "and" need to contact the camping coordinator, HL Jahnkin de Leeuw at dancingdolphin97@yahoo.com to ensure camping space as pre-registering does not automatically reserve that you will be placed with your group.

All pre-registrations need to be done through ACCEPS for those in the U.S. For those in Canada, please contact the pre-reg coordinator, HL Jenae Joyeux at ladyjenae@gmail.com . We encourage everyone to pre-register. PRE-REG DEADLINE IS MAY 13th. Pre-registering does not automatically reserve your camping space in your group. If you wish to camp with or near a certain group, you need to contact the camping coordinator, HL Jahnkin to ensure space is reserved. Equestrians must notify the Equestrian Officer Murakami Tsuruko, Sensei at tsuruko@dancingcraneart.com prior to the event.
