Favor Contest - The Event Steward offers a Fabulous Prize for the Best Favor presented for consideration at the event, subject to personal taste and whim.

Yard Donation Sale – What better time than NOW to clean out your closets of SCA "stuff" that you don't want to throw away, but you simply can't justify keeping any longer? Please donate your kindly used items to benefit the Great & Glorious Canton of Ravenhyrst. Contact the Event Steward.

Directions: Find your best way to I-225 & Alameda Ave. Exit west to Peoria St and turn right (north). You are now driving along the western boundary of the Aurora Hills Golf Course. Enter the park driveway on the right - it is across from E Archer Pl.

April Pole - You've heard of a May Pole, right? Well, this is what we dance around on April 30 - weather permitting.
