[EAL] Summer Siege III

The Drums of War are Pounding! We have changed the location this year! Gate opens at 8 a.m.

In co-operation with the Chesterville Farmer's Market we will be using their site this year. This event will be an extremely public one. We are in the field directly beside the Chesterville Farmer's Market, which will be open.

NOTE: The Farmer's Market will be having a bee keeping seminar for anyone interested.

Do not worry about people just walking into the event, as our site area and all our event activities will be roped off, but, be prepared to have spectators and an audience most of the day.

We have some loaner garb available for people brand new to the SCA.
You can bring your own tents/sun shades. There is plenty of space.
