It's that time of year again... Pennsic plans are being made... some of you are making plans for Ages of War... and others are contemplating a trip to the woods and Vilku Urvas.

As always, we will have shade, fire, and open hospitality.  New this year is a meal plan available to any and all (but pre-registration is REQUIRED).  We will be serving four different meals.  Friday Dinner (ham sandwiches), Saturday Breakfast (scrambled eggs and bacon), and Sunday Breakfast (biscuits and sausage gravy) will cost $3 each.  Saturday Dinner (beef and veggie kabobs with roasted chicken and glazed veggies) will cost $6.  Meals are available "a la carte", so you can pick and choose which meals you want to join us for!
