It's August! The crops that have not yet been burned to a crisp by the drought wither on the stalk and pray for a quick harvest to end their misery! In like manner the OLDE FARTS of The Shire of Otherhill will gather down by the Bear River to harvest those brash young men and women that venture out under the hot August sun.
Come join the oldest shire in the fair Kingdom of Artemisia and see what kind of old tricks the old farts have to teach the spry young dogs of war!!!!
There will be a tourney with a prize going to the slyest old fart and a prize going to the most brazen and successful young dog. At this time we forsee heavy weapons, but we welcome the other forms of warfare as well. Rapier! Archery! Thrown Weapons! (Please bring your own targets or a DEFINITE reservation so that we might procure what is needed!)
As the group area we have reserved is somewhat primitive, the mid-afternoon feast will be a picnic, with the Shire of Otherhill providing grilled meats, suitable breads and such. You are welcome to bring small fried pieces of white roots or of mashed corn. Bring drinking water, though we shall endeavor to ensure that bottled water and cheap bubbly colored water is also available.
As you go about eating sausages, burgers and more rejoice, for the park is damp! The request that we do not bring in kegs of beer nor glass containers, so bring your own spirits!
The park is handicapped accessible and pets are welcome, but must be tethered to their owners at all times.
THERE ARE FENCED PASTURES CONTAINING ELK AND BISON ? THESE ARE NOT TO BE MOLESTED, TEASED NOR EATEN!
(Violators would likely face mundane prosecution, and afterwards the Shire of Otherhill will ship you off to clean up after the Mongol Hordes Horses!)
