Masque of the Red Death

Join us in our yearly plague theme event and help us celebrate the persona wedding of The Honorable Lord John of Widcombe and Baroness Anna Genevieve of Ancyra. If you have not been to this site before you will be pleased. It rates 4 Stars on Celestine's site satisfaction scale. Rooms have only 2 bunk beds and are climate controlled for each room. Dorms have ample showers, toilets, coin laundry, fireplace and are scrupulously clean. Bring your own firewood. At the last event they also had a TV, refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. Parking while convenient to the dorms, can be a little tight. You may want to save some gas and ride with a friend. BBQ grills, outdoor tables and fire rings are available.

During the middle ages, Death would darken the door unannounced. Such is the case at the "Masque of the Red Death". When the Messenger of Death calls your name, say your farewells and expire in the manner of your choice.

There will be a "Wheel of Death" double elimination tournament. Scrolls will be awarded to A&S Competitions in Costume, Brewing, Armoring, Jewelry, Leatherwork, Woodwork, Herbal, Best Charm to Ward off the Plague At A Wedding, Best Dressed Couple, Most Chivalrous (on and off field), Best Mourners (on and off field), and Bocce ball. Saturday night enjoy a revel and our Captured Celt Coloring Contest, so bring your body paint or standard acrylic paint!

We also invite you to get into the Wedding spirit and join in the Wedding themed A&S competition. This is open to any medium, as long as it has some connection to the wedding theme. This is a separate category from the usual Masque A&S competitions and has a separate prize.
