Also bring tablecloths for your table.
We have room for thrown weapons, that is, knife and ax. We do not have the space or hay bales for spear throwing or archery.
We hope to have an A& S Norse display so you can proudly show off your latest projects.
We hope to have coffee available for everyone.
Unfortunately under the contract, we have to take out all of our garbage. We will try to have garbage sacks but you should bring at least one large one.
We have the use of Dishwashing sinks upstairs for personal dishes. Please do not use the bathroom sinks for dishwashing.
Food dishes should be, if possible, Scandinavian in nature. Let's not have KFC chicken in the original container. You can check Scandinavian cookbooks for ideas. Check your local library or contact us for ideas.
Breakfast will be pancakes but we are going to try something that we did when we came in the SCA. If you want eggs, bring some for yourself and some to share. If you want bacon, bring some for yourself but bring enough to share. If you want a breakfast food item, bring enough for yourself and to share with others.
There is a nearby Safeway for last minute purchases.
