Great Tidings! Word has come to us through diplomatic channels that the Most Powerful and Sovereign Royal Majesties of the East, Lucan VII and Yana IV have arranged to be present upon the Field of Honour November 18! We are well pleased at this news and we are immeasurably honoured they will be joining us. We do conceive this shall become a day to remember!
Richard & Treacaigh Acris Rex et Regina
As is surely well known, the popular East Kingdom 100 Minutes War has been cancelled. This is not only woeful news to the East Kingdom, but too the Kingdom of Acre, as we have enjoyed this noble conflict for many years and looked forward to it again this year.
Therefore, having the wherewithal, being a most suitable site and a void upon the date of 18 November in our schedule the Holy Kingdom of Acre would like to to fill the emptiness for those of our respective Kingdoms who yearn for War. I here extend invitation to all our East Kingdom cousins to join us in this fighting event on that date in Sands Point LI.
It is a picturesque site with Gould Castle and the Hempstead House as the back drop to the activities and the ample room for our needs.
Please, let us know of your interest by contacting Viscount Erec l'Claire so we may get a count for the provisions for the day board. We hope to see you there!
King Richard & Queen Treacaigh
Crown of the Holy Kingdom of Acre
Count and Countess of Ascalon
Viscount Erec L'Claire (Eric Erb)

Site opens at 10 am.
Site fee: $5 which includes dayboard. (While advance reservations are NOT required, we greatly would appreciate letting us know you are attending. For advance reservations checks should be made out to MSR Inc.)
Parking: on site FREE
Armor inspections until 12:30
One- hundred Minute Resurection Battle begins at 1 pm.
In general East Kingdom armor and weapons standards will be adopted.
Combat archery will be included again under East Kingdom conventions. After consult with East Combat Archery Marshals ALL East Kingdom LEGAL Combat Archery equipment will be allowed as their safe operation will not exceed to battlefield constraints. Therefore "heavy" Bows and Crossbows WILL be allowed. These being the conventions, we would be looking to EK Marshals and CA marshals to assist in the inspections and field marshaling.
We are able to acommodate other activities such as fencing and archery (the site has ample room) if there is enough interest. Our intent is essentially to satisfy the heated blood of rattan combatants. ;)
Merchants are welcome. There is no additional fee for merchants but there are no facilities. This is an entirely outdoor event.
Any questions, send them to:
