The Ice Dragon is Coming! The Ice Dragon is Coming!! Run, don’t walk, to you nearest phone, mail box, or computer and find out how to have the best March 17, 2007 of your lives.
That’s right good gentles, The Barony of the Rhydderich Hael is proud to present for the 29th consecutive year, the one! The only! The Festival of the Passing of the Ice Dragon!
Well to put it briefly, Ice Dragon is the premier A&S, one of the largest Heavy, and finest fencing event within the Kingdom of Æthelmearc.
This year the festival will be at the Erie County Fair Grounds, at 5600 McKinley Parkway, Hamburg NY, 14075. The Date of March 17, 2007 has been reserved for this glorious event.
Pentathlon? What is that?
The Ice Dragon A&S Pentathlon, or Pent for short, is the largest A&S competition in Æthelmearc outside of Pennsic. For more information, please visit: http://www.lightlink.com/rhiannon/Ice_Dragon_Rules07DRAFT.htm
There is going to be tavern style dining throughout the day with GOOD food, TASTY food, and CONVENIENT, almost period foods and a variety of beverages for the SCAdian on the go.
Prices for Ice Dragon are as follows:
Adults Pre-reg: $8 in advance or $10 at the door
Children 6 – 12 Pre-reg: $4 in advance or $5 at the door
Those less than 6 years are free
*these prices are in American funds. If using Canadian funds please add 40%
**as per society rules there will be a $3 non-member charge for all those without proof of membership. No exceptions.
The site is discretely damp. Please be observant of this rule. And ALL the buildings are smoke free. Smoking is permitted on the property but must take place a minimum of 25 feet from any buildings. Plus all mundane rules and laws apply. I do apologize for any inconvenience, but these are the rules we must abide by.
Make your best way to route I-90. Travel to exit 56 (Blasdell / Milestrip Road / Rt 179); pay the toll. From there, look for bright orange signs saying SCA, and follow them to the site.
From Canada: The most efficient rt. is to cross into the US via Ft. Erie and the Peace bridge. Once you cross the bridge and pass customs (do not forget your ID’s) veer to your left and follow the signs for NYS I-190. You will go through one light then down a short road to the intersection of Porter Ave. turn right at this light and follow the signs for 190 south. Travel along the 190 south until it joins with the I-90 south to Erie. Now follow the above directions.
Hope to see all of you there.
