Join us in the beautiful Bitterroot mountains on the first weekend of July, 2007 for our annual Hellsgate Tournament. Bring your 5 person melee teams, and your enthusiasm.
Besides various fighting scenarios , there will be torchlight chariot jousting, a combat archery duel, an ax throwing contest, a basket weaving class (not underwater!) taught by Dame Bronwen, other classes, gatherings and activities yet to be announced.
A note to Baronial members: at this event there will be a confidence polling for Baron Adne and Baroness Judith who would like to renew their warrants for another 2 years. If at all possible please try to attend on Saturday and participate.
The site, Larry Creek group camp, opens at 2 pm on Friday, and closes at 2 pm on Sunday. The water on site is drinkable but may taste of iron. There are forest service outhouses but no showers. Pets on leashes are allowed, but owners must clean up after them. This is a mountain site, so do supervise children and pets carefully, as there are bears, mountain lions and wolves in the area. There is a small stream in the trees at the edge of the meadow, and depending on the weather various biting insects can be annoying, so bug repellent is strongly advised. Above ground fires are allowed, although that could change depending on forest fire restrictions. This is a wet site. Quiet hours between 12 am and 7 am will be enforced. (This does not preclude chatting and singing around the fires, but does mean no drumming or shouting after midnight. Please be considerate.)
For those who don't care to camp, there are 2 small motels just a few miles down the road in Stevensville.
