Royal University of Meridies

The Shire of Talmere invites you to the AS XLII assembly of the Royal University of Meridies. Join seekers of knowledge for a weekend of learning and sharing; night-time class slots will be offered to help beat the heat and expand class time. Hasten to reserve your chateau by the lake and a place at the table, as feast is limited to 150 for Lord Guillaume's European lowlands cuisine.

The Woodmen of the World Camp
6045 Grant Ford Road

A hearty traveller's fare will be available for Friday night arrivals, enjoy a fundraiser lunch on Saturday during an extended lunch break. Saturday night following feast, take off your shoes and dance or relax to the drums of the hafla under the coordination of Mistress Jadi.

The WOW Camp offers limited beds in air-conditioned cabins or dorms (with showers and toilets) and ample space for camping. Fires in above ground braziers only. No parking will be allowed within the eventing area, vehicles will be allowed in long enough to unload then directed to parking areas. Merchants are welcome with no set up fees! There are no formal tourneys scheduled for RUM, but a field will be made available for pick-up fights and waterbearers will be on hand. Plenty of room for day-pavilions around the fighting field. We encourage attendees to bring pavilions and banners to help decorate the center field.
