The Shire of Skerjastrond cordially invites its neighbors, cousins, and friends (past, present, and future) to come visit the northeast frontier of Northshield August 17-19, 2007.
WR 5 will be a small, relaxed event focusing on various period games. We will have a thrown weapons marshal available, so if you want to throw sharp things, come on up.
We would like to have more fighting, but here is where we are begging a boon. If any marshals are willing to make the journey, we will comp your site fee. If we have a marshal with fighters, there will be fighting.
There will be a tavern lunch available of beef stew, barley-mushroom soup, and bread for a donation. Lord Andrew and Lady Johanna will be reprising favorite dishes from their past feasts this year. (Alas, no goat this time, however)
Directions: From the south, take your best route to Escanaba. From the North, take your best route to Marquette. From Escanaba: Follow M-35 north toward Gwinn. As you enter Gwinn, you will pass a small park (Peter Nordeen Park). At Flint St. (1st street past park) turn right and follow the road to the end. That will be Iron St. At this point you will see the park. Turn left onto Iron St. and you will pass a gate on your right. Turn right at the gate and you are in the park. From Marquette: Follow M-553 to the intersection of M-553 and Southgate Drive. Turn right onto Southgate Drive. Follow Southgate Drive over the river, this is now Iron Street. Just past the bridge, on your right you will see the gate for the park.
Currently there is construction on M-35 entering Gwinn. If the construction continues till August, folks arriving from the south will have to turn north onto M-553 and access the site through southgate drive (map on website).
