To celebrate Great Western Wars Tenth Anniversary there will be a limited number of cast pewter pilgrim badge site tokens produced.

Another batch will be made available at gate for those who register on site, while supplies last.


LAND ALLOCATION:

ATTENTION: In an effort to be fair to those who can not arrive early - Those who are pre-registered and arriving on Tuesday may reserve land for others who have also Pre-registered. On Wednesday all land is first come first served. So make sure everyone in your group is registered before September 15, 2007.

ARTS & SCIENCES:
Online Class Pre-registration is now being accepted; please visit http://caid-gww.org/classes.html for more information


WATER BEARING:
Great Western War is coming upon us in the very near future, and we need your help! If you have the urge to help our many great fighters, we are accepting donations for waterbearing! Oranges, powdered not-red Ade of Gator and pickles are what we need most! (We would certainly not turn our nose up at time volunteered at War, either!) Anything you can spare would be a boon to us all – please don’t hesitate to be generous. We would be most humbly appreciative of anything you could spare for the war and would sing your praise loud and long.

If we find we are running short of oranges and Ade of Gator, we would gladly accept wheelbarrows, as we may be needing them to get the fighters off the field!


VOLUNTEERS
You've heard the old saying that "many hands make light work". Please consider donating a few hours of your time to volunteer at the war. In addition to helping to make it a memorable event you will earn a monetary donation to your favorite SCA territory. Please visit HYPERLINK "http://www.caid-gww.org/gwwvolunteer/volunteerpositions.php"http://www.caid -gww.org/gwwvolunteer/volunteerpositions.php to select and sign up for really choice shifts and time slots.
