Greetings from the Gulf Wars Land Liaison,

For those of you who haven’t heard, I’ve been asked by Their Majesties and Highnesses to be the Land Liaison (Land Agent, using Pennsic terms) for the Æthelmearc encampment at Gulf Wars this year.  If you are planning on going, but have never been there, it’s a lot easier (at least for us) than Pennsic in terms if preparation and set-up, and there are many old hands to help you along.

There are two deadlines for pre-registration: the USPS mail-in deadline with a Jan 31 postmark, and the online PayPal deadline, which has not yet been announced, but is expected to be some time between Feb 15 and Mar 01. Land allotment for camping at GW is almost the same as camping at Pennsic, so if you put the same number of people in your tent at GW as you do at Pennsic, that shouldn’t be an issue. More information can be found on the Gulf Wars website.

We will be having a camp meal plan, details TBA, but it will be coordinated by Mistress Illadore, giving her a full three months after moving back from The West to get ready for it. 🙂

GW Land staff will be sending all official information via email, and so to minimize steps, and to accommodate a number of gentles who are going to Gulf Wars (some of whom are on royalty staff and need to be in the know), I will be conducting all official GW Æthelmearc encampment business and information dissemination using a GoogleGroup (it just sends all posts to it to members’ email, just like the
kingdom distribution list), so anyone interested in going who wants to camp with Æthelmearc, please send me your email address and both SCA and mundane names (for checking the pre-reg list I’ll get from GW Land) either via PM on Facebook, or directly to koredono@gmail.com

Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you all there with us.

In Service,
Magariki Katsuichi no Koredono, KSCA
