There will be equestrian, heavy fighting (including a polearm tourney), fencing, archery, thrown weapons, A&S, children’s activities and so much more!

You may download the pre-registration form here. We encourage pre-registration as you will not get a lunch unless you pre-register. DEADLINE for pre-registration is Thursday, May 19, so you need to either pop this in the mail today or email the form to rhyspenbras@gmail.com. You may certainly pay at the gate on the day, but you will have no lunch, so plan accordingly.

Camping is $10 per tent and $25 for hook-ups, per night. We ask that you let us know if you will be camping, for space planning purposes.

There will be a sack lunch sideboard with pasties and other delights (vegetarian and GF options available). You MUST reserve for the sack lunch, even though it is included in the cost of the event (see above). The site is very discretely damp, and alcohol is allowed for the A&S entries. Under no circumstances may there be any alcohol in the barn; this will be grounds for immediate expulsion from the event. No animals except for service animals and horses.

This is an active equestrian facility, no-one may enter the boarding barn areas without permission; this will be grounds for expulsion from the event. Please do not feed anything to any horse without the permission of the owner. Aside from adhering to the normal youth policies, we ask that parents keep a sharp eye on their children; the fences are electrified, and there are many other normal farm dangers present.

We will be asking all participants to sign the equestrian waiver at check-in. Horses must have negative coggins and rabies for in-state, and also health certs if from out of state.
