Two Rocks is an active government installation that generously allows us to use their facilities. They have certain regulations and it is our responsibility to honor those rules with the courtesy that is so much a part of the SCA. SITE REGULATIONS: 1) all cars MUST be insured (public liability and property damage) and proof of liability insurance should be produced on request. If you cannot provide proof of insurance, you will have to park outside the base and have your tourney gear transported inside by someone else. 2.) NO PETS!!! This will be strictly enforced, so please leave Fido of Fee Fee or Gunga Din at home. 3.) DON'T SPEED! The posted speed limits MUST be adhered to, especially the 10 MPH limit in the housing areas. 4.) NO CAMP FIRES! 5.) NO PORJECTILE WEAPONS and no live ammunition, and 6) The lake is NOT suitable for swimming. Any questions should be directed to the autocrats, Anastasia Temparia Dmitryevna and Baron Theodrik of Skane, (phone).
