The Twenty-eighth Year

West/An Tir War -- Kingdom of An Tir

July 2-5, 1993 (AS XXVIII)

Site: Sportsman's Park, Klamath Falls, OR

From The Page (June, 1993):

Come all ye bold and hearty fighters to the Crown Prindpality of Summits, to battle in the West/An Tir War. The site opens Friday, July 2 at noon and closes Monday, July 5 at 4 p.m. The site fee is $8 for adults, $3 for children 9 to 15, and free for children 8 and under.

Merchant fee is $6. Merchants are encouraged to have period encampments. For more information contact Deborah Elizabeth La Chi Ide (name/contact info). The merchant fee can be avoided if the merchant donates an item of $10 or more to the Kingdom of An Tir.

Parents be warned, this site has a running river through it and there is no lifeguard and is close to a rifle range. Parents are responsible for their children. The site has running water and one set of flush privies (or biffies as An Tirians say).

The site is scenic Sportsman's Park just west of the Shire of Southmarch.

James Greyhelm, Verena of Laurelin and Juana Isabella de Montoya y Ramirez are sponsoring a root beer competition. In An Tir this war is called An Tir/West - A&W, get it. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic entries, as well as judging assistance, will be welcome. One of the prizes will be 601bs of honey, also a pewter mug.

There will be a period yard sale and an auction to benefit An Tir.

There will be a children's treasure hunt and boffer tourney.

For those who have never been to Southmarch, the weather is hard to predict, on the average the temperature is about 85 to 95 degrees in the day and cools to about 45 to 55 degrees at night. But you should bring rain gear just in case it deddes to be wet. Since we are in the woods and near a river you may wish to bring some repellent for your own use. Some scenarios being discussed are castle battles, a bridge battle, a knights battle and various woods battles, also a bandits raid type scenario maybe included. And some other activities for those not fighting.

Autocrat: Pendair MacLaine (name/contact info).
