Cutter Scout Camp,
Boulder Creek, CA
From The Page (May, 1994):
Attention all lads and lassies. Once again the pipes are calling ye to join in Montagne du Roi's fourth annual Highland Clan War. The Clan War is a small unit tactics war, fought between your "clan" of five fighters (bring a couple of alternates; some scenarios will include lights) in several types of battle, including bridge, open field and possibly woods. The clan with the highest point total at the end of the day takes home the Clan Banner and a basket of prizes. Prizes will also be awarded for second and third places.
The site will open at noon on Friday, and close at 5 p.m. on Sunday. The Clan War will begin on Saturday at 10 a.m.; armor inspection is a 8:30 a.m. Site fee is $8; day trips are $3 on Saturday and Sunday. Children age 12 and under will be admitted free. There will also be a tavern of sorts on site, which will charge a nominal fee for stew, sandwiches and other excellent food.
The war is being held at Cutter Scout Camp near the Big Basin Redwood Park. The site is beautiful; but the drive is not - the roads are windy and narrow, and may make some vehicles unhappy. Also, be on the lookout for poison oak, bees and mosquitoes. Be sure and bring plenty of drinking water. Ground fires will not be permitted; those of you with portable fires please bring them along. The lake will be off limits; however, there is a built in archery range on site. No offidal practice will be held, but we are allowed to use the range for $1 per person; so bring your bows and arrows if you wish.
Due to the fact that this is a Boy Scout cornp: alcohol is not allowed at this site.
Competitions: Arts and Sciences competitions will include persona-telling, handmade jewelry, and best garb under $5 (garb entries will be donated to our Gold Key.) Prizes are yet to be determined.
Page School activities will include our annual boffer tourney -- bring boffers if you have them; if not, come and join the fun anyway. Age categories will be determined after sign ups.
Autocrat: Siobhan O'Hays (name/contact info).
