The Twenty-ninth Year

The West/Caid War -- West Kingdom (Tarnmist)

April 22-23, 1995 (AS XXIX)

Boy Scout Camp,
Arroyo Grande, CA

From The Page (March, 1995):

Once again Tarnmist hosts the West/Caid war. The war is at the same site (a private ranch) as in 1993.

Site opens for merchants at 9 a.m. Friday and at 12 noon for all others. The site will be open through Monday morning for those needing to stay past Sunday night.

Camping is near last war's parking area, and the valley previously used for camping is now for fighting only.

Once again, there are no open flames or ground fires allowed due to dry conditions and high grass. Bring enclosed lanterns and portable fire pits. Clear the area where your cooking fire is to be. Each camp needs either water, fire extinguisher, or shovel, but it's best to have all three. Any unattended fires are subject to dousing by the fire watch.

A dumpster is provided, but if it becomes full, be prepared to lug home your trash (bring bags!). There are stores 15 minutes away from site, at Lopez Lake and in Arroyo Grande.

Water is available on site at one location only. Cold water, open showers are also available. Alcohol is allowed for those legally old enough to drink.

Parking will be multi-laned, so please pay attention to others' needs to exit and enter parking area. No vehicles will be allowed in the camping or fighting areas, period. This includes trailers and merchant vehicles. Merchants needing to park by their booth should ask for parking-side space.

Normal war conventions will be in force for fighting. Archery butts will be available. Contests for this event are yet to be announced - interested parties should contact autocrat and notify The Page.

Site fee: $10.00 per person over 12 years of age. A $1.00 non-member surcharge will be collected from those without current membership proof. All fees to be paid at gate, no exceptions, please. All minors require a signed SCA waiver dated for this event and a designated chaperone.

Autocrat: Bodo Rosti (name/contact info).

Merchant Autocrat: the Kingdom merchant coordinator, Marcus the Just (name/contact info).

Merchant fee: is the site fee plus $1.00 per foot of frontage to go to the Kingdom merchant coordinator.

No pre-payment allowed.
