The Thirty-ninth Year

War of Southern Aggression -- Darkwood

June 4-6, 2004 (AS XXXIX)

Coyote Lake Park,
Gilroy, CA

From The Page (June, 2004):

The South is rising again! Word has reached us that the troops of Tarnmist, those aggressors to the South, are once again coveting the bountiful crops and prize lands of Darkwood. Now, Darkwood, as we all know, is a peaceful Barony; and wishes only for harmony with its neighbors. (Those rumors about us and Westermark's sheep are pure scandalmongering!) Therefore, the poor, defenseless canton of Koenigstadt has invited both Barons and their troops for some friendly peace negotiations. Naturally, the gentle, peace-loving troops supporting Darkwood are advised to bring their armor along, just in case the aggressors from the South choose to violate the truce. We also advise the noble and honorable Southern-minded troops to bring their armor, in case of Northern duplicity. You never know.

The, ah, peace negotiations are scheduled to start at noon sharp. Armor inspection will be available starting at 11, or after the marshals have had their coffee. For those of you planning to camp, there will of course be a party Saturday night (oh come on, this is Darkwood! Of course there's a party!) Bring something to share for a potluck barbecue.

Site Information: Site fee is $5 for members $8 for non-members (WKWC will be in attendance). Children under 12 are free (buy now and save!) There is a car fee of $5 per car. Site opens at noon on Friday and closes at 4 pm on Sunday.

Autocrat: Caitlyn O'Byrne (contact info omitted).
