The Forty-first Year

Games Day -- Winter's Gate

July 8-9, 2006 (AS XLI)

(Private Property),
Fairbanks, AK

From The Page (June, 2006):

Summer is upon us, and now is the time for frolic! Come join us as we celebrate the joy of being warm outdoors! As there has been a request for an Asian flavored event, we invite you to wear Eastern style garb if you have it. Following that trend, a few of the entertainments planned are a Go! tournament and kite flying. We will be holding a kite making class for all ages, and will then attempt to fly our creations. Other kites are welcome. Other activities will be Winter's Gate Croquet, silly games, and a potluck dinner on Saturday night (please provide a list of ingredients). There are three competitions for this event; period game board and pieces in any mode, table-sized catapults that will be used for a castle siege during dinner (dry bread bits only please), and Eastern finger foods (this encompasses Middle Eastern as well as Oriental).

Site Information: (address omitted) / Fairbanks AK 99709. Site will open at 10 am on Saturday and close at 5pm on Sunday. Site fee is $5 members, $8 for non-members, and free for children ages 11 and under. For family rates, please contact the autocrat. Overnight camping may be available so watch the list for changes. Site is discretely wet. A more concrete plan will be posted to the list, so please keep watch. If you have any questions, please contact the autocrat.

Autocrat: Hakim (contact info omitted).
