Unocal Campground,
Nikiski, AK

From The Page (June, 2007):

Prince Cyrus and Princess Caitriona invite you to journey to the Shire of Hrafnafjordr, where we will await the outcome of the Coronet List for the determination of Their Heirs. In honor of His Highness, it will be a Roman-themed Coronet. The chosen site is a secluded lakeside setting with much room for pageantry both large and small. Bring your banners, your Roman 'bling' and your imaginations!

Autocrat team whim will be best Roman hairstyles; His Highness' whim is period garb with documentation; Her Highness' whim will be cream cordials (if you would like a startup recipe, please contact Her Highness!).

A&S Competitions will Fine Arts- Illumination (beginning- less than 1 year; intermediate-anyone with more than 1 year experience) and Performing Arts- Poems of honor.

Soup and Roman rolls will be available to sate weary travelers on Friday evening; Piedpowder House will be serving a fundraiser breakfast on Saturday morning at an additional cost; lunch on Saturday will be a stunning array of light Roman finger foods; and Saturday evening will be a chance to relax at day's end while feast is served. Sunday will see a spread of pickings from the weekend's feasting.

Site Information: While the lake will provide a gorgeous backdrop for our event, it is not part of the site. Parents should be mindful of the whereabouts of their children at all times! The playground equipment is available for use. The site is a cozy Roman camp; therefore it is necessary for EVERYONE attending to RSVP to the head of the setup committee, Gunnar Olfriss, either by e-mail at (email address) or by phone at (phone) as soon as they suspect they will be coming! All those intending to camp, whether in a period pavilion or a mundane tent, must be prepared to give the approximate dimensions. Because of space concerns, carpooling is encouraged, and we need to know if you plan to bring an RV (RV reservations will be subject to an additional $10 parking fee.) Site will oepn Friday afternoon and close Sunday at 8 pm. Site fee is $15 for members, $18 for non- members, $10 for children ages 6-11, and children under 6 are free
