From The Page (June, 2014):

The Hunt is on! Come hunt the Horned One as he or she cavorts through the mysterious woods of Chena Lakes as Winter's Gate celebrates its Court Changeover from the Holly Court to the Oak Court. Our hunt will include the Stag and several Hunting Dogs-be warned of mysterious beasts such as squirrels and dragons that have been known to inhabit the Chena Lake Recreation Area. We will set up a community tent upon the Green where children of all ages may play on the playground. Viking Long Boats (PDF's, kayaks and canoes) will be provided for those who are brave enough to battle the Sea Monsters in the Chena Lakes. Fun and games will ensue throughout the weekend. Whims and more information will be forthcoming and the many of the specifics will be provided via updates to our website, yahoo group, and Book of Faces.
