France Equestrian Center, Palmer Fairgrounds,
From The Page (June, 2015):
The returning light and early spring weather now stretching across Oertha has reminded us that winter is ending and summer is on her way! We therefore invite you to join us at Oerthan Summer Coronet and Investiture, to be held at the France Equestrian Center within the Palmer Fairgrounds on July 17-19, 2015. Come witness the selection and investiture of the heirs of Their Lupine Highnesses, Shawn and Arabella, Prince and Princess of Oertha.
A potluck dinner will be available Saturday night. If you are interested in coordinating this, please contact the event team at (email omitted) or (email omitted).
If your group or guild is interested in hosting a fundraising lunch on Saturday, please contact the event team at (email omitted) or (email omitted).

***So that all are aware, no animals besides service animals will be permitted on site. This is a prohibition of the site's owners and we will therefore be strictly enforced.***
NEW: Please be aware that the location of the event has changed slightly, rather than being in the horse arena, we will be across the way in a large grassy field. This will afford us more space and better parking. We will still have access to the small log cabin for classes and meetings.
Please be aware that space around the list field will be reserved for period encampments. Space nearby will be available for modern tents and RVs.
Site fee will be $15 for individuals over the age of seventeen, $10 for those age ten to seventeen, and free for those under ten. The non-member surcharge will be $5. The family cap will be $50.
NEW: If you wish to set up a merchant booth, please contact Caitriona, our merchant coordinator, at (email omitted).
NEW: Please be aware that the Palmer Fairgrounds fall under the taxing authority of the City of Palmer.

***Don't forget the Nifty Nine Largess Derby to collect largesse for Their Highnesses! To enter the Derby bring nine items of a single type (e.g. nine pieces of trim, nine note cards, nine balms, nine sewing kits, etc.) tagged with your name and group. One item from each entry will be entered into a prize pool and the other eight will be provided to Their Highnesses and Their heirs to distribute as largesse. Everyone who enters will be given a chance to pick an item from the prize pool, and an additional prize will be given to the Derby winner.***
