The quiet din of open wilderness will be broken with laughter and learning, song and sword

The great minds and swords of the Company of St Martin's convene to teach their predilection for battle and tourney.  Dukes, Knights, Keepers, and all will disseminate the roles of Chivalry and the makings of a fighter.  Open sky on sun-lit spaces will grant freedom of form and movement to those seeking guidance in armored combat, rapier combat, and a consuming love for the Society for Creative Anachronism.

The power lounging on the other side of camp will break the sound barrier with Bardic tales and rollicking mirth.  Drystone and her host, the Shire of Drygestan, are known for Summer events of laid-back fun and revelry.  This year, she will offer a spectacular Middle Eastern Hafla on Saturday night, replete with ardent drumming and dancing.  Come for the camaraderie and stay for the shenanigans!

This is THE Summer event to be blithesome OR hone your fighting skills.

Site:  Wet

Pets:  US Forest Service specifies these pet rules: https://www.fs.usda.gov /recarea/santafe/recarea/?reci d=75926 

Parking:  TBD

Water:  Bring your own.  There is no water on site.

Trash:  Carry out all your trash.  Please leave it cleaner than you found it!  It is a primitive site, so everyone needs to remember to pack out all their own trash.  There will be no dumpster or trash service on site.  Thank you all for your cooperation.

Camping:  There are a ton of really great camping spots at this site.  There are a few areas, however, that have been reserved for certain groups (Royal, al-Barran, Fontaine, etc).  Please check with the map at gate for camping areas.

Fires:  Fire Danger as determined at the time by the US National Forest will determine whether Fires will be allowed on site.
