Our main objectives this year:  Educate the public about the Society for
Creative Anachronism. Present ourselves at our very best.  Entertain the
patrons.  Sign up new people to join our Society.  AND HAVE FUN.

The Festival is open 7 weekends from October 5 to November 17.  RAIN OR
SHINE.  The Festival begins at 9:00 a.m. each Saturday and Sunday and
closes at Dusk. 

Sign-in each morning at the SCA Compound with that weekend's Autocrat.

In order to receive a free pass participation in activities on the Battle
Mound or in the Compound are required.  Some of the options are:  At least
three (3) sessions on the Battle Mound at 10:00, 11:00, 3:00 or 4:00
fighting (light or heavy).  Four (4) sessions on the Battle Mound at the
previous listed times marshaling, water-bearing or performing crowd
control.  Three (3) hours doing arts & sciences demo in the compound. 
Other activities may be negotiated with the Liaison.  Choral, dance, and
musical groups are especially welcome.

All access to the site shall be through the "Participant's Entrance".  This
entrance is approx. 1/2 mile south of  the main gate.  If a blue parking
pass is enclosed, please display this pass on your rear-view mirror while
you are on site.  Absolutely no access/entrance is allowed through the
front gates on a participant's pass.

If you plan on sleeping in the Compound, you must have requested space in
advance.  There is very limited space in the buildings and this way you
will know in advance if you need to camp.

There is plenty of space for camping (we will be camping in our usual
spot).  Look for the SCA signs and roped off area at our camping site.  SCA
personnel will be providing security for the camping area during the day. 
However, please secure your values in a safe place.  Camping is permitted
Friday through Monday mornings.

Coleman style lanterns and stoves are acceptable.  Fires are prohibited: 
no candles, charcoal fires, bar-b-que pits or oil lanterns.  Garbage must
be bagged, tied and deposited at the Festival Dumpsters before leaving the

NO pets anytime, ever.

No unaccompanied Minors.

Quiet curfew is 11 PM.  Please try and keep the noise down after this time.

Ice will be provided in the compound.  Please bring your own drinks and
lunch items if you do not wish to purchase from the TRF Vendors.

At this time TRF is planning to offer a Saturday evening meal for a nominal
charge (I believe it was around $5.00 last year), you will need your
participant's pass in order to get in.  Because we will have weekend passes
this year, and SCA participants will be able to attend the TRF dinner, the
sponsoring group will not need to provide a meal Saturday evening in the

Pay phones are located at the entry gate to the Festival grounds and at all

There are flush toilets and hot showers for all participants use.

Hat and shoes must be worn at all times.  Please wear your best garb. 
Fighters, we request that you do not wear jeans, brightly colored modern
shoes (and this goes for everyone else), or blatantly modern armor (A
tabard will cover a multitude of sins!).  All attendees:  TRF requires that
"head coverings" be worn.  We not only want to have fun, but we would like
to encourage people to join our Society.  TRF policy states that Neon
colors, tie-dye or bright prints are inappropriate, as is Spandex.  Ultra
modern hairstyles or hair dyed unnatural colors are not permitted and must
be completely covered.  No watches in view of patrons and no sunglasses.

Feel free to play along anytime, have your picture taken with patrons if
they request it, and talk with the patrons during the day if you so chose.

A hand-out for 'Speaking the Part' is available.  It would be wonderful if
we could all try using these helpful tips for our speech throughout the
Festival and into our own events. 

We have been asked to participate in the Grand Parade at noon each day. 
Please let me know each morning if you are interested.

The Hospitaler from your group is in charge of the Information Booth on
your weekend.  They should have received information from the Kingdom
Hospitaler.  His office has volunteered to supply the information sheets
and handle the names of interested patrons.  

You need to park near the SCA camping area (which is near the water towers
behind the Archery Booth).  If you have any questions, please find someone
who has attended the Festival in past years--they will be able to tell you
where to park and how to enter the site through the hidden gates.

At this point SCA membership is not required this year.  Please pass the
word.  We would like as many SCA people as possible to participate.  

Seneschals or Autocrats--please provide the information requested and
e-mail it back to me.  Please e-mail all requests at least two weeks before
date of attendance, I will need enough lead time to mail the passes back to

If you have any questions you may contact the SCA/TRF Liaison:
