I actually played with this question a few years ago; I doubt the numbers
have changed that much. The geographic center of Ansteorra is a little
sough of Elfsea, near the mundane town of Glen Rose. I figured this out by
taking a 2" ring and a bunch of thumbtacks and rubber bands. Get a regional
map, put a thumbtack in for each group, then hook the rubber bands between
the ring and the thumb tacks. The ring ended up just east of Glen Rose.

Well, if we build any kind of castle or great hall onsite, it would be a
natural for groups like Amptgard or the High Fantasy Society. If it's just
a generic semi-primitive camping area, then the black powder and Civil War
folks could use it as well. (Remember the Coronation a couple of years ago
in Oklahoma, where we were at a castle north of town, and the Civil War
folks were having a battle south of town? Talk about culture shock!)
