Only Days Until Battlemoor!
Just a few last bits of information.
As of now we are still under Stage I Fire Restrictions which state: no
campfires, coal or wood burning stoves or broilers. Please do not bring
candles or any type of wood or charcoal fire pit. NO fireworks! Smoking is
allowed only in vehicles & enclosures or in individual camps provided cigarette
butts are placed in a sand filled receptacle ("butt can") or inside a
closed container/ashtray and the camp has a fire extinguisher. Do Not throw
cigarette butts on the ground! Anyone doing so will be asked to leave the site.
Exemptions: mechanical stoves & appliances fueled by bottled gas which
allow the operator to control or extinguish the flame with a valve (On-off
switch! and must be attended at all times). A fire extinguisher must be
available at each camp using such a device.
At present, we have permission to have a fire in the fire pit in Town Hall
each night as well as for the period kitchen & forge.
Local Fire Restrictions are subject to change at any time prior to or
during the event. Look for posted fire warnings and observe them.
There is water on site but as this area is in a drought, please feel free
to bring some!
Please check the web site for descriptions of activities, schedule &
directions. Also note the link to the beautiful site map. Shires & households
are not indicated on the map unless there is a Battlemoor activity scheduled
there, but there are plenty of reference points to navigate by. All camp
arrangements that have been made with the site staff are on the master
reference map. Hospitality staff will help you find your camp space when you
arrive on site.
The site owners have a snack bar on site: breakfast burritos, sweet rolls,
misc. snack food & drinks and a daily special for lunch & early dinner.
According to Intellicast: temperatures in Rye, CO are predicted to be 50s
- 80s (more or less) with humidity in the 30% range (again, more or less)
and wind 14-16mph. Pretty much the same thing for Walsenburg, CO except
it'll be about 10 degrees warmer. There is a slight chance of a rain shower on
Saturday of the event.
As this site is a working ranch, a shovel/rake would not be a bad thing to
have on hand, drink lots of water, don’t forget sunscreen, prepare to have
a lot of fun!
Can’t wait to see you there!
