FAQ FOR LAND ALLOCATION CAMP ORGANIZERS at ESTRELLA WAR
1.As the Camp Organizer / Group Representative what do I need to do?
A)Send to the land committee the group registration form. On this form you
will indicate a group name in which your members will use to identify their
group. This name must be consistent and accurate as it is the basis in
which land is allocated.
B)Promote pre-registration of your members! Pre-registration = more land.
C)Read and understand the land policy and the FAQ for attendees. Field the
questions of your members that concern them. Should you be unable to answer
these questions you may inquire directly to the Estrella Land Staff for
D)Watch the website for pre-registration totals for your group and confirm
that your group is getting pre-registered as you expect.
E)Visit the website before the war (within 30 days) to learn of your groups
F)Arrive on site before anyone else in your camp and with a plan to lay out
G)Arrange your camp according to reason, tradition, and customs of your
group within the space allotted.
H)Choose at least one assistant that can help people find where they are to
pitch their tent(s) when you are not in camp.
2.My group has a large tent (kitchen, common area, etc
.) How do I get land
for this purpose?
There will be 225 square feet allocated for each pre-registered adult in the
camp. The land not used by these individuals can be granted (with
consideration) to private and public space within the group.
3.My group wants to camp next to a particular group(s).
Arrange with that group to unite your land allocation, and divide it fairly
at the war. Both of your groups must use the same group name on
pre-registration forms. This land policy is very flexible. If an entire
Kingdom wished, they could unite their entire land allocation and divide
this very large tract according to their own design.
4.My group has fewer than 20 members yet we still want to participate in the
land allocations (as opposed to overflow camping).
Unite with another group and make arrangements to divide the allotted land
between your groups. The 20-person provision has been set to make the
administration of land allocation feasible.
5.How will land be allocated in relation to Kingdoms?
The site will be grouped into regions delineated by the principle Kingdoms.
On the group pre-registration form you will indicate the region that your
group wishes to camp in. It need not be the same as your home Kingdom.
6.What if our Group doesnt show up when the gate opens on Wednesday?
If your group is not present when the gates open on Wednesday, that is fine.
All of the Allocated Lands will be held for the various groups until
Friday Noon (unless other arrangements have been made with the Land
7.What if there are people in our group that dont pre-register?
If there are people in your group that do not wish to pre-register the
burden now falls to the group to either suck it up and make room for them
or they will have to camp in the overflow.
8.Do I need to collect all of my groups pre-war registrations fees?
No, individuals pre-register directly to the Estrella War.
9.What if people join our Group after pre-registration closes; can we still
get land for them?
You or your Group may purchase extra War membership ahead of time in
anticipation of people joining after pre-registration (or finding out that
they can get time off of work) and then transfer it to the individual before
the war or at the front gate.
10.Can our group buy extra land?
As above, you or your group may purchase extra War memberships ahead of
time. The additional portion of land stays with your group. This can be
utilized to provide land for large pavilions, dog kennels, large kitchens,
or other luxury uses of space. If your group registers an excessive
amount of land in ratio to your attendance, you will be required to justify
the use of space.
11.How can I buy more land?
You can choose to register yourself more than once. You can also upgrade
children and youth by paying the higher amount, but please give actual birth
date information for all minors. We need accurate information for waivers
and youth tokens. The payment made will define the land allotment. A
minors birth date will define tokens and waivers assigned.
