Some of you may know, but for those hearing of this for the first time, for the
last several months we here in Northkeep have been working on a fort project to
be built at the Will Rogers Scout Camp. It was I who brought the initial
proposal to Baron, Baroness and the Offices of the Barony of Northkeep. It was
approved by them and with their permission I sent a formal proposal to the
Cimmaron Council, which in turn was approved by them.
The materials being used are privacy fence panels that are prefabricated and
commonly found at building supply stores. These will be reinforced to with stand
the rigors of armored combat and Boy Scouts. The fort, when complete, will be
64' X 64' with 6 1/2' crenelated walls. There will be a 12' wide main gate and
two 4' wide sallie gates. The crenelations will be approximately 2' wide and
18" deep in the wall and spaced approximately 2' apart along the walls.
The Barony of Northkeep is funding all of the poles, main gate and the first 2
1/4 wall section on either side of the main gate. This leaves 26 wall sections
that any individual or group can provide the funds for. For this donation the
wall section materials will purchased, assembled and installed. Also a plaque
will be added to the inside of that wall section that will read; "This portion
of this fort was made possible by: (Name or Group)". If you wish to participate
in this project the cost will be $60.00. This is for all of the materials needed
to assemble a wall section.
The first step to become part of this project is to send me an email letting me
know you intend to donate funds for a section. Send this to
bolverk187 at yahoo.com. You will be put on the list in the order received. You
will then have two weeks in which to get the funds to me. A check or money
order is the preferred method of payment. Once received, I will send an email to
has a receipt. Please place in the memo section Fort Project. Should I not
receive the funds in the allotted time you will be taken off the list and the
first person on the waiting list will take your place. Assuming there is a
You may send payment to:
4215 W 1st St
Tulsa, OK 74127
I am happy to report that as of now all of the poles have all been set and the
assembly process of Northkeep's wall sections and gate have begun. They will be
installed when complete.
Please note this is a donation to the Scout Camp. The fort will be the property
of the camp when done and be one more feature available to those the use the
site for events.
Please pass this on to any list you feel appropriate.
