I respectfully request that no camps be "lined" or "outlined" with any deadfall or cut pieces from any type or tree. Untreated wood will attract fire ants, termites, and copperheads that like to lurk under wood piles and such...(looking for mice you know...and peoples hands and feet...! Just sayin'...). Make sure that any stacks of firewood are off the ground for the same reasons...
Please remember that when the big shredders are used to cut the site they are 15 feet wide. In the more open camping areas do not block access of the large machines. Either mark the trees (non-invasive...no nails, bolts, hooks...etc.) that surround your camp or is treated posts/poles at the corners and/or next to the trees. You can paint the posts with your livery colors, put eyebolts in the posts...etc... Just do not block the ranch machinery from access in order to mow... Best case scenario would be to space any posts and/or tree perimeter markers at least 16' to 18' apart.
Thank you for you time and consideration in these important matters.
Wæs Þu Hæl in TroÞ and FriÞ...!
Your good neighbor and wandering Knight...

Greetings to all in our fair Barony,
Weekend warriors is what we were yesterday! Several people showed up to help with the dead fall around the site. The weather was very nice, cloudy and foggy at first. The sun barely peaked through a few times. We want to thank Rosalia, Berengaria, Billy, VNV, DSD, Erich, Klar, Eagan, Erich, Charles (Drew) and Plachoya who came out to help. The dreaming tree has been cut up into smaller pieces thanks to Billy and VNV and their trusty chain saws. The student guild wants the smaller cut pieces to line their camp site and they will move them when they get a crew out there to do so. The rest will make some nice firewood etc. for those who wish to claim it and move it. We also removed a large tree top behind the kitchen area. Rosalia sprayed poison ivy and weed eated the bardic area and parts of the B&B camp. Erich and his crew mowed and cleaned up their area behind the wooden fence that is their camp spot. We had a great luncheon in shifts because of some members leaving for work and others coming at different times to help. All in all it was a successful day and we will wish for that nice weather in August when we begin Defender sprucing up. Again thanks to all of our members who came out to help. We really appreciate the hard work.
Our Autocrat , who has yet to be named, will set the other work days for Defender. We set June 30 as the deadline for autocrat warrant but because of paperwork that needs to be started soon, it would be nice to have someone sooner. The Black Star article and equestrian insurance needs to be completed sooner than later. Also some of our members have to put in for days off way in advance and they need to request that asap so they may possible get these days off.
