Our venerable Defenders need to rest their aged bones, and pass on their responsibilities to a younger generation of spry warriors ready to defend and further the glory of our beloved barony. We have been tasked with providing a proper forum for deciding who is worthy of such an honour. And so we decree a tournament, nay, not just one, but three glorious opportunities to prove your mettle and worth.

This is an absolutely beautiful camping site, so we hope to see you all.  We will be fighting for the Caer Galen Defender titles, but all are welcome who want to fight, play, relax, and have a good time with friends. There will be activities for parents to do with their kids—scavenger hunt, archery tourney, etc. 

 We will also have a donation BBQ dinner Saturday night.  You are welcome to bring a side dish or dessert to share, we will provide hamburgers/tofo-burgers and hotdogs.   There will also be a breakfast provided either Saturday or Sunday morning.

There is a water tap on site and vault toilets.  Woohoo, we’re camping in style!

Bring lots of sunscreen, hats, power-lounging chairs, good shoes if you want to go hiking, and your fun selves!!

Site is discreetly wet.
