Request for Letters of Intent for Champions

Greetings Good People of Aquaterra,

For the upcoming Champion’s event, to be held on the weekend of August 24th, we would like to receive Letters of Intent from the entrants in all disciplines.
The Letter of Intent can be delivered to us prior to the event or when the entrants present themselves in morning Court.

We will call up the entrants for each discipline to present themselves to us and to those present.
We will award extra points to those who make use of period techniques, make use of excellent creativity, or entertain in the execution of their Letter of Intent.

We will allow entrants from outside the Barony as long as they intend to carry out the duties of a Champion should they be successful in claiming that title.

We look forward to seeing a grand turn-out of entrants to show off the skills of our populace and neighboring friends.

 - Baron Bryson & Baroness Angharad

Site Description

This site is a flat, open field about 25 acres in size.

There will be a dumpster on site. It belongs to the site owners and we have permission to use it for the event. Please be conservative and considerate.

Well-behaved furry family members are welcome on site! Please be aware of potential fleas and ticks in the area.
Island County requires proof of rabies vaccination to be at hand. This means collar tags or paper proof of vaccination.

Smoking in designated areas only. No smoking allowed in camps or in the field due to fire risk.

Alcohol - This site is discreetly wet. No underage drinking; use period containers; be discreet; enjoy responsibly. Remember we are guests.

There is no electrical power. There is very limited cell service.

There is potable water on site. It is recommended you bring drinking water, but we will have access to water (hose) during this event. 

If you're fighting or otherwise active, you may need much, much more water than usual.  Here is a custom water consumption calculator

Weather.com is predicting 80 degree weather for the weekend!

Encouraging a new way to reference RV campers that isn't as offensive as the current terminology.

The An Tin Clan

RVs, you are boondocking. 
There are no water or power hookups, although there is a hose for adding more potable water to the tank.
