It will be held at Loveland Castle in Loveland Ohio

We will be having period camping and modern camping but the sites
will be seperated to allow for groups to do photo shoots of their
period camps.

We would like to work on combat training, LH displays, and crafts.
We will have a RTT in attendance so assessment are a possibility

The event will be a learning atmosphere. The setting will allow
groups to do photo shoots of their members in and around a Castle.

of thing and fruits for a communal lunch. For dinner Saturday night

Greetings all:

The time has come for final counts for the event. Below is a
registration form. If you plan to attend the event please fill it
out and return to ragna@avikingwife.com on or before July 31,
2006. A final count and registration is necessary to be submitted
for insurance reasons.

The who's, what's, when's and where's are here:
http://www.theeinherjarlsg.com/ as well as some more tidbits below.

Grocery Store: There is a Meijer's as well as a WalMart Super
Store on the way to the castle, maybe 15-20 minutes before you reach
your destination.

Public: There will be Boy Scouts at the castle on Friday night and
a wedding reception on Saturday, so there will be some public
about.

Parking: The number in attendance will dictate the parking. If we
have as many come as have voiced interest to this point, we will be
setting up a drop off gear and then park at Meijer's down the road
and be shuttled back to the castle. I hope this is the case! If
not, we will be directly parking per the facilities direction and
availability.

Thanks! And looking forward to seeing you all there!

Ragna
