Raptor War    Aug. 24-26
Good day, travelers! As the fine weather of Artemisian summer encourages you to voyage to the far reaches of our Kingdom, and beyond, you are welcome to break your wandering in Arn Hold, at Journey to Raptor War. Alongside our mighty snakelike river will be a safe haven for travelers of all types and times, whether you be pilgrim, soldier, merchant, explorer, or on the run. The days will be filled with activities for all interested travelers and the nights with revelry! Feel free to travel light with victuals, as Saturday the 25th, a sale of beef in the Hamburg(er) style for $5 (tax included) will raise funds for the keeping of our Moose Herds.

Site: Niagara Springs State Park, 2131 Niagara Springs Road, Wendell, Idaho. Site opens at 2 pm on Friday, August 24th, and everybody needs to be off site by noon on Sunday, August 26th. Individuals staying after noon on the 26th may be charged extra fees by the Park. The site is wet, there is onsite water, and some shade. Pets are allowed as long as they are supervised by their humans.

Fees: Raptor War 2018 has a $13.00 SCA Adult Event Registration fee for the weekend (tax included). The SCA Adult Member Discount Event Registration fee is $8. Make checks payable to SCA Inc., Barony of Arn Hold.

Additional Fees: In addition, the State of Idaho will be charging both an entry fee of $5.00 per vehicle and $10.60 per tent per day, for the use of the park. You can save yourself some money by purchasing an Idaho Parks Pass, for $10 at your local DMV. This pass allows you free access (no park entry fee) to all state parks for the entire year. The SCA Site Fee and Park Tent Camping fees will still apply (see fee structure examples at the end of this announcement).

Directions: Address is 2131 Niagara Springs, Wendell, Idaho 83355. Make your best way to Interstate 84 and Exit 157 Wendell, Idaho. Exit and head south five miles on Rex Leland HWY to Bob Barton road. Continue south to the Canyon rim, head down on Niagara springs road, and follow the road north past the fish hatchery to Niagara Springs State park.

In an effort to keep the event costs to a bare minimum we have elected to have attendees pay the Park fees at the entrance directly to the State of Idaho Parks and Recreation as they arrive. While this is atypical for an SCA event we are doing this to allow our friends to keep their expenses to minimum if they so desire.

Newcomer's Celebration    November 3rd
Friends of old and newcomers all, we would like to invite you to join the Barony of Arn Hold at Hope Lutheran Church on November 3rd to for a Newcomers Celebration! With our harvest successfully brought in before the winter snows, it's a perfect time celebrate the bounty of our fields and welcome newfound friends to the Barony.

This event will allow our fighters to fight outdoors once last time before the cold arrives, and our artisans to teach classes and learn new skills so that we may all have entertainment during the long, dark nights to come. We have a wide range of classes planned, including Courtly Graces, SCA 101, Fiber Dyeing, Dancing, Beginning Spinning, Beginning Scribal Arts and How to become an Authorized Fighter (both Heavy and Rapier), a Blacksmithing Demonstration, and many more!

We will also have three fundraisers - a Luncheon and a Garb Sale to raise money for the Baronial General Fund and a Dessert Auction to provide for the repair of the Baronial Thrones. As an addition to the Luncheon there will be a Populace's Choice cooking competition - a prize given to whomsoever brings the tastiest non-dessert food (period recipes are encouraged).

Finally, we would like to have a food drive to support Hope Lutheran's food pantry - attendees are encouraged (but not required) to bring a non-perishable food item to help us fill the food pantry before the holiday season. (As an extra incentive - everyone who donates food will receive $1 off the site fee.)

Please note, the site hosts AA meetings, so the site is completely dry - there is no alcohol allowed in the building.
