Event Reminder - Roxbury Mill Country Fair

Poster: dskully@hns.com

We'd like to remind everybody to join us this weekend in the Shire of
Roxbury Mill for our Country Fair. Children - bring your families,
students, bring your friends.

The site fee is a budget-friendly $3.00 per head with a $12.00 family
There's no feast, but we have a non-alchoholic tavern whose profits benefit
of our deserving SCA Charities. Which one? You decide. If you buy
you get a vote. The charity with the most votes gets the donation.

We'll be playing croquet, bocce, and CAMBOK!!! We'll be competing -
children and (vs?) adults - in period field games and we'll have a 'game
room' off of the tavern. There's limited covered space for blanket
merchants and we encourage musicians and entertainers to join us and
entertain passers by. If there's enough interest, we'll build a bonfire
after dark and dance and sing and celebrate Midsummer's Night a little
The site opens at 11:00 AM on Saturday and is wet - but we MUSTN'T leave
bottles laying around the field - flat tractor tires will upset the farmer
who has loaned us her land. Current weather report is partly cloudy and 79
degrees. Fairway setup is Friday evening (or Saturday morning if you can be
done before 10AM - 30% chance of T-storms on Friday). We don't have to
leave until we want to. Shade is at a premium so bring your own. Water must
be transported a short distance so water jugs would also be convenient to
have handy. We're trying to keep things period so please help us out by
bringing cooler covers, etc. Contact the Autocrat: Aurora Astore (Dawn
Skully) at 301-540-8697 or at dskully@hns.com if you wish to camp or if you
need space on the Fairway - We encourage Artisans, Entertainers, and
Merchants to come so we can have a big, fun, Fairway! We look forward to
your company at the Fair.
GET A MAP. Find your best way to I-270 in Maryland. Take Rt 118S (toward
Germantown). Rt 118 zigs to the left at a light at Wisteria Drive (4th
light, I
think) and then to the right at the next light so be careful. Drive through
light at Clopper Rd/Rt. 117 (unless, of course, it's red) and travel
quarter to half mile. The site - Phillips Farm - will be on the right. If
you've gone as far as Riffleford Rd, you've gone too far. Turn around and
back, we'll be waiting for you.
