Feast of thirty

Feast of the Thirty
May 14-16, 1999

    Once again we all gather on the field for fighting and feasting as the Canton of Falcon Cree hosts Feast of  the Thirty.   This year Aaron Forrestor, our  kitchen steward, creates another fine feast.  And this is his 10th year of doing this Feast, so he has some experience and will be pulling out all the stops.  But remember this feast sells out early and the only made reservation is a paid reservation.  If you want a guaranteed place at feast, send in your reservation NOW. 
There will be much activity so you can burn off the calories in advance.  For Heavy weapons fighters, we will have 3 tournaments - belted, non-belted and ladies.  There will also be a Duello and Archery competitions.  We will have period gaming classes during the day- come and learn.  Or, better yet, come and teach!  A&S categories will be: Hairstyles, hats, and headpieces and Period games (card, board, ball, what-have-you).
After feast we will offer Viking wrestling and drumming by the lake for those who can still do anything that strenuous after such a feast.  And for those of us more sedentary, there will be a bardic circle and gaming hall in the feast hall so you can practice what youve learned in the gaming class.  So join us for a day of fun and feast.

The cost is a mere pittance for the amount of fun in the offing:
On board, on site - 16.00
On board, off site - 14.00 
Off board, on site -7.00
Day trip - 5.00
Accommodations- Cabins with 2-4 bunks per cabin. Cabin space is limited and will be assigned.  If you have a group we need to know how many and the amount before you get a reservation.  Please try and send in group reservations en masse.  No phone reservations can be accepted.

The site is very discreetly wet- no original containers visible on site.  We are requesting you keep to the Enchanted Ground tradition. Cars cannot be parked except in the parking areas and must be removed from the fighting field area well before the Tourney begins at 10am. Pets will be allowed only if leashed and under the direct control of a responsible adult.  The site is Camp York in Kings Mountain State Park. Directions:   
>From the South: Take your best route to I-85 just north of the SC-NC state line.  Take exit #2 (Kings Mountain National Military Park). Go South (right turn) on 216 through  the Military Park to Kings Mountain State Park. Turn right at the sign marked organized camps  (entrance next to Natural History Farm). At the Y bear right to Camp York. From the North: Take your best route to I-85 in North Carolina just South of Charlotte. Take Exit #8 (Kings Mountain).  At top of ramp turn left. When the road comes to a fork, bear right. Stay on this road for about 7 miles until you see a small field with a split fence on the right hand side. Turn right  after the fence into the entrance of Kings Mountain State Park. (There is a package goods store  on the left of this T intersection.)
