A Site Now Seen

Let's talk a bit about our new site, shall we?
The Schaghticoke fairgrounds is a 35+ acre site located in Schaghticoke, NY. The Shire of Glenn Linn has graciously agreed to allow the Barony of Concordia of the Snows to hold Wars of the Roses here. We're all very excited about this new site!

The Fairgrounds has ample land for camping, fighting, fencing, archery, family activities, and all of the other wonderful activities Roses has to offer.

There is a wonderful little stage in the central park area for Commedia and bardic activities. There are 3 sets of centrally located bathrooms on site. Two of these have multiple coin-operated shower stalls ($0.25 for 5 minutes).
We all know the weather on Memorial Day weekend can be unpredictable at best. In addition to all of this wonderful land, the Fairgrounds has ample indoor space. Should the weather turn south, we will be able to move nearly all activities under shelter. (Sorry, archers.)

Better still, should Mother Nature do her worst, we will be able to CAMP 
INDOORS! That's right! There are many buildings with dirt floors, able to accommodate indoor camping. We will be able to set up our tents and still have protection from the weather. 

So, regardless of what happens with the weather, firm up those plans and come camp with us at Wars of the Roses! Remember, there's a pretty nice discount for early registration! If you have additional questions about camping or site amenities, please contact our co-autocrat, Lord Joel of Vestfell
