A couple of notes about our limitations with these various sites. 
*Please bring your own seating for the park. Pop up shades are permitted as long as they are secured by weights and not stakes. No staking will be allowed at the park. Our staff is going to arrive especially early to claim an area under the shade trees to provide the maximum amount of comfort for our guests. 
*The feast meats of chicken and sausage will be provided as a part of your site fee. We will have several volunteers providing grills or smokers that we can help prepare a variety of tasty treats for anybody who wishes to participate. Please, we invite you to fill in the feast with potluck sides. Things that go well at such feasts include bread, tarts, cheeses, charcuterie, pickles, savory spreads, and much more. Consider contributing to the greater feast by bringing either a side dish, a loaf of bread, or a flat of water. Offboarding is absolutely acceptable, should you have specific dietary needs or wish to maintain COVID protocols for your table and guests. 
*Please plan to bring your own feast gear. If you have extra few gear that a newcomer or a return member might be able to borrow, please consider bringing it as well. Plan ahead and bring some bags for you to carry home you dirty dishes as we will not have access to the kitchen sinks. 
*We will need vacuum cleaners for the final clean up at the shrine, so if anybody is willing to bring their vacuum cleaner to use, that would be much appreciated. In this case many vacuums really does make light work.

Testimonials

My 1st Grand Outlandish was in 1982. I was 10 years old and the page of Lord Olaf Bearcrusher. I camped with Rolling Thunder, attended a feast of venison on Crimson Hill, and saw my first King and Queen.  Although I took a break until 1986, that first Outlandish was the thing that burned the love of the SCA into me. The memory of that event is what brought me back. Since then, although I haven’t attended all of them, I’ve been to many Grand Outlandishes, and have more great memories than I can count. I received my AoA at this great event, on the morning after losing my guido at (then) Count Johann’s knighting vigil. I’ve had the honor of being the Lord of Outlandish twice, and also received my Pelican at a Grand Outlandish. Far greater than any of these honors, in my mind, I carry the memories of amazing wild parties the likes of which I’ve not seen since, feats of knightly valor, incredible drums and dancing, incomparable service and sacrifice, fun and laughter, some profoundly terrible weather, and through it all, good times spent with good friends. Outlandish is truly a hallmark of the Outlands! It continues because of all of the history it represents, and will continue because of all the memories that are yet to be.

Events are ephemeral, their existence fading into memory a soon as we pack camp. This transient nature reminds me of Farts. Like the passing of wind it is far more pleasant to smell one’s own odor than those of others. Sure the weather is probably going to stink. Sure someone is going to turn an ankle or get dehydrated (ahem) and that stinks. Yes, you will come home with Outlandish boogers in your nose. 

I’ve been to Pennsic it stinks in a hot, sticky and moist way. I’ve been to Great Western War it literally stinks of manure. 

So, Outlandish? Sure some of it will stink but, it’s a homegrown funk. It’s  OUR STINK!

And it’s stinkin’ grand!
