My appologies, I posted that message while in a rush trying to get
too many things acomplished at once, and forgot to include important
details... Border Raids is as the name implies, a border skirmish
between the Midrealm, and Meridies. It is held at the end of June,
and is being held at Camp Carlson near Fort Knox, Elizibeth Town Ky.
This year it is being hosted by the Midrealm.
traditional activities include:
Heavy weapons combat (imagine that... a war with heavy fighting<G>)
usualy thrown weapons compition as well
camp to camp party hopping for those interested
midrealm and meridian courts
and general socializing.
I am including a URL of the border raids website so you can find more
detailed information as needed.
hope to see some of you there.
