The Cheese Farmers' Harvest Festival
Mar 18, 2000
After decades of research and experimentation, the Cheese Farmers
of Ostgardr are proud to announce that their first crop has come in!
You are invited to join the celebration, which will be held at the
Unitarian Fellowship of Huntington, 109 Browns Rd., Huntington
NY on March 18, 2000, from 11 AM to 10 PM.
In keeping with the spirit of the day, there will be a great assortment
of cheesy activities and entertainment. Fighters can enter the
Viceroy's Handicap Tourney, for example. Armor inspection (to
make sure your armor isn't too cheesy) begins at noon, which is also
when the archery range opens. Merchants are more than welcome
to come and sell their not necessarily cheesy wares.
The Big Cheese for the festival is Richard the Poor of Ely The
cheesy feast, featuring all the cheese you can handle, will be
prepared under the direction of Lady Andrea MacIntire. Special
dietary needs (except possibly allergies to cheese) will be
considered if you let us know about them by March 1.
If you have reservations about the Festival, send them to Do�a Ana
Ravaya de Guzman (Ana Areces, P.O. Box 134, New York NY,
10009, 718-230-1679 at reasonable hours). Make checks payable
to "SCA Inc. - Ostgardr". You'll be set back $12 for each on-board
spot and $6 for one of the few off-board spots. People under 12
years old get to be at the feast for half price (that's $6 on, $3 off). If
you just want to be there for the day's fun, you'll have to come up
with $3 - unless you're under 12, in which case it's free.
Take your best route to Route 110 North (off both the L.I.E.
and the Grand Central Parkway). Go North on Route 110
through Huntington Station to its intersectionwith Mill Dam
Road (it's a traffic light with a large boulder on the island on
the left. Jeff's Seafood is on the right). Make a left at this
intersection. Proceed to a T-intersection (West Shore Road).
Make a right, keeping the water on your right continue along
West Shore Road. As the road veers away from the water it
becomes Browns Road. Follow the road up the hill. The site
is 1/2 mile on the right.
Take the Long Island Railroad, Port Jefferson Branch to
Huntington Station, and take a cab to the site (Approx. $5
fare), or pre-arrange pickup. The last train home is 11:00 pm.
