Fields Of Valhalla/Overflow Camping at Estrella 17
- Good Gentles,
there has been some confusion regarding the Fields Of Valhalla (Overflow
Camping) at Estrella 17. The Autocrats wish to clarify...
Estrella17 Publication and Promotion Coordinator
Greeting Unto the Known World,
Recently a map of the Estrella War site was distributed by several means,
including print in the Southwind, Atenveldts' newsletter. It details
camping arrangements on the site as agreed to by the Principal Kingdoms.
The camping space north of the North Road is labeled "West Kingdom", and
"Atenveldt". This is an oversight and the section entitled "Atenveldt"
should be marked "Fields of Valhalla (overflow camping)" designating it as
camping available to anyone attending the war who wishes to use it. The
Fields of Valhalla are open to all.
While the camping space is not reserved for any group or Kingdom, this area
is under the stewardship of the Kingdom of Atenveldt and common camping
courtesies will be monitored by the War Autocrats, as is the entire site.
The following rules will apply:
1. Camping space is available on a first come first served basis.
2. The space is subject to reasonable use. All space must be used
efficiently and wisely and camp organizers must use good judgment and
cooperation in the planning of their camp. Some examples of
a. Though camp organizers can reserve space for people who have not yet
arrived, they may do so only based on an accurate count of people and tents
in their campsite. A good "guess" is not acceptable.
b. If there are three people in a camp and they have roped off space for
100, to arrive later, that could be considered a questionable use of space.
c. Organizers may not rope off a rectangle of space and fill the perimeter
or even the corners of the campsite first to "frame" the space.
d. Camps must be set up starting on one side of the expected parcel and fill
across. Too much space is wasted every year on large clearings in the center
3. The space cannot be claimed and/or roped off prior to 8 a.m. on Wednesday
at the war.
4. Take all the space you need, but please be considerate of others arriving
late at the war.
5. If the Autocrats determine that too much space is being wasted, they will
request that you tighten up your encampment. Failure to comply may be cause
for removal from the site with forfeiture of any fees paid.
The amount of camping space has significantly increased this year. We do
have plenty of camping space available, if it is not abused. Thank you very
much for your cooperation on this matter. All we ask is that you keep your
neighbors in mind when setting up your encampment in all areas of the site.
