On behalf of Barons Elliott and Raffaelle, Main Autocrats of Estrella
War XIX, Greetings to the members of the List:
First, the reason for the long information drought is that the Crown,
(Past and Present) the Kingdom Financial Committee, Thegn Nootka and
the Autocrats were intensely busy securing the site for Estrella XIX.
That site will be Estrella Mountain Park.
The main Schnepf Farms War Site is now unavailable and the site
offered on the remainder of Schnepf Farms property was,
unfortunately, inadequate for our needs.
Estrella Mountain Park was inadequate under the previous conditions,
which was the reason for the move to Schnepf Farms. The "New and
Improved" agreement with Estrella Park gives us the entire park and
control of the Park during the War. Areas formerly set aside for
mundane use are now part of the War site, with even more land to be
grassed in the future. This gives us adequate space and some growth
There will be adequate parking at the Rodeo Arena, with a shuttle
running between the main camp and the parking lots during the day,
and transport to the parking lots at night. Parking at campsites for
the purpose of loading and unloading will be allowed.
The Rodeo Arena will also provide horse facilities for the
Equestrians. A caretaker lives at the Rodeo Arena, providing further
security for both cars and horses.
Archery will be located at the Baseball fields.
Merchants' Row will be centrally located.
Park Police Officers will be on duty 24 hours a day througout the War
with supplemental security provided by the Kingdom Sheriff's Office.
As time marches forward (and there is something to announce) regular
announcements will be posted here to the Estrella War Announcements
A FAQ is being prepared for posting on the Estrella War Website:
Otherwise, I will serve as the main point
of War communications at: exec@...
And finally, please remember that the Estrella War can't happen
without your help. We will be needing volunteers throughout the War,
and for setup and breakdown. If everyone puts in two hours, our cup
In service I remain,
Alianora da Lysharet
Executive Assistant, Estrella War XIX
