At most SCA events you can register at the door. However, if you wait
you often can't get a feast spot and sometimes it is cheaper to pre-
register. As was mentioned the website for an event is usually the
best place to look for such information. After registration is closed,
it doesn't do any good to send in your money and information. You
might as well wait until you get to the gate. (Troll is such an ugly,
made-up word. bleech). Be aware that the gate may or may not accept
checks or credit cards. See the info on an event to know for sure. So
be prepared with cash if you are paying at the gate.
The amount of room that a group gets to use at Gulf Wars is determined
by the number of pre-registered people who indicate they will be
camping with that group. This means that a group may or may not let
you camp with them without a pre-registration. So you can still
register at Gulf Wars when you get there, but you may or may not get
to camp with the group you wanted to. There is usually space set aside
for those to camp who didn't pre-register with a particular group.
Most people will spend much of Saturday and Sunday packing to go home.
Years ago the packing started on Saturday night or Sunday, but the
last few years as the event itself got longer, people started shutting
down earlier. Grand Court which used to be on Saturday night recently
got moved to Friday night.
There are still a number of battles on both Friday and Saturday and
many classes. You probably do want to spend some time on Friday just
walking around the site, before people start disassembling their camps
and parking cars all over. Most merchants should still be open both
Friday and Saturday.
