All prizes are being donated. If you would like to help offset the cost these donations require, please email the Event Steward. Also, we are asking all MODs to please bring along a token or small prize they can award to the fencer who does whatever they deem worthy of their reward :)
Please do not bring pavilions as you will not be allowed to set it up. The City requires an involved event planning process which includes the fire department if pavilions (or any "structures") will be part of an event and we chose not to do that this time (if this is successful though we will do it next year for sure!). There are some trees at the edges of the open grass area, as well as closer to the playground so we can set up seats, etc. in the shade there. Commercially manufactured shade structures smaller than 20'x20' are also allowable per the City but MUST be staked down.
