War College and Wargy

Friday February 3rd, 2017 to Sunday February 5th, 2017
Tres Pinos, California
Due to weather conditions beyond our control, I am sad to announce that the Wargy/War Collegium will not be held at the KHTI site in Catheys Valley. The revised location is Bollado Park/Tres Pinos
I apologize for the short notice, but after discussions with KHTI, the decision has been made that due to unsafe conditions on the site made by just wet weather, we can not hold the event there this weekend. The ground is just too muddy and they are expecting upwards of 2" of rain before Saturday which will only make it worse.
This is not our usual weather pattern year, probably the wettest we have seen in over a decade.
Improvements will be made to the site prior to Beltane so that this issue will not happen again.
Our backup site for this event, Napa Skyline Park, is also too muddy at the moment to camp at. We are looking for alternatives and any suggestions you may have about a last minute site would be appreciated.
I would like to thank the autocrats, James and Kelsey for all the work they have put into the event and it is my hope that we can find some alternative place for them to run the event.
Please spread the word to everyone you know about this announcement and I will be posting it to as many forums as I can.
Once again, I apologize for the lateness of this post and hope that we can work together to come up with a viable solution in the next day.

WARGY COLLEGE!! The West Kingdom's War College and Wargy Combined! Yes, this year War College and Wargy are combining their "forces" to make this one EPIC event to break in KHTI's new property!!
War College on Saturday will be full of fantastic classes, both combat and non-combat, taught by the best and brightest from all over the known world! Then it will all be put in practice with group maneuvers. Saturday night we will all convene at the Tavern for a pot luck dinner, mercenary auction, and video review of the happenings of the day! There will also be a bardic tournament, PUNderdome ! Two puns enter, one pun leaves. This will be a bear pit-style pun showdown to the populace's applause (or groans).
Sunday is WARGY!! This is a resurrection WAR. The field will be laid out, roughly in the shape of the bay area and divided out to the groups who reserve a slice of territory to defend. At the end of the day, the group that holds the most treasure chests wins!
Each group who wishes to hold their own piece of the kingdom MUST have their commander RSVP to the Wargy event steward, Kelsy, by midnight Jan 13th 2017. Locations will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. They must also bring the following things to the event:
* Troops, hired or native - each team must have a min of 5 fighters.
* A war banner.
* A treasure chest filled with fortunes worthy of the "pride" of the group.
* Payment if you wish to hire troops!!
* War support by supplying the equivalent of at least 1 all-day marshal, and 1 all day support staff - gate work/ hydration support etc., broken up however you wish.
The WARGY Commanders will meet Sunday morning with the MIC at 9:15 am. Listen up will be at 9:30 am SHARP. The war will start at 10 am on the dot and go for a maximum of 3 hours.
Not attached to a group or RSVP? No problem, mercenaries are period!! Saturday night groups with reservations will have the opportunity to vie for your services.
Rapier, Archery, and Thrown Weapons... Oh My!!!! The answer is yes!!
