DESCRIPTION
===========
Since the passing of the Tudor reign, the Tudor masses have been left wanting for
the genteel art of hunting. Thankfully for said masses, rumours abound that the
Lithgovian panther, the foul beast said to haunt the Western fringes of the Shire of
Dismal Fogs, continues to roam, and so we shall meet there for a weekend of
hunting! There shall be archery in abundance! Tourneys both heavy and rapier if the
masses do will! Arts and sciences, and in particular, puppetry! And of course
excellent Tudor feasting and good company to be had by all.

This event is held at Maranatha, in Lidsdale, just past Lithgow NSW. Site opens 3pm
Friday, closes 3pm Sunday.

Accommodation for this event is in dorm style rooms, accommodating from 3 to 7
people in each, on a first in, first served basis. Camping is also available on
site, please specify when booking if you intend to camp.

Similarly,please notify the Steward or when booking of any special dietary
requirements, thank you.
