Dominion of the Unconquered Sun and the Midwest Dagorhir Union are proud to announce that Gates of Summer 8 will be held on April 14-17th in our usual camp-out in Holden Missouri.
Myself and Sir Logan Moore of Lyonnesse are heading up this event and we've got some exciting ideas already in the works. Pre-registration will be open ASAP (I'm shooting for before October but the best laid plans of mice and orks ya know...)
UPDATE: It's been said later in the thread but minimum garb WILL
be enforced at this event. All heralds will be on the look-out for it, and you will be kicked off the field until you have passing garb. I know for a fact that several people are bringing spud garb to loan/sell for cheap though so even if you show up to the event with nothing you'll have opportunities to get that fixed right on the sidelines.
SECOND UPDATE: Alright folks, update on the website is that....the website is in limbo due to hosting company stupidity. So if you want to pre-register (And saving money is always a plus) shoot an email over to Dominion@dagorhir.com
and we will email you the form and the address to send check/money order payments to. Bonus: If you pre-register, you're saving $5, which can then be put towards the feast on Saturday (Which is going to be delicious I promise). This means that if you pre-register and buy the feast you're only paying $20, which is the same price as showing up and paying at troll.
Why wouldn't you want to do this?
