Our website is up (www.dagorhirragnarok.com
), and here is the official information about Ragnarok XXVII! I will be modifying this thread from time to time as new details become available.
Ragnarok will be held at Cooper's Lake Campground in Slippery Rock, PA, the week of June 17th-24th, 2012. The campground will be closed to mundanes for this week, giving us prime camping space which should allow for 50-75% of camps to have access to power hookups, and 100% of camps to have running water. There is no noise restriction / curfew. If you desire a camp in the quiet family area (no drumming or loud parties after 11PM) please indicate this in your registration.
Also, they are rebuilding the one lane bridge on Currie Rd., so if you normally come to Ragnarok via I-79 to Rt. 422, keep your eyes open for our detour signs. You will need to come past Currie Rd. on 422 to Rt. 19, then turn onto Hunt Rd -> Cooper Rd. -> Currie Rd. It adds 5-10 minutes to the total trip, but hopefully won't be too difficult to find.
Pre-Registration is available through June 1st. When registering, please indicate your character and unit name in your shipping information (billing information should be your mundane name and address).
New for this year is Saturday Pre-reg. The ONLY WAY you will be able to be on site Saturday is if you pre-register for Saturday. We will not be accepting any payment on site. Saturday Pre-reg is $60/adult and $40/minor. If you show up on Saturday and you have not pre-registered, you will be turned away until Registration opens Sunday. Please do not let this happen to you or your camp mates.
Standard pre-registration (Sunday arrival) will be $50 for adults (18 and over), and $30 for minors age 3-17. Under 3 is free, but still requires Rag Tags and waivers signed on site.
If you wait to pay on-site Sunday, the price is $55 adults, $35 minors. On Thursday June 16th at 6AM, the price drops to $35 adults, $20 minors. On Friday at 6AM, price drops to $30 / $15, and on Saturday the price is $20 / $10. No day passes are available.
There is a meal plan available from Pat, in the barn (I believe the vendor name is 'bountiful harvest' or something similar). It will run 7 days (Sun-Sat), any two meals per day. The cost is $90.00/person, and is paid directly to the food vendor. In additional to the 'all covered' meal plan, she will also have a lot of a la carte menu items for sale. Normal hours will probably be 8-8, although she is looking into getting people to stay open for late-night cooking as well. She is vegetarian friendly and can work with some food allergies. If you have any additional questions, she can be reached directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Merchant Registration is now closed - the full list of merchants will be available soon in the survival guide.
NO PETS are allowed at this event.
Minors are only allowed to be on site while their parent or permanent legal guardian is on site.
Personal motorized vehicles are prohibited, and no cars are allowed in camps.
Being a camp master is a fairly painless process:
1) If you pre-reg, make sure that you and every one you are camping with designates a single camp and campmaster. The campmaster is responsible for representing your group at land grab and making sure that your campsite is clean before people leave.
2) For people who pre-register for Saturday arrival, we will be having land grab Saturday at noon. At this point everybody picks out where they would like to camp. If there are any disputes, they are resolved by: A) Seniority (how long you have been at your particular spot), B) pre-reg numbers, and C) total numbers expected in your group. Usually there are very few disputes. We will then measure out an appropriate amount of space for the number of people you are expecting.
3) If you don't pre-reg, or can't make it on Saturday, we will do an instant land grab when you arrive on Sunday and measure out your space for you then.
We are opening new land in the 'Secluded Glen', the 'East Field', and the 'Back Yard'. Due to higher demand, most of the new space opened is in the quiet area. If you had issues with noise in your camp last year, let us know and we will find you space in the quiet area. The quiet zone is the area including 40-49 and 70-79, NF1-NF8, and 14-17.
If you were previously in 18-19 and still want to be in quiet area, we will give your group preference when moving into 40-49 and 70-79.
Groups in the quiet area are expected to keep lower noise levels (no amplified music), be family friendly, and have no noise heard outside your own camp after 11PM.
The light for night fighting will be at the lakeview shower house location again this year. If the noise from the light generator or the light itself bothered your camp last year, let me know and we will find a suitable new location for you.
Additional amenities, rules and regulations will be found on the Ragnarok website, and I will answer questions on this thread when I able. I look forward to seeing you both on and off the field as we celebrate the 27th end of the world!
