Lilies War XXXV

Once again we will gather together to face each other in friendly competition in battles, tournaments, archery shoots, and other martial deeds. We will also share knowledge of more gentle arts in formal classes and informal gatherings. At all times we will celebrate our friendship and camaraderie as we come together from across Calontir and beyond.
Come share “A Simple Little War” with us on the shores of Smithville Lake.

LILIES WAR MAP
When & Where
The intersection of High Road and King’s Highway.
For those people dreading the long walk to the parking lot just to retrieve ice, good news! Nearly half a mile has been cut from your round trip. For those of you trying to get your steps in, our apologies. May we suggest a walk down Long March road to the shade of Far Point instead?
Two answers: For opening weekend, it will be in the parking lot. For the rest of the event, it will be at the intersection of High Road and King’s Highway.
What’s up with the wandering Gate? For opening weekend, we need the extra parking to accommodate the number of people coming in. However, after that there isn’t any reason to exile your kind and valiant Gate volunteers to the parking lot. This also allows them to manage the ice money jar. If you arrive later in the War, please do not block the road when you stop to visit Gate.
A: Go to your camp, but come back tomorrow by noon and register.
We don’t want to ask the Gate to work all night, so Gate typically closes around 8:00 p.m.
Never fear! A Calontir Chariot is waiting to whisk you away!
Seriously, one of the barriers to doing the sensible thing – going for a cool shower or giving yourself a break in the A/C – has been the long walk to parking. A shuttle service is being provided between key places in camp and parking, as well as some points of interest in between. The shuttle is donation-funded; we recommend $1 per person per ride.
A: Please enjoy the lake at any time, but please remember that children must always be supervised closely in and around the water! There are no lifeguards on duty.
