For those interested, Shattered Crystal is hosting another Crystal Chamfron. We'd love to have you-- we're thrilled that equestrian events are happening in the Midlands again and the more, the merrier. :)
Not Just Horsin’ Around
June 26, 2010
Site opens 6 pm Friday Site closes noon Sunday
Camp Du Bois North Main Street Wood River, Il 62095
Site is a reproduction of Camp DuBois which was the starting point for the Lewis & Clark Expedition. This is NOT the site built by the state of Illinois that is on Route 3. This is a site built by volunteers. There is a fort on site, lots of open field, and a full restroom with running water & showers.
Equestrian activities with authorizations in the morning & games in the afternoon.
Armored tournament & fort battle. (good chance to authorize before Pennsic)
Rapier tournament & fort battle.

Thrown weapons during the day
Overnight tent camping is allowed on site. The cabins in the fort are available but bunks are slat beds with no padding. Bring your own linens & padding if you want to stay in the cabins. (41 bunks)
We are planning on having an open air feast in the evening. ($8.00 for feast)
Hospitality tent will provide complimentary water, drinks, and snacks all day Saturday for our guests.
Merchants welcome. Please contact the event steward.
