Overall size being requested, expressed as ftxft and note which measurement is your frontage (RV and Special Needs Available please let us know).

Whether your encampment is “period,” or not.
For the sake of doubt avoidance “period,” in this context is canvas or apparently canvas structures supported by wood poles and ropes, or wood structures, or structures that are made to that mimic types commonly in use in what is considered the medieval to renaissance period in Europe and England. Period may include facauds or blinds that are period in appearance, or are natural looking and conceal modern camping structures from the view of a casual observer. Whether a structure, group of structures, or facade is “period,” to the satisfaction of the Maypole Event Steward will be decided by the Event Steward or their appointed representative when such structures arrive. If said structures or overall feel of the encampment in question is judged to be other than represented it may be assigned to another space at the event, at the sole discretion of event staff.
Note: submission of a request for space is not a guarantee of award of space or reservation of a particular space. All camping space will be allotted as the event staff see fit in keeping with the overall layout of the event.
