Have you been to Spring Tea and Pillage Practice? To pillage and to drink tea all in the same event! Preposterous! Indeed it is true. In fact, we will also be hosting Sigelhundas’ Heavy and Archery Champions Tourneys.
The Pillage Practice site is located at Camp Gillwell in the Qu’Appelle Valley and is one of the most peaceful, scenic event locations close to Regina. In the center of camp is the Great Hall with an inviting fireplace as well as an outdoor fire pit near by to keep you toasty. As the nights can be frosty, we ask you to come and practice your bardic skills to entertain others either inside the hall or at the bonfire, with the bonfire being lit just before dark.
The site boasts two large heated cabins that sleep 14-16 people each. There are no beds, so some sort of sleeping mat may be appropriate if you are not interested in sleeping on the wooden floor. If you are hearty enough there is space available for tents – be sure to bring extra bedding! The nights can be chilly! Depending on the number of people who attend the event, the main hall may be used for sleeping, but this will be at the discretion of the autocrats.
Merchants are welcome to set up their wares in the afternoon, and there is no charge for tables, so bring all you wish!
If you are not in the mood to bring rations for Saturday evening, there will be a tavern style feast available for a small fee. This feast will include a beef stew, dried fruits, breads and dessert.
As to showers there are none on site, but we have obtained a motel room approximately 10 minutes (by car) from the site. It can be used by anyone who wishes. We ask that you bring your own towels and be respectful of others who wish to use it after you. Anyone may use the kitchen sink for his or her morning routine. Again, please clean up behind yourself.
