Ravensborg is located on an active livestock farm. To avoid issues with outside animals and the livestock, the owner has limited pets or other animals to ones he has approved. No animals will be allowed on site without prior approval. All animals are to be kept on a leash or kennel when out of your tent.
A period appropriate tent can be set up along the road at the entrance to the fort. Modern or other period tents can be set up on the opposite side of the parking area. Hall space is first come first served. It does fill quickly. All sleeping gear does need to be removed from the hall early each day for activities in the hall. The back rooms are already occupied by the event organizers. You should have period sleeping gear to sleep in the feast hall. Limited space is available for tents in the fort. Most of these spots are for the event organizers. Modern items need to be completely hidden or removed from the period tents and buildings with in the fort as the public will be looking into them.
Attendees are discouraged from bringing guns onto the property. If they are brought they are to remain in the vehicles in a locked area and out of site for the duration. Anyone displaying a gun or announcing having a gun on the property will be told to leave the property.
To minimize modern intrusions we will again ask for cigarettes( traditional and electronic) to be left outside the fort and to completely remove any butts from the site. We are having an issue with butts being left on site or tossed by the fire ring. If you use propane or other compressed gas containers please take them home with you after the event. All site trash goes to an incinerator. We had an issue with single use propane bottles exploding and causing damage.
Ravensborg welcomes all attendees regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, etc.
Hate speech or displays are strictly prohibited on site and are grounds for immediate expulsion. While we understand that some symbols are historical, modern usage has rendered them inappropriate for display in any context. Please do not use or display symbols that are inappropriate. If you think you might have to justify it, assume that you won't have the opportunity while you are packing.
Ravensborg is a political free zone for this event and modern politics are not to be discussed. Let's focus on having fun. If you really need to talk politics pick a period issue. Like Harold's illegitimate claim to the throne.
