Will's Revenge is back at Camp Karoondinha, 225 Thomas Dam Road, Millmont, PA 17845, on May 6-8, 2011. '
Come help Will seek his revenge! This year, we will be offering archery, heavy fighting, fencing, potentially thrown weapons, etc. We plan to bring to light the myths and legends from period. Do you have a favourite story? Perhaps you'll see it played out on a range, in the buildings, or after feast.
This event is our annual archery showcase. Plan to come and shoot your heart out. (Well, please not literally.) Do you have gently used archery gear you no longer use you'd like to sell? Bring it along! We'll set up a small area near troll for such things.
The feast, as always, will be a culinary delight. Of this, I am perfectly certain. We shall be granted the talents of Mistress Lenora of the Willows and Lady Erzebet Fauconneau in conjunction with Lord Aeryck Blackhart. Prepare to leave the table full and satisfied.

The Site is Boy Scout Camp Karoondinha. Site opens at 6pm on Friday and closes at Noon on Sunday. The site now has hot showers and flush toilets. (There have been numerous improvements.) Because wooded paths are not well lit, please bring a portable light for safe traveling at night.
There are heated dormitory-style cabins with bunk beds and mattresses. These cabins have kitchenettes for those who wish to prepare their own food; please bring your own cooking and cleanup supplies. We will be happy to save a bunk for you if you tell us to do so with your registration; be sure to send your reservations in early, as the bunks spaces go fast! The two available cabins are located near the feast hall. Groups wishing to stay in the same cabin are encouraged to reserve together. Cabins should be vacated by noon on Sunday to allow time for clean up. There is also ample space for tents; the site offers acres of wooded tenting areas as well as some open space for large pavilions.
The Boy Scouts have a strict no alcohol policy for those who use the camp. Please do not jeopardize our future use of the site by violating their policy. If we find that you have alcohol, you will be asked to leave the site with no refund.
