    Summerfest Schedule – Week One


    by EMCernunnos

    Join us for Summerfest at the new Catskills Fairground! It’s a two-week festival of games and parties to celebrate summer, and you are invited! The fairgrounds is nestled in the farmlands North of Britain, but you can easily find your way there by going through a golden moongate located at the West Counselor Hall in Britain.

    Sunday 7/12
    Opening ceremony begins at 8:30 pm Eastern Time at the main stage, located at the Southwest corner of the fairgrounds. There will be a Footrace Across Britannia to commemorate the opening and kick -off the events.

    After the race, a Speech by Robert of the Royal Guard will mark the occasion, and he is expected to make an announcement about the restructuring of the Royal Guard. Don’t miss it!

    Monday 7/13 – Hunter’s Night!
    The events begin with an Archery Contest at 7:30 pm Eastern Time at the northwest corner of the new fairgrounds. The event will be a single elimination tournament. No archery-enhancing jewelry or clothing is permitted to be worn during the contest.

    Where has the golden stag escaped to? One of the fairground petting zoo’s prize specimens, a rare golden stag, has escaped! Join Cernunnos in a hunt across the land to recapture the elusive creature and convince it to return to the zoo. The hunt will follow the archery contest.

    Wednesday 7/15 – Day Event!
    Join us at the Trackside Cafe located at the southeast corner of the fairgrounds for fresh bakery and snacks, and take part in a Checker’s Contest at 12:00 Noon Eastern. The contest is single elimination tournament. No checkers-enhancing clothing or jewelry is permitted!

    Wednesday 7/15 – Sailors Night!
    The fairground becomes a raucous party as the sailors come into town. The evening’s events begin with a Ship Race at 8:00 pm Eastern Time. Participants and spectators are encouraged to gather at the main stage for transport to the race location. Bring your own ship and join in the race.

    Following the race, One-Eyed Jack’s Tavern Tent will be serving half-price drinks all evening at the center of the fairgrounds. Be sure to get yourself a few to steady your hands for the Darts Tournament at 9:00 pm (or after the ship race if goes beyond 9pm). The tournament will be single elimination, and is held at the darts booth in the Northwest corner of the fairgrounds.

    Thursday 7/16 – Scholar’s Night!
    The fairgrounds welcomes the intellectuals and scholars to test themselves in a Chess Tournament at 7:00 pm Eastern Time. Kasaven welcomes all to join in the contest, which will take place in the chess tent, located just north of the main stage.
    See you there Catskills!

    As I had not been to the Fairgrounds on Catskills, and wanted to familiarize myself with the layout, I took a sightseeing trip today. Very nice fairgrounds ... just watch out for the traps!
