About the Event

Greetings Midrealm from the Barony of Sternfeld!

 

Long have our hearths languished to keep us warm whilst events of recent years have stolen the warmth of in-person gatherings. As the sun returns to our hearts as well as the Earth, we invite you to join us for A Simple Day in the Country…with heavy emphasis on Simple!

 

Details of the weekend activities are still being determined but expect a weekend of camping with friends, art classes and demonstrations, access to armored and rapier fields for pickups, training, and martial comradery, archery and thrown weapons, bardic…and most importantly…rekindling friendships and sharing smiles.

 

In Service,

HL Anne Mulligan & Tonis van Driele, O.L.

THIS IS A FAMILY FRIENDLY SITE.

Waiver Information

Attention! A note for those who will be bringing children not their own…

There are TWO forms you will need to bring for each child. They both need to be signed by the child’s parent or legal guardian. ONE MUST BE NOTARIZED per Indiana law.

  1. This one needs the notarization, and will be kept with the child at all times: LINK
  2. This one is the usual Minor Waiver: LINK

PLEASE have both these forms filled out and signed/notarized where appropriate for each child you will be bringing that you are not the parent or legal guardian of. This requirement is out of our control and the children affected will not be able to attend if they are not properly if they are not completed properly before arrival. Thank you.

COVID Waiver Statement

Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to try to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events. By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks. You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.

Camping Information

Camping at Simple Day will be in two forms – full hookup RV sites at $20 per night and primitive campsites at $10 per night. Please note that these prices are per tent/RV per night, not per person. Spots will not be pre-assigned; we will have a map of site at Gate (and at the door of Gate for after-hours arrivals) to help you find a location. Note that we will be reserving some areas for access lanes.
For those familiar with our site, the RV camping will be at the south end of the Promenade just north of the bridge, while primitive camping will be in the south half of the open field across the creek north of the expo hall (now with improved drainage systems!)
 
We would love to see groups camp together and will also be encouraging bardic fire-crawling on Saturday night. If your group or camp would like to have bardic entertainment come to you, please hang a mug on an easy-to-see post near the entrance of your camp.
In-ground fires are NOT allowed in any of our camping areas this year. Portable fire pits ARE allowed. Please make sure you either have certified kiln-dried firewood or else purchase firewood locally to avoid the spread of Emerald Ash Borer.
 
If you wish to have a fire in your camp, you must use a raised fire bowl, preferably with a fireproof mat underneath it. You may bring firewood with you under any of the following conditions:
– It is kiln-dried scrap lumber with no bark.
– It is from your home or another INDIANA location and has all bark removed.
– It bears a USDA compliance stamp.
– It has a state compliance stamp with it.
Bundled firewood is available at the Circle K in front of the Walmart south of the Fairgrounds and at the Kroger west of the Fairgrounds.
 
Alcoholic beverages ARE allowed on site (see our FAQ for details.) Please haul any empty containers out with you when you break camp and do not dispose of them in site trash receptacles.
