In the lands Beyond the Mountain where arrows fly free
Legends are born at the Royal Championship of Archery
Be you novice or veteran, noble or serf, young or old,
May your aim strike true, and bring home the gold.
Wonders await for those passing the day
Where trickster gods lie await at a Farmstead named Zagray.
By day artisans and merchants shall also gather in a row,
And a practice range will be available for those new to the bow.
Foresters, brewers, and teachers of themed classes we do invite,
And for far-flung travelers and friends, we offer camping under starlight.
Join us all for a modest repast before the Tournament is won,
And the court of Caoilfhionn and Brennan shall follow, before the day is done.
So come join us in chasing away gods of trickery and at least one mythical beast,
And rise to meet the Champions’ challenge, bringing honor and glory to the East!

Site Map and Program
An event guide featuring dining options (including takeout & delivery), hotels, firewood locations, and area attractions will be published on our Baronial website shortly. While we offer camping on site at a VERY affordable rate, please consider that area hotels/campsites/vacation homes may have limited space and higher pricing due to spring graduations and early summer attractions.
Site Rules and Notes
This site is an historic 1930s-1950s preservation site and farm. The site owners will have their own volunteers working on the north side of the pond during the daylight hours of our event. Please be courteous to the volunteers as they pass through to their work site and give them right of way.
The following parts of the site are off limits:
• The pond (no swimming or fishing).
• Any building other than the dining pavilion
• In the event of a brief weather event, guests may shelter under the dining pavilion or eaves of the tractor exhibit hall.
• Any farming equipment on site is a permanent exhibit and is not to be climbed/sat on.
The pond is our boundary line. Please stay on our side of it unless you are driving to the handicapped/staff parking area.
Please do not block the roads, and please maintain a vehicle speed of 10mph or slower.
Please park in designated areas only, and please be respectful of the 1 residence at the far end of the parking lot. This is a quiet zone, and headlights should be dimmed in that area.
This site is wet, please clean up after yourselves (carry in/carry out).
This site is also dog-friendly to well-behaved dogs on leashes. Owners, please be kind and clean up after your dogs.
CAMPSITE RULES (Camping Coordinator: Baroness Kay Leigh Mac Whyte):
• Above ground fire rings (no dug pits no rings directly on grass), propane stoves, tiki torches, and citronella candles are permitted.
• Campers are requested to bring their own fire extinguishers or sand.
• The only light source on site after dark is the dining pavilion, which will be off after 10pm nightly.
• Campers may drive in to drop off their gear at their site, but must move their vehicles immediately after drop-off to the designated areas.
• Anyone leaving the site after nightfall for dining options should be wary of the blind turn to the left at the site entrance/exit.
• There are 4 camping areas: Populace (bordering the stream), Staff and Handicapped (near the dining pavilion), Merchants Row (merchants only), and Quiet Camping. Please be mindful of your neighbors and do not raise voices in designated quiet areas after posted hours or before 7:00 AM daily.
• CT State Law prohibits out of State firewood. Firewood will be available from hardware stores and gas stations in town, 5 minutes from site.
