Calling all Swampies, neighbors and friends.  Please save the weekend of Aug 27-28, for the Warren County 4H Renaissance Faire.  The Barony of Settmour Swamp has been invited to participate in this fundraiser for the local 4H student exchange program.  This will be our second year of partnering with them to build it into a premier event for Northern and Central New Jersey. 

We are looking for volunteers and coordinators for the following:
Heavy Weapons, Fencing, Thrown Weapons, Archery, Dancing and Singing, Fiber Arts, Calligraphy, Blacksmithing, etc.  Any period art, craft or activity that lends itself to having the fair goers try it out would be especially desirable (obviously that does not include the martial arts, those they can watch).

Please bring only period tents, period furniture and accoutrements to the fair grounds.  This is to be
an educational endeavor as well as an entertaining one. 

There is no fee if participating with the Swamp Demo group.  For free entrance, participants must wear garb and present membership card at gate or be on the volunteer list.  Please email Baroness Rhiannon at sewho@msn.com or Emeline Patterson emelinepatterson@aol.com to be added to the list.

Camping is available for no fee.  On site camping in period tents also allowed and a separate safe compound area is adjacent to fair for non-period camping.  There are flush toilets, shower house and water from spigots.

Food is available from fair vendors or please feel free to bring period food to share with our group.  We will have a communal cooking fire for the demo.  Please coordinate with Rhiannon if you would like to cook something.
