Event details
Do you know what really gets my pantaloons in a bunch? When I don my best garb for an event only to have someone tell me that my boots are 14th century German but my pouch is 12th century.  Or when these same 'gentles' point out the pleats in my great kilt are French.

Yes, I'm referring to the Period Police!

In 'honor' of their hard work at sucking the fun out of the yurt, the Canton of Northpass will dedicate Bear's Tavern, 2019, in their honor by holding the Period Policeman's Ball.  Wear your finest tavern garb, but include one small anachronism!  Mickey Mouse ears perhaps? Or that smiley face button you purchased in 1972?

No firearms, please!  At all!

And when the period police show up, we can make them work to the point of exhaustion.

Bear's Tavern will take place March 2nd and 3rd at the Blue Mountain Lodge, Peekskill, NY.  Plenty of opportunity to meet with friends new and old as well as to play many period games.  And food.  And drink!  As this is an adult-themed event, we ask that you leave the little ones at home; there will be no activities for them.  There are 30 bunks available on a first come, first served basis.  If you have air mattresses, inflate-a-beds, or cots, bring them.
Site Opens: March 2, 2019 at 9:00am
Site Closes: March 3, 2019 at 12:00pm
