    Less than six weeks to Estrella War!

    According to the Estrella War website, the new site has

    • Greatly expanded camping area, all with flat ground;
    • A larger central battlefield;
    • An expanded merchant’s area;
    • A permanent viewing stand overlooking the battlefield;
    • All land is green farmed and regularly watered;
    • The SCA has exclusive use of the site for the event;
    • An excited and accommodating host;
    • Close parking;
    • Enthusiastic local restaurants and shops within 10 minutes of the site;
    • Potable fresh water in several locations on site;
    • Your are never more than a seven minute walk from your camp to merchant’s row, showers, classes or the battlefield;
    • A long term site agreement;
    • A beautiful view of the Gila River.
    That all sounds good. But there are a couple of things to consider:

    Trees will be at a premium this year, so don't go hoping for a lot of shade in your camp. The
    Farmers Almanac predicts wet weather as well, so bring your umbrellas!

    1. I have mixed feelings about the new site. To me, Estrella is simply not Estrella without Estrella Park. Schnepf Farms was okay, but it never felt like Estrella. I imagine the new site will be similar.
