June Faire Demo
May 31-June 01, 2008 in Port Gamble, WA.
June Faire is the premiere demonstration event for the Barony of Dragonslaire, and the Madrone Equestrian Guild is pleased to be providing a demonstration of SCA equestrian activities, terrain willing.
The Equestrian Marshal in Charge for this event will be Viscount Rapheal the Rogue.
Because there is limited space at this event, the involvement of the horses will be limited to a small number of experienced horses day tripping from an off-site staging area.

The Madrone Equestrian Guild is pleased to be presenting three demonstrations of SCA equestrian games at June Faire, two on Saturday at 1 and 3 p.m. and one on Sunday at 2 p.m. Each demo will feature SCA mounted games such as pigsticking, birjas (thread-the-needle) and jousting.
The equestrian area will be clearly marked on the "bowl" field in the same location as last year. You are welcome to come visit the horses, but please be aware that a separate equestrian waiver is required in order to enter the marked equestrian area -- these waivers will be on a clipboard posted near the terminus of the gravel road.
Horse-loving volunteers are welcome to position themselves for the best view of the equestrian games -- just outside the border of the equestrian field -- during the demonstrations. Volunteers are welcome and encouraged to assist in keeping all mundane spectators on the spectator-side of the field boundary.
Horses will be staged at a nearby off-site location and trailering in both Saturday and Sunday. Due to the small space and large number of spectators, only horses experienced with SCA games and environments will be attending. If you wish to bring a horse you must contact the Equestrian Marshal in Charge, Lord Guillaume de Garrigues (firstname.lastname@example.org).
