Aarnimetsä Baronial Investiture, August 31-September 2, 2007

The Canton of Poukka has the privilege to invite all good people to celebrate with us the investiture of Mikael and Katariina, new baron and baroness of Aarnimetsä.

Site:
Kiljava Camping Centre (street address Vihtilammintie 45) in Rajamäki, about 50 km north of Helsinki. The site opens at 7 p.m. on Friday, August 31, and closes at 12 p.m. on Sunday, September 2. Anyone on the site before opening time or after closing time will be considered voluntary work force.

Site rules:
The site is "damp". Smoking is only permitted at designated areas. Those sleeping in beds must bring their own sheets, even when sleeping in a sleeping bag. Open fires are allowed at designated places. Should there be a forest fire warning, other fires (such as torches, candles on the ground etc.) will not be permitted.

Reservations:
Reservations should be made by emailing the event steward. State your names (both mundane and SCA), contact information, any dietary restrictions, what you are paying for and if you are a member of SCA, Inc. or an affiliate organization. Please also state if you are a minor (under 18) at the time of the event. Requests for special sleeping arrangements (quiet, noisy, family etc) can also be made.

Fees:
Site fee is 17 euros for members of SCA or SKA, 20 euros for others. The meal plan (breakfasts, Friday evening snack, Saturday lunch) is 7 euros and the feast is 9 euros. Thus, the entire event costs 33 euros for SCA/SKA members and 36 euros for non-members. Late fee of 7 euros applies to all reservations made after 10th August.

Paying:
Foreign guests may pay at the door. Finnish residents must pay their fees to account 106930-224261 (Kotkan keskiaikaseura) on 10th August at the latest in order to avoid the late fee. When paying, use reference number 13xxxxx, where x:s are your membership number and the check number after it (without the dash). If you are a non-member, write into the message part, who you are paying for.

Cancellation policy:
If you cancel by 10th August, we'll return all your money. If you cancel between 11th and 17th August, you will get your food money back. If you cancel after 17th August, we may not be able to reimburse you at all.
