Will there be bathrooms/showers?

Port-o-potties will be available. Showers will not be provided.

Can we have campfires?


Can we bring grills?


Can I bring my dog/cat/frog?

Pets are not allowed. Service animals are an exception.

Oh, lookit the pretty pony!

Yes, majestic isn’t he? Don’t touch.

Oo, pigs and cows and chickens!

Yes indeed. Remarkable creatures that should be left alone. Look with your eyes and not your hands.

I don’t like camping, where is the nearest hotel?

Google “hotels near 150 martin road, fremont nh.” AirBnB might be a good option, too.

Help, NH is foreign to me, how do I get to the site?

Just use the venue address. If you’re coming from North Road the entrance is after the big farm house (#152) on the left.

Do I have to pay to park?


I need to borrow camp gear.

Ask your club leadership for help. Ask them to ask us if they need help.

Will there be potable water?

We will have some sort of bubbler-equivalent. You should bring a water bottle and your club should plan to bring extra water.

Are spectators allowed? Can they camp?

Day-trip-spectators are welcome to attend the event for free. 

Non-fencer-campers are welcome and pay half-price. Ask us for details.

What about rain?

We will do our best to hold as much of the event as possible. Be prepared to shelter under the big-event-tents for periods of time.

I’ve never camped before, what should I bring?

Here’s a short checklist:

  • Tent
  • Sleeping bag
  • Bug spray/sunscreen
  • Food
  • Water/hydration
  • Spare clothes

Can I camp Thursday night before the event?

Yes! We might not have toilets that night, TBD. Worst case, civilization is literally 5 minutes away in Epping, NH.

I’m a beginner/don’t know what HEMA is, is there anything for me to do?

Absolutely! Our local clubs’ leadership will be present and happy to answer questions and likely also offer 1:1 lessons to show you the ropes. Note if you’re swinging a sword around in classes or free sparring you must pay the registration fee.
