Knights Errant will be this weekend 9/4 at De Laveaga Park in santa cruz. We have reserved the Twisted Tree site and will Mark the roads as well as the site for ease of locating us. There are BBQ Pits on site and I will be providing BBQ meat and some Drinks. Please bring sides or food to share if you feel generous.
There is no site fee. Relax with friends and fight till your hearts content. Fighting starts around Noonish. Site opens at 9 am I will be there to grab space to fight. There is a large open field and a children's play area with equipment.
This is a mundane event, so wear your shorts and bring some sunscreen. We expect it to be a beautiful sunny Santa Cruz Day! Bring your chairs for out on the field, there are picnic tables in the BBQ site. If you need more information feel free to contact me offlist, or if you need to, I can be contacted @ 831-247-2376. I am hoping these map links will help you all locate us. Once you are on Branciforte Dr. there are park signs.
Take your best route to Highway 1 to santa cruz and Exit on the Morrissey blvd exit. The exit will clover back under the overpass from the north, exit either direction then turn left onto Rooney St. and follow, it will turn right becoming Gilbert Ln. Turn Left onto Goss Ave and follow it down the hill. Turn Right onto Branciforte Dr. and follow it up into the hills. The park entrance is on the Right and should say " DeLaveaga Park" on it , in bright yellow letters. I hope this helps.
I hope to see as many Darkwoodians there as possible. I cant say enough how great an opportunity this is for us to train with the Knights Errant.
Yours in Service,
Pencil it on your Calender NOW September 4th, labor day weekend! Thanks to Mari Alexander, the Knights Errant will be in Caer Darth for a day of fighting, training and teaching. I am going to be arranging a site soon, and will nail down specific details. I wanted to get this out on the air as soon as I could so those of you who want to come and play have PLENTY of time to make arrangements. This will be an incredible opportunity to fight and train with Knights from around the Kingdom. Fighters Do not pass up this opportunity! Come out and show what Darkwood fighters are all about, train and learn something new or refine something you been working on. We are also thoroughly considering throwing down some serious BBQ! We plan to start suiting up around Noonish and fighting till we cant stand up anymore. Some where in all that stick swinging, we will BBQ some grub. I encourage all the fighters in Darkwood to do their best to come out and join us. This is a Rare opportunity...did I say that enough? This is a rare opportunity!
and we get to all play with sticks and not have to wear our garb! Casual Day, just come and have fun!
I will have more info, and a site soon, I promise!
I have a site reserved now for this event. the address is
De La Veaga Park
Forty Thieves Picnic Area
850 Branciforte Dr.
Dont confuse N. Branciforte Ave. for Branciforte Dr....they are a couple blocks apart, and one goes into the front of the park, the other around the back. I suggest you map quest or Google directions, because If I post directions up here I'm gonna get you all lost!( I am directionally challenged) There is not a site fee for this one. I took care of the site. However, we are gonna BBQ some meat...Bring Sides to contribute, Drinks, Ice, Ect. This is a casual social event, and we are mostly getting together to fight and practice heavy with the Knights Errant. We start Noonish, site opens @ 11am to set up. we plan to fight for a while and break to eat grub, and then maybe fight some more...or something like that.
Hope to get as many Darkwood fighters as possible. would be a great opportunity for us all
