Excerpt from the official announcement (http://www.dagorhir.com/forums/index.php?topic=16385.0)

"Ragnarok will be held at Cooper's Lake Campground in Slippery Rock, PA, [the site of the SCA's Pennsic Wars] the week of June 13th-20th, 2010. The campground will be closed to mundanes for this week, giving us prime camping space, which should allow for 50-75% of camps to have access to power hookups, and 100% of camps to have running water. There will not be a noise restriction. It looks like the price increase will be minimal, hopefully only a $10 increase [to around $55 for the week], with a possible discount for pre-registration. Final prices will be announced soon, and pre-reg will be open by December 1st. Merchant pre-registration information will be posted within the next month."

“As mentioned before, Cooper's Lake does not allow pets at this event, and minors are only allowed if their parent or permanent legal guardian is on site. …“

“We have separate, easily accessible fields for day battles (with the permanent castle, of course) night battles (with two light towers this year) and woods battles. The walk from the furthest away campsite to the castle at the back of the battlefield will be 1/2 mile (same distance as black company to troll at the previous site), but if that is too much for you, there will be shuttles available from the campsites to the battlefield and back. We will have access to two permanent shower houses, total of 8-10 stalls for men and women. There are many other fantastic amenities and additions to next year's rag I will share later, as well as additional rules and regulations. I look forward to seeing all of you on the field, and off of it as well as we celebrate the silver anniversary of the end of the world.”

Ragnarok is Dagorhir's largest event, hosting 1600-1700 participants with nearly a thousand on the field the last several years. Members of Darkon, Amtgard, Belegarth and many other groups have attended for years and are welcome to join in on the fun. This coming year marks the 25th anniversary of Ragnarok, and it promises to be a lot of fun. The new location has been chosen due to the event outgrowing our long term site at Spring Valley Campground in Cambridge OH (which I highly recommend to those looking for a fairly flexible site for events ranging up to around 1000 persons).

For those interested in attending Ragnarok, there’s a wealth of information on the Dagorhir website; from the event website (http://www.dagorhir.com/ragnarok/), to a packing list (http://www.dagorhir.com/ragnarok/packinglist.html) to extensive discussions on the Dagorhir web board (http://www.dagorhir.com/dagorhir/infoboard.htm).

I look forward to seeing all of my old friends as well as many, many new ones at Ragnarok!

P.S. - update: Pre-Registration is open

And it's going to be:

More expensive than previous years.
No minors without their legal guardian (no big brother with a note).
The two MILLION dollar insurance policy required for vendors means, either ridiculous vendor rates, or no vendors (I'd just say sell under the table, but that's just me).

So (and this is totally subject to change), unless finances improve considerably, I'll really only be able to take off one full week around that time next Summer, and since I'll have to drive a few hours to Pennsic ANYWAY... Looks like I, and a couple of friends I've discussed that with, will be making our way to Armageddon, instead. Maybe some other cross-gamers will chime in and say the same, and the War Council will reconsider this nonsense.

it going to be at most 15 dollars more most likely only 10 though. Vendors will have to pay more(they already have to though.) They already know whos vending and none of them are backing out.

I will gladly pay that amount for more space and anyone who * about 15 dollars just dont order pizza one time during the year and whamo there you go.

If $15 and THAT distance change make it IMPOSSIBLE for you to attend this event, you may want to re-evaluate some things in your life and possibly consider working a job for that week instead of attending a foam fighting dealie. I have never believed that any cost increase under $50 should keep anyone who has all the other aspects of their life in gear, from doing something they WANTED to do in the first place. If that's the deal breaker, you prooooolly didn't care THAT much in the first place... Just a thought.

It sounds like, for Dedric at least, that this is sort of the straw that broke that camel's back sort of deal, not that a few extra hours and $15 is the sole cause.

Honestly, I went to Pennsic in 2004 and 2005 and had a great time. But I did not get any sleep and for me that's huge as I get older and sleep like a grumpy old man (wait, I AM a grumpy old man) :D The camp I sayed in was perhaps 200 yards from the highway and if I had a buck for everytime some phucking trucker just leaned on his horn the wholeway past the campground I could pay the extra admssion price. I, and others, were thinking willful murder by night two. D-bags!

That's why at Spring Valley I grab one of the very many close cheap hotel rooms so I can be assured of a hot shower and quiet whenever I want it. That is not going to happen at Pennsic. I think for most people, the campsite and all the room will be amazing, plus we can finally hae 800+ fighters on the field and allow flanking and tactics that make a difference.

I know, tactics right...? Never! I have hated all the big battles at Rag since we got more than 400 on the field... There's no room to move armies like that... This will be fun.

Dedric, this wasn't DBGA's idea.

It was my idea.

I pushed this ahead because Ragnarok outgrew the Spring Valley site about 4 years ago. Ever since then, it has become increasingly cramped, wet, uncomfortable, and generally so unpleasant that I would not go to another Ragnarok at Spring Valley. And I knew that many others felt the same way.

$10 to $15 more in the event fee is a pittance. As Varadin said, that's one pizza. It's also about two hours of work at minimum wage. And you live so close to the new site that you'll probably use half a tank of gas at most to get there and back. Moreover, nothing else about this event is more expensive--it's not as though you have to pay $15 more to buy food for the week, or $15 more to make extra garb, or $15 more to fix your weapons.

I and everyone else (i.e. Bishop of the Dragoons) involved in running the fighting events will be working as hard as we can to make it an intense, fun event. There will be a separate night fighting field with two high-powered lighting towers, and there will also be NO curfew AT ALL because there will be no mundanes anywhere on the site, which means that this Ragnarok has the potential to be the most fighting-intense foam sword dork battle ever.

This year's Rag seems to have the potential to not suck. Fascinating.

I don't think people are saying 15 bucks I quit. I think its more like should I do Arm or Rag. when it was in ohio and around the same price some may have given Rag the edge. move it farther add a few bucks the scale tips torward Arm.

In life there are always situations where a few $ or hours more (or the reverse) to get there might change the balance of the "event equation." For the RWC, since we've long-outgrown the otherwise fine Spring Valley site, and since a deliberate, focused search for a better site in Ohio came to naught, the Coopers Lake site rose to the top.

Is is farther away to the East? Yes. Is it a bit more expensive? Yes. We will have the massive place to ourselves at a place that is used to running medieval events that are 5-10X bigger? Yes. Are there more restrictions? Yes. There are also less restrictions in many ways. Will have have a permanenr castle and massive field that can accomodate thousands of fighters? Yes.

Everyone makes up their own mind. Sure, Rag will probably "lose" a few score fighters that don't want to travel 2 more hours or pay a bit more. On the massive plus side, we'll have a site that we pretty much cannot outgrow and if the RWC does a good job planning and running the event, it could become quite epic for foamswinging dorks like us.

you will probably replace the lost fighters, with some who did not want to make the trip to Ohio, or had quit going because of cramped condition, you probably made the best decision for your event. Good luck I hope it is a great event.

In all honesty we had plenty of room for camping and staying dry on Militia Hill. I guess we'll have to build a new one. Meh
If you guys don't want to drive the extra two hours east to crossgame, try hitting up more midwest events. Gates of Summer is the first Dag or Bel event of the year and it rules.

There's a hill at the new site, too.

Or, you could found Militia Lake...

Life guarding Militia Lake? **** no, not me!!! lol

On a related note, I ran Security at Rag last year, and my biggest problem was the noise complaints form the permanent campers and the farms next door. Guess what, at the new site, drum all night to your heart's content!!!!!! I know everyone thought I was a total NAZI douche for killing the drums at midnight every night, but it was from the camp ownership, not me... What's also cool, is I will only be at Rag for half the week, and I will do next to nothing of any responsibility!!! My 30th birthday will be Thursday night at Rag, and it will be my 10th Rag in a row, so Militia Lake can be other people's problem!!! WOOOOOOT!

Not to derail too much, but I had a good time at Mudgates last spring. Different fighting for sure, but fun all the same.

I did get a little hasty in my last post. Gates of Summer isn't really the first time you can fight during the year, as WPO is in February, but it's one of the first events of the year, and it's in the midwest. The Olympics are in Indiana and they're within two weeks of Gates. So you can get some tourney fighting in at the O's (Galin, Kenneth, P the Q and Xiao ruled this year's) and then do field battles at Gates.
We've discussed camping by a lake, and we all hate mosquitoes and being flooded so we're opting for the high ground.

Sol Invictus will be attending both Olympics and Gates of Summer next year for sure on the Dag side.

Rag is out as this year is likely a Pennsic year.

Arm and Oktoberfest is on the Bel line up

And of course Lord of War II.

... and Ides of March is in Georgia, during (cleverly) the weekend closest to Ides of March. 190 peeps last year, anticipating 250 to 300 this year. There is actually a big event in the south, hot *!

Hey, just show up at Rag and stick around for a month afterwards until Pennsic starts!

Final prices are posted:

$50 pre-reg (pre-reg opens Dec 1st)
$55 if you wait until on-site

That's only a $5 increase over last year if you pre-reg.

I hope we get as many fighters on the field as possible - I'm doing my best to make this not suck, there's an awesome team working on every aspect of the event.

"There are many other fantastic amenities and additions to next year's rag I will share later, as well as additional rules and regulations."

Any idea what these new rules and regs are? I am sure that will also have something to do with people wanting to come.

Basically, what I've heard of them involves not running wild in parts of the campground we aren't camping in, not messing with the Cooper's expensive equipment, not swimming in the lake (but you can swim in the stream, because it's technically state-owned and thus the Coopers aren't liable if you get hurt), etc. Security is going to be strict about people going places they aren't supposed to be (they'll be clearly defined), but otherwise it's going to be a good time. Unlike last year, we won't have to worry about upsetting the mundanes by drumming all night, because we'll have the campground to ourselves.

Thanks Alric, that sounds pretty straight forward. I know I wont be there, but I am sure this will help those who want to go.

After reading Magnus's and other posts, and now seeing the not terribly ridiculous pricing (plus the inclusion of merchants), I've decided to go after all. So, maybe this year I can actually make it to Armageddon AND Ragnarok, I don't want to miss either.

*sigh* no. Tryin' to buy a house next fall, travel for foam fighting is not on my radar right now... Hope to make at least half of Rag this year though!

Man, it figures I would move to within an hour or so of Spring Valley and then Rag would up and freaking move. They must really not want me there (which is pretty understandable).

What is that whining sound I hear? Is Zwei crying over having a 2 hour drive to Ragnarok? Really?

Here, let me get you a nipple for that beer... :roll:
