A marked map of Bastrop State Park. The big red circle is the Dining Hall – Refectory. Also within it, at the top, is a parking area. If the Google Maps aerial view is up-to-date, there are at least 70 spaces in the lot and along the road next to it. If that fill, the thin blue circle to the left, with the P Parking icon, is about 20 spots. The park entrance / headquarters is the thin blue circle to its left. (Map courtesy of Bastrop State Park, thanks for map mark ups by Daniel de Lincoln)

Note, when entering the site, when asked to pay park entrance, tell them you are with the SCA and they will take your name to be covered by the barony instead of your having to pay the park directly.

Holiday Feast will be traditional turkey and ham provided by the Baron and Baroness, served in a sumptuous charcuterie with vegetables, fruits and cheeses artfully presented by the Cooks
Guild. We will provide water, tea and lemonade. We will mark and separate foods, so people with food concerns can make safe choices. We ask the Populace to bring side dishes, salads,
breads, desserts, that have the ingredients listed to help people with food safety issues. We will also separate traditional baked items from gluten free selections. If you have specific needs,
please bring what you need to have an enjoyable and safe experience. Please let us know you are coming! Questions? Email Lady Elizabeth Fraser Neremic@Yahoo.com
