Event Details for 2017

Earleywood Scout Camp: 31st March – 2nd April 2017

A typical society event with fighting and banquet. The event runs from Friday evening until Sunday lunchtime.
We’ll stay in a cozy scout camp. There are some bunk beds, plenty of space, hot showers and several nice side rooms.
In the morning we’ll fight in local woodlands, then after lunch we’ll continue skirmishing in the scout camp, which is pleasantly wooded. There will be an extended training session in the afternoon, and in the evening, we’ll have a banquet!

Yorkshire Museum of Farming: 5th-6th August

Join DAS at the Danelaw Viking village, set in the Yorkshire Museum of Farming, Murton Park, Murton, York. The site will be open to the public during the days (so we must maintain authenticity) but the weekend is for us to relax and enjoy ourselves.
Accomodation will be in wooden huts/halls. Bring crafts and games.
