Greetings and Welcome to Calafia's Potrero War Website!

Come join us once again, as their Excellencies of Calafia cordially invite one and all to travel down for a wonderful sojourn into the Dream of our Society at Potrero War.

Partake of friendship, food, and fun - there will be Armored, Rapier, and Unarmored combat, Archery and Thrown Weapons, Hound Coursing, Demos, Heraldic consultation, a Scribal Workshop, and Arts and Sciences of all kinds, all under the shade of the majestic oak trees at Potrero Regional Park.

The event will occur Memorial Day weekend, Thursday, May 24th through Monday, May 28th, 2018.

We look forward to seeing you!

After the Siege

The siege is over.
Long ago was the
Curtain wall breeched,
Its rough hewed stones
Trebucheted down
The steep slope,
Tumbled memories
Marking the invaders entry.

Battle cries echo in the wind,
Whistle through the empty arrow loops,
Climb the towers worn stone stairs
To cloud laced skies overlooking
Green fields of another age.

Coin Operated Stone Showers

Greetings from your Potrero War Stewards,

As war planning moves along we have been notified of a change to Potrero Park that we wanted to bring to your attention. As most of you know, California County Parks have been taking measures to ensure water conservation. One way this has affected Potrero is that the showers located in the stone privies up in Sleepy Hollow are now strictly being operated through a coin op box that accepts quarters only. We have discussed this with the County in regards to our event, however they want the coin op boxes to remain in use. We recognize the inconvenience of this and will have quarters for sale at Base Camp, but we also strongly recommend bringing some with you. The cost of the showers is as follows:

$0.50 4 min
$0.75 6 min
$1.00 8 min
$1.2510 min

The Rangers are not allowing private sun showers in camps this year. Any that are discovered will be required to be dismantled for the duration of the event.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for our attendees.

Yours in Service,
THLord Michael Treighie
THLord Parlane of Glenord
