As the sun sets on the Tyrrhenian Sea, pillars of smoke and ash rise up from the nearby villages and towns. 
Throughout the night the cries of defenseless men and women can be heard as camp fires set the land ablaze like the flow of lava from Mt. Vesuvius. 
Just before dawn, an uneasy calm creeps upon the city as the choking smoke from the carnage begins to hover above the city walls. 
The sun begins to peak over the Apennines just as the bells throughout the city begin to ring out, warning the people of an imminent attack. 

The Visigoths are at the gates of ROME! Will you join the Emperor’s forces to defend Rome, or will you take part in its destruction? 
The shire of al Sahid invite those near and far to come enjoy Highland War XXII over the Labor Day weekend in the city of Victorville. Camping is on grass! Schedule of events to include classes, Youth Activities, Tournaments, Archery, Thrown Weapons, hound coursing, Rapier melees, and of course armored combat scenarios.

Site Rules

RV Parking
There are no electrical, water or sewer hookups for RV's. If you are self-contained, however, something might be worked out. Contact one of the event stewards.

Highland War is a drug free zone, law enforcement officials may be called without prior notice to the camp. State and Federal laws are in effect at all times.

Site rules
1. Please be in garb onsite, with the exception of setup and breakdown.

2. No driving on the grass. 

3. Park vehicles in the parking lot. You may unload at the curb around the park, but then please relocate your car to the parking lot. 

4. We have two wagons at troll for use in transporting from the curb to your campsite. Please return these to troll as soon as you are finished with them.

5. Fires are allowed only in portable fire pits elevated 15” off the ground. We are camping on grass that is used by the city recreation department, so if you need a heat shield elevated off the grass to prevent scorching of the grass, you need to provide it. 

6. Open flames must be attended at all times. (This includes “tiki torches”.) Fire extinguishers are required at all camps with open flame and need to be in plain sight, visible to the fire watch. 

7. Any music electronically produced (i.e. boom boxes, car radios, etc.) must be appropriate for a SCA event, and at a volume level so as not to annoy others. If we get complaints, you will be asked to shut it down.

8. Quiet time is midnight.

9. Dogs must be on a leash at all times.

10. Showers are open across the street at the gym during public hours on Saturday, and other times as posted.

11. Do not dump ashes into the trash dumpsters. A few ash cans are available for that purpose.

12. Please keep alcoholic beverage containers out of sight. Use your goblets, tankards, mugs, etc. We are the first to have permission for alcohol at a park in the City, but they aren’t totally comfortable with that, and we want to keep the alcohol visibility at a minimum. For that matter, keeping soda cans out of sight isn’t a bad idea anyway.

13. Site opens 3 PM August 28, 2014. Schmidt Park closes Noon, September 1, 2014. BE OFF THE GRASS BY NOON... THE SPRINKLERS WILL BE COMING ON AT THAT TIME!

14. Straw bales: Do not cut or destroy the straw bales. They’re rented.

15. Children under the age of 5 must be attended at all times.
