Canterbury Faire with Ildhafn, 2022

This is the booking form for the Ildhafn Baronial campsite at Canterbury Faire, 2022.

The Canterbury Faire website has a lot of information about the event itself. You will need to go there to book for the event proper.

ONE FORM PER PERSON please, even for kids. 

Name
Contacts

We ask that everyone camping with us contribute towards the cost of bringing and maintaining the awning, and other furniture down from the North Island (Rudiger and Aylenora do a wonderful job bringing things down in their trailer), covering Ildhafn's share of the on-site container storage, as well as covering the cost of oil for the lamps, incidental gas usage (e.g. for hot drinks), detergent etc. This years campsite coordinators are Mistress Aveline Goupil and Lady Adrienne Furet.

This year (2022) we're asking for everyone to chip in $15, or $30 for a family. This applies even if you're eating somewhere else (e.g. on the mealplan, or with another campsite); if you're using the Ildhafn gas cookers for substantial amounts of cooking, please contact Aveline to ask about contributing for extra gas bottles.

Please do feel free to use the cooking stuff we have on site if you're doing your own cooking (but do check who else might want to use it) - it's what it's there for.

If you're not camping with Ildhafn, but would like to contribute to the costs of the campsite, then it's up to you how much to contribute - please fill in the form but leave a comment saying how much you're going to put in (just so we can track the money coming in), and please put your tent size down as "Bunking". Thank you for supporting the Ildhafn campsite!

Food

As was the case for the 2021 event, we can confirm that there will again be no honey spiced apple buns at Canterbury Faire 2022. However, Lady Vigdis Svinahildasdottir will be undertaking a private arrangement to supply breakfast buns, those interested should make contact and arrangments with this good Lady directly.

We'll arrange a modest amount of tea, coffee and hot chocolate for the campsite this year. Turkish Coffee is available in the Mong, and tea and instant coffee are also available upstairs, near the main hall. Bring your own supplies if you would like to make hot drinks in camp (you're most welcome to, but let Aveline know if you plan to do that a lot - we'll need extra gas canisters for the small camp stoves).

We can't necessarily cater for special dietary requirements in camp, but if you indicate roughly what they are, we might be able to ... or at least let you know in advance if you're going to have to fend for yourself.

No seafood

No alliums (onions, etc)

Other (describe below)

Other dietary needs. Any any useful information for cooks - alternate names for allergens, or surprising places they might be found; suggested brands; things you do eat - e.g. you're vegetarian but ok with rennet in cheese.
  • Extreme: You might need a doctor or an ambulance. Cooks should be extremely cautious having this ingredient in the kitchen at all. 
  • Moderate: Makes you quite sick (or very sad), but you won't need a doctor. Food prepared in the same kitchen is ok. 
  • Mild: Makes you uncomfortable. You can eat food served on the same platter.
Loaner Gear
Ildhafn keeps 8-ish set of feast gear at CF - metal plate and bowl, cutlery, glass tumbler. BYO napkin and tea-towel. They're available for anyone who doesn't want to bring their own - first in best dressed. Usually there are plenty for all who want them, so feel free if it would be convenient for you.
Tents
Canvas or plastic, rough size and shape, room needed for ropes, etc.
E.g. "near the loos", "far from the common area". No promises, but we'll do our best to accommodate reasonable requests.
Do you need mains power for your tent (e.g. for a CPAP machine)? Please only select this if you need power to live or sleep well, not just to charge your phone.
When will you be on site? Arrival and departure times.
This can be pretty approximate - it's so the stewards can plan what order to put up tents, etc.
Site opens for set-up at midday on Saturday the 22nd. If you don't need to set up a tent, you should plan to arrive on Sunday. The event proper opens on Monday morning.
Event closes at on the evening of Saturday the 29th. The site is still available for pack-up on Sunday (but plan to be off-site before lunch). There is no lunch provided on the final Sunday.
Payment
Direct deposit into Ildhafn's Kiwibank account in advance, if possible. Cash on the day is fine if you're coming from overseas.
E.g. "I want lots of music in the camp", "please no evening singing outside my tent", "visitors at all hours", "I want to run brekkies"
