Oktoberfecht is a 2-3 day camping event from October 6-8 at Optimist Farm in Apex, NC. We're reserving a fantastic camping venue we've used in the past, putting up a large tent in case of weather, and just hanging out for a weekend with sword people. We're going to open the event up for everyone in the community to contribute all those crazy ideas you want to experiment with -- as well as the not-so-crazy ones. This is going to be a sandbox event, with your chance to offer whatever classes you want, play whatever experimental games you want, test out training ideas, or just hang out, spar, and talk about swords.
Oktoberfecht will take place on Optimist Farm a 70+ acre site that we've held events at in the past. There will be a fire pit, but bring your own food, drink, and swords. We're planning on setting up a side of the farm for family camping with quiet hours, so kids are welcome too.
