For those who missed the Page copy, I'm including it below. Tickets are still available for the feast (no site-fee for the event itself). And Catherine of Wessex is graciously allowing any sweaty fighters to take showers at her place (approx. 6 blocks away) after the fighting and before the food. :->
We're not allowed to touch money at the site, which is why we're asking for mailed checks. If you do need to pay there, we'll have to do a stealth walk out to the parking lot or something.
Slightly altered Page copy:
