Northeast Maille Fest 2013 - Year Eleven!

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

The dates are set, and the facilities are reserved! NMF this year will be held on August 10th at the same awesome facility as last year.

Northeast Maillefest is a weekend of socialization and maillemaking with old friends, new friends, and friends you haven't met yet. We camp, we eat, we make maille, we talk maille, we show off maille, sometimes we model maille...

We return, this year, to the ironically named Frosty Acres, in Scenic Duanesburg, Upstate New York.  We'll be three hours' drive from New York and Boston, four and a half hours from Buffalo, and five hours from Montreal, so you can plan a trip around the event too.

We will have facilities for camping the nights before and after, and the event will be held in their most awesome poolside pavilion.  You can come and camp, or just visit for the big day on Saturday.  In addition to all the metal-bending, they have loads of activities, like canoeing, fishing, a rec hall/arcade, bocci and horseshoe courts, three ponds, a beach, and of course the pool (which we'll be literally 20 feet from!).

Prices have not changed:
Camping: $20 per person (two nights! Sorry, it's required even if you only use one)
Event: $37 per person (Under 12 free)

It would be great if everyone could get their reservation in for camping in the next few weeks, to ensure we have enough spots. You can get this reservation by sending your full amount for the fest & camping!

I can take PayPal at: blaise@hsyst.us
or you can send a check/money order/cash/firstborn child/blood diamonds to:
Blaise Hartley
270 Pawling Ave.
Troy, NY 12180 USA

If you are just coming for the day of the event, it would be great if you could still send the money ahead of time, but not an absolute requirement.

Hi all!

So, as of now, we have 10 officially registered attendees, 8 of whom are camping with us. Just about the same size as last year. If you want to camp, time and space are running out fast!

 

Four days and counting!

So... We all know it wouldn't be maillefest without a good thunderstorm, but this year looks pretty nice, weather-wise.  Friday night will have some rain, but Saturday and Sunday are predicted to be sunny and in the 70's!  

Bring your bathing suits!
