Dagorhir Overnight Battle Hosted by Amtgard!!!

Saturday, August 16th 1:00pm w Sunday August 17th

This event will take place at Mount Pinos! Important Note: please note that this is at the McGill campground which is 1/2 the elevation of our usual site, so there will be less wear & tear on the body! The Event is at the McGill campsite on the road up to Mt Pinos.

Camping spaces are reserved so we are paying $15.00 to cover the campsite rental & a feast. Remember there needs to be a Adventure Pass per vehicle. We will run woods and field scenarios throughout the park’s rolling hills and thick pine forest both on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. Due to the high altitude, it is advisable to bring plenty of WARM clothing and blankets as the temperature will drop after dark! There are NO AMENETIES! Pack in your own water, TP (for the covered pit toilets), tents, sleeping bags, food, etc! Pets on a leash are allowed.

Check in starts at 3:00pm on Friday the 15th. Fires are allowed (at last report) in designated areas & with a valid fire permit.


The cost of the event is $15.00 which will include a feast & campsite rental.


We will be using the Amtgard rules in honor of our hosts. Basically the only differences are a lighter blow standard & no grappling! In addition they use Magic so this should make a fun change of pace! There are also some straight Dagorhir fights being scheduled.


McGill is a public site. For all those who wish to park at the site, you will need an Aventure Pass for Angeles Crest National Forest. These cost $5 for one day or $30 for the year. They are available at Big 5 As well as at the Ranger Station on the mountain.


Take the 5 fwy North out of Los Angeles & the San Fernando Valley towards the Tejon Pass. Exit at Frazier Park (first exit past Gorman). Turn left at the off ramp & head West. Stay on Frazier Mountain Road for 6.9 miles (& 11 inches?). Continue on when Frazier mtn road becomes Cuddy Valley Rd. Cuddy Valley road continues up to the top of Mt Pinos till the McGill campsite at 5 miles up the mountain.
