This is a DRY site, by county law. Buildings are handicapped accessible. The grounds are not wheel chair friendly.



For those who will be bringing children not their own: There are TWO forms that you will need to bring for each child. They both need to be signed by the child's parent or legal guardian. ONE MUST BE NOTARIZED per Indiana law.

1) This form needs the notarization and should be kept with the child at all times:

2) This form is the usual Minor Waiver:

PLEASE have both these forms filled out and signed/notarized where appropriate for each child you will be bringing that you are not the parent or legal guardian of. This requirement is out of our control and the children affected will not be allowed to attend if they are not completed properly before arrival. Thank you.

The northern route to the site is not recommended this year because the road through Purdue is going to be closed for construction. The southern route via River Road will be better, even for travelers coming from the north.

  • From Master Vindis:

    10 years ago on a snowy April day I attended my first Three Saints and my first event in the SCA.

    Three Saints and a Sinner will be my 10th Three Saints.

    So I would like to invite you all to come out and take 10 passes with me over the course of the day, to help me celebrate 10 years of fencing in the Middle Kingdom!
