Vikings Come Home XXVi

Its a Quest!

The Barony of Donnershafen Welcomes YOU!


September 28- October 1 2017

Whiting Park
05820 Lakeshore Drive
Boyne City, MI 49712


Take your best route to Boyne City, Michigan proper. Follow Lakeshore Drive out of town along the southwestern edge of Lake Charlevoix towards the Village of Advance and/or Ironton (towards the Ironton Ferry). Approximately 1.5 miles past the one and only store in Advance on your left, Whiting Park Community Center is on the left where VCH XXV will be held. (Follow SCA signs from the intersection of Division and Lakeshore Drive in Boyne City. Many map sites refer to the address as in East Jordan as the park's property borders both East Jordan and Boyne City. For this reason, it is difficult to attach an accurate map.)

Site Cleanup: Apart from your own cleaning of the site before you leave, if anyone would like to assist in site cleanup we greatly appreciate your assistance.
