IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND AN EVENT AT BURGUNDAR THIS YEAR, WE REQUIRE THAT YOU ACKNOWLEDGE HAVING READ AND AGREEE TO ABIDE BY THE WAIVER AT EACH EVENT YOU ATTEND. PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ OUR CONVENIENT DIGITAL VERSION NOW:
In addition to being a business, Burgundar is a community that promotes inclusion and collaboration. To that end, Burgundar L3C has the following policy on Nondiscrimination.
No client shall be denied service based on • race • age • religious beliefs • color • place of origin • sex • gender • mental or physical disability • ancestry • marital status • sexual orientation/relationship lifestyle • source of income • veteran status • family status • political affiliation of that person or of any other person.
It is preferred, but not necessary, for event runners to mimic this nondiscrimination policy, as Burgundar L3C understands the desire and need for minority groups to sometimes gather together as a community.
In any instances that the nondiscrimination policy would conflict with local, state or federal law, this policy shall yield fully to the law.
Disregard for our policies will result in a range of consequences, from a warning to a lifetime ban and legal action. A minor offense will result in a warning with banishment for three events for repeat offenders. A major offense will result in a minimum of a year-long ban from the site with possibility of a lifetime ban and legal action. The severity of the offense will be decided case by case. Individual games may have additional conduct and safety rules.
General Safety Notes
Live Action Role-Playing is exciting, but it is a contact sport. You wander the woods, have daring escapes, close calls, delve into ruins, and battle against your foes with padded (“boffer” or latex) swords. All these things can be dangerous. You must keep real life safety firmly in mind at all times. It is a game, and the most important thing is keeping everyone safe. Common sense must be used at all times no matter how much fun you are having. Don’t hesitate to stop the game or take other steps to protect yourself and others from injury.
Smoking is restricted to designated areas only: cigarette butts are to be left in the sand-filled buckets only. Some games allow smoking medieval pipes around the fire pit, ask the event's director.
Please do not loiter in the parking area and treat it with respect. Burgundar does not own the parking area, it is rented from a kindly neighbor whom has offered it for your convenience. Only staff may drive vehicles beyond the parking lot unless you have special permission. For any assistance please come to the staff building or contact the event director.
Traverse the forest at your own risk. While Burgundar takes measures to provide safety for our staff and attendees, events occur in a forest, which means there will be wild animals, holes dug by animals, fallen trees, and other dangers inherent to a forest. Ankle rolling is the most common injury suffered while moving in a forest. Be ever mindful of where you are putting your feet and move cautiously. It is highly suggested that you never traverse the forest alone.
