Class descriptions and schedules can be found on the Class Schedule page.

Pre-Registration is open until April 30th.

Site fee for full or part weekend: USD$20.00.
Non-member surcharge applies.
Please make checks payable to "SCA, Inc. – Shire of Dragon's Mist".

Pacific University is 25 miles west of Portland, Oregon, along highway 8 and easily accessible from US Highway 26. Rooms are available for those that register before April 30th for $35 per person per night. Most of the campus is ADA compliant and we plan on using only accessible areas for KWHSS. There will be free on-campus parking for all attendees who need it, separate from on-campus housing.

Due to university vendor contracts, meals will not be provided on-site, but Pacific University is in downtown Forest Grove, and there are many good options within walking distance. On Saturday, runners will be available to procure to-go food to bring back to the event for those who wish to remain on-site. An on-campus convenience store will be open during the day for our use. Site is discreetly wet, please bring period containers. Site opens at noon on Friday and closes at 5pm on Sunday. Room keys must be returned by 3pm on Sunday.

Registration information is on this page.

Getting Here On Public Transporation

There are several transportation options for getting to the Pacific University campus from the Portland International Airport.

The area transit system, Tri-Met, has a light rail train running directly from the airport to Beaverton which will transfer to the number 57 bus which stops at the campus (current adult fare as of 06/09 is $2.30). Tri-Met has no problems with personal luggage and will lift seats in the handicapped access spaces for rolling suitcases, if possible. The White Van Shuttle Service provides transportation from the Portland International Airport to the Pacific University campus, as well, offering trip-reservable multi-passenger vans at a flat rate of $65. All Portland taxicab services also serve Forest Grove; their rates are comparable with White Van. Our shire plans on having a few private vehicles available to assist KWHSS attendees who have extra luggage and equipment.

For more information on transportation options to and from the campus, please check the links on the Getting Here page.
