Leslie Fish has found a square mile (640 acres) of good land, with abundant water, an hour's drive north of Phoenix Arizona. 230 acres of this is currently clainmed by Fan Haven. (We can expand as more money comes in.) It's hilly, forested, wild land with lots of deer, hawks, and even bear -- and the only neighbors will be other fen. We can use the land now as a campground. Later, well...
SCAdians: We can build authentic period buildings, and even a castle on one of the hills, have a year-around 'educational display' and hold any size and kind of event we want.
Pagans: We can build a Stonehenge, plant a Sacred Grove, have any size or kind of ceremony without hassles from anybody.Fans: We could test model rockets here. If we want
to build cabins, tunnel an underground building into a hill, or build a hotel that will always welcome SF Cons, we can -- because we will own it.
Contact Leslie Fish care of Fan Haven if you are interested in either of these oportunities.
Understand, this will take money, and soon. We've formed a 'Fan-Haven Club' to hold title to the land. $100 will buy membership in the club, and larger investments are eagerly sought. (for larger voting rights in the club, naturally)
We want dedicated people with skills who are willing to work hard, work together amiably, in order to plan, design, and construct our dream. Remember, this is virgin wilderness; if we want to put anything there, we'll have to build it ourselves.
Any fans willing to contribute to fan haven but who can't affort a full membership, send whatever donation you can and you will get one tumbled gemstone.
