Okay, I was fed incorrect info and when I looked at the calendar it became obvious.

Iron horse is taking place March 17th and 18th.

The person who organized the event has resigned and the new person hasn't figured everything else yet. So as I get more info I will share it.

Sorry for the mix up.

Workshop/Presentation/Class Descriptions

Gaming
-Pico Pete Location--Holstrom Park
“The Iron Horse Family Steam Punk Carnival hereby issues a warning to all patrons, to avoid Pico Pistolero and his so called ‘Snake Pit of Scoundrels’. These bunko artists offer supposed ‘honest’ games of chance and skill, including Faro, Vingt et Un, Chuck-a-luck and Three Card Monte. The authorities have been informed that these characters and their games are NOT ‘honest’, and they will employ many tactics to rid unsuspecting comers of their money. You have been warned.”

Contained above is a description of what we’ll offer, and I find that and official ‘warning’ is an amusing way of spreading the word. Feel free to re write, change or edit as you see fit. Our games are authentic 19th century Saloon games, which were common throughout the West.

Victorian Sci fi
-Sage and Savant Location—Grizzly Flats
Though the concept of time travel is still relegated to the world of science fiction, galvanism, separation of mind and body, and the physics of time travel are all a very real line of investigation in the science of today. Sage and Savant incorporates much of what scientists are learning today to postulate a 'what if' set in the Steampunk world. Come join us and discuss the science behind the fiction, the history behind our adventures, and the facts which make our fantasy plausible.
