Horse riding

For experienced riders and beginner cowboys as well we've prepared horse rides, which can be reserved in the registration package as a binding order*. Either during your registration itself, or later on the My registration and payment page, you can select the time that you want to spend with the horses. You can either choose the 15 minutes ride around the Rope center and pastures, or longer, 30 or 60 minutes rides. If you’ve never sat on a horse before, don’t worry, our horses are very polite and will take you on a leashed ride with a guide. For more experienced riders, individual rides are available as well. Riding in fursuit is possible only after an agreement on site. If the horse won’t like your fursuit, you will still be able to ride the horse naked, or more specified, in your human self.

If there won’t be enough registration for the rides by the end of April, the Horse riding will be canceled. If this unfortunate thing happens, you will be informed.

*A binding order means that, in the case of the event happening, you will be obliged to pay on site even if you change your mind. Your binding order cannot be canceled!

This year as well we've prepared for you a professional poker table, and due to a high demand, we'll be having a Black Jack table as well, for the whole con.

The goal of the game is to collect as many poker chips as possible to achieve the highest score. Poker chips in various colours are used, can be won by the participant, if he engages in wit, skill, luck, comes to a lecture or simply drinks and enjoys the con. The whole game is set to be enjoyed by everyone regardless of their varying interests. The Orgateam does not participate in this game.

The participant will obtain tokens simply for spending money at the bar and in the tearoom. You can also obtain chips in the various competitions or everyone who attends an individual lecture.

The poker chips may be left, or may be multiplied or lost by the croupier. The croupier will be in pre-announced times at the poker table inside the Saloon. During these times, participants can come and try their luck either individually or in a larger number (max 6 players per game). They can multiply or lose their chips in of the games, the Texas Holdem poker (which will be played on two cards) or the Black Jack. The rules will be explained in the conbook, otherwise the croupier will explain them to you too.

Or come just by yourself and we’ll create a team on site. If you’d like to watch, the grandstands of our arena are waiting for you as well.

Campfire of the Old Trapper

We have a simple equation - the more wood, the bigger fire.

Please bear in mind that the campfire is located near the Apartman hotel and Canadian cottages, so we ask you to keep your voices (and music) down a little after the clocks strike midnight, so nearby inhabitants can rest.

 

We hope you will have fun. If you do not have fun, we have a reservation for you at Krchov (Graveyard) street, right behind the Canadian cabins.
