This year Kingdom Thunder will be held at the Burke Mountain Resort in Burke, VT, the opposite side of the state from previous years. Northern Vermont is growing and Kingdom Thunder is too, we’ve outgrown our old location, which has closed down with all of the new construction going on around Jay Peak. Our new location at Burke Mountain is undergoing construction too.
The event is being held to have a good time and to benefit the Orleans/Essex Visiting Nurse & Hospice. OEVNA&H has been a major community based health care service provider in the North East Kingdom of Vermont since 1969.
The price is $45 per person, you must register in advance – by August 15, 2013 and be sure to include your t-shirt size.
Location: Burke Mountain Resort, East Burke VT
