2023 Chatelaine Activities!

Hello all!

I have some exciting news from the chatelaine office. We’re gearing up for all activities in 2023 – demos, parades, classes and more! I’m excited to help more people find our game and find their niche here.

If you’d like to help or be a deputy chatelaine, shoot an email over to chatelaine@debatablelands.org. The more folks that volunteer, the more we can do!

If theres an SCA topic you’d like an intro level or higher class on, please also send an email to chatelaine@debatablelands.org. My job is to help folks explore their interests in the SCA, I would be remiss to not take suggestions!

Thank you all for being such an amazing barony I cannot wait to share with everyone.

Yours in Service,

With all other martial practices canceled tomorrow due to the cold, archery is also canceled.

In other news, we’re working on finding a site for shooting in the winter that’s closer to the city. Stay tuned here for an announcement on when and where indoor archery will take place!

Heavy practice 11/20 canceled

Due to the forecasted high of 27 degrees, we will cancel heavy practice on Sunday 11/20. We are going to be returning to our indoor site the first weekend of December. If the weather cooperates and we havr have enough interest, we will hold our last outdoor practice next week.
