The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands turned 50 years old back on April 6th.

Their excellencies Baronessa Violeta and Praetoria Prima will choose their champions for heavy, fencing, archery, and thrown weapons in the tournaments that day. Come and participate or just cheer. If you would prefer medieval lawn games, Lady Finé Failain will have lawn games outside for you to enjoy. There is also an A&S display with the theme Something Old, Something New. See the post about the display if you would like to participate. There will be other A&S activities for you to enjoy. There is a history display assembled by Mistress Ts’vee’a bas Tseepora Levi for you to enjoy. There is an area for merchants to set up along side the other activities. There are a limited number of spots. For more details and to reserve a spot, please contact Arianna of Wynthrope, ariannawyn@gmail.com. There is a history court in early afternoon with regalia parade, a history roll call, birthday cake and song. Later there will be Baronial court. In case you are wondering, there will be food and drink served all day long. Head Cook is Master Alastar Scott MacCrummin. Email the cook, stephen_morrisson@yahoo.com with any dietary questions or restrictions.

Now about those cookies. Because cookie tables are a local tradition, we will have a cookie table. It will be available as soon as there are cookies on the table. So Bring out yer Cookies!

Mid-week Archery Practice and Sky List Update

Hi all, from Niall!
Now that the days are long enough, we’re going to be recommencing official mid-week archery practices at the Washington Blvd. location. Range will be open from 5:30 pm until 8:00 pm this week on Tuesday, May 14th, weather permitting. If we get rained out, we will have it at the same time on Thursday, May 16th. Watch the blog, Facebook page, and e-mail list for cancellations.
A quick clarification regarding tomorrow’s Sky List tournament and the Scarlet Guard Challenge: you do not have to be able to attend the Scarlet Guard Inn event on May 31 and June 1st in order to compete in the Sky List tournament. If tomorrow’s winner is unable to attend the event, the barony’s representative for the Challenge will be chosen by Their Excellencies and the Seneschal from the competitors who are able to attend.

Hello Debatable Lands and friends! This Sunday at martial practices will be our next round of Stellar Tournaments!
