Cancelled: September Food Guild Meeting

September Food Guild Meeting was to have been on Saturday, Sept 21, 1 pm – 3 pm and we were going to visit Restaurant Depot, a members-only chain selling wholesale food, beverages, equipment & supplies for restaurants & bars.

Alas, seems everyone is going to Coronation or is otherwise engaged. As soon as details for the October meeting are finalized, I will post here, there, and everywhere.

Agincourt XIII & QRC


Nobles! Join Us! The feast of St. Crispin is upon us and the Barony Marche of the Debatable Lands wishes you to celebrate with us at the Thirteenth Agincourt event now with Queen’s Rapier Championship!

This year, due to site availability, Agincourt will be held at the Monroeville-Pitcairn Sportsmen’s Club, 505 Mosside Blvd, North Versailles, PA, 15137. The site will open at 9:00 a.m. Saturday 19 October 2019 and close at 9:00 p.m.

For our Queen and Her Kingdom we proudly announce the 43rd Queen’s Rapier Championship. To all who stand ready with the sword. To all those that would represent our Queen upon the lists of Her Kingdom. The Rapier Championship of Her Majesty Gabrielle will be held upon the field of honor and Her Majesty does encourage any and all to come test themselves upon Her lists.

Heavy Weapons Combatants and Fencers! Take the field and fight the battles as your ancestors did on this day. Noble combat shall rule the day until your arms ache from your weapons. What would Agincourt be without archery? Combat and target archers, get your bows, we have plans, just for you too! Scenarios will include historic battles based on Agincourt.

There will also be a “Taker Of Souls” Tournament that is open to Heavy Weapons, Fencing, AND THE SPECTATORS!!

  • The format is a Ribbon Tournament
  • The buy-in is a toy for the children’s toy chest

We will also be having the traditional Tavern Brawl, so plan your parrying weapons accordingly!

There will also be a Youth Fighting space available!

Due to size restrictions this year, we will not be having classes, however we will be having an Artisans play time space. Come and display your art, discuss your art, bring your current projects to work on! We’ll do our best to have good lighting and outlets available.

WWG Planning Meeting Tomorrow

We had our workshop day this past Sunday and we all got at least a full set of pieces made to construct a wooden box with rabbeted corners and lid. Some assembly required.

We will be meeting tomorrow evening, September 19th at 7pm at the Panera in Oakland for another planning meeting to discuss current personal projects and future guild projects. Our next workshop day (October 27th) isn’t scheduled until after our next planning meeting (October 24th), so this meeting might be more abstract and theoretical than practical.

Hope to see you there! Hunt around for us, we’ll be there somewhere.
