Konichiwa Debatable Lands! Unfortunately, due to overnight rains and a 70-80% chance of thunderstorms during practice hours, I’m cancelling Thrown Weapons Practice for Today, May 27. May you all have a safe and happy Memorial Day!
YIS, Kumagaya-roku-i Kentarou Masamoto, TW MIC BMDL
We are much more accessible to our less mobile friends, have free parking, and a pet-friendly site. Yay!
However, keep in mind that you should bring everything you need for your comfort including a chair, a beverage or snack, bug spray, sunscreen, hat, cabana boy, musical instruments, sun umbrella, etc., etc., etc. Also, the site has a porta-john and no running water should you wish to make appropriate preparation.
I will have a table and a jug of water so that you can refill your water bottles or mugs. Probably a snack, too. Brownies are speaking to me this week.
If you need assistance or have questions, please call or text me at 724-759-3333.
Thank you for asking! These meetings are free and there is no materials charge, as we are generously supported by the Barony and the artists who teach the classes.
Name Tags! We can prepare your name tag before you arrive. Please send an image of your armory, SCA Name, Heraldic or Scribal Title (if any), and your Kingdom to THLady Edana the Red (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We have organized a field trip to the CMU Hunt Library in Friday afternoon. If you are planning to attend please sign up by June 5, 2018 so we can let them know how many to expect (limited to 20): http://debatablelands.org/KWHS/field.php
Get ready Debatable Lands for the biggest, most exciting Barony Meeting the month of May has to offer!
From 2:00 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. (ish) there will be —
RIVETING Officer’s Reports STUPENDOUS information about a Known World Baronial Youth Tournament sponsored by our AMAZING Baroness. WONDROUS news about the Lawrenceville Memorial Day Parade on Monday that will bring as much GLORY as number of people marching with us.
Finally, we will have an update about the INCREDIBLE Known World Scribes and Heralds event coming up in just two weeks as well as the ability to write a MAGESTIC check for pre-registration and hand it to the Reservations Clerk.
If you have something AWESOME going on that you’d like to tell the Barony about, please contact Odriana at jenn(dot)strobel@gmail(dot)com to get on the Agenda beforehand. Or, come on down and catch me before the meeting.
For non-stop heart-pounding information sharing and announcements come on down to the Washington Blvd practice site (map and directions) at 2:00 p.m. You can bring a whole seat, but you’ll only need THE EDGE.
Weather permitting, there will be Heavy Weapons practice on Sunday May 27, starting after the Barony meeting (expected to end about 3:30) until 6, at the Washington Blvd site. Loaner armor will be available.
There is usually at least two marshals present, so we can probably do authorizations when people are ready.
I hope to see many of you there.
Now that you’ve had the opportunity to unwind after War Practice, we’re having our May Barony Meeting this Sunday, 27 May 2018 at the Washington Blvd practice site (map and directions) starting at 2:00 p.m. and going until around 3:30 p.m.
There will be lots of information at this meeting – Jasmine will share some information about the Known World Baronial Youth Tournament (Sponsored by Baroness Hilda), there will be Baronial sashes to model, and the final information about the Memorial Day Parade in Lawrenceville on Monday morning.
There is a facebook event created for the Memorial Day Parade if you’d like to let Yingerz know that you can participate — Lawrenceville Memorial Day Parade Otherwise, please contact Yingerz at ying762 (at) yahoo (dot) com.
If you have cool stuff going on that you’d like to let the Barony know about, please come and join us and tell us all about it.
