Hi all, from Niall!
Our usual Sunday practice may have been rained out, but some of us still have a hankering for some anchoring (and loosing). As such, we will have a mid-week archery practice tomorrow (Wednesday, Sept. 27) starting at 4:30 pm at our temporary practice location in North Park. The range is located at 852-872 Old Ingomar Rd, Allison Park, PA 15101 – this is near Moon Pavilion in North Park, if you wish to use that as a landmark for your GPS.
Yours in service,
Niall mac Rædwulf

Activities of the day will include a bardic circle, an arts and sciences display with the theme “Passion Project,” the opportunity to sample the wares of our brewers or bring your own favorite libation!
Rattan and Rapier practices will be held in concert with this social. (Please remember its weapons and then libations so that we follow all our combat rules!)
Please bring a dish to share for a Potluck sideboard.
Lord Ronan’s favorite thing to enjoy for with a meal or for a meal was soup! So, if you feel inclined bring your favorite soup to share but more importantly bring your best soup recipes so that we can exchange and share!
As always, the Parks system does not allow glass containers; please plan accordingly!

Due to the weather, archery practice for today is cancelled.
Hi all from Niall!
Our usual space for weekly archery practice is currently infested with goats! Allegheny GoatScape is currently operating in the woods on the hillside where we set our archery targets, and will be there through at least the second week of October. As such, we will not be able to have our usual archery practice there.
But do not fret! We will still have archery practice this Sunday from 11 am to 2 pm. The archery range in North Park is open to the public and provides a nice wide open field for everyone to practice. The range is located at 852-872 Old Ingomar Rd, Allison Park, PA 15101 – this is near Moon Pavilion in North Park, if you wish to use that as a landmark for your GPS.
Yours in service,

Third Thursday sewing resumes this Thursday September, 21st at 7:30. I will have a zoom session running. However, if you would prefer to come sew in person, you are welcome. The address is 1105 Shady Ave, Pittsburgh, 15232. Join us as you sew, iron, draft a pattern, cut fabric or just to hang out. If you are working on something feel free to talk about it. Some people are already working on projects for twelfth night. If you have questions or would like the zoom information, email sewing (at) debatablelands (dot) org.
Rattan and Rapier practices are cancelled on account of rain.
Between the expected rain and my being unable to transport loaner gear today, I am canceling practice. My apologies. See you all next week.
Per Meinolf Grimsson; There will be no thrown weapons practice today because of rain.
Per Godzimir the Golden, due to the high likelihood of rain occurring during our normal practice time, Archery Practice is cancelled for today.
There will be in-person sewing today from 2-5pm at my house, 1105 Shady Ave, Pittsburgh 15232. My house is located up the hill from the martial practice site. Newcomers are welcome. I have a few sewing machines if you need to use one. You are also welcome to bring your own. There is also table space for pattern layout or fabric cutting.
