Kingdom A&S Champs This Weekend

Their Royal Highnesses, Arnthor Inn Sterki and Ceirech Na Hinnsi, are pleased to let it be known to all that they are looking forward to choose their Arts & Sciences Champions at the Kingdom Arts & Sciences Championship to be hosted by the the Barony of Rhydderich Hael this Saturday, October 22nd.

It’s too late to set up a virtual entry, but you can register an in-person entry if you show up first thing at the event.

The event is from 9am to 5pm, and it’s just a four-point-mumble hour drive up to Sanborn, NY if you want to day-trip it. More information:

Even if you aren’t entering, this is a great event to see what others in the Kingdom are working on, and some of the best arts and research the SCA has to offer.

Arts and Sciences at Barony Social

The Baron and Baroness really hope to see you all at this Saturday’s picnic, and I as the Arts and Sciences minister hope that you will bring your crafting projects with you to work on and show off. There will not be any official classes or display, but while we socialize we’d like to see what you’re working on and ask you questions about your particular craft. This is not the best venue for noisy or messy work, but anything portable and interesting is fair game, and it’s all interesting to us.

I know that we have some knitters, narrow weavers, and braiders coming out. I can’t imagine the calligraphers, illuminators, and painters will leave their supplies behind at home. Personally, I will be bringing some sharpening stones and similar implements to help others with putting a useful edge on their tools and weapons. The site has plenty of room for stuff and people, so please bring whatever you feel like working on.

See you Saturday!

Archery practice is still on

Hello archers!

Archery practice is still happening today at the Washington Blvd practice site from 11am to 2pm. We’ll have to keep an eye on the weather and we may have to pack up early if the rain gets any lightning mixed in, but other than that it should be another fun day of shooting!

See you out there!

Ronan

Calling all archers! MITs wanted!

Greetings archers of the Debatable Lands!

I am officially putting out a call for marshals-in-training for target archery in our Barony! Some of you have already reached out to me and some of you have already begun training, but I would like to get a definitive headcount of all who are interested in becoming marshals. The duties of an archery marshal include:

  • Inspecting participants’ equipment
  • Assisting in the setup and teardown of the range
  • Assisting the marshal-in-charge with calling the line
  • Ensuring all rules and safety standards are upheld
  • Submitting a quarterly report to the Kingdom Archery Marshal

The Marshal’s Handbook can be found on the Kingdom Earl Marshal page at marshal.aethelmearc.org. In the headings at the top of the page, the society wide handbook is under Society Rules and the Kingdom handbook is under Policies. All marshals and MITs must know both rulesets.

If you would like to be an archery marshal then please send me a message either via facebook, or via email at archerymarshal at debatablelands dot org.

*Note: You must be a member of the SCA with an active membership in order to be a marshal.

Thank you all for your interest in volunteering! See you on the range!

In service,
Ronan O Conaill
Captain of Archers, Debatable Lands
