This Sunday at practice BEFORE the barony meeting there will be an archery tournament as well !!! While this tournament is NOT to choose the archery champion of this fine barony it is for an archer to represent this barony in the Second Annual Scarlet Guard Challenge at Hornwood Scarlet Guard Inn!!! This tournament will start around noon and be hosted by me. Ideal participants are those already planning to attend Hornwood. Bring your A Game everyone , I’d really like it if the Debatable Lands could dominate this challenge for a few years like has been done with the 7 pearls.

Knight Marshal Isenwulf writes:

Heavy fight practice will be held, starting around 2:00 (pending the end of the Barony Meeting) this Sunday.

In addition, don’t forget that the tournament to decide the new Baronial Heavy Weapons Champion will also be held. All fighters, belted and unbelted, are eligible to compete. See you there!

Deputy Youth Marshal Arianna writes:

Weather permitting, there will be youth fighter practice this Sunday from 2-5pm at the corner of Washington Blvd. and Allegheny River Blvd. in the East End of Pittsburgh, map here: https://goo.gl/maps/MT1eSkgMDPu.

I will be marshalling while Mistress Fredeburg is unavailable. There will be loaner gear.

If your youth fighter has not yet authorized, NOW is the time to do it! The AEthelmearc Kingdom Youth Championship Tournament is next weekend, May 21st, at AEthelmearc War Practice. We will be pressed for time before the tourney, so the more kids are authorized ahead of War Practice, the better!

The forecast is for rain so keep an eye on this list for updates in case of cancellation.

Dancemaster Pavel Dudoladov writes:

Weather permitting (as in ground not being mud and not raining) there will be dancing. Going forward there will be dance at every Sunday martial practice ( so not during War Practice etc) again weather permitting. I look forward to dancing with you all, no experience needed, all dances will be taught and called.

Archery Practice on Sunday

Captain of Archers Katheryn Tantzel writes:

This upcoming Sunday, (weather permitting) we shall have archery practice, at Washington Blvd. 11am to 2pm. See you there.

Those planning to attend should be aware that this Sunday is also the Pittsburgh Marathon. The course does not include Washington Boulevard, but it does cross at Penn Avenue and at Frankstown Road. Those approaching from Oakland may have trouble reaching the site at certain times, but those approaching from Allegheny River Boulevard should have less trouble.

Attention All Archers!

From Mestari Urho Waltterinen

The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands invites you to a Regional Muster celebrating Archery, Thrown Weapons, Youth Fighting and Arts & Sciences at the Castle home of Their Royal Highnesses of AEthelmearc Byron and Ariella on April 10th. This is the day after Their Coronation. The muster will begin at 10:00 in the morning and continue until 5:00 pm.

The archery and thrown weapons ranges will be open at 10:00 am and archery from the towers, led by THL Deryk Archer, will begin at 1:00 pm.

The main archery goal this day is to shoot and submit rounds for the
Gwyntarian Winter Challenge which closes later that week. There will also be training if we have enough marshals. The Barony’s loaner gear will be available.

Please bring something for a pot luck. We’re going to be there all day, so let’s eat. Pop, water, plates, bowls, and utensils will all be provided.

Their Highnesses have asked that you dress in garb for the day.

The Castle address is 755 Stonegate Drive, Wexford PA 15090.

Call for Letters, Captain of Archers

Greetings Unto the Debatable Lands, Canton of Steltonwald and College of Cour d’Or from your Captain of Archers, Brandubh,

It has been my great pleasure to serve as the Baronial Captain of Archers for the past 2 years, however now I am being pulled in a different direction and must relinquish the Archery Marshallate. To that end I am calling for letters on intent for Debatable Lands Captain of Archers to serve as Group Marshal for the Barony. Letters of intent should include a brief SCA resume, especially including service as target archery marshal, running ranges, teaching, running practices, assisting at any of these, and be addressed to Brandubh – Captain of Archers, and Count Isenwulf – Baronial Knight marshal. I stepped up to this position in April 2014, and plan to step down in April 2016.

Now onto the job itself. The position of Captain of Archers is a deputy position to the Group Office of the Knight Marshal. Captain of archers is not an office, and does not have a vote on the financial committee. The job itself is to ensure that weekly practices are run, and announcements go out about their schedules, or cancellations; to serve as the Archery Point of contact for the barony; and to assist local events with archery. The barony has many loaner bows, arrows, targets, and stands which must be inventoried for the exchequer each year. Outdoor practices usually run from April 15 – November 15, depending on weather.

If you are interested in this position please feel free to contact me.

Cheers,
Brandubh, Baronial Captain of Archers
