Badge for the office of Chatelaine

Did you know that there will be an official Newcomers Point at Pennsic this year? It will be across from Troll in the same tent as the Watch (where Lost & Found used to be). We’ll be there to help answer newcomers’ questions about Pennsic and the SCA in general, as well as running a scavenger hunt for newcomers.

But none of this will be possible without the help of volunteers. AEthelmearc is known for being friendly and welcoming to newcomers, so please sign up for a one hour shift to help new people whilst sitting in the shade (and charging your phone).

AEthelmearc is sponsoring Saturday, 8/5 from 10am – 6pm, and so far, Her Highness Juliana, Their Excellencies of the Bog, and Her Excellency of the Rhydderich Hael are the only ones who have signed up for shifts. Since we anticipate it to be a busy day, we hope to have at least 2 people per shift. The following shifts are still available on AEthelmearc Day:
10a-11a (2 people)
11a-12p (1 person)
12p-1p (2 people)
1p-2p (2 people)
4p-5p (1 person)
5p-6p (1 person)

There are also many other shifts available during both peace week and war week. Please send an email to with your name and phone number to sign up for a shift.

Thank you!
