Brewers Guild – October Meeting Tonight!

Greetings brewers and friends!

Just a quick reminder that we’ll be having our monthly Brewers Guild meeting at my house TONIGHT (10/10) to brew our *gluten-reduced* porter for the Harvest Revel next month.

7 is the official meeting time, but the brewing will be starting closer to 5, in case you want to come early. (Grain takes time, especially on a weeknight.)

Bring something you’d like to share and discuss with the group – your own brew or not.  I also brought back a little something from Japan for everyone to sample (spoiler alert: we may have toured some sake breweries).

Hope to see you there! (182 Temona Drive, 15236)

A and S – Crayon Bundles for Kids – Oct 7

Weather permitting, but the forecast looks favorable!

This week we will make simple no-sew crayon rolls for children or the otherwise artfully inclined for the Baron and Baroness to gift to the Royalty. I will bring all the materials needed.

Date: Sunday, October 7th
Time: 1 PM.
Location: Washington Boulevard martial practice site
Address: Allegheny River Blvd and Washington Blvd.
Directions: http://www.debatablelands.org/martial/fight_directions.php

NOTE: Even though the parking lot is full of huge white trailers, there is still quite a lot of space to park. There is also a parking lot up Washington Blvd where the cyclists park, and a path down to our site.

Standard disclaimers here:
We are accessible to our less mobile friends, have free parking, and are a pet-friendly site. Yay!

Bring everything you need for your comfort including a chair, a beverage or snack, bug spray, sunscreen, hat, cabana boy, musical instruments, *wellies*, etc., etc., etc. Also, the site has a porta-john and no running water so make appropriate preparation.

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 teachers themselves.

Wonderful Weekend Works

Hello Debatable Lands!

This weekend was Coronation, and it was a wonderful one for the Debatable Lands!!

We welcome Duke Sven and Duchess Siobhan back into our fold as they completed their reign and saw Their Heir, Queen Anna Leigh invested as the Kingdom’s rightful sovereign. Magistra Luceta DiCosimo was vigiled and elevated to the Most Noble Order of the Laurel in her very own unique style that showcased her own “Worst Case Scenario” with I Genesii folk and friends, Eorl Sir Byron received his Sycamore for his work in the Moneyers Guild, Lady Kathryn Tanzel won an archery tourney, as did Lord Ronan. Comtesse Elena d’Artois was victorious in the Rapier Tourney. There was an Award of Arms for [[name redacted – let’s see if we can surprise them…]] Many of our folks received Golden Escarbuncles and recognition from the Kingdom  Brewers Guild for their work at the Aethelbar at Pennsic (see Madoc if you didn’t get yours!) Vivat to Mistress Arianna as she stepped down from the Kingdom Youth Marshal Office.

Many thanks to those that contributed to the lovely gift basket we were able to present to the Crown: Meesteress Odriana Vander Brugghe, Master Ishiyama, Master Annias, THL Muirgheal Heather H Cogan (who contributed quite a bit!), Mistress Myfanwy, and Don Jorundr.

I saw dozens of Debatable Landers there, participating with honor in the tournaments, supporting each other, working for each other, for the event, for the Royalty, and for the Kingdom. My dear Barony, you are truly the shining jewel of this Kingdom!!

PS: Apologies to those I missed – let me know!

In Levitate et Caritate,
Baroness Hilda
