Youth Practice

Due to meetings and the heat index predicted to be 100 today. I am canceling practice. I dont want to the kids getting heat exhaustion. I will have a makeup practice Thursday night at 630pm at 14 Quail Run for everyone as the temp is suppose to go down. This will be the last practice before Pennsic as I am a land agent and have to be up there Friday. We will be practicing pole arms and sword with shield for the tournaments that will be happening at Pennsic.

See everyone at the barony meeting today.


Barony Meeting – THIS SUNDAY

The July Barony Meeting will be held this Sunday, 21 July 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at the Washington Blvd Practice Site. The forecast is supposed to be hot and humid. If you want to be added to the docket, please contact Maighstir Kieran MacRae (herald at

This being the last Barony Meeting pre-Pennsic (next week, y’all), there are a zillion cool things happening all at once:

Tierrany is hosting a largesse workshop both before & after the Barony meeting, starting around 12 and ending when it ends.

Nicola will be bringing materials to make medallions – cords will be needed and they are seeking someone with the knowledge and materials to make them.

Eet Yeo will be helping us create fun yet simple leather items such as medallions and bracelets.

There will also be materials for felt dragons, colored pencil arrow sets, and bead strings. Tables are needed, if you have a table that you can bring, please do so!

Baroness Constance will be running the garb swap by the usual rules — Newcomers first then everyone else. We are also being asked to bring an item to donate to Paladin’s Pantry or CareBox Pittsburgh.. This is not a sale, this is a giveaway.

Immediately following the Barony Meeting, there will be a class for new Pennsic-goers called “So, it’s your first Pennsic” and taught by Lord Ronin. This is a valuable class that will give you a better idea of what to expect and what kinds of things you can do at Pennsic. Even if you’re not able to attend this year and would like to get an idea of what Pennsic is like, this class would also be useful for you.

If I’ve forgotten something – please let me know.


Woodworking at Pennsic

The Honorable Lord Kai Saerprenn reports that he will be running his Intro to Woodworking series again this year at Pennsic. This set of classes takes you from raw logs (Really! He gets his materials from the firewood people at firewood prices.) to furniture by showing you all the tools used along the way (and how to sharpen them).

These classes are taught in THL Kai’s camp of Hus Faerhaga in N08, quite conveniently near the Barony’s camp.

Also in N08 are THL Otelia d’Alsace’s hand tool demonstrations, in the Barony of Thescorre encampment.

Lastly, in the main Pennsic University area, Sir Bedwyr will be demonstrating how to use a variety of of Eurpoean hand tools.

Check the Schedule for more information.

Wood Shop Day Today

Join us today, July 14th for the last Woodworking Guild Shop Day before Pennsic, in Ishiyama’s shop in Point Breeze, from 10am to 2pm.

If you have any wood projects you need or want for Pennsic, now’s your chance to get advice and help making them. If you have no ideas, bring a 6 or 8 foot board from the hardware store and we’ll help you figure out something useful to make from it.

Send email to “woodworking (at)” if you have any questions or need the address.
