Note: This is an outdoor activity. Please wear shoes made for wet grounds and dress appropriately. It looks like, the weather will be on our side. The place is pet friendly, but dogs have to remain on the leash. This is an equestrian practice, so please make sure you stop at the barn and sign the equestrian waver!

BMDL Equestrian Champs

Oh great populace of our beautiful Barony of Debatable Lands, it is our pleasure to inform you of a gathering with friends and food on Saturday, November 16th 2019 on Nohaaj and Gesa’s property at 46 Caitlin Dr, West Deer PA. This is not an official event, but a celebration of the equestrian community and the Barony.

m’Lord Nohaaj and THL Gesa Van Wellenstein acquired some land which they offer for a fun filled day. Doors will open at 10 AM. BMDL’s Equestrian Championship will be starting at 1 PM. Other activities will be posted at a later time.

We are hoping to have volunteers who will organize marshal activities, A & S, and possible barding. We are looking forward offering an opportunity to practice your skills for Archery, Throwing Weapons, Heavy fighting and other outdoor activities if so desired. The property offers different open areas and fields which can be utilized for archery/throwing weapons. There are woods which are suitable for fighting scenarios.

The food will be pot luck (link to Pot Luck sign-up — http://www.luckypotluck.com/potluck/DebatableLandsEquestrianChampionship) style, with possibly baking or cooking challenges, please bring your own feast gear and seating arrangements (table/chairs). If the beverage guild would like to organize a tasting that would be very welcomed. Our site is wet. We are still looking for volunteers for activities and organizing the potluck drive. If you would like to volunteer, please contact THL Gesa at gwellenstein (at) yahoo.com.

Hope to see you there!!

Woodworking at Practice Tomorrow

The archers of the Debatable Lands are in need of some new target stands! The Woodworking Guild has been asked to help out by building a few more new stands, and what better place to do that than at Archery Practice? last week, we succeeded in making 1 new stand! Now that we know what we are doing, we hope to make at least 2 more tomorrow.

We’ll be meeting up at the Washington Boulevard Practice site tomorrow (Sunday, 2019.08.25) at around 11am to take care of that. Bring some hands tools or cordless tools if you have them. We probably need saws, drills, drill bits, wrenches, sanders, clamps, tape measures, pencils, sockets, and the like.

See you tomorrow!

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.

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.

A and S — Inkle Weaving — Sunday, September 9th

The was MUCH interest in our fiber arts display at the Children’s Museum, so I thought we would get together and discuss weaving on an inkle loom, and other types of fiber-y fun.

===>>  But wait! THLord Kuma has noted that the current forecast is for significant rain on Sunday: 2-3″ of rain on Sunday morning with another 1-2″ in the afternoon and a high chance of flooding. Since the Washington Blvd. site is a flood plane, if this forecast holds, we’ll need to cancel for safety reasons. Please watch these feeds — I will post a message by noon if A&S is cancelled.

Time: 1 PM.
Location: Washington Boulevard martial practice site
Address: Allegheny River Blvd and Washington Blvd.
