12 Things to Do at 12th Night

Celebrate Twelfth Night with us in the Barony Marche of the Debatable Lands! All are Welcome on this day to enjoy music and song and dancing, good food, and good friends!

What is a Debatable Lands Twelfth Night like? Here are the top 11 things to do!

1. Bring some food to share. Our event is free, even the food! It’s a potluck. All kinds of food are welcome! (Mmmm, cheese balls)

2. Bring and/or taste some cookies! A perennial favorite, Master Urho runs our favorite cookie competition of the year. Bring some to enter, or just munch on the entries and vote for a populace choice winner!

3. Bring your A&S project to display! The event features the Debatable Lands’ Arts & Sciences Championship and Display. There are no limitations, bring your projects, old or new, finished or in progress, to display. You can even request feedback from our top artisans. And if you’re from the Debatable Lands, enter the competition!

4. Bring some beverages. Wet site. Nuff said.

5. Snowball fight! Jasmine of Clan Tarn has her elves working overtime making stuffed “snowballs” for an epic tourney for young and old alike!

6. Get ready to laugh. The Best Commedia dell’Arte troupe in the Knowne World – I Genesii – will be *cough* performing *cough* …multiple times. Don’t miss the most beloved court of Misrule.

7. Bards welcome – the Debatable Lands Bardic Championship is also taking place. Only Debatable Landers are eligible for the Championship, but all are welcome to perform. The theme is the Old and the New.

8. Speaking of performances, the Barony’s own Debatable Choir will perform at 5pm. Let their dulcet tones wash over your ears and hearts.

9. Stuff and cash, cash and stuff… our Twelfth Night Auction of Forgotten Treasures ™ will delight you with the garb, gear, stuff and do-dads available at this silent auction. Have stuff you don’t need? Bring it to donate! But wait, there’s more! We also have a few fine merchants.. peruse their artwork, chainmail, and more!

10. Courts and vigils and courts, oh my! The event features Mistress Graidhne’s vigil and induction into the Order of the Laurel, as well as many other awards, Kingdom and Baronial.

11. Stay for the dancing! After evening Court, our event always has one of the best dances of the season in the entire Kingdom. Don’t worry, we’ll teach you!

12. Bring a donation for Paladin’s Pantry! The Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank needs food items, blankets, and more. Read more here!

See you there!

12th Night Auction of Missing and Forgotten Stuff

Finding stuff you no longer need? Got a Lost & Found box from an event or practice? These are things for the Twelfth Night Auction of Forgotten Treasures ™!

Bring your no-longer-needed garb and gear, kids’ stuff, camping do-dads, and other items of interest to SCAdians to me at BMDL Twelfth Night. I can still pick stuff up – fighter practice would work, or any Panera or Starbucks, or even a tea shop!

The Auction has been a phenomenal success thanks to the many generous contributors and donors and forgetful attendees. I just can’t hardly wait to see what turns up this year!

Thank you, thank you all — Elss

BMDL 12TH Night — Auction Accepting Stuff!

As you rummage around in closet, attic, and cellar looking for those boxes of holiday decorations, keep an eye out for stuff you no longer need. These are things for the Twelfth Night Auction of Forgotten Treasures ™!

I will gladly pick up contributions of no-longer-needed garb and gear, kids’ stuff, camping do-dads, and other items of interest to SCAdians. Send a Faceybook PM to Elss Augsburg (other contact info in the Dark Pages) and we will find a mutually agreeable time/place to meet–fighter practice would work, or any Panera or Starbucks, or even a tea shop! Of course, you can always simply bring the things to the event.

Autocrats, here is how you clear out your Lost and Found!
