From the Knight Marshal:
Greetings fellow Barony members! My term as Knight Marshal ends in October. Please consider taking over the office so that we can continue to have great practices every week.
The Knight Marshal is responsible for coordinating weekly practice and being the marshal in charge at those practices. In the event that the Knight Marshal cannot be at a practice, he or she arranges for one of the other marshals to run the practice.
Additionally, the group marshals for fencing, youth, archery, and thrown weapons report to the Knight Marshal as deputies.
Overall, the position is not a huge time commitment if you attend, or plan to attend, practice on a regular basis.
If you are interested in helping out your Barony by filling this position, please submit a letter of intent to the Knight Marshal and the Seneschal before the October Barony Meeting. Thanks!
Don't forget, our neighbors in Ballachlagan, Gryffyn's Keep, Kings Crossing, and Sunderoak also hold great events. Check their webpages to find out more, or see the Æthelmearc Events Calendar for a listing of events elsewhere in the Kingdom.
Membership in the Society for Creative Anachronism is not required to attend SCA events. Our only requirements are that you must behave as a noble and honorable lord or lady, you must pay the entrance fee as appropriate, and you must wear garb of medieval or renaissance style. If you are a newcomer, loaner garb is available — details on the Gold Key page. For more information, and suggestions on preparing for an SCA event, see The Online SCA Demo, or contact our Chatelaine (newcomer contact).
The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands holds a number of public demos during the year where people can learn more about our local group. We also hold educational demos for schools and similar groups from time to time, focusing on the history and arts of the middle ages and renaissance. For more information, contact our Chatelaine (demos & membership chair) or contact us through this web site (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Note that since our demo program relies on volunteer effort from people who are not doing this professionally, lead time is vital, especially for demos during the work day.
