The Barony received recognition from the Laurel Principal Queen of Arms at the July 2018 SCA Board of Directors Meeting. Excerpted from her report:
I would like to commend Alaric MacConnal, Raven Whiteheart, and the rest of the staff of this year's Known World Heraldic Symposium, held in Pittsburgh, PA, June 8-10. It was a great time and well attended. You guys set a high bar for others to match.
The 2018 Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium was held in Pittsburgh, PA, in the Barony Marche of the Debatable Lands. Alaric Mac Connal and Raven Whiteheart did great work as event stewards; the entire Barony was welcoming. We'll be talking about the reception at the castle and the performances for a long time.
Come celebrate the Battle of Agincourt with the Barony! For more information, visit the event page here.
Don't forget, our neighbors in Ballachlagan, Gryffyn's Keep, Kings Crossing, Steltonwald, 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.
