SITE BOUNDARIES: The site boundaries will not be marked. The area to the west and south, over the berms, is protected wetlands and definitely off limits. There is also moving water bordering the site. It’s not terribly fast or deep, but appropriate precautions should be taken. Please observe the geographic boundaries.

The north and east edges of the site are delineated by the walking trail that surrounds the area. The walking trail, however, goes behind the archery range and there will be caution tape to close access. There will also be caution tape to close access to the road and walkway to the barns. The old dairy barns are off limits per the site owners. If you are outside the boundaries you are no longer on SCA rented property and are trespassing.

*Please follow the site rules to help us make sure this site is available for future events.

Duke Thorin's VigilP

I would like to extend an invitation to one and all to attend the Vigil for Duke Thorin Njalsson who will be elevated to the Order of the Pelican at July Coronation.
The Vigil will be held on Friday night from 7pm until 10pm in His Grace's encampment which will be next to the Royal encampment.
Look for the wall tent with horses painted on the doors and sides.
For those who cannot make it to the Vigil on Friday night, the Vigil book will be made available throughout the day on Saturday.
All those who would like to leave a message for His Grace are invited to do so.

Being a Consort

Have you ever been asked to be the consort of a fighter and then thought to yourself "What do I do as a consort?"
Now is your chance to ask that and other questions of the kingdom's Ladies of the Rose (LoTR)  and the Ladies of Valorous Estate (LoVE).
In case you don't know, these are the past Queens and the Princesses of the Principalities (or of An Tir when we were a Principality).

Please join us at July Coronation on Saturday evening at 5:00pm for the LoTR/LoVE Invitational Tournament.
We will watch the tournament together and many of us will be on hand to answer your questions and share with you what we've learned as consorts.
Come help us encourage all the unbelted fighters who have been invited to participate in the tournament.

The Creatively Comical Cod-piece Contest

Create a historically accurate (anachronistic) cod piece from any time and location in SCA period in any medium (metal, fabric, etc.) Imbue your cod piece with a special function. Some suggestions include but are not limited to: sound making, light producing, dispensing of food or other items. The choice is yours. Documentation in the form of a historical image (portrait, illumination, museum collection photo) is strongly encouraged. There will be a processional of pieces so wearablity is a plus. There will be prizes for most authentic looking and most hilarious.

Good Gentles!!
Just a reminder of our contest!
Announcement to all Scribes of An Tir...
An informal charter painting contest will be held at July Coronation this year!
As encouragement to all our scribes to paint more Kingdom Charters, so that their Majesties may have as many as they may need (as their reign is quickly drawing to a close) to give out to those well deserving of our populace. Scribes of all skill levels are welcomed and encouraged to participate. Four certificates of award will be given, one winner each in a category of beginner, intermediate, and advanced, and one Crown favorite.
**We are encouraging those entering to bring charters already completed, as space and supplies to paint will be limited onsite.**


"Full site cries will go out on a schedule set by the herald in charge. If you have business for a cry, you must see the herald in charge at Herald's Point 30 minutes prior to a scheduled cry going out."
