Newcomer's Event (was Sergeants/Yeomen/Gallants)

July 26, 2013 to July 28, 2013

Victoria, BC

Autocrat: Connal MacLagmayn

Newcomers Event, July 26-28, Barony of Seagirt


Come one, come all to the Island Newcomers event. The Barony of Seagirt and the Shire of Hartwood invite you to come out for the day or the weekend, bring your interested friends, meet some new folks and show them how much fun a time traveler can have.


There will be plenty to do for everyone. A full day of free TUTR classes is being planned for the newcomers (and anyone else who would like to attend). We will dance! We will play games! We will sing! We will fight! We will show each other some cool projects we are working on. We will hold court. There will be a friendly game of medieval football between Seagirt and Hartwood. And of course we will have fun!


Teachers are needed: If you would like to teach please contact Mistress Halima. We would also like to organize some children’s activities. If you would like to take this on, please contact HL Tatiana.


Fighters are needed! There will be prize tournaments for heavy, rapier and archery. The onsite A&S challenge will be chivalry handkerchiefs. Linen will be supplied. Please bring sewing needles, floss and scissors.


Prizes are being sought from the island artisans. If you have something amazing you have made (or would be willing to make) and would like to donate for a specific contest, please contact HL Tatiana by July 15th.


Artisans are needed! We will designate an area for you to work on projects on site. Newcomers will be given time to wander over and see what you are doing, and ask questions. If you want to participate in this, please contact HL Tatiana so we know who/what to expect. Please bring whatever you need for supplies.


Raffle prizes are needed! The raffle will be for newcomers. Every hour throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday we will draw a name so someone can choose a prize. What kind of prizes you say? Well, anything you no longer need that is somewhat period and a newcomer would appreciate. This is an opportunity to clean out your stores of old (but serviceable) garb, bolts of fabric, feast gear, armour bits, etc.


Fees: Adults $20 (No non-membership surcharge) Youth (16 and under) Free.

Family Cap: $60

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
