Throughout the weekend the candidates will be tested in their knowledge and skill of various medieval practices.

So what's this AMA thing?

AMA = Ask Me Anything

I think that's a good way to describe the Sergeantry Trials for someone who's not familiar with them, as the candidates will be tested not only on their martial prowess but on a wide variety of medieval knowledge including dance, games, bardic and heraldry.

I also hope that we'll be able to learn from each other throughout the weekend. If you have something you want to share, offer a one-on-one lesson or a pick-up class. If you see someone doing something cool, ask them about it! While this is already a part of SCA culture, it can sometimes get lost at events where we are either entirely focused on our own discipline or have schedules that are so full that we never get back to the thing we wanted to learn, despite our best intentions.
