At harvest's end, when the cold rains come
when the Day of the Dead approaches:
woodsmoke rises, red leaves fall
and sunlight the autumn poaches:
In wild Tir Righ where the storm winds call
On Seagirt's illustrious shores,
Where the halls and the woods of legend stand,
through St. Giles' open doors:
Do the sages and heroes of the Known Worlde meet,
gathered at great roundtables,
to share their knowledge and enrich their minds...and
With the study and practice of sciences and arts
many and diverse:
Fibre and textiles, performance and dance,
scribal, and combat, and discourses varied and
Hence do we call all scholars, great and small, young and
those first seeking the spice of knowledge, and those seasoned with
and all manner between...
to the Island TUTR and Fall Ball in Seagirt, on the weekend of
That's right! Seagirt is hosting an extensive educational event
this coming October.
We will be welcoming teachers from all over An Tir, who bring with
them years of experience in a range of classes, including (but not
limited to): marshal activities, scribal, dance, fiber and
textiles, the University of Tir Righ NOVUS track, and a variety of
discourses and lectures.
On Friday evening we will be hosting a meet and greet casual
evening like you would find at an academic
Saturday and Sunday will include classes for as long as we can host
Saturday evening will end with a grand ball and dances that you can
learn during the day.
If you are interested in teaching or otherwise volunteering at this
event, please feel free to contact me (Isabella da Firenze, aka Jen
Peters) either on Facebook (Facbeook event here), or over email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are some restrictions as to facilities, but lecture halls
with projectors/electricity are plentiful.
There are a few different options for hotels at this event, should
you be coming in from out of town.
1) Air BnB - There aren't many mainstream hotels near the site
itself, but there are plenty of Air BnB's within the immediate
area. Just go to airbnb.ca and search for 3800 Finnerty Road
(UVic's address) to find something within your price range. Works
great if you team up with others to share the cost and you likely
can get more space than a hotel room.
2) Accent Inn - We've secured a block of rooms at the Accent Inn in
Victoria. They are $99 a night, plus tax, and include continental
breakfast. For individual reservations, call 1-800-663-0298 or
hotel direct 1-250-475-7500 and quote GROUP ID 5554681 "the Barony

date of October 5.
3) Craigdarroch Guest House - Since it's the middle of the school
year, UVic doesn't have dorm rooms available, but they do have a
very limited selection of guest rooms for $122 a night, plus tax,
call or email for questions/reservations:
There are also additional hotels in the Victoria area, but we have
not secured any other blocks of rooms at this time.
