Ambassadors Gather to Host the Arts & Sciences

Tags

imagesOn September 12, ambassadors are coming from all corners of the East Kingdom – Anglespur, Bergental, Carolingia, Concordia, Rusted Woodlands and Smoking Rocks, to share their enthusiasm, knowledge and skills.  The Arts and Sciences Salon, in Scotia, New York, will be a day full of explorations into a wide variety of interests.

Of course the topics you might expect will be covered – culinary arts, embroidery, and glass bead making. But there will also be those areas of interest that might surprise you, such as dance, health sciences, heraldry and parchment making. A total of 20 different topics are planned for the day. There will be something for everyone, young and old, beginner and seasoned pro. Less structured than a schola, this will be an event where everyone is encouraged to share what they know.

Some ambassadors are planning informal classes throughout the day. Others will structure their room for round table discussions, demonstrations, or one-to-one instruction. In every case there will be a chance for hands-on work and play. In addition to rooms devoted to specific arts or sciences, a reference library is planned, which will include interesting and hard to find books and publications on many topics to advance your research, and room to relax and discuss whatever art or science takes your fancy.images (8)

Everyone is encouraged to bring a project to work on during the day or exhibit at the grand A&S Display. This will be a chance to highlight the great skills of the East Kingdom, and mingle with all the day’s participants. Be sure to bring your tokens to show your appreciation.

From the Prince and Princess concerning the Event Calendar

The Prince & Princess at Pennsic 44 Opening CeremoniesHi, Gazette Readers!

We noticed that the kingdom calendar on the East Kingdom website is a bit light on events for the winter. We are very much looking forward to traveling around the kingdom and visiting as many of you as we can manage over the course of our reign, but cannot plan or schedule a visit if there is no event for us to go to!

We understand that many of you are busy planning events and may not have worked out the details yet, but we implore you to publish as much information as you can for these, especially if you have the date set. So, when your group decides to host an event, make sure you’re submitting that to be published on eastkingdom.org!

So, if you’d like to host a really good looking Princess (maybe even Queen by then), put your events on the calendar. Really, who doesn’t want to hang out with Caoilfhionn for 12th Night? I mean, she does give the best gifts.

We look forward to seeing you on our tour!

-Brennan & Caoilfhionn

Something for Everyone at Shire Wars

Tags

, , , , , ,

Shire Wars will be held October 16 to 18, 2015, in the incipient Shire of Archer’s Ford (mundanely Jonestown, PA). Thane Alexander Makcristyne has written this description of the planned activities. Please visit the event announcement for more information.


archersforddeviceFor the past five years the Westernmost Shire of the Southern Region has been getting together and holding an event known as Shire Wars. This year things are little different, in that more Shires and the Barony of Bhakail have joined the event to make it even larger. This year this Shires of Montevale, Blak Rose, Owlsherst, Silver Rylle, Hartshorn-Dale, Buckland Cross, and Archer’s Ford (incipient) have joined up to challenge Bhakail and any ally she may bring to a David vs Goliath type themed event. But who is David and who is Goliath? Well, that is for you, the Good People of the East Kingdom, to find out by coming to the event. Root for your favorite side or join that side, whichever you prefer. But, wait! There have been rumors that invasion may happen from the South and from the West, since the Southern region is engaged with itself and not protecting the Southern and South Western Boarders. For this reason, their Highnesses, rightful heirs to the Crown, are coming to this event to find out what is going on and further help protect this great Kingdom. Will there be battle between the Shires and Bhakail, or will there be a raid where Bhakail and the Shires join forces behind their King and push back the invaders?

There will be field battles of Heavy Weapons and Fencing as well as tournaments for both. Tournaments for Thrown Weapons, Archery, Atlatl and A&S will also be held. There are also going to be youth activities, such as Youth Fencing and Youth Heavy Weapons. The gentler side such as A&S will have Classes to keep the minds of those interested in the arts churning with new ideas. This all ends with a Court shortly followed by a great feast and dancing. So please come and have a good time with us!

What is going on here? SCA Equestrian Tournaments, explained.

Tags

, ,

The following was submitted by Mistress Eleanor Fitzpatrick as a quick “what am I looking at/for” at equestrian tournaments. Please keep these tidbits in mind when watching this Saturday’s competition (or any future Equestrian competition). 
The upcoming Equestrian Champions Tournament seemed a good occasion to write this brief guide about mounted tournaments.  Oftentimes it’s completely non-obvious what’s going on out on the field or why a particular competitor scored high or low, and that’s for good reason.  Equestrian competition is complex and subtle in many ways, and always changing.
The first, most important, thing to realize when watching a mounted tournament is that you’re not watching a single competitor.  You’re watching a team.  This team consists of the rider, the horse, and often the groundcrew.

Pennsic A&S War Point

The Gazette thanks Mistress Amy Webbe for writing the following account of the A&S War Point at our request.

On a bright, sunny morning, far too early for Pennsic time, a diverse group of SCAdians waited anxiously outside of the Aethelmaerc Royal encampment, hoping Hospitality would soon let them in.

They had gathered for an unusual reason, this war: they were competitors and coordinators for the A&S War Point, only the second in Pennsic history. The war point was the brainchild of Their Majesties Timothy and Gabrielle of Aethelmaerc, and indeed, they had done something similar when they last sat the Eastern Throne during the summer reign. Assisted by the enthusiastic support of Our Majesties Etheldreda and Omega, and Their Majesties Ragnvaldr III and Arabella III of the Middle Kingdom, they wished to give the Society Artisans a place to shine.
The rules were simple: bring 7 artisans from your Kingdom, let them set up in a 4 foot space, and let Laurels and Mauches (or your Kingdom’s equivalent) vote.

The seven representatives from the East were: Agatha Wanderer; Lissa Underhill; Naomi bat Avraham; Katheryn Fontayne; Osazuwa nKante; Rosina von Schaffhausen; and Guthfrith Yrlingson. Our artisans represented a variety of interests- fiber arts, historical clothing, casting, armoring, woodblock printing, and lampworking beads. As coordinator for the East, I still admit to being fully biased in favor of the skill of our artisans, and was completely confident that

they could out score any artisans from any other Kingdom, any time, any place. However, as other artisans began to set up, I did feel a little less confident. Creative displays from an amazing variety of areas soon filled the tents- embroidery, sugar work, paintings and illumination…One of the most eye-catching displays was a large, hand made spinning wheel, from an artist in Atlantia- and that was the ALTERNATE offering from Atlantia! I knew we had our work cut out for us.

Over 400 voters came through the door- each was given three glass beads to put in the cup of their top three choices, and it was amusing and touching to see how thoughtfully they carried out their voting- it was not uncommon to see someone an hour after they had first come in, still clutching one or two beads, completely torn over where to place it! Exhibits were intended to be anonymous- no names on anything, and the artisans were not present with their work, so the voting was as blind as we could make it.

Finally, the voting time was over- which meant the tallying of over 1200 (sometimes teeny tiny) beads. Their Majesties East, Mid, and Aethelmaerc assembled, and each spoke encouraging words about the skill and knowledge displayed there today. They also spoke of the need for the A&S War Point to continue, something they plan to discuss with Their Heirs’ Heirs.

The final results were in: The East-Mid alliance dominated the War Point, 721 votes to 521 votes. Two of the top three artisans on the East-Mid team came from the East: Naomi bat Avraham with her printing, and Lissa Underhill, with her lampwork beads. All of our Artisans carried themselves well, and represented the East proudly. I could breathe easily again, knowing the Eastern Skill had carried the day!
