Caer Adamant! Our friends at Greenbank
Mills are seeking volunteers to help with their Folklore Friday program. If you’re willing to develop and tell local
stories, or tangentially related ones, for digital presentation as part of the
program, they want to hear from you!
SCA’s time period is quite a while before GBM’s period of interpretation
(1790-1830), there could be some stretch with tales or songs about
weaving/spinning, about sheep, traditional drinking songs that would have
extended into the period, tales immigrant communities may have brought with
them (thinking of Irish lore, German fairy tales and so on). By way of example, one volunteer recently
presented a session focused on folk tunes of the American Colonial Period.
two Folklore Friday programs on Greenbank Mill’s YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLotxnmyGts
(it will be a playlist).
interested in volunteering, please contact Alli Schell at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Alli will
walk you through things like how to introduce the program, how long it should
be, what it should look like, format and all that. Thank you!
Hello Sparkly Scribes!
Following the success of similar work days up north, Lady Maryna is
hosting a Southern Region work day with the goal of completing backlog scrolls
(and/or scroll blanks) for the East Kingdom.
If you cannot come to the work day but are interested in
wordsmithing ahead of the event, please contact Lady Maryna.
Let’s get some scrolls done!!!
Sunday, September 15, 2019 from 12:00 – 8:00 pm. Dress is modern (no garb please).
You do not
have to commit to the entire time. The Caer Adamant business meeting will be
taking place at the same location from 12:00 to 1:00 pm; and we will kick into
work mode following that.
Brandywine Town Community Center, 4050 Brandywine Parkway, Wilmington, DE 19803. Google Maps. The Community Center is located in the Brandywine Town Center campus (1000 Brandywine Pkwy off Concord Pike) and is the round building with the blueish roof situated across the lake from the Red Robin Restaurant.
WHAT TO BRING
This is NOT a workshop as there will not be any formal teaching. However, scribes of all skill levels are welcome to join in and help. Loaner equipment will be available.
Bring your scribal kit and supplies, including any reference books/materials you may need or want to share. Water will be provided.
Feel free to bring non-messy snacks to share (nothing that requires power/heat, please). We may go out for dinner somewhere nearby depending on interest.
Feel free to
invite anyone who might be interested!
Contact Lady Maryna Borowska (Blueberry Emily Keller) on Facebook or by email to email@example.com.
Sunday, October 28 Shire meeting, social, and added to it, Wiki Work Day!
As you may have seen, Baron Adolphus is hosting a gathering at his home in Dover that is to start as the Shire Business meeting, but then continue on to a social/newcomer/gathering things.
There will be people (even if it is just me) and computers available for East Kingdom Wiki Page creation, edits, and updates.
Please think of things you would like to have on your Wiki page so we can create one for you if you don’t already have one.
Mine is here. And you can link from this one to other peoples to see what folks put on their pages for ideas.
If you have a picture you would like added, make sure you have it available electronically to send me (FB messenger, email, text, whatever).
Are you thinking of finally registering a device? Maybe at Pennsic? Do you already have a device or badge, but want to know the best way to display & use it? Are you a fighter who might proudly march to war for the honor of the mighty East Kingdom? Well this might just be for you!
Your friendly neighborhood heralds will be presenting a Heraldic Primer at 12:00 PM on Sunday, July 23rd. We’ll let you know the basics of heraldry, help with possible submissions for Pennsic, discuss ways to display and use your heraldry, and do some heraldry recognition for possible opponents our fighters might see at war.
Come learn to identify a unit from An Tir from a unit from Calontir. Separate Meridies from Ealdomere. Tell a Tuchuk from a Trimaran.
If you have any questions regarding this announcement contact Lord George from Hartshorn-dale or Kathy from Hockessin.
Garb is encouraged, but not required. Please feel free to bring any favorites if you have one.
If the weather is cooperative we’ll likely have at least one Bocce match before we lose sunlight. If you’re so inclined, snacks or beverages to share are welcome (ingredients list for prepared items is requested).
The location is home to four-legged-furry supreme overlords (i.e. cats) so please medicate if necessary. Please call Baroness Hedewigis at (302) 239-9787 if you have problems getting there.
Address information is available on the Calendar entry.
Update your calendars!
As Lady Shoshana is busily preparing all the things for The Long Night, there will be no Scribal night on Friday, January 13, or on Friday, February 10, 2017.
