The Barony of Endewearde has received word that there will not be access to the Bangor Housing Authority gymnasium building nor its parking lot for the remainder of July and possibly through the entire month of August 2016. This facility is undergoing substantial renovations. This means that our regular Sunday practices that normally run from 4:00-7:00 PM will not be meeting at this location.

Please check the Endewearde facebook page for an ongoing discussion of possible alternative official or unofficial heavy list and rapier combat practices for the remainder of the summer. Official combat practices will be announced through the Barony of Endewearde website.

The University of Maine at Machias has generously provided space for our Medieval Encampment as part of the Summer Festival (known as Bold Coast Sea and Sky Festival). We have use of the open field area in the center of campus as well as around the pond. We have access to the Field House for bathroom & shower facilities so camping overnight will be very comfortable.

We would like to have a “Medieval Encampment” for shade, table demos, prep space, etc. Otto will bring the list ropes for fencing and fighting. Master Godric might bring a target for an archery demo. Please consider coming and sharing a medieval skill with the public. Please also bring some food for yourself.

The tentative schedule is to offer Mid-Morning fencing, fighting, archery, take a break for lunch with a fashion show Mid Day then finish off the Afternoon with fencing, fighting, and archery.

The following sources of information updates regarding organizing Endewearde for this demo can be found on facebook at SCA Medieval Encampment at Machias Summer Festival  as well as the Endewearde facebook group. If you need to drive in to drop off gear or tents then plan to arrive early (around 8 AM-ish); otherwise plan to walk in from the parking area with the items you need for the day.

Contact Lord Otto Gottlieb to volunteer or for more information
(see the Baronial Officers webpage for email addresses).
