Baronial Muster at Fort Knox – June 15-17, 2018

The Baron and Baroness of Endewearde have given the call to arms!
The people of the region will visit and bear witness to our preparations – this is an event which will be a demonstration of our SCA experiences to the public visiting Fort Knox.
Endwearde’s fighters sharpen your swords! Archers string your bows and artisans bring your crafts! We must demonstrate to the Populace we are ready and able to defend the North!
A medieval village encampment will be hosted over the weekend to ready ourselves and hearten the populace.
In the evening after visiting hours there will be more training, a potluck dinner Saturday and the Baronial youth Champioship on Sunday wrapping up with court Sunday afternoon.
No period tents? No problem there are indoor options, just ask the Autocrat.
Day trippers are welcome and encouraged to join us in our mini war camp, teaching classes, displaying wares and vendors for a merchant quarter.
This Demo is not the normal event so come ready to learn, fight, craft, vend and find new recruits to join our august forces.

Baronial Arts and Sciences Championship at Jehan’s

A Letter from Mistress Agatha Regarding Baronial Arts and Sciences Championship at Jehans 2018

Endewearde and Friends,

First, let me thank all who have submitted their intent to compete in our A&S Championship at Jehan’s. The Barony is blessed to be home to so many fine artisans.

In addition to our championship, there is to be a populace vote competition and display space available. Works entered into the display or entered into the championship are both eligible for the populace vote competition. This competition is separate from the championship and is open to all attending the event. You may also display without competing.

Artisans who are competing but not attending should plan on providing documentation for their work, explaining at the very least their inspiration, process, and methods and materials. We obviously cannot interview artisans who cannot attend, but documentation will help us to understand your process.

There will be someone in the display area at all times to watch over all of the entries.

The form for this is linked below and there will also be copies available on site.

For Judges

Hello, Endewearde! I’d like to thank those folks who have stepped forward as judges for our second Arts and Sciences Championship.

Here’s how judging will work: We will have a panel of judges who will meet with artisans face-to-face to discuss their entries. This is a chance for artisans to really show off what they know! The judging time frame will be from 12:15-2:00. During this time the display and competition areas will be closed to the populace to allow for interviews. Each artisan will have an assigned time to be at their table for their interview, which will be approximately 15 minutes.

During court that afternoon, Their Excellencies will announce their newest Arts and Sciences Champion!

We encourage you to bring your own food, as there will be no day board. 

Additional Information

If you have a banner, flag or shield that you would like to display on the fences that surround the Fort green PLEASE do it!! Having such things really do help the ambience.

Thanks to Lord Eoin an Doire we will have Gold Key clothing at Gate! For those of you with newcomers please feel free to take what you need, although I would suggest that you bring your own belts!

Frouva Hrefna of Wyndriche will be running a paper form gate rather than the electronic system we have been using. For the best Trolling experience please have your Blue membership card ready, and to steal a phrase; correct change is always awesome!

For fencing and all kinds of such fun, Lord Radbod will be your MIC and general shenanigan creator. For Rattan your MIC will be Lord Gryffyd Abernathy and our own Baron Ane du Vey. For Youth Combat Activities Lord Thomas de Marr will be Head Velociraptor hearder.

Meisterin Agatha Wanderer will be your contact point for the Baronial A+S Championships, with Lady Olalla Tristana will be looking after those who are entering the Populace Choice display. Visit the page dedicated to this championship and A&S populace choice display for more information.

As we are a bloodthirsty bunch, we are also honoured to have the Guild of Chirurgeons present! Lady Admiranda Howard and Lord Radbod will be present to apply Band Aids!

During the day we will have an open fire in the Tavern, Lord Ragnar and his Lady have volunteered to manage the area. If you wish, we are accepting donations of LOCAL sourced firewood, one or two chunks would make the supply for the day stretch longer.

We have no dayboard, so please plan accordingly. Water will be available in the rest room for drinking and we will have orange coolers inside the Fort.

Parking will be in the site parking lot.

A quick glance at the weather forecast shows mid fifties and a chance of rain showers. As the Fort tends to be cool the autocrat would recommend layers and an extra blanket!
