Once again, the Barony of Endewearde will be hosting a rousing and raucous festival of armored combat and merriment. At the end of the day, the Endewearde armored combatant who stands victorious will be named Endewearde’s newest Champion of Armored Combat. Endewearde’s current armored champion, The Honorable Lord Gruffydd Abernathy, will oversee the challenges of the day and provide fun for the combatants as well as those in the galleries.

The event will be held at the same site as the Endewearde Hunt, for those familiar with that event. It’s a rustic, wooded site with plenty of room to roam and enjoy some peace and quiet between the bouts or during the lunch break. There’ll be a large cook fire maintained by Endewearde’s Court of Royal Foresters for anyone who wishes to prepare a hot lunch during the midday break. Above ground fire pits and grills are welcome, as well. Note that there is no running water on site so bring your own and please be prepared to pack out all your own trash as there will be no dumpsters.

COMBATANTS: During the tournament, a tourney tree will be used. Armored combatants will need to have a wooden shield plaque on which a representation of your arms must be painted. Blank shields will be provided ahead of time as needed.

The Honorable Lord Gruffydd Abernethy has the following announcement:

Fighters: If you plan to compete I will need you to get in contact with me by Sunday the 10th [September] although the sooner the better as I hear we have some folks who want to make things to cheer on their favorite fighters with. I will need to know who you have as your herald and your arms/ colors wouldn’t hurt. All are welcome to compete and there will be a prize for the best fighter, though the champion will be chosen from the pool of fighters from Endewearde.

Update: September 14, 2017

Tourney of Love SCA event to be held Saturday, February 18, 2017 in the Barony of Endewearde

http://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/361888

Fencers, Fighters, and Artisans! Come demonstrate your prowess and talents at the Tourney of Love. Three competitions to test your skills. A winner for each, though only entrants for all three may vie for the coveted pink baldric as the “Champeen O’ Love”.

Who will challenge Syr Cedric of Thanet this year for the admiration of the Ladies of the Gallery?

Fencing, Rattan, Arts and Sciences competitions are the hallmarks of this tournament. Participants of the tourney may enter to win one or more categories. However, the Pink Baldric will be awarded to the gentle who excels in all three and displays that which the Ladies of the Gallery feel exemplifies a true Champion of Love. The whim of the Ladies of the Gallery may very well weigh heavily on the outcome of the tournament; after all, this is the Tourney of Love.

Regarding the A&S competition, any period projects created in the past two years are welcomed. Display or perform your best works! Documentation is encouraged but not required. Tell the viewer about the historical basis for your project and what materials and techniques were used in period to create the original item your piece is based on. Then explain your process and the decisions you made in regards to construction, materials (if they differ from period materials, tell what you used and why), and techniques used. You can also talk about what you might do differently next time.

Site Opens: 10 am
Site Closes: 10 pm

The Endewearde Hunt: Friday – Monday, October 6-9, 2017

EVENT DESCRIPTION

The forests of Endewearde are vast and with Autumn upon us, the gentles gather together in the hollow to seek out friendship, knowledge, skill and fame. The Endewearde Hunt boasts all of these things and more. The maples and oaks watch over as a new Baronial Archery and Thrown Weapons Champions are sought through displays of prowess. Under the pines, people gather to learn arts and sciences from others. Their Excellencies watch over the populace with love and admiration. Joyous days are had by all.

Endewearde’s premier camping event takes place in Newburgh, Maine and will be filled with archery and thrown weapons competitions, the famous Woods Walk, a potables round table, a vast A&S track, and more! There is some rumor of a bit of fencing, as well!

This year will also feature the Second Annual Malweardian Naval Battle. Prepare your small siege weapons to attack the floating boats on the pond. More details will be released closer to the event itself.

A sausage fundraiser will take place on Friday evening for a nominal fee.

There will be no Saturday dayboard planned. Instead, Saturday evening will play host to a potluck of vast proportions. If you wish to participate, please bring a dish to share and remember your feast gear. All kinds of dishes welcome!

The site offers primitive camping and above ground fire pits are welcome! Dogs are also permitted, but must remain on a lead at all times. The location has no running water, so please plan accordingly. Port-o-Castles will be located throughout the site for your convenience.

If you are interested in teaching a class for the Arts & Sciences track, a fillable form will be available closer to the event.

Merchants are welcome, as always, but must contact the autocrat. Priority space will be given in order to those who contact the autocrat.

Malweardian Naval Battle
Baroness Margaret of Rochester

“Once again, the combined forces from Endewearde, Malagentia, Hadchester, and foreign defenders will be used to repel a Mighty Naval Armada from our pond!

This year, due to safety considerations, we will NOT include target or combat archery methods. Table top trebuchets, old fashioned pitching arms, and other similarly ranged/weighted methods will be welcomed to defend our homeland. For the sake of the peaceful living wildlife in the pond, we ask that all ammunition be biodegradable.”
