Sing Thing at Gwillim & Constancia’s home is cancelled for Thursday, October 27, 2016. The next meeting will be on November 10, 2016.

For those of you who haven’t been in the past, Sing Thing is just an opportunity for people who like music, particularly singing, to sit around a table and learn some stuff together. The group has a diverse selection of songs that are a mix of filk, SCA-original, and period pieces. There’s no “talent” required; nobody’s judgy; the only expectation is that you come ready to sing and have fun. And you might want to bring a binder to hold all the great music!

Ragnarr’s AoA was presented.

The Baroness thanked everyone for coming, and remarked on the good work of Nuttus and Albrecht for setting up the White Shield encampment where new people could be welcomed and find their niche in the SCA. She also remarked on how cool it was to see both the thrown weapons championship and the archery championship come down to a battle between father and child – this shows that the next generation of Scadians is thriving.

This closed the court.
