I was really happy to organize the Laurel’s New Works display at Festival of the Snow Eaters in late October just north of Lethbridge. I had hoped that it would be a really great opportunity for the people of the Incipient Shire of Windwyrm to meet some of the kingdom’s Laurels, see their work, ask them questions, and learn more about their process. I know that often enough, people in the shire find it difficult to get to as many events as those of us in the baronies, and thus have less of a chance to meet the Peers.
I’m helping to host Samhain on November 5, 2016 in Montengarde (Calgary) – an SCA event where we’ll have a Bardic championship… and I’m hosting an Apprentices Tournament.
Like the Squires and Cadets’ tournaments we’re accustomed to, this competition will be open to all Apprentices, but also to anyone who wishes to be ‘Apprentice for a day’, and is sponsored by a Laurel.
Project categories include:
- Anything from the 7th Century
- Anything Irish
- Recent work (any time period, any culture)
