If you’re in Calgary, and are interested in the SCA, please come on out to Samhain on November 5, 2016!

I’m assisting to host this event (autocrat) along with two other lovely ladies, and hope that a lot of people can join us!

The Facebook event is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/620073998142753/

and you can get even more information (and perhaps easier than scrolling through the wall) on our website here: https://sites.google.com/site/montengardesamhain2016/home

For this event, I will also be hosting an Apprentices Tournament and a Heraldry & Scribal display in my role as the A&S champion of Montengarde. There will also be a TUA class the following day.

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)

At SCA Silverwolf 2016 the then Queen Hélène Charesse and Royal Heir, Princess Inga in hraustliga (who would later become our Queen) decided that because of the change in the calendar, that the Kingdom A&S championship to find my replacement would not be happening in November at Winter Coronation, as it was too short notice (since the competition was moved from February to November), and asked me to stay on for an additional year.

In discussion with Her Majesty and Her Highness, as well as the Kingdom Minister of Arts & Sciences, it was decided that instead of the Kingdom A&S competition at Winter Coronation (November 18-20, 2016) the Minister & I would host a Prize Tournament.
