Goes Beyond the Veil
Andrew’s travels have brought him to a time of remembrance of things
past but not quite gone - things that should not be forgotten.
While he stands at the crossroads, St Andrew ponders the past and
the shadows, and the things that live in between. Come
celebrate this otherworldly time of year with him as his home Barony
of An Dubhaigeainn celebrates the final harvest season of the year
in style. There will be entertainments galore as we celebrate
this special time. For folks who wish to honor the Unseelie
Court or any other creatures that “go bump in the night,” come
dressed as the Fae/Fairy or other creature that goes bump in the
night that you would be if you were not born of these mortal modern
times. Masks are encouraged!
For folks wishing to trade a ghost story or some seasonal music, there will be a bardic competition during the feast, with the theme being ghost stories and other seasonal tales, either told or sung. For those staying overnight, there will also be a firepit later in the evening around which to share your ghostly encounters with others of like mind.
For the light of foot, there will be dancing by torchlight (weather permitting) to such old SCA dance staples as Hole-in-the-Wall, Miller in the Middle, and Black Nag, among many others. Master Richard the Poor will be our Dance Master for the day. Dance steps will be taught during the day in preparation.
A contest will be held for the “ghostliest” encampment. There will be activities for the children, including turnip-painting and a trick-or-treat scavenger hunt.
For the more martial-minded, a tourney will be held to decide our next Baronial Heavy List Champion. All are welcome to participate but there can be only one, Baronial Champion, that is. (There shall be other prizes awarded, as well.) Tourney theme and rules to follow. Watch this site for updates.
Other martial activities, for fencing, archery, and thrown weapons are planned, with all tourneys and competitions being themed for the event. Watch this space for updates on these martial activities, including tourney themes and rules.
A dayboard and feast fitting the seasonal theme shall be presented by our very own Duchess Isabella of York. A hearty “Below-the-Salt” Elizabethan feast shall be served to most attending. For those wishing to experience a richer selection of Elizabethan fare, there shall be special “Above-the-Salt” seating (limited to 24). Please note, for the more vegetarian among us – as this is an Elizabethan-style feast, the menu is meat-heavy! Please plan accordingly. No meal substitutions will be made. A full menu will be forthcoming, as soon as it is finalized.
Merchants are welcome! Please contact the (Autocrat/Reservations Autocrat) in advance to let us know you are coming. Please note that, as we will need space for dancing during the day, we ask that you limit your set-up to 1 table.
This is a camping event! Please bring your tents out for this last camping event of the year and remember to dress for the cool evenings of this season. A fire pit awaits!
