Crown Tourney Update

East Kingdom Gazette - Sat, 2014-11-01 13:01

Crown Tourney has begun in the rain with over forty entrants.  This year’s Crown Tournament has seen a return to the traditional double-elimination format with the initial pairings set by challenge.  Each fighter, beginning with the fighter lowest on the Order of Precedence, was allowed to issue his or her choice of challenge. Each bout in the double elimination was fought as a best two of three fights.  The first and second round were fought on the planned field.  The third round is starting on the nearest graveled parking lot due to the increasing mud and slickness of the fighting field.

Keep Calm and Tourney ON!

East Kingdom Gazette - Fri, 2014-10-31 18:15

Baron Dinsdale shared the following message to prevent panic tomorrow at Crown Tournement…

It’s not often that my modern life and my SCA life intertwine thoroughly, but here we go:

For those of you heading to Crown Tournament on Saturday, an FYI:

At 12 Noon, you will likely hear sirens that will sound for approximately 3 minutes.  This is part of an annual FEMA-mandated test of the emergency alert system for the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station.  The Crown Tournament site is located in Richmond, NH.  Richmond is part of the Emergency Planning Zone for Vermont Yankee.  Hence, you will likely hear the alert sirens.  (Actually, if I don’t hear the sirens while at Crown, I’ll be calling some people to try to find out why I can’t hear them, but that’s my problem, not yours.)

Remember, this is only a test.

Regards,
Baron Dinsdale of Northumbria, OP

Event Announcement: Feast of the End of the Gaunt Days

East Kingdom Gazette - Wed, 2014-10-29 15:49

Feast of the End of the Gaunt Days

Sunday, February 22, 2015

 

Our fair kingdom enjoyed the fruits of another bountiful harvest, then celebrated and hunkered down for a long winter. Then came the Gaunt Days, as larders became emptier and emptier. From Mid-February we can almost see the End of the Gaunt Days! Let us come together at table, bringing whatever we can to celebrate our survival! The Feast is a chance for the clever victualler to show off their cunning in making tasty fare from the remains of the pantry. What food do you have, when no other can be found fresh? Did you pickle? Smoke? Dry? Collect up the eggs? Ferment?

This pot-luck gathering is part foodie-schola, wherein anyone can come and either just enjoy the day, or show off your finest concoctions for judging and sharing (or just sharing), and part schmoozefest. The day starts with judging so that by lunch and throughout the day the rest of us can sample, learn techniques and swap tips.

Those who bring a dish that feeds 4 or more can have it judge for a chance at stunning prizes and our deepest gratitude! Before the event, it might be a good time to hold workshops and teach someclasses on preservation? Several guilds have sent representatives in the past and we look forward to them attending again.

Prize categories are: People’s Choice, February Fruits, A Mighty Impressive Pickle!, Season’s Meatings, Lenten Lunchtime, The Best Root Home, What Vegetation Survived, Behold the Power of Cheese!, Drinks that Are not Just Melted Snow, Toothsome Stews and Soups, Sweets for the Sweet, and the nebulous None of the Above.

The site is not dry, but do try not to stagger out into the street.

Costs: $0. Students and the elderly are half price.

Donations are gratefully accepted.

We remember those who are going through their own Gaunt Days. Donations to The Jonnycake Center – our local food bank – are gratefully accepted at the door.

The Event Steward, Meister Ulric von der Insel, can be reached at acadie@cox.net or 401-330-0357 before 9pm.

Site: Wishford Hall, 1034 Main Street, Hopkinton, RI

Directions: From I-95 north or southbound, take exit 3 to route 138 west.
