Pennsic Populace Archery Shoot War Points

East Kingdom Gazette - Fri, 2017-08-11 18:29

The Gazette thanks Mistress Ygraine of Kellswood for the following report.

The Midrealm-East-Ealdormere side has taken all 3 populace war points in Archery! Each of the three traditional shoots — presented with a Norse theme this year — was worth one war point. Archers could shoot each one up to five times during the War.

The Castle Window was a 30 second timed shoot at a distance of about 30 yards. Archers launched as many arrows or bolts as they were able in that time at a target representing a castle window slot. Hits in the slot were worth 1 point each; hits on the small white Thor’s hammer inside the slot were worth 2 points each. The AEthelmearc-Atlantia-Allies team scored a total of 1446 points; team Midrealm-East-Ealdormere scored 1836.

The “Soldiers” this year were pairs of Frost Giants at 15 yards, 35 yards, 45 yards and 55 yards. Archers could launch 6 arrows at the targets of their choice, worth 1, 2, 3 or 4 points respectively (for a maximum of 24 points per end). The AEthelmearc-Atlantia-Allies side scored 5189 total points; the Midrealm-East-Ealdormere side scored 7696.

The Clout consisted of a Giant at 100 yards inside a castle turret. On the way to that target was a serpent in a moat at approximately 50 yards. Hits landing in the moat were worth 1 point; hits on the serpent were 2 points; shots landing inside the castle were worth 3 points; and hits on the Giant earned 4 points. Archers could launch 6 arrows at the targets of their choice (for a maximum, again, of 24 points per end). The A-A-A archers totaled 4176 points; the M-E-E archers scored 6423.

Thanks to all the archers who shot and to all the marshals who worked so hard to make everything run smoothly and safely!

Report on War Point in Thrown Weapons

East Kingdom Gazette - Thu, 2017-08-10 23:43

The Gazette thanks Serafina Della Torre for the following report on the Thrown Weapons War Point.

On the last Thursday of Pennsic War 46, throwers and royalty from around the Known World assembled to compete for the Pennsic Thrown Weapons Champions War Point in a tournament designed by Marshal in Charge, Altan of the Moritu. The tournament consisted of 12 champions representing kingdoms throughout the world. They competed in a challenging axe, knife, and spear tournament consisting of eight hard and soft targets. Participants were given specific challenges for scoring including cutting rope, hitting certain small areas of an imagine, and could have points deducted if the wrong areas were hit. Throwers were also challenged to use varying technique for throwing spear, being required to throw both under and over handed. If a weapon penetrated a target and fell out, no points are given, causing the notable quote from Tristan of Northshield: “Hurry up! Score me! Score me! There’s a breeze!”

The victor was determined by team total score. Aethelmearc and Allies had a resounding victory with 795 total points against the East, Middle, and Allies 434. The tournament had a possible 240 point perfect score for each thrower. Tristan was the highest single score with 95 points. Sir Cedric of Thanet was the highest East, Middle, and Allies team scorer with 75 points. Marshal Altan celebrated Catriona MacDhonnachaidh for throwing in full period garb. Several assembled marshals and audience members noted the courtesy, comportment, and collegiality shown by contestants of both teams toward one another.

A Note from the Polling Clerks

East Kingdom Gazette - Wed, 2017-07-26 14:41

The following is a message from Duchess Avelina Keyes, with regard to the recent changes to the way that polls are sent out to members of the East Kingdom Polling Orders.

Hey folks,

A few notes on the polling process. Here in the East, the polling job is split between two people, Duchess Katherine Stanhope and me.

I handle the software side of the polls. I maintain the awards recommendation form and I put together the polls that the Royalty want.

Duchess Katherine handles distribution.

Each Order has *two* lists. One, the “Discussion list” is for Companions of the Order to discuss candidates and other issues pertinent to the Order. The second is the polling distribution list. That is where Duchess Katherine sends the polls. It is possible to sign up for one and not the other. To sign up for those lists, please visit this link:

lists.eastkingdom.org/EmailLists.html

Now, for the polls themselves.

Yes, there is a two step process now. This is to prevent anonymous viewing of the polls. The link you get from Duchess Katherine is a “registration” link. Those records who and what email address requested the poll. That info goes into a token table and a unique URL to the poll is generated for *you* and sent to the email you provided. Once you get the poll, yes, you must enter your personal info again. That is because the token table and the data from the polls go to two separate places. The Royalty like to know who has replied to their polls and a way to contact folks if they have questions. That’s why we ask for it in the polls.

I’ve gone into the system to look for errors. A common error I am seeing is that you are spelling your email address wrong. Maybe dropping a vowel in your name, or typing “gmaol” instead of “gmail”. Also, fake email addresses won’t work. If you enter b@b.com as your email, and you don’t actually have access to that account, you won’t get your unique link.

And, a huge shout out to Baron Mael Eoin mac Echuid for checking out the back end delivery issues.

I’m here to answer your questions. Please contact me via email at web_pollingadmin@eastkingdom.org

Yours,

Avelina

Pennsic for Youth

East Kingdom Gazette - Wed, 2017-07-26 14:25

A guide from Mistress Leonete D’Angely, East Kingdom Chancellor Minor and Pennsic Youth University Coordinator

What Can I Do At Pennsic?

So you are in the 11-17 age range, and you are going to Pennsic. Maybe you are super excited.  Maybe you are going because Mom and Dad said so. Maybe you wait all year to be able to fight twice a day.  Maybe you aren’t so sure there is anything that interests you in this SCA thing. Either way, there is so much for your age group to do at Pennsic. This is a basic overview of some of the options. There is no way I could fit all of the activities into one article, so please check the Pennsic University Schedule and your site book for more ideas and options.

Martial Activities

Armored and Rapier Combat are the two main activities where youth cannot generally participate alongside adults. We do have Youth Rapier and Youth Armored Combat! These activities require special equipment. There may be some for loan, but you would need to check in at that activity. You should bring your parent/guardian with you at least the first time and then ask about the specific rules from there.  

Youth Armored Combat – (ages 6-17) 8/3-8/10  Most Days 8:00AM – 10:30AM and 3:00PM – 5:00PM. Check the schedule for special tourneys or cancellations.

Youth Rapier – (ages 6-17) 8/6-8/10 9:00AM – NOON

Archery – Range is open with some exceptions from 8/2-8/4 11:00AM – 3:00PM, 8/5-8/9, and 8/11 9:00AM – 5:00PM.  There is a family range geared towards those under 14, but youth are also welcome to shoot at the other ranges. There is a youth specific tournament on 8/8 at NOON.

Thrown Weapons – Range is open 8/2-8/10 9:00AM – 5:00PM. Youth Tourney is 8/9 at 10:00AM.

Performance

Enjoy acting, singing, or improv at home? These activities are for you. Some of them are a weeklong commitment, though.

Youth Reader’s Theater – Geared towards 14 and under, staged reading of A Bag Full of Fables. Rehearsals 8/3 and 8/4: 12-2, performance 8/4 at 6pm in the Performing Arts Tent.

Commedia dell’Arte – Fancy way of saying Medieval/Renaissance Improv. Geared for 10-17 year olds. Rehearsals 8/6-8/10: 9:00AM-10:00AM, 8/11 12pm-1, Performance at 6:00PM in Performing Arts Tent.

Youth Choir – 8/6-8/9 NOON – 1:00PM. Geared for those gentles aged 12-19. There is a children’s choir as well for the younger set. Performance is the evening of Thursday, 8/10.  

Classes

Want to learn something new? The only classes off limits to those under 18 are classes that are clearly marked as such, usually because they involve alcohol, mature topics, or are in private camps. Youth are welcome at all other Pennsic University classes.  However, we have organized a set of classes geared specifically towards youth and teens. You can find them by searching YouthU or TeenU on the PennsicU website. There are a ton of classes, but here are a few highlights:

Do a martial activity? Play a sport at home? Learn some strategies for increasing your strength and endurance with Teen Training (8/4 10:00AM – 11:00AM) Bring a towel or yoga mat.

Learn about service and getting what you want out of events with Retaining 101 (8/2 11:00AM – NOON) , Youth Ideas Matter (8/6 2:00PM – 3:00PM), and I Want to Help At Events (8/7 3:00PM – 4:00PM),

Want to learn how to make your voice carry? Interested in reading scrolls? These classes are for you! Public Speaking for Teens (8/3 10:00AM-11:00AM), Tournament Heraldry and List Running (8/6 1:00PM– 1:30PM), and Voice Heraldry (8/10 NOON – 1:00PM)

Volunteering

Pennsic Runs on volunteers, and there are a lot of places where youth are welcome to help. Volunteer Point is open 9:00AM-2:00PM daily at the Town Hall next to the ice store. They can help match you with volunteer opportunities appropriate for your age and skills.

Other Events of Note

Youth A&S Display: This is a non-judged display open to all youth. It is located at Family Point, on Monday, August 7th. Set-up from 9:00AM-10:00AM; items on display from 10:00AM – NOON; clean-up from NOON – 12:30PM. Submission forms for entries will be available online and at Family Point.

EK Teen Party – Monday, August 7th from 7:00PM – 10:00PM in EK Royal. Open to all gentles 13-17

Aethelmearc Teen/Tween Party– Saturday, August 5th, 6:00PM-9:00PM. Open to those 10+.

I hope that this list of activities helps you discover something new this Pennsic!

*Note* Activities and Times are subject to change. Any mistakes are entirely the fault of Leonete. This is not an exhaustive list of all activities, and my apologies if I have left anything out.

NO PROGRAMS, ACTIVITIES OR EVENTS TAKING PLACE AT WAR ARE INTENDED AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE PROPER ADULT SUPERVISION OF MINORS.

Living The Dream

East Kingdom Gazette - Tue, 2017-07-25 16:37

We all have different reasons for why we enjoy being a part of the SCA. Sometimes it’s difficult to put into words. Raiya Corsiglia, from Caid, has showcased those feelings in her film, “SCA – The Dream,” using no words at all. She is most graciously allowing it to be shared.

Battle of Five Armies

East Kingdom Gazette - Sun, 2017-07-23 07:34

Greetings,

The Shire of Quintavia has discovered gold and more in our hills, and, while the Barony of Smoking Rocks has graciously “guarded” our mining operations for the last year, Quintavia has many neighbors who may wish to “liberate” us from this arrangement.

The following is a partial understanding of the goings on that have happened in and around the Shire of Quintavia.

February 13th, AS L, Carolingian Service University, Baron Colin of Carolingia and Citizen Ulrich von der Insel of Bridge begin plotting an alliance for the upcoming event.

March 12th, AS L, Black Rose Ball, Clothilde and Ulrich usurp Baron Eloi, taking control of the Barony of the Bridge. Word of the growing tensions in the Central Region is overheard in Royal Court.

AS LI – gold is discovered in Quintavia

September 3rd, AS LI, Smoking Rocks Baronial Investiture, the Dread Baron Richard Leviathan leads his forces to seize control of Quinatvia’s gold mines, allegedly in an attempt to block Carolingia from doing the same.

September 17th, AS LI, Falling Leaves in Exile, Carolingia pledges to overthrow Smoking Rocks’ intolerable interference.

February 18th, AS LI, Ice Weasel 12, Quintavia pays tribute to Smoking Rocks.

March 11th, AS LI, Novice Schola & Birthday Feast, Bergental pinky swears to come to Quintavia to combat Smoking Rocks’ aggression.

What’s more, our miners have recently discovered a magnificent stone that glows with an inner light.

There shall be competitions and Melees in all of the combat arts(Heavy List, Fencing, Archery, and Thrown Weapons), A&S challenges for artisans, War Points specifically encouraging Youth participation, and even a riddle contest.

In addition,  Dancing and Feasting (Please pre-reg!) will be had by all.  Finally the Shire of Quintavia invites one and all into a party at their encampment the Friday night of the event.

The site does have tenting facilities, please Pre-Reg to ensure spaces.

As part of the event Households in about Quintavia have issued challenges with the winners receiving renown for there the Baronies.

House Fiori – Quintavian Colors Challenge

The Defender of Quintavia shall be chosen from among those residents who present anything green and white, or green, or white. This is to represent the shire colors. Hurrah for the green and white!! Long may our banner wave!

House Lochleven – Practical Garb

Duke Edward and Mistress Cassandra wish to see your practical garb. Whether for smithing, nursing, cooking, plowing, or viking, show off your plain, stained, efficient, or comfy garb.

House Thorgeir – Viking Embellishment

Countess Svava encourages one and all to engage in Viking Embellishment, whether in trim, embroidery, carving, or storytelling.

House Darostur  – Flamingus:

“We of House Darostur. enjoying the finer things in life, such as decorative lawn ornamentation, inflatable creatures, and nylon structures invite the populace to expound on their appreciation of the most noble of birds found throughout our fair Shire and the Known World…the Noble Flamingo. Such expressions of wonder and thoughtfulness will be judged using the arcane and dubious methodology that this Noble House is best known for. Creativity and flair should be used to great affect and will indeed be remarked upon by all of the Household.”

Bring your finest flamingo festooned forms for display Saturday and earn your Barony the Darostur War Point (and maybe some gracefully awkward prizes).

House Viborg is sponsoring a Dirty Dozen Largess challenge!

Each entrant must make 12 items of largess to be given to the Crown. There is no limit on the number of entries. These can be sets of the same item (12 pairs of earrings) or a suite of items to showcase the breadth of an artist’s talent.

More information can be found at the event website, including the pre-reg form.

http://fivearmies.eastkingdom.org/

All are invited to come support the Shire’s neighbors in their bids to see which Barony shall earn the right  to bear the Arkenstone!

This event is co-sponsored by the Shire of Quintavia, the Barony of Carolingia, and the Barony of Bergental, please do come.

Exercise your charity, lighten your load, and help members of the community that has made us so welcome over the years!
