Covering the Eastern Realm of the SCA
Updated: 52 min 31 sec ago
Greetings unto the populace of the East Kingdom. The Shire of Glenn Linn would like to extend an invitation to attend Northern Region War Camp, July 2-5, 2015. We will be in a new, much larger location at the Washington County Fair in Greenwich, NY. This year we will have heavy list, youth fighting, rapier for adults and youth, archery, thrown weapons, equestrian, Royal court, A&S classes, merchants, and merchant demonstrations. With a theme of “assassination” this year’s war camp promises to be a fun event for all.
As this is a new site, we are trying a new process to make check in and camp set up occur as smoothly as possible. We are now taking reservations for individuals and groups. We have campsites near the fighting, near rapier, and near equestrian, as well as general camping near water and electric. We even have two household sites still available. Although reservations are not necessary to attend NRWC, they may help you camp near your preferred activity. Campsites are offered on a first come, first served basis.
For more information or to reserve your preferred campsite, please contact Lisabetta vedova di Alessandro, Autocrat for NRWC, at firstname.lastname@example.org

Have you seen this badge at events recently? —>
If not, you soon will. It is being worn by anyone who wishes to show they support the creation of an omnibus — or umbrella — Peerage to recognize non-rattan martial prowess. It is also being used as (or added to) avatars and profile pictures in various social media.
The badge was created by the Martial Peerage FaceBook group as a way to promote awareness of the movement.
Editor’s note: The badge graphic — and variants for different martial interests — was designed by Mistress Ysabeau Tiercelin of AEthelmearc.
