[ART] Uprising XXIII

Uprising XXIII will be held from June 17 - 21, 2009 in the glorious Barony of One Thousand Eyes. The site for the event is once again the Ancestral Youngforest lands in Firth, ID.

Melee Scenarios
Armored combat melees will be held on Thursday, June 18th and Saturday, June 20th. Scenarios are yet to be determined but will be posted here and in the gate book as they are decided upon. Muster for fighting will be held at 9 AM each morning, with combat to begin at 10 AM.

Uprising may be a war, but we find time for the peaceful activities as well. Along with a slate of classes (teachers always welcome) other peaceful activities are planned.

Fool's Ball
Want to learn the dances for the Grand Ball but are afraid you won't be able to get it? Want to learn dance for the first time? New to the SCA and having a little culture shock? Wanna meet people and be treated like you are the most beautiful person on the planet? Did you know that many modern rock songs follow the exact same beat and time progression as period dances? Do you want a chance to practice and learn period dances with familiar music? Tangle Bransle to Tesla? Anello to Aerosmith? A pavanne to Pink Floyd?

Then this is the Ball for you. Come to the Fool's Ball and get your groove on while learning important SCA social skills! Thursday night after evening Court, some Evil Cadet of a Disreputable Scot will present period dance to slightly out-of-period music. Come learn, dance, and have a good time.

Grand Ball
Welcome all to the Grand Ball, a chance for romance to enhance your verve! I'll serve up a curve with my agents of eloquence and teach you the value of grace and extravagance. Fear not! I'll capture the rapture of dance in your heart and we'll start your noble education with a vacation from the world. You'll learn, feel the burn and make her yearn for your touch. It's not much, but it's more than you'll get with your current skill set!

Join us Saturday evening after Court in the Grand Pavillion to dance and see why this is a skill you NEED to have!

Privy Editors' Circle
Join Their Majesties (self proclaimed) Privy Editors for an evening of crepes, conversation, and apostrophes in the Province of Arrow's Flight Pavillion.
