[ANS] Loch-Tober Fest

Their Serpentine Excellencies, William & Katya, Lord & Lady Loch Soilleir, invite everyone to a day of melees and artistry at Loch-tober Fest!

If you only make one event this fall, let it be Loch-tober Fest, Oct 30-Nov 1, 2009! There will be much more than challenging melee scenarios crafted by Sir Alexis and Don Tristan: A&S, youth A&S and Bardic championships (You can see all of our championship competitions and information at the Championships Main Page.) Children’s activities, Archery, and Questing: There are rumours of witches about the barony, and talk of launching pumpkins with trebuchets...

For lunch, $1 Sausages-on-the-Stick with delicious German mustards. For dinner, Their Graces Ulsted and Ebigardis will be crafting such a German feast that the Landsknechts of old will return from their resting places in Germany.

In addition, the Loch’s Brewers Guild will be bringing out batches of their famous beer and challenges you to bring yours and see whose brew reigns supreme in our first Brewing Competition, with a special prize for first time brewers.

This is THE event to which you should bring a newcomer. Not only are there are lots of exciting things to see and do; if that newcomer has never attended an SCA event, their site fee is CUT IN HALF (50% off) (no NMS for newcomers only)
