FRIDAY – INFORMAL GATHERING
Come for a chinwag at the Old Goulburn Brewery, from 6pm. This fine venue is known to the SCA, having once been used for West Kingdom Purgatorio, the only kingdom event to be held in Lochac’s borders prior to our becoming a kingdom.
The Brewery has three boutique brews, and meals are available at reasonable prices. Some nibbles will be provided by the event.
SATURDAY – THE SERIOUS STUFF
The St Saviour’s Anglican Cathedral is a beautiful setting for an event, with a fine feasting hall.
There will be a tournament on the Cathedral lawns, a buffet lunch and then the main feast on the Saturday evening.
There will be courts – details to be finalised with The Majesties.
SUNDAY – HAVE A GO DAY
Sunday’s activities will be held at Cockatrice Farm, a small property growing truffle oaks, organic herbs and vegetables, and old breeds of animals.
Sunday is “have a go day”. The concept is that you can spend 15 minutes trying anything out: archery, horse riding, fighter training and a whole range of arts and sciences. (Yes, we would be grateful for offers to lead activities, and being a new group there will be plenty of Okewaite newcomers looking for new experiences.)
Lunch (augmented leftovers) will be provided.
