As is traditional in the lands of Ildhafn, we will be celebrating the feast of Saint Catherine. Although some years this is an extravagant affair, this year's celebrations will be a little more modest as we relax in the afterglow of July Coronation. Split over the two days of the weekend of November 27th and 28th 2010, this will still be an event not to miss!
Saturday (late afternoon around 4pm) sees the hall opened for dancing, games and an arts & sciences display (including the Baronial competition), followed by a sumptuous feast cooked by our very own Lord Androu le Greyn.
On Sunday, in Cornwall Park, there will be both heavy combat and rapier tournaments to test the mettle of the Barony's fine militia.
$30 per adult, + $2 non SCA members
Children: 0-5 free; 6-10: $10; 11-16: $20
Note that there is no charge to attend the tourneys on the Sunday; a contribution for a potluck picnic is encouraged.
Saturday's dancing, games and feast will be held in the St George's Church Hall, Lake Road, Takapuna (Auckland).
Sunday's tournaments and pot luck lunch will be held in Cornwall Park, Green Lane West (Auckland) at the Band Rotunda.
Bookings for the feast will close a week before the event, on Friday the 19th of November. After that you may attend, but you will be fed (and seated) strictly at the cook's discretion. Bookings are not required for the Sunday activities (though it would be helpful to have an idea of who intends to fight).
The booking form will be linked from http://ildhafn.lochac.sca.org/stcaths2010 as soon as it is available, but please mark out the dates in your calendar now, finish that new outfit (before it's the last minute), and tell your friends to come along! We look forward to seeing you there.
