If you haven’t visited Tasmania before, be careful! Under no circumstances should you give yourself time to explore, see the sights and get to know the people! Many mainlanders have done this, and have then gone home, packed their stuff, sold their houses and moved here permanently. You might be next! Beware!
Due to changes in the SCA’s insurance, all non-members attending an SCA event must pay a fee of $5 per head. This applies to everyone regardless of age, even children. The fee is remitted to our insurer and is inclusive of GST. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Insurance $5 non-members only Compulsory one-off payment, covers the entire weekend
Tourney and BBQ $5 members, $7 non-members
Investiture $25 members, $30 non-members
Children (under 12) $1 Note: insurance fee applies to children too
It’s a very good idea to book as soon as possible. To avoid giving our cooks conniptions, we are capping feast attendance at 100 people. If you book late or not at all, you may be invited to take the spring air and play in the playground while the rest of us are eating.
To book, contact the Steward, Baron Karl Faustus von Aachen (Eric TF Bat) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be ready to tell him how many people you have in your party, including children and adults, and how many members and non-members. Remember that all non-members, both adults and children, must pay an insurance fee of $5 for the weekend regardless of how much they attend. You can take out or renew your membership at the Lochac website; use that page also to get free memberships for any dependent children of an adult member.
You can pay at the door or in advance. If the feast is booked out, payments made in advance will guarantee a place, and we will contact anyone who books without payment to arrange payment so you jump to the front of the queue. If it’s not booked out, there is no penalty for paying at the door, although we reserve the right to turn away unbooked arrivals.
Direct Deposit is the best way to pay. The barony’s bank details are:
Account Number: 100142933
Account Name: The Society for Creative Anachronism Ltd – TAS
Please place your mundane name in the reference and send a copy of the payment details through to our reeve, Elspeth Jamieson (Julie Lawler), at email@example.com, as well as all relevant details to the steward.
Cheques can be made out to The Society for Creative Anachronism Ltd – TAS
Include all relevant information with your cheque. If you include an email address, your booking will be acknowledged as soon as it is received.
Locations and Directions
Lightwood has been invited to host the investiture of Hrolf Herjolfssen and Madelaine de Bourgogne as baron and baroness of Ynys Fawr, on the weekend of the 20th and 21st of October 2012. Here is how to get there.
Make your way to Hobart. If you’re in a hurry, we recommend QANTAS or Virgin Australia; we do not recommend Tiger Airways, ever.
If you prefer a more relaxed voyage, the Spirit of Tasmania sets out from Melbourne to Devonport every evening; the drive from there to Hobart takes about half a day.
From Hobart, take the Southern Outlet and the Huon Highway (A6) to the Huon Valley. Once you’ve made it over the mighty hill at Vince’s Saddle, it’s a fairly straight drive through Grove, Huonville, Franklin, Castle Forbes Bay and Port Huon to Geeveston, around 50 minutes all up. Signposts will show you to Heritage Park.
The investiture and feast will be at Glen Huon, which is a right turn immediately after the bridge across the Huon River at Huonville if you’re coming from Hobart, or a left turn before the bridge if you’re coming from Geeveston, and about a ten minute drive. All roads are paved and two-way, although there are some stretches where the scenery may distract you with its gorgeousness so drive safely.
