Brass Ring Thing VII

Once again, good gentles, do we invite all that is good and great from these Sylvan Lands to celebrate the medieval origins of the carousel and to give aide to the good gentles of the Herschell Carousel Museum. As always, this is a FREE event to all SCAdians who attend in garb and troll in. The day will be full of entertainment, pageantry, arts, games, food and tournaments in Heavy Weapons, Archery, Thrown Weapons, Fencing and, yes, Equestrian. Period dogs under their owner’s control, are welcome.

It is a day of grand tournaments. Fighters, fencers, archers and throwers, come prepared to show your skill and be cheered on by the crowd! It is a day of grand Art. Lady Isolda will be hosting the Artisans’ Tents and invites one and all to come and share their skills. Work on projects, demonstrate your skills, display your art and visit with fellow artisans. It is a day of grand entertainment. Musicians, gamers, dancers, singers, thespians, jesters, drummers, jugglers and more are invited to come and share their talents. We encourage all who enjoy performing to come and celebrate the day. This year dancers will have their own area with shade, refreshments and a place to rest their feet. It is a day of knowledge. Please come and display your collections, books, games or those items of which you are most proud. You will have the chance to talk about what you love most about the middle ages and share your knowledge with others. It is a day to show who we are. We ask that you bring your good spirit, pageantry and good will. There is room for banners so please show your personal and group devices proudly. This is a day to display all that is good in the SCA to the general public. It is a chance to share our hobby and invite new people to try our activities. The Brass Ring Thing is an opportunity to share the joy of our events and our activities with those that know little about us.
