The Shire of Sterlynge Vayle invites our friends and neighbors to join us for our weekly fight practice and picnic in Otsiningo Park on Sunday, July 15, 2007. This will be a very relaxed get together for fighting, eating and socializing with our friends.
We will begin gathering around noon, and will go until people are tired of fighting. Please come join us to share stories and swordplay. If you know of anyone who is interested in checking out SCA fighting for the first time, this will be the perfect opportunity. Please bring any loaner gear that you may have for newcomers. This will be in a beautiful public park, so there will probably be people wandering over to watch the fighting and maybe ask some questions. Garb is strongly encouraged. We will provide meats to cook on the grill – hamburgers, hot dogs, and sausages, as well as rolls, fixings, and ice. Please bring your picnic gear, a dish to pass, and drinks.
We will also be having period dancing! Lady Gytha has offered to come and teach a few medieval dances to anyone who would like to learn. So come, enjoy the music, and let your feet learn a few new steps!
This will be a very casual gathering – it is not an official SCA event. That means no site fee, and no non-member surcharge (and no event paperwork for the Exchequer (me) – Yea!), but we would appreciate a modest donation to help us cover the cost of the insurance certificate and meat. For more information, feel free to contact me, Lady Kayley (MKA Michele Greenmun) at email@example.com, or our Knight Marshal, Lord Rundwulfe (MKA Kory Greenmun) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please drop me a quick e-mail or give me a call at 607-621-2122 to let me know how many are coming so we know how much meat to buy.
