This year Harvest Days will be holding the Kingdom Tournament of Chivalry, in which Knights stand ready to fight unbelted fighters from across the Kingdom. Unbelts have the opportunity to trade blows with the Knights of the Kingdom for training purposes, or to test their skill.
After the TOC we will be holding our Traditional Tavern Brawl, in which combatants bring unusual and humorous duct tape foam weapons. Children are encouraged to create their own foam projectiles during children's activities and add to the festivities by targeting their favorite fighter.

I would like to thank all the wonderful Chroniclers of the Oaken Region of the Middle Kingdom for all the work they have done.
Being a Chronicler is often a thankless, and over-looked position. However, it is by the efforts of the Chroniclers that our wonderful history as an organisation is recorded. Without the Chroniclers, we would not have much, if any, history of how the SCA has grown.

Who would have thought that 10 years ago this small (only 600 people showed up) event would grow to be the amazing event that it is today. Over the years we have weathered some of the worst that North West Ohio in May can throw at you. It has been hot (in the early years it was) and cold (down to 38°F) and windy (we had a tornado touch down within 2 miles of the site once) and wet. But mostly it has been wet. Every year we have prayed for sunny, warm and dry weather, but every year the weather just laughs at us and sits a low pressure zone overhead. Location:

I need some help researching and recreating clothing for my personna. He is a mid 16th century Swiss (Canton of Bern, somewhere rural) Anabaptist. The main difficulty here is finding just what the early Anabaptists dressed like, my research has led me to believe it will be something of a simplified version of common peasant clothes of that time -peasant clothes are hard to find too. I already (mostly) know about regular shirts, pants, etc. What I need to know is what would be authentic regarding Jackets/coats, vests, etc.
