October A&S

October 1st: Shiny Hats and Feast Etiquette with His Grace Sir Talymar
For the newcomer, there is a lot of information to keep straight. Who exactly is a Duke? What does that mean? What’s with all the pagentry? Come join His Grace Sir Talymar for a lecture on the meanings of Shiny Hats, along with a possible discussion on the etiquette of Feast.

October 8th: Awards: What are they and How do they work? with Wilhelm Salzburger
Geared towards both newcomers and SCA-vets alike, this class will give an overview on awards in the SCA, specifically Kingdom and Baronial level awards. What they’re given for, and how to reccomend someone.

October 15: Medieval Game Night: Glückhaus with Wilhelm Salzburger
Come play a game of chance with my first Glückhaus board! Simple rules, played with dice, will create a fun evening for everyone. You need bring only yourselves!

October 22: The Plague and Economics: A Game with Wilhelm Salzburger
This is my attempt at a class taught by Lord Brannith Marius of Okenshield. His mundane background in economics inspired a game that could help people understand the beginnings of a defineable middle class as a direct result of the plague, with all of the fun and (almost) 100% less plague!

October 29th: Bardic (Halloween Edition) with Everyone!

Bring yourselves for a night of stories and entertainment, hopefully Halloween themed, but not required!

September A&S

September 10th: Garb Night, Part I
Beginning garb for the newbies first event. Bring a tshirt that fits comfortably to use as a template. We will NOT be destroying the shirt, just using the shirt as a basis for the fit of your tunic. Sizing and cutting out of fabrics will most likely happen this evening, with possibly a bit of sewing?

September 17th: Garb Night, Part II
Sewing of the tunics will continue, but be prepared to take extra time outside the meetings to finish, as we may be limited on sewing machines.

September 24th: Bardic Night
Bring your stories, songs, poetry, performances, and yourselves! This is a night of revelry and merriment, and it is NOT limited to the medieval. Everything from “No shit, there I was…” stories from SCA events to “You won’t believe what happened at work…”

Also folks, I have a report due on October 1st (thanks to Pompeia for the heads up). I need to know what projects you’ve worked on, classes you’ve taken, classes you’ve taught (and if you taught, a general idea of how many students attended). This will be anything done after July 1st, so for those of you who went to War, I hope you remember what classes you took!

Yours in Service

Summer Meetings

Please note that during Ohio University’s “finals week” there is no meeting.

June 5, 2012 – NO MEETING

Summer meetings will resume on June 12, 2012 at the park (Southside Park) on Dairy Lane.

Meeting Time: 7pm with Fighters gathering around 6:30pm for early practice.

Athens Streetmap - Southside ParkSouthside Park is located off of Richland Avenue, on Dairy Lane. Looking at the map above, if you are following US-33 to Route 682 exit, simply follow the roundabout until you can exit onto Richland Ave. and then make the first right, this is Dairy Lane. There is a sign for the Dairy Barn Arts Center. The parking lot for the first shelter house (seen from Richland Avenue) is the first right on Dairy Lane. The large Dernehealde banner may be hanging on the shelter house, or there may be a group of fighters getting an early start on their
practice.
