Hey guys! So since there seemed to be a lot of interest in dance, we had discussed at the last meeting to do dance nights. Here are the days and times set up:
Every other Monday, starting October 14th at 8:00 PM to 10:00PM. I could not get a great big Morton room like everyone seemed to want but I did get a room in Morton. The room is 227. It seemed to have a set-up where it was desks lined up. I’m guessing this should work whereas we can just move the desks out of the way for dancing so long as we make sure they are put back into nice rows.
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 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
