Evening Feast

The word "pot-luck" appears in the 16th century English work of Thomas Nashe, and used to mean "food provided for an unexpected or uninvited guest, the luck of the pot."

Bring a dish to pass and join us for an informal buffet feast. Historically accurate dishes are appreciated, but not required. Please bring a list of ingredients, including all spices and seasonings. If you bring a recipe you've researched, please share whatever documentation you have. Thanks!

Want to try making a period recipe, but don't know where to start? Here's two great resources:

Target archery is weather permitting and open to all event participants. Details to come.

New to SCA archery? The knowledge, construction, and safe use of pre-17th century style equipment are the goals of SCA archery. Modern equipment is permitted provided it meets our standards. Bring what you have, but be prepared for SCA marshals to inspect and perhaps prohibit use of your bow or arrows during our event. Ask to borrow - there is loaner equipment available and many members are willing to share what they have!
