Join us at our Annual Squire's Tourney April 28th, 2012 in the Canton
of Ealdnordwuda.

A&S Activities:
Competition:

A slight spin on a traditional bean count. Comment booklets will be available for each entry. There will be two winners--one a “Laurel’s Pick” and the other the “Populace’s Choice”. Ties will be broken by the Event Staff.

Youth Activity:
Lady Anthoinette Martel
A tradition of Squires Revolt is the afternoon barroom brawl. The actual fight is among adult fighters in heavy weapons and rapier. However, bystanders can join in by throwing special “weapons” and attack animals in from the sides. Children who would like to participate from the sidelines may join us for a special “weapons” making class to be used later in the brawl.

Period “Cookies”:
Bring a batch of period “cookies” or small pastries to be displayed in the A&S area. Votes will be counted with beans by the populace. Entries must include a complete ingredient list at minimum to avoid allergy issues, but can also include documentation and recipes.
Leftovers will be served during the dessert course of feast so please plate on a disguised disposable serving platter/bowl if you won’t be in attendance for feast. Knives and napkins will be available for display.

Classes:
10-11am in Classroom 1 "Calligraphy Basics: getting started" by Lord Pomeroy
Description: A class where we can discuss any aspect of lettering from the laying out to the putting ink to paper. I will have paper and ink available for those who would like to start practicing. Left handed? Me too, so come try it out.

11am-noon Outside (near fencing list) "Introduction to Kumihimo" by Fujinami no Kaede

Indoor classroom space is limited, but there is plenty of outdoor space for classes on concrete or on grass.

Dancing:
Dancing is a community event! Saltatoris Dance Guild will lead the village in some spirited dances even the double left-footed can enjoy. Shake off the hearth dust of winter and celebrate the coming of May! All ages and skill levels welcome.

  • This site is dry--alcohol theory classes are welcome, but the church’s policy is dry.
  • Indoors and outdoors fire is prohibited (candles on tables for feast might be provided by the staff for ambiance, but please leave your own at home)
  • Archery and thrown weapons are prohibited within the Lansing city limits.


  • Most areas indoors and many parts of the outdoors are wheelchair accessible.

  • Much of the day’s activities take place outdoors: plan garb and daycamps for late April in Michigan weather.
