Late News: Red Dragon Update

Regarding Red Dragon Weatherreddragon50

The current forecast calls for a 35-40% chance of rain from 2:00 to 7:00 PM on Saturday, per Intellicast, Wunderground and weather.com. The weather forecast has been a serious moving target for the past week, going from dry to deluge and everywhere in between, sometimes on an hourly basis.

We are going with the main outdoor plan at this time. Armored combat, rapier, archery, thrown weapons, and youth combat should plan to be outside as previously discussed at the staff meetings. Marshals: consider adjusting your tournament schedules to get as much in as possible earlier in the day.

Be advised: the ground is wet as we’ve had rain all this week in Columbus. I’ll be at the site this afternoon to check on the various outdoor venues. (Marshals: the site is available from 3:30 to 5:00 PM today if you want to stop by and look at your venues.) (more…)

Fundraiser Cookbook for Midrealm Royal at Pennsic

King sm crownMistress Keiley send greetings!

We have a very awesome opportunity to better outfit Midrealm Royal Encampment at Pennsic, and cut the work for the staff in half if not more, but we need your help. We need to raise some funds for a new storage trailer that can be brought to site and will cut down on our need for the Cooper’s trailer and or the use of personal trucks/trailers to haul items to site from the land of trailers off in the abyss! We also will be purchasing a food trailer that will make the kitchen easier for all to use for the meal plan of those camped in Royal as well as any parties such as the Known World party and any other needs that are deemed fit determined by the kitchen coordinator! This is such a fantastic idea and we need your assistance to make it a reality!

With that I would like to kick off this fantastic endeavor with a cook book by the Middle Kingdom’s populace. Period or non period foods, all will be welcomed as long as they are YUMMY! Please submit any recipe that you are proud to serve to guests with a category of Appetizers, Soup, Bread, Breakfast, Main Dishes, Side Dishes, Desserts, and Divers Sundries! Please include your SCA name and group you are from! (more…)
