A&S War Point at Pennsic

Greetings friends!

This is a momentous year, for there is an Arts and Sciences War Point!!

Come see the amazing work of artisans from across the Knowne Worlde at the A&S War Point on Wednesday, August 5.

And you, yes you, can contribute to the War effort! All those who have been recognized with a Kingdom-level A&S award may vote for the most worthy and best displays. The winning team will carry the War Point!

Voting is any time between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. After that, the artisans will sit with their entries – so stick around to meet and greet them!

In service,

Known World Metal & Glass Symposium Registration Open

The very first Known World Metal & Glass Symposium is coming up soon! Northshield is looking forward to welcoming metalworkers, glassworkers, potters, armorers, jewelers, weaponsmiths, black and whitesmiths of all levels.

September 2-7 will see a multitude of classes on everything about metal and glass that we can find teachers for. We have classes in smelting, blacksmithing, armoring, lampworking, coining, chasing and repousse, and many other things. A pottery track has been added, as well. There are classes for the beginner as well as the advanced artisans and those in between. (more…)

Volunteer Opportunities at Pennsic

Only 4 3 days to Pennsic!

And it is not to soon to think of Post Pennsic Clean Up! Volunteer positions available on post-Pennsic cleanup crew! Here’s an example of what you can do to help:

Tasks for Friday August 7th: Clear out Pennsic University classroom tents: You need to be able to fold up tables and chairs, take those tables and chairs to the Great Hall, stack the chairs in sets of 50, stack tables neatly, gather fire extinguishers and trash cans from tents, bag and take trash to dumpster, line up extinguishers by tens, rinse cans. Depending on the size of the crew, perhaps 2 hours time.

Stop by the Town Hall during Pennsic and introduce yourself to the Volunteer Coordinator, Baroness Helena, and see what all the various jobs available for volunteers are!

SCA 50th Memorial Shield Wall Project

As we celebrate our Society completing its 50th year, we look around and see gaps. Dust to dust it is said, but “no one dies who lives within a heart” (Michael Longcor / Duke Moonwulf) and we want to share those who are lost to time but living in our hearts at this time. So, whether it is a person or some kind of entity (households, groups and events) that is no longer part of the fabric of our lives, the Shield Wall will be a highlight at the 50th Anniversary Celebration Event to share with the attendees (and hopefully on our website.)

We invite citizens of all 20 kingdoms to visit our website, , and submit as many entries as you’d like for this project. We can give you the opportunity to submit your entry online via our convenient webform or you can mail us your entry (see details on website).

It is up to you to help us all remember our absent friends, households, groups, or events. We will give them all a place of honour at the event.

Populace Processional at Pennsic

My fellow MidRealmers!

At Pennsic this year, as we process to Opening Ceremonies, we will be singing “Born on the List Field” and “Where are the Dragons”.

Tradition holds that the words to “Born on the List Field” are not to be written down. That means that everyone sings it a little bit differently. I have uploaded my version of the chorus to the link below.

“Where are the Dragons” changes a little bit every reign to match the current Monarchs’ names. I have also added some verses in the intervening years. Words and a recording of a few lyrics and the chorus can also be found at the link below.

Join us and sing the glory of the MidRealm! Muster for Opening Ceremonies begins at 8 am on Sunday, August 2 at the Pennsic War!

In strength, in service and in song, I am

Midrealm Royal Staffing at Pennsic

Good People of the Midrealm, I am in need of your Service.

With Pennsic only a short time off, we find that we still have many open times available for Peer on Duty, Gate Guards, and Retaining for both Their Royal Majesties, and Their Royal Highness’s. Please help us by volunteering just an hour of your time, and by spreading the word (and the link below) that helping hands are needed.

I thank you in advance, and am ever so grateful for your assistance.
