I just want to take a moment say thank you to everyone who came out to our Hafla on Saturday!
First I’d like to thank the set-up and clean up crews: Rosina and Andreiko, Corwin – you weren’t able to stay for the event but came and help out anyways. Our head cat-herder Matthias, Meabh, Mikjáll, and his Grace Edward and his squire (so sorry I can’t recall your name!) Set up was done with twenty minutes to spare and clean up was even faster. You are all amazing.
My Kitchen crew: Lord Alexsei and Lady Elvira led the charge and delivered food that was raved about, throughout the hall. Thank you for making it all work in a new space.
The magnificent Lady Toi….without you the hall would have been bare and our tummies slightly less full. Thank you for everything you do for this event year after year.
Her Grace Thyra who is my dace group liaison and music provider.
A huge thank you goes out to our dancers (BRS, Baklava, and the Eves) and out attendees. We love seeing you each year and without you all it would be one pretty dull day! I hope I’ve not missed anyone but if I have and even if I haven’t: Thank you, thank you, thank you.
It’s such a pleasure and a joy to help put this together but I could never do it alone.
Until next year!
Lady Perronnelle de Croy
This year’s hafla menu has been posted! Feel free to take a look at the various treats and treasures promised by our talented chefs!
We can’t wait to see you all there and the schedule will be posted later tonight!
The Defenders are the Shire of Quintavia’s Champions. They have won the right to bear their titles and regalia through our annual Defender’s Tourney.
This year we will be choosing the defenders with the good will of our Neighbors in Bergental at their annual Sommer Draw event at the beautiful Moses scout reservation, June 15-17th.(The tournaments will be on the 16th) The shire member that places the best in each of the competition will be named as the Defender for the current year.
Specific to the Arts and Science competition
Our annual Arts and Sciences competition is being held at Sommer Draw in Bergental this weekend. Bring your best completed projects or works in progress. Documentation will not be required, but you will be asked to provide a quick write up describing your submission. The entries will be judged blindly by a panel of judges and populace vote. Good luck to all, and we look forward to seeing your projects next weekend!
If you are curious on the shire borders, please see this map. http://wiki.eastkingdom.org/index.php?title=File:Shiremap.JPG
More information on the Defenders, and who the current / past champions where can be found here,
For those who won’t be at 50th year, come and partake in a day of friendly competition and comradeship. I look forward to seeing you there.
Please note! Our location for Yule has changed due to a scheduling conflict at the church.
We will now be at the Mosaic Commons Common House, 25 Village Lane, Berlin, MA 01420, from 1:30-5:30pm
All other details remain the same.
It’s nearing that time of year again! Yule is right around the corner and we will be holding our Shire’s too-cool Yule on Saturday, December 19th from 12pm to 6pm.
It’s a low-key pot-luck get-together that’s garb optional. Games and activities are planned for the younger members of the Shire. We will also be giving out our Keeper Awards!
Yule Gift Swap
We will be doing a Viking (aka Yankee) Gift Swap. If you want to be part of the swap, please bring a wrapped, SCA-themed gift of about $10 value. This swap is for adults, there is a separate gift swap for children with a $5 gift. Youth (17 and under) gifts do not need to be SCA-themed, but should be appropriate for either gender. (Ideas are books, crafts, or puzzles for a wide variety of age groups.)
