Now that we kick back into the fall season I wanted to call attention to some of the many endeavors that happen into the shire. Quintavia is a large and active Shire and if you know someone who might be interested in any or all of these activities please drag them along.
Start on the Street Demo — September 16th (setup starts at 10am) runs to 5pm.
Start on the street (https://www.startonthestreet.org/start-street-fall-edition) is a wonderful arts / crafts festival that the City of Worcester puts on where there are 300+ local artists. We have a great location in front of Elm park where we talk about SCA and demo some of the martial activities. Come in garb or not but this is our best demo of the year hosted by Baroness Fortune so you don’t want to miss it.
King + Queens Fencing Champs (December 8th)
Quintavia is hosting K+Q fencing champs this year at the Nashoba reginal high school in Bolton ma. We’ll discuss this in the coming months but even if you don’t fence it’s a good spectacle to watch and we also need help with setup, gate, heralds, list runners and the like.
The Shire hosts a number of Weekly Practices in Heavy List, Fencing, Archery and Thrown Weapons. See https://quintavia.eastkingdom.org/events-practices/practices-meetings/ for more information.
European dance continues on the first Tuesday of the month! Next practice is Tuesday September 4th from 7:30 – 9:30 pm at the Camelot Common House. See https://quintavia.eastkingdom.org/events-practices/directions/ for directions.
Scribal A+S Moots continue at the 4rth Tuesday of the month! Next moot is August 28th.
August 28th – 15th C Gothic manuscripts: Part 1, illumination style and calligraphy
September 25th – 15th C Gothic manuscripts: Part 2, white work
October 23rd – Making Oak Gall Ink
Please note you can come to one or both of the 15th C Gothic classes, but will get the most out of it if you can attend both parts.
Scribal help and troubleshooting will still be available at all moots as time allows.
As always, the Moot will be 7-9pm at the Camelot Common House (main room) located at 69 Village Ct in Berlin, MA.
