Registration Information

Greetings An TIr! We look forward to hosting that most glorious of events, 12th Night once again!  Please visit the event website at  to find sign up sheets for meeting space, a list of currently confirmed meetings, a class sign up sheet, and more.

We will have Paypal available or we accept cash (US$ only please) or make checks payable to “SCA, Inc. Barony of Adiantum.” There is an ATM on site.

Event Gate opens at 3 pm Friday, Jan. 10. You can check in to the hotel any time.

Please note the following:

  • All the rooms at Valley River Inn are booked, and there is a VIP block reserved for Royals and their retinues, Princes and Princesses, certain Great Officers, merchants, and vigils.
  • VIP block rooms will be allocated next fall, after September Crown Tourney so that we can consult with the outgoing and incoming Royalty as to their wishes.
  • All the rest of the rooms at the hotel fall into the SCA populace block with the discounted room cost.


  • If you do want to cancel your room at Valley River Inn, send an email to and state clearly who you are and what type of room you reserved. We have a list of all the room reservations and will make notes as to who wants to cancel. 
  • If you have someone who wants to take over your reservation, please send their modern and SCA names, email and phone number along with your request to cancel your reservation. We will contact the new person and verify the transfer, then make that change with the hotel while preserving our discounted rate. We may have to make those changes with the hotel all at the same time, which means that they may not formally take place until late December.
  • If you would like to be on a waiting list for any DISCOUNTED SCA RATE ROOMS that are cancelled without a named replacement, you must send an email to Include your modern and SCA names, email, and phone number. We will save all your emails, which are time/date stamped, and make a list of requests. Nothing can be done about a substitution until we receive notice of cancellation from someone, and that will probably not occur until the month before 12th Night.
  • Again, we don’t expect to hear of any cancelled rooms until next November or December when life will have caught up with some people and they realize that they can’t attend 12th Night.

Two Simple Cheeses That You Can Make

Teacher: Ladyship Anja Snihova’

2 Hours

Class Size Limit: 10

All Ages

Class Fee: $5 for Materials

Cheese is difficult, right? Nopity, nope. There are two very simple cheeses that anyone can make, that

appear all over the world and can even be done in camp over an open fire! Bring a 1 cup container to

take some home with you and a gallon milk jug, if you would like some of the whey. We’ll make/finish two

cheeses during class and spice them. The handout contains how-to’s, suggestions for equipment,

suggestions for “additions”, some recipes for using the cheeses, problems that you can encounter and

some whey recipes as well as a bit of history and the variations found around the world. Under-12’s need

a parental unit or reasonable facsimile there-of. Dairy allergies are a problem in this class.

They didn’t have Amazon or even a corner drugstore! Where did folks get their OTC medicines? Where

did they get soap? How about things that smelled good? Flea and louse remedies? We will be covering

Europe in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, but the remedies of the people, not the doctors, physickers

and apothecaries. This is a “talky” kind of class, so kids who can’t sit still may need to be at the back of

the room.



TAK: A new “Medieval”; game

Teacher: Lord Seamus the Shameless

45 Minutes

Class Size Limit: 10

Ages 11+

TAK was invented long LONG ago, in the ancient court of Vintas. Played by nobility and commoner alike,

the game is easy to learn, and yet surprisingly complex in its strategy. It is scalable to different levels of

complexity, and can be enjoyed by children as young as ten, or adults as old as their hearts admit.

Actually invented in 2014 by Patrick Rothfuss and James Ernest, inspired by The Kingkiller Chronicles.

But, remarkably medieval looking, transportable, and a great pastime for SCA events.



Persona Development Through Song

Teacher: Lord Seamus the Shameless

1 Hour

No Class Size Limit

Ages 11+

Many songs exist (modern or period, filk or original) about period battles, eras, or important people. For

those of us who are a bit *ahem* less research-minded, dissecting the stories presented in songs

presents an easier entry point for persona development than a history book.
