Arts and Science Defender Competition

  • Items entered for competition should be something that
    your persona would have either made or had.
  • You can choose a “persona for the day” if the item is
    outside the bounds of your usual persona or if you have not
    yet developed one. You will still need to be able to discuss
    how the item fit into the life of your persona for the day
  • Each entrant can enter 1 or 2 items. If you enter two,
    only the higher of your two scores will be considered for the
  • Each entrant should declare their intent to compete,
    along with what they will be entering, no later than October
    1st so we can find the appropriate judges
  • Each entrant will have 10-15 minutes to present their
    entry, followed by 10-15 minutes for the judges to ask
    questions. There is no need to fill the entire time if you
    don’t need it.
  • We will be using the Kingdom A&S judging forms
    Entrants should take a look at the forms ahead of time.
  • Fear not, you will not be judged against the KAS
    standards! Using the forms provides good consistency, but
    should not imply KAS level judging standards.
  • NOTE: given last month’s declaration by the OLCC on
    homebrew competitions (,
    the only way we can accept entries of alcoholic beverages
    is if the entrant lives within 5 minutes of the site, and
    can host the judging in their own home. This is a drag, but
    I don’t see any alternative at present.

Other Events

by The Honorable Company of Artillers:
known as the Archery Guild, their focus is to research,
recreate and practice the skills of making and shooting
traditional archery gear. In turn they record and share what
is learn through print and electronic media, lectures,
classes and workshops to preserve and expand archery
heritage. They will mentor to anyone who desires to learn the
skills of traditional archery.  Enjoy observing their
skills and crafts up close as they demonstrate them
throughout the day.

Artisan’s Display:
 You may bring
finished works and/or works in progress. While documentation
is not necessary, although you are welcome to include it if
you wish, at minimum please tell us what your item is, when
it would be from, and where. There will be Populace Choice
voting for determining favorite displays.  If you are a
performer and wish to present these talents, please be ready
to provide entertainment for the evening feast. Works
showcased may be original or not.  Again, there will be
voting for Populace Choice. The only “rule” is what you
display must be representative of period or SCA.  If you
are interested in participating, please contact Arlys
ten.tsacmoc@65yelC<>. While
we expect to have a good amount of room, the autocrat team
needs to be able to plan the space. I look forward to hearing
from you all and seeing your wonderful entries!

Scribal Arts
There will be a scribal arts drop-in
room from 10:30am until end of day.  Kingdom charters
will be available and scribal books will be on hand.
 Please drop by to paint, discuss scribal activities,
online resources and where to buy supplies locally.

fabulous Artsy Fartsy please consider participating in a
basket auction.  All proceeds will be used for the

period items you would like to put up for auction or bring
