            Greetings!  Once
again, autumn is upon us, and we gather to celebrate the abundance
of harvest. The theme this year is “Grains”. Following
tradition, we will have NO SITE FEE.  We encourage our
neighbors to come and enjoy a laid back afternoon and a
potluck feast with us. Classes will be offered, as well as outdoor
space for heavy fighting,

Fencing and
thrown weapons (weather permitting and marshals available). We will
have a Subtlety contest, with the winner to be announced at
the feast. Our Glaukhaus board with be available for those who wish
to play this period game. Several classes are being taught,
most of them on the theme of grains. We plan to offer Wheat
Weaving, Ottoman Rice Pudding, a brewing class, and (we hope)
a class on making a simple Farmer’s cheese. We will be able to
have a talk on the use of hawks and hounds for hunting in period,
courtesy of members of Hunt Guild.

 
         For the last couple years we
ended up with a number of people who brought their textile projects
to work on, and we had quite a fine circle of weaving,
spinning, and other fiber arts. Our shire’s Arts & Sciences
Champion, HL Rosamond Winder has offered to host a “Spinner’s
social”, just a time to sit and chat and explore spinning. She
has offered to teach beginners how to use a drop spindle, and
will have a variety of less common fibers so that people can play
around with them and see how they work.  I would like to
encourage anyone who wants to bring their handiwork to come
and share it.  Musicians are entirely welcome to come and
play, alone, together or whatever. 

            We
have decided to do a Silent Auction as a fund raiser for our Thrown
Weapons equipment, which has seen a lot of use this year. It
was suggested to us as a way to bring to downsize our SCA closets
by bringing usable items that someone else might have a need
for.
