The challenge – Make 6 of a largess type item (same or similar)
and present them at opening court for all to see or bring them to
A&S within an hour of opening court. Make sure items are
discreetly marked with the entrant’s name. The winner will be
awarded at court that night and will be given one of each entry,
2nd place (if there are enough contestants) gets a choice of 2
items, and the rest goes to largesse. For a better understanding of
what largesse is, check this out:

Iron Needle

Presented by HL Adeliza a

This contest will also be largesse focused. This will start
right after opening court. Adeliza will be at A&S for an
hour after opening court with supplies for competitors, but
competitors should bring their own tools and any supplies they
specifically would like to have on hand. The competition will end
Sunday morning early enough so the winner can be announced at
closing court. This time will be nailed down as the event schedule
gets finalized. There will be an adult and a youth category.

Food on Sticks 

description: Food on Sticks: Easy period recipes for foods
cooked on a skewer over fire. We will cook cheese and bread,
grilled mushrooms, meatballs, roasted apples and play that
“absurd game of cooks”, Eggs on a Spit. Students get to eat what
they make. Please inform the teacher of any food allergies or

What students should
  We will be cooking over open flame,
so an apron, oven mitt or leather gloves will be handy;
long hair tied back or covered, avoid long trailing sleeves.
Bring a chair, a plate and a beverage or a cup for water. Minors
must be accompanied by an adult.

Cooking over a fire

Class description: 
Cooking over a fire: Come prepare some easy medieval recipes cooked
over a fire in period pottery. We will also learn a simple and
quick bread recipe cooked in a Dutch oven. While the Dutch ovens we
use today are not totally period, we can use them to imitate a
period method of cooking and baking bread over a fire.

What students should
  We will be cooking over open flame,
so an apron, oven mitt or leather gloves will be handy;
long hair tied back or covered, avoid long trailing sleeves.
Bring a chair, a plate and a beverage or a cup for water. Minors
must be accompanied by an adult.


Presented by Lady Sabina di Zorzi

This will be a basic ‘knitting in the round’ class to get
you started on any number of period items, from basic bags to hats
and socks. There we will have some information on period
knitting available and some yarn (non-period) for those that need
it, as well as home-made wooden needles in case you don’t have your
own to use during the class. You are welcome to purchase them for
$2 if you would like to keep them.  If you have advanced
knitting questions, feel free to ask those as well! 

Spoon Carving

Presented by HL Thorbjorn Inn

He will be teaching his spoon
carving class to students at his merchant booth! He can teach
one or two students at a time, so bring your leather gloves and
good hand strength, $2 for the spoon blank and the written
materials, and stop by his booth to sign up for a time slot. He
will provide the carving tools for you to use during your session.
He has taught this as an Ithra class, so if you would like to get
credit for it, speak to the local Ithra Chancellor, HL Elewys of
Finchingefeld at ten.rellehtso@nerak.


11am Sunday – Presented by Marguerite

Marguerite fitz William has graciously agreed to host a
Persona Development Tea!  This will be a casual class
/ conversation to help those that are trying to figure out how
to develop their personas as well as “live it” while
enjoying an everyday nicety of tea.  Beginners welcome! 
Feel free to ask questions or just come to practice being in
persona!  Please bring your feast-cup to fill with your choice
of tea.

Bardic Arts

There is still plenty of time to get your performances ready and
your documentation written up for the Aquaterra Bardic
Championship. The championship contest will be held
on Saturday June 29.  The honor of a champion is great
and the required duties are small.
Those that wish to compete must send a letter or e-mail message to
the Baron and Baroness of Aquaterra and the current Bardic Champion
declaring their intent to compete for the position Aquaterra Bardic
The format of the competition will be:

Three performance pieces:

  • Two pieces must be fully documented to SCA period with a
    minimum of one primary reference.
  • The third piece should be at the very least SCA appropriate
    (this includes filk and original pieces) but does not need to be
  • One of the performance pieces should have some element of humor
    or comedy.

Competitors will be required to provide printed copies of their
documentation for each of the three judges.
If you don’t know where to send your email letter of intent to
compete or have any other questions contact the current Bardic
Champion (moc.liamg@notpmocfolegin). Email addresses for the
Baron and Baroness are gro.acs.ritna.arretauqa@norab
and gro.acs.ritna.arretauqa@ssenorab



Arts and
Sciences Championship

The main point of the discussion criteria for the submitted project
is for the creator to be able to discuss not only the total project
and use, but to be able to know what the lineage of a specific
material, knowing its original source, who produced or processed
the material, the value of the material and the difficulty in
acquiring that specific material for use in the presented

Each submission must have the following criteria.

Item(s) will be related, however creatively, to horses – per Her
Excellency’s whim. This can mean anything from actual horse
equipment, to a good yarn.

Objects cannot have been entered into an A&S competition
previously. Judging criteria on workmanship, artistry,
documentation, etc. will follow Kingdom A&S competition
standards- see this link for the Baronial judging forms: HERE

Discussion should include a brief mention of the details below:

A) How the object would have been used in period

B) Who would have owned the object

c) Object entered may be unfinished, if construction time is

D) Describe at least one item that inspired the project. It can be
something that is similar to your object, from a “cousin” culture
and time period (within a 100-year range).

E) What materials were used and how it was constructed

F) Where and when at least one of the construction materials would
have been found in period and what it would have “cost” to obtain
(rough estimate from your research)

Example> gold fittings may have cost as much as a horse or raw
wool may have cost a duck at the local market in the next town.

G) Would the materials used to create the object have been found in
your country and time period? If not, where would the materials
been found during your time period? What is the likelihood this
object really existed? Where and by whom would it have been

Letter of Intent to compete deadline is June 15th to allow time to
seek the judging panel.

Rapier Championship

Unfortunately, Aquaterra Duelist Champion, Lord Sebastian von
Aterdorff will not be able to attend the Champion’s Tourney this
year. He did create the outline for this year’s competition and HL
Vredric Utgar die Wild has graciously agreed to run it for Their
Excellencies. Utgar requested that I post this for all to see! This
will be one of many championship competitions at this year’s All
Champions held at the Masonic Family Park, June 28th through

If three or more Duelists are present to compete, let them all
practice and warm-up with a round robin or a period of pickup
matches. At a specified time, all are to assemble at the designated
place. Since by nature a duel is a one shot deal then this shall be
as well. Some manner of “drawing straws” will determine the first
to challenge another to a duel. The defeated is now a spectator. Of
the remaining, including the previous victor, straws are drawn
again and again there is a challenge and a duel. This continues
until there is but one left. ****

Each duel is a kill shot only match, no arming or legging. Each
duelist will bring to the duel their choice of equipment (dagger,
buckler, empty hand, etc). A double kill is exactly that and both
are out. Should this happen in the last duel so that no victor
remains, all duelists are revived and the process starts over.
Should one duelist remain after a double kill that had not yet been
challenged, then that duelist is the Champion because clearly all
others were afraid to challenge him.****

Should only two duelists arrive to compete, either a single duel as
described above or a best of 5 or 7.****

Baronial Youth
Armored Combat Championship

The All Champions Tourney is scheduled for the Sunday of the Boars
Hunt/ All Champions Weekend.  The qualifications for the
Baronial Championship are posted below this write up, so please
read this over carefully for there are some specific items that
might affect those youths currently in the YAC program. I bring
this up not to try and dissuade anybody from entering the tourney,
but to make sure they understand that this is different from a
normal tournament.

I will address one item in particular. Youths from all three
divisions are welcome to enter the tournament, however, the
Baronial Champion will be chosen from the Dragon Division only for
reasons of duty and responsibility.

For those who wish to enter, please inform
your intention after sending your letter of intent (email) to the
Baron or Baroness, (this is so I have a good idea of who will all
be attending).

If you have questions regarding the letter of intent, please let me

Please find below the specific requirements and format for the YAC

a) The entrants must attend morning court the day of the tournament
and be prepared to present themselves to their Excellencies along
with the other competitors when they are called forth for the

b) The entrants must present themselves to the YAC Warden following
court the day of the tournament to declare their intentions to
enter the competition.
c) The entrants must have a parent or guardian present at all times
during the competition.
d) The entrant must pass armor inspection and have a clear
understanding of the rules of combat as set forth in the An Tir
Book of Youth Armoured Combat.
e) It should be understood that youth champions, as opposed to
adult champions, may not be considered officers of the SCA and
shall have no corporate responsibilities.
f) The tournament will be fought in a round robin format. All
combatants will be allowed to fight each other at least once. At
the end, the two combatants with the highest ratio of wins to loses
will fight in a separate “finals tournament” the format being the
best two out of three.
g) The “Finals Tournament” will be a best out of three
separate bouts. In the past, theses competitions have each
featuring a different set of weapons; Sword & Shield, Great
Swords & Glaves.  However, I will give the two finalists a
choice as to which weapons they would like to use in the Finals

Please Note: If used, the Great Weapons will be supplied to the
combatants but it is expected they will bring their own sword &
