Shire of Cold Keep

St. David’s Day
Cold Keep Heraldry

Shire of Cold Keep is hosting its St. David’s Day event on
March 11, 2006. As part of St. David’s Day celebrations, the
Welsh celebrate their culture. This event is, like the
holiday it is named after, a celebration of SCA culture, who
we are and what we do. (In other words, you neither need to
be Welsh nor need to know anything about St. David in order
to participate.) In this spirit, we are looking for
instructors interested in sharing their knowledge of the SCA
and medieval life. Heavy and rapier fighting, archery, and
arts and sciences are all welcome to attend and instruct.
Please contact the autocrat if you are interested in either
teaching or learning.
Prospere’ is travelling from distant lands to teach
Rapier classes have been allotted the
daytime hours, so the earlier it starts, the more time you
have to play.

  • A
    helm will be passed for donations to Don Prospere’s travel

fighting instruction
will be offered by Vladimir
Andreivich Aleksandrov, squire to Sir Geoffrey de Rennes. He
will also be teaching a course on chivalry.

A target
overview will be taught by Lord Markus
Pheilsmid. A very basic combat archery course will be
conducted as well.
The site
opens at 10am and closes at 11pm. Site fee is $5.

For Non-Members, the standard additional $4 will be charged.
Make cheques payable to the Shire of Cold Keep. Additional
nominal fees may be charged for classes.
