Norana will be hosting an Arts and Sciences brunch on Saturday, January 9th, 2016 starting at 11am. Bagels, cream cheese, and coffee will be provided but please feel free to bring a dish to contribute to the brunch.
We will be making some items that we need for our BaconBridge event on February 6th.
Please bring your empty tissue boxes (of this type, neatly flattened is okay) and clean small jars to donate to the BaconBridge event.
Below is the list of items that we will be making:
The address is 273 Argyle Road, 1st floor, Brooklyn, NY 11218. Near the Q train to Cortelyou Road station. There is a dog and a cat in residence.
Norana has put together a very detailed proposal and budget for BaconBridge. 🙂
The big thing: we cannot charge a door fee at the proposed site (Joyce’s building), we will have the raffle and a donations bucket set up to cover the event costs. and yes we have to have a list of all potential attendees before hand, same as previous years.
While we looked into renting Friend’s field the paperwork with the city will take at least 30 days and then there is not guarantee we get the site.
I am leaning towards going ahead with the proposed plan. With a good and well advertised raffle we should have to trouble covering our costs.
I’d like to hear back from the canton members with any comments and suggestions as soon as possible.
I’d like to get the even announcement up on EK site by end of the month at the latest.
thank you everyone in advance for your input and suggestions.
We are planning an event for early February 2016 called BaconBridge. It will be a celebration of all things bacon. We are holding a phone conference planning meeting over GoToMeeting on Tuesday, October 20th at 8pm EST. There is limited space available for people so you MUST sign up for it. Once you sign up, you will receive the instructions for accessing the GoToMeeting conference.
To sign up for the meeting, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your mundane name, SCA name, and a phone number (for just-in-case purposes). You should receive instructions including the meeting ID# and further instructions within a week of signing up.
Save the dates.

Take the A train to 190th Street and exit the station by elevator. Walk north along Margaret Corbin Drive for approximately ten minutes or transfer to the M4 bus and ride north one stop. If you are coming from the Museum’s Main Building, you may also take the M4 bus directly from Madison Avenue/83rd Street to the last stop.
Take Henry Hudson Parkway northbound to the first exit after George Washington Bridge (Fort Tryon Park—The Cloisters). This exit is only accessible from the northbound lane; if coming from the north, take Henry Hudson Parkway southbound to exit 14–15, make a U-turn, and travel north one mile to the exit marked Fort Tryon Park—The Cloisters.
Please rsvp so we have an approximate headcount.
Greetings from Wilhelm and from Oliver to all who see this message!
We are in the final rounds of preparation for this year`s Feast of John Barleycorn and it looks to be grand.
This year`s theme is (as the event title indicates) all things of a warrior nature. We will have many opportunities for Armor and rattan starting with a Friday night torchlight tourney through several Saturdayevents highlighted by Sir Edwards Unbelted Challenge. We have some really fun fencing tournaments, thrown weapons (with the addition of distance throws with javelins) and of course archery. There will be children’s heavy combat (details still being confirmed but we may also have Friday night for them as well!)
We will be having all of the traditional A&S with some new or recently added items. There will be dance and a brewing contest. We are continuing the recently added A&S display and calligraphy class and are adding a gaming area for period games. (A party without games of chance? Never again!)
There will also be much for the youths to do…
And garbing options for newcomers…
And amazing food…
(*Taking chance to breathe.) The event links follow…
The East Kingdom link…
and the local site with much more detail… (all of the above is or will soon be described online.
There is still more to be added to the local website so feel free to ask us if you have questions or look back at the site in the next days as we add more. The feast is only about 1/3 sold but it goes fast once we start getting over the pennsic hangover so don`t miss your spot!
The Ducks of the Barony of An Dubhaigeann have really enjoyed travelling.
Last year we went to the Far Off Lands of Russia to sample their lifestyle & culture.
Where shall we go this year?!
We are excited to announce this year’s annual Spring Schola and Feast, inspired by a visit to the Sorbonne in the 13th Century.
Learn to cook the “local” cuisine, take classes in various artistic and scientific endeavors.
Our Friendly Neighbors in Lions End had their Schola just four short weeks prior, and many of their classes were PART I.
Come on out to the Ducky Domain for the PART II’s
Class listing below.
There are a few spaces available to hold MORE CLASSES.
Anyone wishing to teach a class please contact the Autocrat below.
