Night on the Town: Night of the Tartan
April 14- 16, 2017
Barony of Lochmere
The Clan of Smeewick churns with excitement as they proudly anticipate the return of their favorite Scot, Bruce, the Bruce. The commotion boils, barely contained. Our clan folk eager to hear the details of how that cold February day in Dumfries unfolded.
They knew Bruce still had his good name! Poor cousin Bob, not so much. Being good Scots and to raise Bruce’s spirits; the clan and her nobles have planned a day of celebration! Come and enjoy a challenging series of our own personal version of Scottish Games and a sumptuous feast. Join us in the Barony of Lochmere inside the gates of Smeewick to greet our clansman, Bruce.
Martial Activities: We will be four events to celebrate these, our Lochmere games!
Rapier activities: Snowball Melee (creates 2 teams) Capture the Sheep Scenario The Scottish Game for Record in the form of a Broadsword/Blacksword tourney (single elimination speed tourney) for the "games" Finally a woods battle with combat archery.
On the Archery field is the Scottish Knot Archery Dart Game
On the Thrown Weapons field is the Scottish Hammer throw
and finally, so everyone can participate, a Stone Put Hop Scotch (can't just throw it far, have to be accurate - no hopping required)
Prizes for the highest scores in each event.
Arts & Sciences Activities: Lochmere Signature Drink competition Her Excellency Lochmere will be sponsoring a competition for the Baronial Cocktail. The winning beverage will then be featured at Pennsic and Battle on the Bay, and the winner will receive a prize (TBD).
1) Taste – first and foremost.
2) The beverage must contain at least one main period ingredient. The more authentic, the better, but do not sacrifice taste for accuracy.
3) Bonus – catchy Lochmere themed name.
Additionally, there will be a Novice Competition in two parts. One competition for folks in the SCA less than one year open to any form of entry (Newcomer). The second would be for folks who have starts a new craft and have been doing it for less than a year (New to You). Show us what you have learned!
Last, but certainly not least, an open competition of any medium incorporating a celtic knot. This should allow for lots of creativity!
