Barony of Stierbach Baronial Birthday
June 24 2017 (8:30 AM - 9:00 PM )
Barony of Stierbach
The Vikings are coming! German mercenaries are coming! No Vikings, no….no….you choose! Come welcome the new Baron and Baroness of Stierbach in a fun filled day and show off you love of either the Viking Culture, the German Landknechte Culture, or both! Awards given in all disciplines for the “winning” group and a special prize will be awarded by a secret judge for the participant showing off their chosen culture the best. After spending the day welcoming the new Baron and Baroness and playing, a feast will be given in honor of the new Baron and Baroness and the attending Royalty. Seating will be limited so preregistration is encouraged.
Martial Activities: Armored, rapier, and archery events planned.
Arts & Sciences Activities: This Baronial Investiture is a grand time to show off your Arts and Sciences! We will be having competitions, displays, and hopefully classes! Bring your bling to show it off! Teach others to make fantastic crafts! Come and learn how do do things!
This year we will be having 2 display opportunities!
1. Static Display - Bring whatever you're working on, let us see your art, your science! (Documentation encouraged, but not required.)
2. Peer Review - More information coming!
1. Dirty Dozen Largesse - Make 12 of anything that can be given as largesse by either the Baron and Baron or the King and Queen. This one is anonymous, so if you make documentation, please remember no names. Winner will get 1 of each item and possibly a little something extra.....
2. Scroll Blank Competition - The Scrivener Royal would love some blanks! Please remember to leave a 1/2" - 1" border the whole way around your illumination and to document if there are any toxic materials used. Documentation with pictures of the exemplar are highly encouraged. Winner will get a prize and the Scrivener Royal will get blanks! Win - win!
3. German Landsknect Competition - More information to come!
We are hoping to offer at least 2 - 4 classes at the event, each lasting about an hour! If you would like to volunteer to teach a class, please contact me at email@example.com with your modern name, SCA name, name of your class, blurb about what you're teaching, if there is a class size limit/kit cost/needed materials to bring with for it.
