Midsummer Novice Picnic
July 9, 2016
Barony of Hawkwood
As the SCA enters its 51st year, the Barony of Hawkwood invites you to travel to its scenic western mountains, and take a step back in time. Evoking the simple backyard bbq that started the SCA, the Incipient Canton of Stormwall is pleased to offer you their Midsummer Novice Picnic! There will be plenty of activities throughout the day for the newcomer to veteran. Marshal activities will include armored, rapier, youth, and thrown weapons. A&S competitions and classes will be ongoing, and an Artisan’s Row to display all talents (please contact the autocrat if you wish to teach or display). While there is no feast planned, we will have a potluck picnic. (see below for more info). Please come help show off all that the SCA has to offer and relax among friends while we share our Dream. Visit our web page and Facebook event for more information.
