VIRTUAL Night on the Line (2021-05-22 - 2021-05-23) Lochmere
The ongoing plague means the town of Smeewick will have to wait one more year until the fae visit. Instead please join the Barony of Lochmere for a Night on the Line. Their Excellencies of Lochmere, Baron Linhart and Baroness Letia ask you to break bread with them as they hold court.
For those who wish to eat medievally, a feast menu, associated recipes, and video instruction will be provided by Lady Katla in advance of the event. Lady Marta will be sponsoring A&S competitions and displays.

The Barony of Lochmere is pleased to invite one and all to Night on the Line Virtual Bardic Circle. This will be hosted on Zoom Saturday night, April 22, 2021 from 8 pm - midnight. This will be an open bardic, but we do issue forth the following challenge to the bards of Atlantia:
The Spooky Story Challenge: Bring your words and music to elicit the creepy, the crawlies, the chills, the things that go bump in the Night on the Line!
The Silly Poem Challenge: Who will be crowned the Nightâ€™s most RIDICULOUSLY lyrical Atlantian? Bring us poems to summon laughter or groans. No pun too bad, no situation too improbable, no jest too jocular, we welcome them one and all!
We encourage bards to begin with any pieces suitable for the challenges. This will be pick/pass/play, and we ask that all minors (under 18) have an adult with them in the room
Her Excellency will be hosting a timed scavenger hunt throughout the day. Get ready to join the quest from your home; see who can find an item the fastest!
PERIOD FIRE MAKING COMPETITION
Fire may no longer be the everyday necessity it once was, but practicing period fire making methods is an immersive (and fun!) way to learn more about those whose lives depended on it. Show off your skills by racing to light a candle using period methods in a competition sponsored by the Kingdom of Atlantia Royal Forestry Guild.
After a show-and-tell by participants, the competition will start with a countdown, and all participants will try to light their candle the fastest! All parts of the fire making process should be performed in view of the camera, and while the first participant to light their candle will be the winner!
More information, such as how to sign-up and how the competition will work will be provided via the Night on the Line Facebook event page, the Barony of Lochmere website and the Merry Rose.
Childrenâ€™s Activity: Where can you find castles? When were they built? What are the parts of a castle? Instructions for children to build their own castles will be posted on the FB Event Page and the Lochmere website. Competition ages: 4-8, 9-12 and 12-17. Join Lady Katla to find out more and see the submissions from the children.
VIRTUAL SWORD YOGA
As the plague loosens its grip on Smeewick, hope is blossoming amongst the townsfolk. The rapier contingent is hosting a dispersed virtual gathering to focus on slow drilling, mobility, and flexibily in preparation for the future return to training. These exercises combine slow holding and breathing focus commonly seen in yoga with rapier centric positions. No equipment is needed and people of all experience and physically are welcome to join.
