Greetings unto the Known World and those going to Pennsic from Duchess Mary of Northshield!

If you were ‘going to catch them all’ at Pennsic, what would you catch?  We have the most exotic creatures all around us, we just have to look.  This year I am sponsoring a quest for young and old to ‘catch’ – SCA style.

The goal is simple – seek and find people from every stage of progression from every kingdom.  I have a form to help you keep track and if you bring that form back to the Games Tent by 8/11 you will get a prize for your efforts. Whoever caught the most/’them all’ gets a special prize.

Truly, the real prize will be the people you meet and the things you learn!

Forms can be obtained at the Games Tent, or you can print the PDF: Pennsiccatchthemall

And since we are an increasingly digital society if you feel inclined, and, it is not offensive to your ‘catch’ please post pictures with #Pennsiccatchthemall

Duchess Mary of Carrigart, Kingdom of Northshield

 

From Their Royal Highnesses Logan and Ylva

At Grand Court at Lilies War XXX, Their Royal Highnesses Logan and Ylva announced who the Calontir forces would be fighting with at this year’s Pennsic War. While it is traditional that Calontir fights with the Midrealm, it is not uncommon that they align with the East upon occasion. However, this year Calontir does not choose either side. Instead, Calontir will fight beside Their Royal Iren Ferean Majesties of Ealdormere Nigel and Adrielle. Where Ealdomere goes, so goes Calontir.

Long Live Ealdomere!
Long Live Calontir!

Society’s Guidance for Youth Combat at Pennsic

 

The Society Seneschal, A.J. Pongratz, has provided legal guidance for Youth Combat activities at Pennsic in light of recent changes in Pennsylvania law. The full text is quite long, and is posted in full at The East Kingdom Gazette  http://eastkingdomgazette.org/2015/07/01/societys-guidelines-for-youth-combat-at-pennsic-and-changes-to-pa-laws/

However, the pertinent part of the statement is:

In reviewing the official website of the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Human Services and the recent statute with other officers and agents of the SCA, I have determined that this statute will not impact on Heavy Combat or Rapier Combat by minor children of the age of 16 or 17 nor youth activities.
