The Thirteenth Year

First(?) Fighter Practice -- Winter's Gate
Fall, 1978 (AS XIII)

"This was really a combination of fighter practice and organizational meeting. Some folk had met at a fair during the summer, and word got out to some others of us after school started that an SCA group was forming in Fairbanks, Alaska. Various officer positions were assigned (I recall that Morgana n'ha Keridwen [now Morgana yr Oerfa] was the first Seneschal and Chronicler; I was the first Arts Officer; Micheil the Younger of An Alltan was the first Herald, and Phillippe du Moorgth was the first Marshal, but memory is a bit fuzzy ...). To the best of my knowledge this is the first fighter practice held in Winter's Gate, held on the University of Alaska, Fairbanks campus." -- Hirsch von Henford
