The Fortieth Year

March Madness -- Eskalya

March 18, 2006 (AS XL)

St. Mary's Episcopal Church,
Anchorage, AK

From The Page (March, 2006):

Celebrate the safe passage through winter with the sounds of merriment, the clash of swords, rapier blades flashing in the sun and more silliness than anyone can possibly stand as we fight against boredom and mundanity. Shed your prim and proper exteriors for a brief time and let your wild side run with abandon.

Join Their Excellencies, Bjarni and Annora, as they open the tourney season with the quest for a heavy champion. There will also be a rapier tourney; combat dancing/ barroom bransle and a few surprises. Other activities/contests include: Ladies Refinement and Breeding Obstacle Course part II - where one is not judged on speed (a lady is never fast) but on deportment; Death by Dancing; Quick the Bard (combat musical chairs); Come dressed as a visual pun or 'Come as You Never Were' and enter the garb contest. More 'traditional' contests - best decolletage and best buns. Baronial A&S - Period dish to be judged before feast, with documentation.

Feast will be potluck by first letter of your SCA last name: A-E, desserts; F-J, vegetables; K-N, meat dishes; O-T, starches (potatoes, rice, pasta); U-Z, breads, spreads and cheeses.

Site Information: We will be at the St. Mary's Episcopal Church, on the corner of Lake Otis and Tudor in Anchorage. Site opens at 11:30 am and closes at 10 pm. Site fee is $10 for members, $13 for non-members, $4 for children ages 4-12, and free for children 3 and under.
