From The Page (September, 2011):
As Fall speeds towards us, we meet again to find a new Captain for the Winter's Gate militia. In addition, we will be holding the first-ever rapier tourney for the Commander of the Cavaliers! Come join us for a wonderful weekend of fighting and food - there will also be flower tourneys for both heavy and rapier, followed by food for the body (a potluck dinner Saturday evening) and food for the mind (a class on Medicinal Herbs in Cooking and Their Use for Daily Ailments on Sunday)
A&S contest is "heraldic display in any mode". For the uninspired, that means banners, tabards, dresses, table settings, book covers, pouches, and more. Autocrat's whim is, of course, food. Bring a dish that will serve 8, using some of those odd new foods that the Spanish have been bringing in from that "New World" of theirs. Extra points for a period dish using these ingredients. Herbal class fee is $6.
Site Information: Moose Creek Pavilion at Pioneer Park/ corner of Airport Way and Peger Rd / Fairbanks, AK 99701. Site opens at 12pm and will close at 9pm. Event fee is $7 for members ($12 for non-members); ages 6-12 are $3, and children under 6 are free. Checks should be made out to "SCA Inc - Winter's Gate".
