Subject:Tabards Ahoy!

Hi peoples!

This is just a reminder that there will be a tabard making day THIS SUNDAY, held
at Cienwyn and Derfel's place, starting at 10am. Their address is 183 Denison
St, Hamilton.

Essentially all we want to achieve is the creation of 15 very simple, red and
green tabards. These are for whoever wants one and wants to sport the colours of
our Barony.

All hands, any machines, tables, chairs would be greatly appreciated.

Even if you cannot sew, there are other ways to help out.

I'd love to see as many of you guys show up as possible.

Subject:Tabard Day!

Hi Guys,

On Feburary 20th (A sunday), we will be making a new set of lovely red and green tabards.

We hope to be able to make 10-15 simple rectangular tabards in the baronial colours.

Who are they for? Anyone.
You need a tabard, take one.
You need a tabard for the next war? Take one.
And besides, it would be nice to throw one on a newbie, just to let them know they belong.

So, The start time is 10am at Cienwyn (sp?)and Derfel's place, 183 Denison Street, Hamilton south. Could you please bring any sewing gear, you may have... will be needed. Including machines and any spare trellace tables.

This is the weekend before Newcommer's feast.

Anyhow, BYO stuff and all help is appreciated.

Any questions, call me on 0402 246 876.

PS: Could I get a show of hands?

Mood: content

In a little more than a week, I will be turning 28. (you heard)

As with last year, I will be celebrating at the Hellfire Club, on Friday the 16th.

I would be happy to be surrounded by friends, though it may be a little bit of an ask for some (OK, most) to attend such establishment.

Anyhow, I will be there.

If curious, check out Hellfire Sydney

Anyone know of any accomodation going at the moment?

I'm toying with the idea of making a move.

A&S Day

Wouldn’t it be nice to have your own registered device?

Wouldn’t it be nice to say, "See that banner? That’s MY banner with MY device on it!"

Greetings to all!

Coming up on the 21st of March, in the morning before the Newcomers Tourney, will be held our first A&S open day for all to attend! This first A&S Day will be based on Heraldry - not just plain old ‘how to’ heraldry either! This day will incorporate information & activities on book & voice heraldry. You will come out knowing how to call a tourney & will get to have a go at the Newcomers event - if you ask nicely - hints on name pronunciation as well as the book side of things. You will be shown tips on designing your own SCA legal heraldry & be given all the forms you could possibly need to submit your device!

The event will start at 11:30 am & will run until 2pm when the tourney starts!

You will need to bring:-

A pencil

An eraser

A gold coin donation to help cover the tea / coffee / biccys!

So come along & learn something you may not have known about heraldry, & get set up to a point where you can leap into the wonderful world of submittals of heraldry!

Yours in service,


Chivalry is not dead.
