Unto the Populace of One Thousand Eyes, greetings from Baroness Avelyn and Baron Alan!
Uprising was a success. The final tally was 300 people attending this fun event. As usual, we had a variety of weather, but the rains did not dampen the fun. The shopping, fighting, archery and thrown weapons activities were great. A HUGE thank you to all members of the Barony who worked so hard to make this memorable Uprising 31 happen!
July 14 will be our monthly Baronial gathering. As it was last year, the primary activity will be the Baronial Archery Championship. Bring your bows and arrows to shoot and have fun. We will likely have some loaner gear there as well. Tomas will be there with his thrown weapons for those who wish to try it out. Bring your projects to work on, your armor to fight if you wish. It will be a fun relaxing day. This will be held at Baron Alan’s manor, the Uprising site. We will start at 11:00 and finish up about 5:00 pm. Bring something for a Potluck lunch.
The first week of the Renn Faire, held near Ririe went well. We had a great display laid on, and had many interested people. Hopefully, we will get some new people to join us in SCA fun.
Please try to join us for Fighter Practice on Thursday nights. It is held at the Greenbelt, near the Roundabout. This is near the intersection of Memorial Drive and D Street. Please come in garb and bring projects to work on and enjoy each others company. This location has a very high visibility for passersby. This is a great opportunity to recruit new members.
Again, We wish to thank each and every one of you for making the Barony a great place to be!
