What’s Happening

Greetings All,

An update on what’s going on in and around the Barony:

Sunday morning archery at Tuggeranong Archery Club, starts at 10am each week.  The first Sunday of each month we do the Inter-Kingdom Archery Competition, and is in garb.

Sunday afternoon at Ainslie Scouts Hall (corner of Ebden and Hassel streets) we do Heavy and Rapier training, plus assorted arts and sciences projects.  This is starting up again today (7th of Jan).

Tuesday evening heavy combat practice is also back on at Ainslie Scouts Hall.

Friday evening dance practice starts back up again on the 19th of January.  7:30pm at the 13th Canberra Scout Hall, corner of Hovea St and MacArthur Ave, O’Connor.

Andronicus O-Week Demo on the 7th of Feb, 10:00–15:00.  If you can help out, please let the Andronicus Seneschal (Alex) know.

Sweet Valentines this year is an afternoon picnic on the 17th February, 3pm-7pm, with refreshments, games and tourneys.

Border War is on again 23rd – 25th of Feb in nearby Bordescros.  It is lots of fun especially good for the rapier / archer and heavy crowd, plus there is feasting, classes and a bardic competition.

We will once again be having a Politarchopolis campsite at Rowany Festival, with me as the campsite coordinator.  All are welcome to join in this campsite, which will have the baronial pavilion as a communal space, and space enough for households and individuals. How to join the Polit campsite? Just make sure you put “Politarchopolis” as the campsite you are camping with when you book for Festival.

On the 10th of March, Adora are hosting a day of tournaments on the beach!

 

Phew!  So much going on… see you all there!

Andronicus Championship postponed…

Due to the inclement weather, today’s tourney event has been postponed.

Andronicus will advise a new date as soon as they liaise with the university – hoping to reschedule for next week instead.

TAFE this weekend

A merry band of us have only just returned from Spring War, where there was a surfeit of onions.  Now my attention turns to more cerebral pursuits, with Balmoral TAFE this weekend in Okewaite.  There are heaps of classes, so come along – I hope to see you all there.

Later on in October, on the 21st to be precise we will be having two demos on the same weekend – at the St John’s Fair and also at the Murrumbateman Field Days.  Please help out at one or the other or both of these is you possibly can.

Border War

Greetings All,

I shall be journeying to Bordescros for the 24th to 26th of February and call upon all who would aid me in stymieing the northward progress of Stormhold.  I hear that advance scouts of theirs have already been spotted in our lands since Thaw War last year, so we must take this fine opportunity to show them what for.

Thaw War: 2-4 September 2016

Greetings All,

This talk of war to the south concerns me greatly. Not only that our southern neighbors are flexing their muscles; not only the instability, distress and hardship that comes from war; not only that “Thaw War” sounds suspiciously like “Tharwa”, which is within our borders last I checked; but also that this event sounds like jolly good fun.

So I shall be journeying south to battle. Come join me!
