To all the Good and Noble People of our Barony of Andelcrag do We, Antonia and Collette send
greetings. We hope this missive finds you well, snug and secure in your manors while waiting for spring
to arrive. Spring brings forth Our Baronial Althing and the choosing of Our Armored, Rapier, Archery,
and Arts & Sciences Champions at the Andelcrag Althing on April 15th, 2017.
To those wishing to offer service to the Barony as a Champion...
We would ask that those wishing to be Our A&S Champion please bring 3 entries from 3 of the
A&S Faire divisions with basic documentation. Information on the A&S divisions can be found at
http://www.midrealm.org/moas/criteria/contents.html . The projects/research should have been completed
in the last year. If possible, we would ask that one of the entries be something that supports the fighting
arts, i.e. a jupon, banners, arming coif, leather or metal work for armor, scrolls/scroll blanks for fighting
awards, arrows, a fencing cloak etc. We would also request that if Our A&S Champion is attending
Pennsic, that they try to either teach a class, have an item for display in the known world A&S display or
do a volunteer shift at A&S point or Pennsic University.
Armored, Rapier, and Archery combatants will be asked to fight/shoot against the current
champions and Baroness Collette as a part of the tournament. We ask that those vying for those
championships to also bring an A&S entry (with basic documentation) to display. The tourneys for
Armored and Rapier combat are being determined by Our current armored champion, Lord Thelvald and
Warder Aelfwine, who has graciously stepped in as the current champion has other duties that day. Lady
Jaqueline will be hosting the archery tournament.
We would encourage that those vying for the position of Champion to attend Pennsic, however, it
is not required. We would strongly encourage attendance at any future Baronial event while Champion
and coordinating with Us for attendance at events within the Middle Kingdom. If you are interested in
serving as a Baronial Champion for Armored combat, Rapier combat, or the Arts and Sciences, please
email or give us a short letter of intent by April 5th.
We are looking forward to holding Court at The Baronial Althing. We need your suggestions for
those whom you feel deserve awards. If you know someone whom you feel deserves an award, please
email Us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the person’s SCA name, modern name,
group, the award/s you think the person is deserving of and why you think they should have it. We look to
our populace to help us in finding people who are worthy of accolades.
The Barony will be supporting largesse projects in the very near future, please stay tuned for
Lastly... although it is early, there is talk of war late this summer. If you reside in the Barony you
are most welcome to camp with the Barony at Pennsic. The camp is listed as Barony of Andelcrag in the
Pennsic registry- if you would like to camp with us, you MUST register prior to June 17th, 2017, and you
MUST contact the Baronesses so that we know you are registered. This is to ensure two things: 1) That
the registration list accurately reflects all registered parties and 2) that the camping space given to
everyone as a result of registration is doled out appropriately in the Block. Please contact VIA EMAIL:
