Heavy Fighting Course

We’re organising a visiting knight or senior squire to come to Goulburn for training.  Thinking of running an 8-week “Oplomachia” training course, which Cristoval and Redfox have done (and enjoyed!) in Canberra.  Let them know if you’re interested.

Possibly Saturday mornings from 2nd week in Oct, with extra training available Sunday pms in Canberra, and maybe Tuesday nights at Cockatrice Farm near Goulburn.

12th Night 2014

In January “Okewaite” were given the honour of hosting the Crowns 12th Night Feast. The decor changed a few weeks out from the event from Fantastical beasts to a Greek theme at the request of the incoming King, after a little panic, we changed a few of our plans including all of the artwork and menus and the back drops for the changeover Crown event.

We pulled it all together to host a fantastic event, a great big thanks to all the members of Okewaite who came together a fantastic event.

I will let the pictures do the talking

Campfire cooking — Sat 2 November

“On Ilkla Moor” is Okewaite’s signature event, where we go from (very) raw materials all the way to completed medieval dishes — and you get to help cook.

It’s great fun, and afterwards there’s plenty of mead and bullshit and song around the campfire.

In the afternoon, we’re inviting the Goulburn Bowmen and anyone else to come for a shoot, and there will be an archery competition with a prize.

During the day, we’re repairing and creating armour.  If you can drive an anvil, a sewing machine or a welder, or you can cut/rivet/strap/paint, you can help Okewaite become the fearsome fighting force it always deserved to be.
