A Taste of the Middle Ages — Sat 26 Sep 2015 — Mittagong

Have you ever wanted to be a knight? Or a seamstress?  How about a brewer?

This event is for people interested in trying out the SCA.  There will be an excellent medieval feast, as well as displays of medieval crafts and various aspects of our medievalist life.

Misrule ! Sat 9 May 2015, St Saviours Cathedral Hall, Goulburn

In medieval villages there was often an annual festival where everything was turned upside down and the person who selected a cake with a bean in it became the Lord of the Manor for the day.

“Misrule” is such a feast for Okewaite.  The King and Queen, Barons and Baronesses are very welcome, but will be on the low table rather than the high one.  So this event is about fun rather than ceremony; we hope you will join us.

Sometimes nothing is as it appears...

Pot Luck and A&S — Sun 19 April 2015

This event is at John and Sharen’s house in Goulburn.  Please email for the address as it is a private residence.

From 3pm there will be Arts and Sciences activities.  Work on your own or group projects and have a good natter; sometimes there is a guest Laurel from another group.

Around 5.30 to 6pm we have a Pot Luck dinner.  This means everyone brings something to share — some bring actual medieval dishes, others bring a roast chicken, some cheese or a loaf of bread.

If you’re an SCA membership the event is free, and otherwise you have to buy an event membership for $5 which goes straight to the insurance company.  So much better to join the SCA for $30 online  and remember to list any children there (which is free).

These events finish about 8pm as many of us have work the next day.

A quick update

Most of the group’s online life is on Facebook right now, so here’s what else we’ve done in the last year.

In July 2014 we found ourselves with lots of leather and held a leatherworking workshop and pot luck.  Must do that again.

In August and December we held other pot lucks, all these at the Goulburn Club.

In February and March 2015 we held arts and sciences nights in conjunction with pot luck dinners, at John and Sharen’s glorious if somewhat crumbly mansion in Goulburn.

We all went to Rowany Festival at Easter, with a very large campsite and our own tavern, the Kraken’s Arms.

Somewhere in there the College of Heralds confirmed our group’s name (ie Okewaite) and heraldry: “Per saltire purpure and argent, in cross three acorns and a laurel wreath counterchanged.”  Note that the acorns all hang downwards, whereas they used to point to the middle.
