Back from Festival
The Rowany Festival, over Easter, is the biggest national event for the SCA. It was held at Glenworth Valley near Gosford.
We had a great time this year. The highlight was our Friday Night Feast, where we invited the Rowany Seneschal, the volunteer St John Ambulance people, and a stack of other guests to our campsite.
All of the food was cooked over the campfire: sizzling geese, luscious ducks, meatballs disguised (not so well) as golden apples, our own bread, several vegetable dishes, topped off with a 14th-century cheesecake (pronounced delicious) and a fig and raisin dessert. One visitor said that it was the best feast she’d had in her SCA career, not bad considering the vagaries of campfire cooking!
The goose and duck carcasses were loaded into our biggest cauldron, to make a wonderful soup for the next day — which we kept going for each subsequent day. It was delicious.
We’ve all come back with renewed enthusiasm, with lists of great projects and a commitment to getting some SCA combat happening in Goulburn. If anyone can give us a hand with these, please contact Lady Alys the Seneschal.
