East Kingdom Masking Requirements – Effective August 9th

This is a reposting of the announcement as published on 8/6/2021 on the East Kingdom Gazette Website

Populace of the East,

We ask you all to join us in acting to protect the people of the East, to put the well-being of the people of the Society first. 

We have enjoyed the opportunity to begin to gather in person. Our first priority has always been the safety of the people of the East, and through safe practices, Our hope is to continue to have the opportunity to gather for events, meetings, and practices. 

With concern over rising COVID-19 rates, especially the Delta strain, We will be requiring masking at all official East Kingdom in-person gatherings of any size or type (practices, meetings, events). 

Effective August 9, all attendees over the age of 2, including vaccinated individuals, at indoor activities will be required to to be masked at all times. At outdoor activities masks will be required for all non-fighting activities. If an individual is not actively involved in combat at an outdoor venue, they are required to wear a mask. Masks may be lowered briefly when eating or drinking. The mask must be worn properly over the nose and mouth and be recognizable as an effective mask. 

Returning to wearing masks brings Us no joy, but safely must be Our primary focus. We want to keep the options and activities everyone has worked so hard to earn back. The ability to safely gather has been Our goal, and the cost of continuing to safely gather is mask requirements. 

We hope that this allows people to continue to participate in the SCA with a reduced risk to their health. We know it’s not easy, but now is the time to act with responsibility for the good of the East. Thank you for your cooperation and support.

Join the SCA Demonstration at Eternal Con! August 7th & 8th

The Crown Province of Østgarðr will host a public demonstration at Eternal Con on August 7-8, 2021 at Hofstra University in Nassau County in Long Island. Interested in the SCA? Attending Eternal Con? Come to the demo to find out more about us and to meet some of the members of the Crown Province.

Interested in Being an SCA Demonstrator/Participant?

SCA members and participants from Østgarðr and the surrounding area are welcome and encouraged to come demonstrate their skills and arts for the public.

The demo organizer is Østgarðr’s knight marshal, Lord Ervald LaCoudre Edwardson the Optimistic. If you are interested in being a demonstrator on either or both days of the demo, please reach out to him via email at

Demonstrators may arrive as early as 8:30 AM to help set up. The SCA outdoor demo will be in sight of the entrance cue for the convention, so we want to be ready early. We can entertain and promote to that line. Details about passes, parking, etc. are being resolved this week.

Lord Ervald will be there both days as a heavy-list fight marshal and will run a fighter practice on both days. The outdoor fighting field will be shared with The Brooklyn Black Company (one of the independent steel fighting teams in NYC).
