Spring has arrived, and the Drums of War begin to Beat. You want to go to Pennsic! Everyone you talk to makes it sound like so much fun…
…but you’ve never done anything like this, so… now what do you do?
Pennsic 101 will be at Hawkes Reache A&S Night this Friday May 27th, 7PM
Pennsic is a most wonderful SCA event and attending this class will help you to both prepare and have the best time possible… We will discuss how to prepare for Pennsic, what you will need to do and bring. We will answer questions you may have on how to manage to get your things to Pennsic and what you can expect when you finally get there and get set up. If you have garb you’ve already made and are not sure it’s Pennsic-ready, bring it. We can help you decide.
If you’re thinking about Pennsic but haven’t quite decided – come on out!
If you haven’t been to Pennsic in several years, or feel like you’re missing out on something because all you do there is (fill in the blank) feel free to join us!
If you took the class at 1066, and still have questions, or just want to hear some of it again, feel free to join us – since this is a question-driven class, it’s a bit different each time.
Please see the Hawkes Reache calendar for location and other info: http://hawkesreache.eastkingdom.org/wordpress/event/monthly-business-meeting-and-as-night-2-2/?instance_id=235
I look forward to seeing you there!
PLEASE NOTE – if you can not make it to the class, I will try to accommodate requests to hold it again. Please email or IM directly.

It seems that spring is finally here. If the weather holds, which it looks like it will, the next dance practice will be on Tues., May 17 from 6:30-9:00 PM at Belvedere Castle in Central Park.
Everyone is welcome to join us for practice; no prior dance experience required… Practices are held in street clothes, as many are traveling after work.
We’ll meet in the grassy area of Shakespeare’s garden if it is open. If you follow the “From the West Side” http://northpass.eastkingdom.org/DancePractice_CentralPark.html the grassy area is the “little clearing” before you reach the castle steps. We are typically near the bench on the left side. Once it gets dark OR if the grass isn’t open we move atop the castle. If you cannot find us, please phone (sometimes there is traffic, sometimes we are on the castle if the grass is soggy, etc.). If you will be arriving after 7:30 phoning is also advised (however, if we are mid-dance we may miss your call, please leave a message).
To find us atop the castle… If you are coming from the west side, once you climb the steps you can find us congregated by the wall slightly to the left of the little covered alcove in front of you. From the east side once you go up the steps at the back of the castle we’ll be to the left near the wall before the little covered alcove.
If it’s raining we meet under the overhang up top. If severe weather is in the forecast please check your email or call us on dance practice days; we’ll make a decision by 2 PM if we’re going to cancel practice.
Tuesdays weather permitting
For more info or questions, please email or phone.
