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.

Information about the convention can be found at https://eternalcon.com/

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 knightmarshal@ostgardr.eastkingdom.org.

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).

Come to the McCarren Park Fighting, Fencing and Dance Practice – every Tuesday

The weekly Østgarðr heavy Weapons Fighting, Fencing and Dance practice happens every Tuesday starting at 7 p.m. (weather permitting) in Brooklyn’s McCarren Park (in the Williamsburg neighborhood). Newcomers and spectators are welcome!

In addition to armored combat and fencing practitioners, artisans and musicians are welcome to join us for a relaxing evening in the park doing medieval stuff with medieval friends.

Where: McCarren Park – 776 Lorimer St, Brooklyn, NY 11222, near the baseball diamonds

When: Every Tuesday night from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Detailed Directions and maps can be found here.

Come to the Ethereal Feast of the Fireflies — August 14

Greetings to the populace of Østgarðr!

The Canton of Brokenbridge is inviting you all to our Ethereal Feast of the Fireflies.

As we stand in the dusk of the pandemic, we long for the Pennsic Potluck, that magical night at camp where we get together, bring food, and make merry with our chosen time-traveling family. While a paltry replacement, Brokenbridge wants to make an attempt to recreate that night to hold us out for our final year of solitude. This includes tent backdrops, candle light, party games, and a box of goodies delivered to your door!

WHEN: August 14th starting at 6:00 pm Eastern Time.

WHERE: Online via Zoom. Pre-register to receive the link.

REGISTRATION: https://forms.gle/vDtwXHoHxsku3dhr7
• With kit: Cost is $10. Maximum of 24 kits, first-come first-served. Must register by August 6th.
• Without kit: free.

KIT: The package will include a backdrop-making kit, swag, a printed games booklet, and a recipe booklet. If you are opting in for a kit, you MUST pre-register by August 6th.

Going kit-less? Choose an appropriate Zoom virtual background, or create your own Pennsic-themed setting!

POT LUCK: Since we can’t physically bring our own food to the potluck, we’ll be bringing recipes! We will be collecting people’s favorites and you can download your copy soon! If you have a recipe you want to share, please reach out to me or Randve L’il Hammar.

Feel free to prepare something! But bring your food – we shall be feasting together so that we can be asked questions just as we’re putting food in our mouths!

Drinking is encouraged! So don’t forget a bottle of your favorite!

Best,

— Ragnarr Bliskegg
— Seneshal of Brokenbridge
