Our Chatelaine’s Call to Action

Hey everyone!

This is Catelin, your local newcomer’s officer. I wanted to announce that with the help of our populace our official TikTok account has reached over 1000 followers! I want to thank everyone that has participated in making this number happen.

I want to keep reaching out to the public using TikTok as one of our platforms, but I am in need of help! Specifically I am in need of people who are comfortable being in front of a camera and showcasing what we do best: being part of the SCA through short form video clips.

If you are interested in being part of the filming process, or would like to send ideas/scripts/feedback for our TikTok feed, please send an email! I can be reached by email at chatelaine@ostgardr.eastkingdom.org.

One of my goals as part of the outreach committee is to show just how welcoming, diverse, and colorful we are as a chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism. One of the ways we can do that is by showcasing as many members of the populace as we can.

If you’re interested, please send me an email and I am happy to walk through with you on every step of the video creation process and show off the most Medieval-y version of you!

Yours in Service,

Catelin Straquhin
Ostgardr Chatelaine (Newcomer’s Officer)

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).
