  • Fall Baronial Update – 7 May

    Greetings unto the Barony of Bryn Gwald!

    I am excited and honored to have been chosen by the Barony to fill the role of Event Steward for our upcoming Fall Baronial event. I recognize that we 5 months away from the event, and much could change in Austin, the surrounding cities, and the society between now and then that could impact this event. I intend to keep that close in mind as I continue forward, and I hope that this will be a fun and rewarding process regardless of what the final product will be!

    My goal is to create an environment where we can learn, create, and play in the Dream that is the SCA!

    I started the bare bones for the event website. Check it out if you’d like 🙂 I’m planning to keep pretty much all of the event resources accessible from that page. As much for my own sanity as I figure it’ll be useful for people to see what’s what. Gonna make a “contact the event steward” form soon so that it’ll be easy for people to contact me.

    Next things I’m working on will be updating/fleshing out the theme ideas I’ve had so far and making those accessible to everyone. After that will be reaching out to champions and officers/guild leaders, and then hopefully scheduling a brainstorming session for the barony.

    My goal is that by the end of May we will have a pretty good handle on what in-person competitions we want to plan for, what virtual alternatives we want to aim for, and a solid idea (or at least starting ideas) for how we want to incorporate the theme into our event.

    Respectfully,
    Lady kolfinna inn kyrra Otarsdottir
    Event Steward for Fall Baronial 2020

  • Missing the SCA?

    I don’t know about all of you, but I have been missing seeing my SCA family at guild meetings, fighter practice, and events. If you are like me I encourage you to check out this video from our neighboring Kingdom of Glenn Abhann.

    I hope to see everyone soon at one of our virtual events soon or in person once it is safe!

    Yours in service,
    Orazio d’Assisi
