Queens Prize is a fun competition. The best way to get used to competing in SCA arts and sciences. Blunders may happen, but with care and consideration most can be overcome.
The rumors were out there and finally confirmed. Truly, the Barony of the Lonely Tower won't be having its 12th Night event next January. It took a lot for Lonely Tower to cancel its traditional annual event. But it can't be helped. It's very sad.
On August 24th the Barony of Mag Mor, Lonely Tower's nearest and dearest cousins, held their annual Cattle Raids event. It included so many activities. Camping, archery, arts & sciences competition, artisan show-and-tell and martial arts. I always see it as a photo op safari. I usually spend the day scoping out views to snap both on the field and indoors. This time was not different.

Well, this didn’t go well. I’m a delinquent blogger. So many pictures for your viewing, so little time during the holidays. Earlier this month I went to Calontir’s Kris Kinder Market event, again. It’s my favorite indoor event. Who doesn’t like to shop and visit with friends? Here are a few of the many photos I snapped while browsing the wares […]
The Calontir RUSH Book Arts Seminar is only three days away. I am now in a black hole of confusion. As Event Steward, I am in the uncomfortable spot in an event timeline that is often chaos. Have you ever been there? Pulling your hair out chaos. While I think I’ve organized everything into oblivion, the preparation steps are not quite complete. There is […]

2016 Queen’s Prize Tournament I’m bummed. Calontir’s Queen’s Prize Tournament is just around the corner, a month away, on September 15th. And I won’t be able to go. Queen’s Prize is Calontir’s Medieval arts and crafts treasure. An event you don’t want to miss even if you aren’t entering. A competition that’s inspiring for us all, whether you’re a mentor or searching […]
You may have noticed I’ve stepped up my local SCA participation. It’s difficult for me to get away from the Barony so I’ve decided to do more here, taking on more event and local jobs. Book Arts RUSH Flyer I coordinated crash space at Bardic Bedlam, Arts & Sciences competitions at Coronation, and now I’m the Barony’s Social Media Officer. But my bigger project […]
Calontir’s 2018 Summer Coronation is just around the corner. I truly hope you can come. It will be a grand time. Not only for the court’s pomp but because this one’s also a camping event. Camping coronations give you more time. More time to talk to friends, attend meetings, enjoy bardic presentations, eat the feast and take part in Arts & Sciences […]
My spare room being used for Lilies prep. Every year I go to Calontir Lilies War and this year is no different. What’s different is what I’ve realized from doing this annually. It is important you purge your hygiene and health products each year. When I started paying attention to dates on the personal products I took to Lilies my […]
What do you do when you feel blah? When you want to do something different or challenging? I go to a different SCA event. This time I went to Bardic Bedlam. Bardic Bedlam is a long day, bardic sharing event held each year. It is named after the book series with a similar name. Entertainers from all over the kingdom came to the Lonely Tower for this […]
Finally…Here’s my Calontir Kingdom Arts and Sciences event post for you. The Bardic Bedlam event slowed my writing. You’ll see my timing is later than my usual delay, but I wanted to do more than post photos. The Shire of Lost Moor hosted the event at a site we hadn’t seen before. It had space by the ton and a maze of smaller rooms. A […]
Bardic Bedlam is here, in the Barony of the Lonely Tower. It’s a bardic sharing event named after the book series with a similar name. This year I had a different job for it. My friend Lady Zafara Baabur asked me to be the crash-space coordinator, a new-to-me task. So I did my usual and winged it. Common On Site Sleeper […]
You won’t believe where I went last Saturday. I attended the Kingdom of Calontir Barony of Mag Mor event, Winter War Maneuvers. This is the ultimate winter practice for the SCA‘s coming Gulf War‘s event, “A War With No Enemies”. Gulf War is an annual war and week-long camping event hosted by the Kingdoms of Gleann Abhann and Meridies. It is all-out battles between the […]
12th Night, a way to jump start the new year. As always you’ll find diverse regaling activities. Here are your event photos showing them from gate to feast and in between. Early gate check-in. Morning court, showing Baroness Giulia Isabella de Venezia pictured to the right of Their Majesties in Lonely Tower’s chairs. Aleit de la Thomme and Augustin le […]
Although you are interested in history, don’t you still love photos? Especially photos of events? Through the year I spent days enjoying and photographing Calontir’s events. Its sights and adventures. These 2017 popular photo posts share those memories. M.

Shoppers’ Paradise It’s Kris Kinder time again. That wonderful Calontir shopping event put on by the Barony of Forgotten Sea. While it’s always jam-packed with merchants and their things for you to buy, there are also meetings for you to attend. This year Their Majesties Damien and Issabell also packed it with Laurel ceremonies. Four of them. Processing in to court. […]
I don’t often get to go to an SCA event two weekends in a row, but recently I did. The weekend after Calontir’s Crown Tournament I went to Vertigo. Vertigo is a yearly Shire of Lost Moor weekend camping event offering classes, many relating to fiber. It got its name because a person with vertigo has the symptoms of spinning and […]
