This summer’s Summer Twilight Tourney Series is centered around important Saints, and what better Saint to select for a mid-December event… St Nicholas!
This event, the first of the four 2017-2018 STTS events will be taking place in the Hamlet of Grœnahólar (West Gippsland), where we are honoured to host this event on the estate of the Hamlet Elder, Thorgrim.
This glorious afternoon will include an archery competition, an A&S competition, Krae Kringle, and a potluck dinner. Details of the specific activities can be found further down the page. This event will be fairly informal as it will also double as a bit of an xmas/yule 2017 breakup. So come along, relax with some mates, shoot at some much loved xmas themed… things… eat some delicious food, give and get a present, and most of all have fun!
For the potluck dinner, please bring along a dish to share.
|Date:||Saturday, 16 December 2017|
|Venue:||Thorgrim’s Tavern, Wonthaggi VIC|
|Steward:||Lady Philippa Wildefuhel|
Prices – Members
15YO and older – $5
14YO and under – free
Non-members of any age also pay an additional $5 insurance levy.
Archery Competition (4pm start): A novelty shoot based on the 12 days of Christmas. Highest score wins a ‘special’ surprise from a surprise guest. The competition will include the use of sharps and blunts, so bring along both if you have them!
Heavy Tourney (5pm start): exact tourney format TBC on the day, so bring your armour. You ‘may’ even get to beat up Santa???!!!
Combat Archery Authorisation: For those interested in entering the combat field as an archer for events like war and shared field events – this is a great way to see what happens right up close. I can highly recommend it!
A&S Comp: All things Gingerbread – there will be a prize for the most delicious gingerbread based on a medieval recipe (documentation required) as well as a second prize for the best design (modern recipes accepted).
Krae Kringle: a play on the words of Kris Kringle, the Krae Glas version of this common gift giving game is;
> Gift giving/receiving is anonymous – gifts are chosen by participants via a name draw
> Anyone who wants to play needs to bring along an SCA item they own (that is in good condition but not used anymore). This can be something purchased, made, or even a promissory.
> Disguise the item and place it on the designated table (amongst the others)
> Enter your name into the jar of wonder and come and select your prize when your name is called.
Join Krae Glas as we camp and feast over the Easter school holidays.
