Baronial Inspection A.S. LV - Part One: We went to the north and inspected the Barony to see how it fares during these isolated times. Our lands are vast and contain many awesome people. (Well, we believe they are there because we listened and stayed away)

03/17/2020

The Seneschal and the Baron and Baroness believe it is in the best interest of all the Baronial citizens to cancel this month's meeting.

03/13/2020

The Baron and Baroness would like all our citizens to stay safe during this time of crisis. Though war was on the horizon, it has passed and been replaced with plague. The Castle remains strong, but we suggest that the bridge remain up and everyone wash their hands and remain vigilant. Heed the official heralds and town criers. With each other's help, Marcaster will endure.

11/13/2019

Lots of space for pavilions and banners when the Caravan To War comes by.

Bring your day shade and enjoy the fighting!

11/12/2019

Don't forget 11/17 on Sunday we are hosting the travelling practice.

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne?

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my jo,
for auld lang syne,
we'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
And surely ye'll be your pint-stoup!
and surely I'll be mine!
And we'll tak' a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS
We twa hae run about the braes,
and pou'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd mony a weary fit,
sin' auld lang syne.

CHORUS
We twa hae paidl'd in the burn,
frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
sin' auld lang syne.

CHORUS
And there's a hand, my trusty fiere!
and gie's a hand o' thine!
And we'll tak' a right gude-willie waught,
for auld lang syne.
-- "Songs from Robert Burns 1759–1796"

"The earliest germ of the song "Auld Lang Syne" is found in an anonymous poem of the 15th century, which George Bannatyne inserted in 1568 into his well-known manuscript of Scottish poetry,"

How to host a medieval Christmas

Baron Tristrum and Baroness Eadaoin would like to wish everybody a very Merry Christmas. May the lights on your castle hearth always be bright.

Christmas is today associated with merriment, gift giving and indulgence. But how was the festive season celebrated in the Middle Ages? What food was eaten? What traditions were upheld? Here, Dr Matthew Champion brings you the facts about medieval Christmases...

Good morning everyone !!!
Res/TRU was awesome. I hope everyone else had a wonderful time. I want to thank everyone who help pull together the event, help set everything up and clean up afterward. Many hands do make light work. What a wonderful "last event" for Antonitus and myself as Baron and Baroness of Marcaster. Spending time with old friends and making a few new ones :-) I like the renovations to the church !!!! The new Kitchen was wonderful and having nice sized classrooms was exciting. The atrium is lovely and had a good amount of space for court. We managed a "trifecta" of surprises in court, gave our first Starfish award (sssshhh) as a Barony and had a fantastic, low stress day. Oh yeah... we had a polling, must not forget that. The ballots are counted and the new Baron(ess) and Baron(ess) shall be announced at Fall Coronation. We hope everyone is as excited as we are to see who that will be. Thank you to everyone who gave us good commentary and advice. It will be shared with their Highnesses upon their return from War. Thank you Mistress Finnguala inghean Alusdair for coming down and making our Polling a success.

Greetings! I am excited that the Barony of Marcaster will have a new Champion this year! As the current Champion and in consultation with their excellencies, the Baron and Baroness of Marcaster, a challenge is now put forth for the title: As no in person events are allowed and we desire to increase the Barony and Kingdom’s martial prowess the Champion of Marcaster will be chosen through the judgement of submissions of pell training videos. The best pell training video(s) will be judged by last year's Champion in consultation with three Marcaster knights chosen by the Baron and Baroness of Marcaster. This endeavor is additionally supported by their gracious Royal Majesties. For information about the contest rules and scoring please see the links below!

Greetings! Finding way too much time on my hands, I have been sorting garb. I have a lot of Harem pants and scarves to share. If anyone is interested in some, then please let me know. ...or... I can donate them to Gold Key. I have all colors with draw string waists. I wait for your directions. In delighted service Ealdgyth
We did not get a chance to join in anything with Marcaster this past year as was our plan since being moved to Palmetto and now we are being transferred to a new property over in Winter Springs at the end of the month. Just wanted to let anyone in this group know that our company is looking for a property management team where one person will run the office (take payment, pay bills, keep things running smoothly) and one person would be the maintenance manager (supervise a small part time staff, hands-on minor electrical, plumbing, yard clean up, building picnic tables, and overseeing capital expenditure programs. If you are a team with at least two years experience, please message me. The job includes housing in a two bedroom manufactured home that has been recently painted, has a new whirlpool bath tub, and is steps away from work. Full health care plan. GREAT company to work for. PM me if you are interested in applying. They are collecting resumes now and want to hire within the next week to 10 days so there is time for us to help train. Move into the house would be at the beginning of June after we've moved out.
A cool video to check out - kind of an SCA news show!

Bring a guest ... all are welcome we play and work on pet projects until 2:00 PM. Pack a lunch and there is plenty of room to spread out. Lady Tatiana and my Husband (David aka Dreki Ironside) will be at the club to receive you. The physical address is 13063 County Line Road, Spring Hill, FL 34609.
Greetings all, my wife and i will be moving to the Tampa area (from the Midrealm) in the next month or so. I was wondering if anybody had suggestions for good school systems. We have a 17, 12, and a 6 year old, so we cover a broad spectrum. Thank you in advance! Shimazu Mitsunaga
Due to some miscommunication, this trim will be centrally purchased by the Barony. They will handle distribution and set their price. I will go through the original post to modify things to reflect this change. Unto the noble residents of the Barony of Three Rivers, from Master Andrixos Seljukroctonis, Proprietor and Prandioprates of Calontir Trim, Greetings, I am pleased to offer custom trim for the Barony. The trim is 1.5 inches wide, and has about a six inch repeat from center of design to center of design, so that it can be folded to go around a curved hem without impinging upon the design. It is comparable in look and feel to my other SCA trims. Mistress Octavia Columella has a sample of the trim for you to examine. I would hope that the trim would be ready in time for delivery at Coronation, but to be honest, it might take somewhat longer than that. Scheduling is always a guessing game, but the mill has been fairly quick lately. Please let me know if you have any questions. All the cool Baronies are doing it. Andrixos (Please not that in the picture, there appears to be a flaw in the weaving. The swatch had been folded, and I did not have means to iron it out before sending off the picture. Penny for scale.)
