Myrgan Wood August Summer Revel


Hosted by the Barony of Myrgan Wood (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), in the Kingdom of Avacal
*Please note: Event will only go ahead if permitted by provincial regulations in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic at the time.

A message from the Baron and Baroness of Myrgan Wood:

Welcome! These are the plans for the first official in-person event within the Kingdom of Avacal!

The provincial heath authorities and SCA Inc have determined that, if done carefully, the pandemic has eased enough that we can start to gather again.
This is both welcome news and nerve-wracking for people. The intent of the organizers is for this revel to be an easing into a new normal.
All activities are for fun. All participants are welcome and encouraged to engage in the manner that fits with each person’s comfort and boundaries.
Communication and chivalrous conduct are key to keeping everyone physically and emotionally healthy! Whether you wish to maintain distance or hug, mask or not, let’s set our boundaries and communicate.

Descriptions of the activities are outlined below with details and current announcements posted to the Facebook event here: https://fb.me/e/2wFEmuXaZ
Key points currently are:
- bring plenty of water, water bearing is not allowed at this time
- there is a complete fire ban in the municipality
- you are responsible to haul out your own garbage
- SCA requires contact tracing information. The easiest way to accommodate that is through pre-registration (see link below)

We look forward to seeing those of you who feel comfortable with attending this event. Hopefully it will be safe enough for us to see the rest of you soon!

Roxanne & Raoul,
Baroness & Baron of Myrgan Wood

Schedule

Tentative Schedule:


Activities

Heavy, Archery, Rapier and YAC:

None of the disciplines have a dedicated tournament at this event.
Each discipline will have time allotted on the schedule to shake the rust of and enjoy the camaraderie of participating in their fun together.
None of the activities will overlap so there will be plenty of opportunity for people to participate in as many of the activities as they like without having to choose which to play in.

A&S Show and Tell:

Welcome back to elementary school.
Everybody who made something during the plague can stand up and show off their thing to the assembled audience and tell us all about it.
It’s not a competition. It’s a chance to show you awesome thing and maybe field a question or two from the crowd.

Recreate a Medieval Painting:

Example: https://tinyurl.com/5ejyv9bs
The idea with this is to find a piece of medieval art that is interesting to you in some way.
Then get together props, friends, somebody's children, livestock (K, probably not livestock or we'll need another waiver, maybe tie a fleece on your dog or something) or whatever you need to re-create that image in real life.
An example is attached but this would also be a good time to reach out to some of your favourite scribes and ask them if they know of some amazing images from the past. Because a lot of them do.

There isn't a lot of rules around this so go hard. It's all in good fun and the possibilities are endless.
The idea will be to have an audience looking at the image that you're doing and then looking at your attempt at it.
I think this should be fantastic.

We're not sure how we're going to disseminate the images that you're trying to re-create to the audience yet, but we'll have that figured out by gameday.
If you could please email me your image in advance, that'd be great so that I can include it in our prep package for the audience. Either FB pm or just email it to me at dave.tarry@gmail.com

Karaoke BYOFeast:

On Saturday evening, we’re going to have a BYOFeast on the eric field.
Bring your own tables and chairs or a blanket to sit on.
Social distancing is completely possible and you’re welcome to go as far as marking out a space around you with stakes and ropes if you choose to do so.
Set up as singles or as groups as your comfort allows adhering to all public health guidelines which will be outlined at the time of the event.
Bring your own food. There is absolutely no potluck aspect to this.
During the meal, there is a Karaoke element to it.
So feel free to get up and perform in any way you wish.
We would love to add some musical atmosphere to the event and welcome your voices and instruments.
This is in no way a performance venue, it’s background ambiance.
Performances can be anything from playing a flute, to telling a story, to a personal soliloquy outlining your grocery list for next week.
There is no expectation that the performer will be any good.
All skill levels are welcome. It’s medieval style karaoke while we eat.
