Saturday, April 28th on Antelope Island, The Barony of Loch Salann and the Barony of Gryphon's Lair will co-host a war practice to train His Majesty's army for the summer war season. We encourage all fencers and heavy fighters to come share their skills and experience to prepare the Baronys' Guard and populace for upcoming battles, such as Melee Madness, Barons' War, Uprising, and more.
Training will begin at 12, noon, and conclude around 5 pm with a pot luck dinner/ cookout. This is a family-friendly activity (not an event) and we look forward to sharing the friendship and camaraderie with one and all.
Training will include how to be a shield man, great sword/ pole arms man, spear man, and combat archer to learn unit manuevers, coordination, field commands, and more! For heavy fighters, field marshal and instructor will be CuDub mac Lorccain. We will use the Artemisia Army Manual for instruction. All participants are encouraged to read the document beforehand, if possible, to make training faster and easier on site.
For non-fighters, there will be activities such as tablet weaving, sponsored by HE Malkin and HE Fia, and other classes to be announced.
More details to be announced, as the date comes closer.
Please join us on antelope island to train His Majesty’s troops for War! Update: fee for the activity will be $3 per person at the rangers gate (tell them you are with the SCA) and donations to the Barony are welcomed.
Please bring day shades or pavilions as there are none on site. Bring a cooler for our lunch pot luck (no cooking easily available on site) and there is a Walmart just off site
