By special request we will be hosting a beginners leatherworking workshop. If you would like to attend, please bring the following tools if you have them;
1. a small sponge, and bowl
2. a cutting board such as plastic, granite, or marble (NO WOOD)

I have a limited array of leather carving, stamping, and punching tools to share, so if you just happen to have any please bring them as well.
A small sample piece of Leather will be provided for you to learn with. If you want to actually make something like a belt, mask, etc, you will need to purchase “Tooling Leather” and bring it with you.

Tavern Game Night @ Newportville Inn
Mar 14 @ 7:00 pm

Join us for a night of Modern and Medieval Board, Card, and Dice Games. Bring a game of your own, or try one that someone else has brought. If games aren’t your thing, you are most welcome to join us to socialize and have a beer! We are often in a private room at the Newportville Inn, so please ask the host/ess to point you in the right direction! There is no cost for the gaming and socializing, but it is customary to order food & drink.

Fencing Practice @ Churchville Nature Center
Mar 14 @ 7:30 pm

Fencing Practice happens in the Community Room at the Churchville Nature Center on the 2nd and 3rd Tuesday of each month (except holidays) at 7:30p. This is the year-round schedule. The practice, weather and sunlight permitting, will be held each Tuesday evening outdoors at the Nature Center in the overflow parking lot. Check the Facebook page for updates and for quicker response to queries. A small donation is invited to cover the low, but real, cost of the site.

Come and learn how to fence. Many styles & time periods are discussed and individual/melee skills are practiced. Loaner gear is available from the Barony if you’d like to try your hand. Lord Morwill MacShane is our fencing marshall, and he hopes to see you there!
