Buckland Baroness Birthday Backyard BBQ @ Baron and Baroness' House
Apr 29 @ 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Buckland Baroness Birthday Backyard BBQ @ Baron and Baroness' House | Southampton | Pennsylvania | United States

Yes that’s right it’s a BBBBBBQ!

Join us for a backyard party to celebrate Kirsten’s (Sigridh’s) Birthday. We will supply the dogs and burgers, but we ask everyone to bring something to share such as a salad, veggie, chips, a favorite beverage, etc. …

I will be setting up the period medieval game of Lawn Billards for everyone to try, and I will also have a couple dozen target archery bows in various poundage on display for sale.

All the proceeds from the sale will go to the Barony of Buckland Cross.

HOODWINKED! A Hood Making Workshop @ Churchville Nature Center
Apr 30 @ 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm
HOODWINKED! A Hood Making Workshop @ Churchville Nature Center | Churchville | Pennsylvania | United States
Join Yasamin al-Sardaniyya (Better known as Jaz) on April 30 for a Medieval Hood workshop.
This will be less lecture and more hands on.
There will be examples of 14/15th century styles as well as the Skjoldehamn hood for you to see, feel and perhaps try on. I may have a few other examples ready at that time as well!
There will be resources and instructions for creating your own patterns from scratch and some patterns that are already made/pieced together to play with and mock up from.
We will *NOT* be sewing in this session.
Please bring:
• Tracing paper (I recommend freezer or butchers paper)
• Writing implements: A sharpie for tracing to your paper and a pencil or something to mark your fabric
• Tape measure
• Scissors
• If you have a yardstick/Tsquare, that could be helpful as well.
If time allows, or you are so bold to pattern straight to fabric – you may want to have:
• 1 yd of washed and pressed Muslin/Mock up fabric for each type of hood you want to work on. (Old sheets are great for this)
• Pins for fitting (I suggest safety/basting pins so they don’t fall out of your mock up on the way home)
Archery Practice
May 1 @ 2:00 pm – Oct 22 @ 4:00 pm
Archery Practice @ Churchville | Pennsylvania | United States

Bi-Weekly Barony Archery Practice.

Please note that this practice takes place on County owned property, and behind a private residence. The residence is not visible from the road, so after entering the property, follow the driveway up and around to the left. Please park in the grass in front of the house, and DO NOT park in front of either garage. When exiting your car, please walk around the right side of the house to the backyard. DO NOT walk around the left side of the house because you will be walking on to the Archery Range. If you require loaner equipment, please notify the Marshal in Charge a minimum of 24 hours in advance.

Fencing Practice @ Churchville Nature Center
May 2 @ 7:30 pm

Fencing Practice happens in the Community Room at the Churchville Nature Center on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month (except holidays) at 7:30p. This is the year-round schedule. The practice will be held each Tuesday evening INDOORS at the Nature Center in the atrium. 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. Don Morwill MacShane is our fencing marshal, and he hopes to see you there!
