Spring Schola:  Russian Exchange Ducklings!

The Ducks of the Barony of An Dubhaigeainn have turned 22 and are soon to graduate college.  What are we going to do?!  We have mastered Swimming, Waddling, Quacking, & Rolling Water Off Our Backs, so it's time for some fun traveling.

We are excited to announce this year's annual Spring Schola and Feast inspired by the faraway lands of Russia!  Learn to cook the "local" cuisine, classes in fiber arts, silk painting, scribal arts, and perhaps even learn some nefarious uses for medieval herbs.  Get your hands dirty with woodworking and blacksmithing, or put on those gauntlets for some martial instruction in both heavy list and archery.  Exact class schedule TBA, See www.SCADucks.org or this listing for updates

Baronial Champions Lady Juliana le Chaluner and Lady Galle Amsel will be stepping down from their posts after a long hard winter, calling for new Arts & Sciences and Bardic Champions to be named on this day.  All are invited and encouraged to participate in these Annual Competitions that welcome Spring's Beauty back into the lands of our Barony.

The Bardic Competition:  Prepare two different types of Bardic performance, with a preference to your own period/persona.  Documentation not required, but welcome.  There will be a populace vote, and decision by the Coronet.

The A&S Competition:  Create a piece inspired by your own time and history.  Are you a 14th century seamstress? Then perhaps create a garment in line with 14th century fashion or patterns.  Scribes could submit C&I based on the period and region they live.  Entrants are not restricted in their creativity across mediums, for example even the seamstress could do a painting that highlighted the fashion of her time, or the scribe embroider a feather quill, a crucial tool to his work.  Documentation is strongly encouraged, though not strictly required.  Please be able to talk about your inspiration for your piece.  There will be a populace vote, and decision by the Coronet.

There will be a scrumptious dayboard as well as delicious feast to follow after the Spring Court of Baron David Vásquez de Valencia and Baroness Mistress Suzanne Neuber de Londres.

The Spring Schola will be held on March 29th 2014 at the Universalist Unitarian Church in Huntington.

Since this will be a FEAST EVENT, it will be All Day 10 am to 10 pm.
