My name is Lady Alana O'Keeve, and I am currently the Seneschal of the Shire of Blak Rose. In the almost 20 years I've been in the SCA, I've found that I am most content when washing dishes, shifting tables for feast, or otherwise helping out. My most recent pathway to service has been in the martial arena, where I have been an Archery Marshal for 6+ years, and I just recently became a Thrown Weapons Marshal. In addition to running local practices and being the Marshal-in-Charge for events, I have also assisted in the training of archery and thrown Marshals. I have also taken an interest in heraldry and, along with Joscelin le esqurel, have helped out local people with their heraldic submissions. If you have any questions about thrown weapons, archery, or heraldry please feel free to contact me, and if I can't help you, I can find someone who can!
