Event details

So vast are the lands of Stonemarche that each summer we break apart in the tradition of the Italian Contradas and compete against each other in a series of games.  Our Contradas are:  Hippocampo (Seacoast Area, UNH, Giggleswick and East of Concord, East of Rt.  93), Sole (West:  Keen, Hanover, Dartmouth, Littleton, Concord), Ferrari (South:  Manchester, Nashua, Salem, and areas in between) and Corvo (Rt.  25 from Maine to Meredith, Rt.  104 from Meredith to Danbury, then Rt.  4 to Enfield.  It then jogs north to just north of Orford).  If you do not wish to declare for a Contrada, you may declare for Stonemarche instead as we all try our hand at games of skill and chance for fun, sportsmanship and to promote healthy competition and pride in our beloved Barony

we will be having many other activities including

Silver tongue,

Stonemarche Sheep game,

****Golden Sword Tourney will be held on SATURDAY please note this is a change*****

Covid policy per East KIngdom rule
Vaccine/ Testing Requirements:
The East Kingdom requires that all attendees ages 5 and up at all in-person gatherings show proof of either full vaccination against COVID-19 or a medically supervised negative COVID test taken within 72hours of the event.  Proof of vaccination or a negative test shall not be required for children under 5.  Attendees aged 18 or older will have to show government-issued ID or SCA blue membership card matching test results or vaccination proof to gain entry to the event.

Masking :
Masks are no longer required at outdoor events, including martial activities.  However, masks are still required for indoor gathering.  Please note that this includes folks gathering in a public tent / pop-up / pavilion with 3 or 4 walls.  The air flow with 3 or 4 walls up is insufficient to be safely unmasked.  Masks may be lowered briefly while actively eating or drinking.
Of course, many will wish to continue to wear masks, and we respect that choice.  Everyone must take the steps necessary for their own sense of safety at our activities.
