Dreikönigsfest: Twelfth Night Arts and Sciences AS 50

18 Nov

Holy. Roman. Empire.

In honor of the German-themed event, Dreikönigsfest, the Arts and Sciences will feature items which are Holy, Roman, or from an Empire.

-Bring out your finest holy goods—a pilgrim badge? A reliquary?
-Share your latest Roman creation—a new palla? Some lorica squamata?
-Imperial finery—Ottonian cloak clasp? A Seljuk pottery bowl?

Any combination of the three will be welcome as well.

Please let me know the following so I can have space for everyone:
• Item
• Period
• Pick one: Display; display for commentary; visit with others for feedback
• Your SCA name and SCA location
• If it’s loud, messy, bigger than a tabletop display, wants to be against a wall, etc.
• Moas at nordskogen.northshield org
• If you would like to visit with others for feedback, please let me know by December 21.

Dance practice this Sunday (Nov. 1)

26 Oct

I’ll be teaching at our next dance practice on Sunday, Nov. 1 from 5-7 pm.
It would be GREAT if I could have some idea how many folks are coming so that I will know what dances I could teach!
In a perfect world, at least eight people would be there AND would have made an attempt to memorize the steps to Glory of the West which are available by following this link. There will also be some sort of cheat sheet provided for this dance.
Please let me know if you can come or cannot come by commenting the post I’ve made to our Nordskogen Facebook group or by sending me an email at
