Join MOAS Helena the Quiet at this week’s meeting (May 11) as we continue the work begun in April on the Rapier loaner gear.
Project coordinators Coquette du Lyon and Bastien de la Mesa will be bringing the cut pieces of 5 sets to assemble; please bring your sewing machines if you are able, that we might all bask in the glow of our progress at night’s end. An iron and ironing board are also being provided.
A Facebook event for the meeting’s activities has been posted, and the baronial calendar has been updated to reflect the extra information.
Gui l’Joueur is putting forward one last push for volunteers to take on needed roles at Schützenfest, May 6–8 at Camp Singing Hills, in Waterville. Click on the Volunteer tab on the site’s main menu to see what roles are still available. Continue reading
The second boffer practice for the Barony of Nordskogen will be this Tuesday, April 19 at 6:30 p.m. We will be meeting at the Barony’s heavy weapons practice site in South Minneapolis at Brackett Park, located at 2728 39th Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN, 55406. See you there!
Practice will be on Sunday, April 24, from 3:30–5:30 p.m., in Room 107 (where rapier practice happens on Wednesdays).
This month’s dances will be connected to water in some way, for a theme of “April Showers.” RSVP to Rosanore of Redthorn via email, on Facebook by messaging Susan Guthmann Henry, or by posting to the Nordskogen Dancers Facebook page.
The Bwana Archery Range is closed for Easter Sunday and it looks like rain.
So, the Nordskogen Archery Marshals have cancelled archery practice this week.

Dance practices will now be happening once a month. Our March practice will be on Sunday, March 13, from 4:00-5:30 p.m., in Room 107 (where rapier practice happens on Wednesdays).
In collaboration with the Clerk of Precedence, I have managed to get a version of our data back up under the Our People tab of the website. Note that the list has been offline for more than 3 years, and so we will need your help updating it. Each entry was entered by hand over a period of days. Look for your own entry, and consider sending any updates to Coquette du Lyon. It only gets better from here!
Our first Quarterly Moot will be on March 9 at GPS. For those that weren’t at the business meeting last week, our Baron and Baroness and the group decided to jazz it up and have a special moot about once a quarter, instead of smaller monthly moots. These Quarterly Moots will have more of a small event feel.
That being said, on March 9, it will be a Gulf Wars theme. We’ll have a small court—with awards (hint, hint), presentation of the baronial pennant for Gulf Wars, a Rapier Tournament, and potluck dinner.
A message from Their Excellencies Nordskogen:
We would very much appreciate your input for Baronial Award Recommendations for our upcoming March Moot. With Twelfth Night fresh in our minds, you likely remember individuals who contributed to the event and should be recognized for that effort. But please don’t limit your thoughts to just that event; we are sure that you have noticed other contributions which should be recognized by us.
