Welcome to Aquaterra

Warm greetings to friends and visitors! We, the gentle populace of Aquaterra, invite you to come and explore our enchanted land of water, mountains and meadows. Share in the camaraderie of delightful music and dance, games, fine food and brews, chivalrous combat, and all things medieval. We re-enact the Middle Ages as they should have been. Peruse these pages for activities, meetings and events.

A&S Bazaar Class – Need Help with your Heraldry?

The next “A&S Bazaar – Ithra Series” class will be “Drawing Heraldry: Yours and Others” – and will be held tomorrow night, Tuesday, March 3rd at the next Aquaterra Social Meeting.

Daigo Tsukime is willing to walk you through drawing some basic heraldry with an eye to design and Society restrictions. Actual class time will have emphasis on getting the design on the paper as opposed to artistic ability so all levels are welcome. There will be time for one on one activity. She is also willing to take commissions at this time. Specific historical accuracy and “pretty” are not the focus.

Class Time: 7:30-8:30pm

Aquaterra Social Meetings are held from 7-9pm at the Snohomish Boys & Girls Club 402 2nd Street Snohomish, WA 98290. Please bring a snack or beverage to share.

NOTE: If you are interested in a class and uncertain who to contact, please contact me off-list. I will be happy to reach out to others and assist you in finding a class and/or instructor.

Social Night – March 3, 2015

Tomorrow night is the Aquaterra Social Night. Hope to see you there – and there will be Girl Scout cookies for sale.

Come chat with friends, share your latest project, and more.

We are meeting at the Snohomish Boys and Girls Club 7 – 9pm

Persona Class – Madonnas, Sluts, & Ladies

Greetings everyone,

This coming Sunday, March 1 at 10 am at my home I will present my persona development class for ladies – men will profit from the discussion too – titled “Madonnas, Sluts & Ladies.” This class is geared toward gaining an understanding of the roles women played in the middle ages and how medieval women may be incorrectly perceived by modern women. I will attempt to explain what honor means to medieval people – both men and women – what roles the Church and the cult of Mary Magdalene play in medieval thinking and the legitimate role of the prostitute in medieval times. We will discuss whether or not young ladies felt trapped by the men in their lives and wished to escape into more freedom; whether or not medieval women donned armor and went to war; and for what crime was Joan of Arc executed. We will explore the standards by which a woman measured her self-worth, and we will look at the external forces which surrounded a woman who desired a career within the merchant class or within the Church.

This is a 2-hour session and includes the opportunity for some give-and-take discussion. It is part of the monthly A&S meetings/classes given through Aquaterra’s A&S group under the guidance of HL Samira, A&S Minister.

Please respond by email to both HL Samira (melodyrythem@yahoo.com) and me (ravenstream@comcast.net) if you plan to attend so that we can be sure to have adequate handouts available.

Zip Codes in Aquaterra

Greetings!

To help you prepare for the upcoming polling, we are publishing the list of zip codes that the SCA Inc. uses to determine who are the paid members living in Aquaterra. If your current address does not fall into one of these zip codes you are considered to live “outside” the Barony and will not automatically receive a polling form on the day polling is done.

If you live outside Aquaterra, will not have a current membership at the end of May, or cannot get to the polling site on the day polling takes place, Their Majesties encourage you to still let your voice be heard. There will be an announcement in the April Crier giving specific instructions on how to do this. Also watch the Reeds, the Aquaterra website and Facebook page as instructions will be published there too.

The zip codes are published on our website: http://www.aquaterra.antir.sca.org/zip-codes-in-aquaterra/  This link can be found on the “Who We Are” page, a link found at the bottom of our website.  Also, take a moment now to verify that SCA Inc. has your current address on file and that your membership does not expire before the end of May.  If you prefer, you can e-mail me off list to request the list be sent to you via e-mail.
