Barony of Aquaterra

Greetings from your Baron and Baroness

His Excellency Baron Bryson MacLachlan and his wife Her Excellency Baroness Angharad Banadaspus Drakenhefd

Greetings unto the people of the great Barony of Aquaterra,

We write to you now as the chosen Baron and Baroness of Aquaterra. When Their Majesties placed the coronets on our heads, they gave unto us the responsibility to care for, protect and nurture the Barony and the people who are the Barony. This is a task we take very seriously and we will work with you to uphold the trust placed in us by the Crown.

Now that the serious commentary is out of the way, we want to make our time as your Coronets a time of fun, pageantry and growth! If you have ideas, take the time to come find us. We will make time to listen and talk with you! If you want to try something new, come find us and we’ll help you meet the right people! Bring your banners to events, if you don’t have one, we know people! If you’re not having fun, come find us. We’ll sic a jester or two on you or bring out the bouncy horses!

We look forward to our time as your Baron and Baroness. We hope that you will work with us to continue building on the ideas and traditions that have made Aquaterra great and implement new ideas that will bring even more glory to our people and lands!

In Service,

Baron Bryson MacLachlan

Good Yule Silent Auction

Greetings Aquaterra,

At this year’s Good Yule, there will be a silent auction. The funds from this auction will go towards purchasing a period gate pavilion. Please bring cash or check.

We already have some donations being put forward including:
1 Costco pavilion (former baronial gate pavilion)
1 custom banner made by Dame Rosamund

To make this a successful auction, we are in need of donations. Donations can be anything that is SCA appropriate ( feast gear, candle lanterns/holders, yardage of fabric, trims, books, small pieces of camp furniture, commissioned garments).

Donations can be made, even if you are not able to attend the event. Arrangements can be made for items to be delivered to/picked up until Sunday Dec 6. Please contact myself ( or Cassandra de Kyncade ( if you have any questions or to make arrangements for donations.

Wiki help at Good Yule

Greetings unto the Barony from Michelino!

I plan to attend Good Yule, and will be making myself available to assist anyone who might have any questions about, or need help entering items into the An Tir Culture Wiki.

Everyone can have their own people page in the wiki. Aquaterra’s entries can always use more personal memories, stories, history, and such. Also, if you have fun memories of any event in the past – near term or long ago – those stories are excellent things to add.

Just look for the fellow with a laptop and a sign offering wiki help!

The wiki is at

Thanks, and looking forward to Good Yule.

Fabric Swap & Sell – Dec 6

Greetings Aquaterra,

Join us for a Fabric Swap and Sell this month! This is a chance to empty out some of your stash and trade or sell it to those who want it. The option for selling is for those who are new to the SCA who may not have a fabric stash to trade from.

Please make sure your fabric is SCA appropriate (linen, wool, velvet, home dec, etc.). Also welcome are trims, furs and leather.

The fabric swap will be Sunday Dec 6, 12 pm-4 pm (1200-1600) at the Smokey Point Chapel Fellowship Hall, 13914 45th Ave NE, Marysville WA 98271. This is located on the Navy Base Annex.

Note: This gathering will be substituting the monthly A&S general meeting.

As a note of clarification:
Any money that changes hands at this will go to the seller of the fabric/trim. This activity is designed to be more of a fabric swap, but we know that not everyone has a stash in which to trade from. That is why we are allowing the option to sell/buy.

For those who sell any fabric or trim, please be mindful of your “asking” price. Please do not expect to get what you paid for out of it.

Thank you,

Yvette du Coeur
