Ursulmas is Coming Up

Ursulmas Medieval Faire

Ursulmas Medieval Faire was created as a weekend of winter Tournaments and public demonstrations. The naming of the event (see Dianna of the Silver Shore’s link below) and the heartfelt tradition of the Ursulmas event is shared not only by our local members in Snohomish County but King, Pierce, Skagit and Whatcom Counties too.

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.

Problem with Storage Run Last Night (12/18/14)

For those who went to storage last night and could not get in, I’m sorry.  We were unable to access the storage unit due to circumstances.  Once access is once again gained, I will reschedule.

Again, I am sorry.

AQ Culinary Guild meeting Tuesday 16 December

Banner War 2013

The AQ Culinary Guild meeting will be held tonight, Tuesday December 16 from 6-9 PM, at my house in Lake Stevens (directions below).

This months topic: Planning the Culinary Guild display at Ursulmas.

Everyone is welcome, the Culinary Guild meetings are open to all, cooks or not. Even if you have no interest in cooking, we still need people to eat what we make! If you are under 18 you need to bring a parent.

Directions to my house:
>From I-5 north or south take Hwy. 2 east (Snohomish); take the Lake Stevens exit, Hwy. 204;
at the third light turn left onto Hwy. 9 (north); at the next light turn right (east) onto Lundeen parkway;
there are now 2 roundabouts, yield to traffic in the circle, go around the second one until you are going north onto Callow Road.
My house # is 2425, about 7 houses up on the right, lots of trees in the yard. The driveway is just beyond the power pole. Look for the SCA sign and the house number (2425) painted on the driveway. Please use caution coming up the driveway, or the sidewalk. The drive goes up the hill to a large garage, (old travel trailer, my little blue car) There are stairs back down to the back door. Come on in!
There is also some parking directly across the street. Please do not park in front of the neighbors mailboxes though!
