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

Call to Arms

Greetings Fighters!

It has been a hard and wet winter. Spring approaches and with it the possibilities of War. Glorious War! Just reflect on the pleasure of vanquishing the enemy to do honor to our fair Baroness, to break shields and spill blood in her name.

Duchess Angharad, our new Baroness has bade me, build her an army to venture to Baroness War and smite the foe and add a page to her word fame! All of you itching to get out and throw rattan, (or eat some), now is your chance. Bring your weapons and your battle cries and let us show those we face the might of the great Barony of Aquaterra and her Baroness.

Baroness War in Vulcanfeldt is April8-10. You can find event info on the An Tir Kingdom Calendar.

I would appreciate your passing this along far and wide and should you choose to join us, drop me a note letting me know so I can plan our strategies.

Thank you

Youth Armored Combat Practice

Hello SCAers,

I’m Lady Sarah Pixie and I will be running all the Youth Armored Combat practices for the Snohomish and king counties until we get a a few new YAC officers for these baronies. I am the official YAC officer for the Barony of Madrone in King county.

Since I’m running regular practices for three different Baronies, I will only be running two practices a month in each barony.
Aquaterra’s Yac Practice will be the the 2nd and 4th Saturday practices at Evergreen Middle School near covered courtyard in Everett from 1 to 4 pm starting 2/27. 7621 Beverly Lane
Madrone’s Yac Practice will be the the 1st and 4th Monday practices at Kapa Cooperative School gym in Seattle from 7 to 9 pm starting 2/22. This is an indoor site with lights, heat, bathrooms, ect. 510 N 49th St
Wyewood’ Yac Practice will be the the 1st and 3rd Sunday at Kennydale Elementary School under covered courtyard in Renton from 11 am to 2 pm starting 2/7. 1700 NE 28th St

Please bring what ever gear your child currently has and let me know if he will need some or all loaner armor. I will bring swords, shields and what ever loaner is requested in advance. We will spend the 1st 30 min reviewing some of the ABC’s while the kids armor up and spend the next hour practicing in armor. Kids without armor are free to participate using PPWs. After that we will strip armor and take a break before letting them loose with the PPW’s until they wear themselves out or need to go home we will use this time to work on team building. Younger kids are free to participate using PPWs provided they have active parental participation.

Please email me with any questions.

Ursulmas

Greetings all,

Now that we’ve had a few days to slow back down after Ursulmas, we want to take a few moments to thank everyone who helped put on this wonderful event! The Event Team did a great job organizing everything! Ursulwyck Village turned out fantastic! Thank you to all of the Merchants who were able to attend, we hope it was a very profitable event for each of you! The many Marshals, Heralds, Water Bearers and everyone else who made the tournaments possible have our thanks as well! We were able to attend the Finals for almost every competition on Saturday and really enjoyed the opportunity to do so! Finally, we have had a lot of feedback from non-SCA people who greatly enjoyed the event, we would like to commend those of you who spent some time chatting with these guests over the weekend!

Thank you all for your efforts and we look forward to a wonderful year ahead,

Baron Bryson and Baroness Angharad
