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.

Work Party at Masonic Park May 10th

Good afternoon!

We will be doing our official work party on Saturday, May 10th, at 10am. Please come help the Masons with a variety of projects, mostly easy things. They have been working hard all winter to improve the park! If you would like to bring something to potluck, please do. The Masons may have something for lunch, but their budget it tight!

Also, the Masons have invited volunteers to camp for free any weekend they volunteer, though they will put campers to work longer than our offical work party lasts. If you want to go on a weekend between here and the end of May other than Mother’s Day weekend, please call ahead and tell them you are with the SCA and would like to camp/volunteer.

New meeting location – trial

Please join us April 29th at the Denny’s on 128th at 7 pm for our April business meeting!

That’s right! We will be trying out this location to see how it works out for us. It has a banquet room that can seat 30-50 people, is on the ground floor, is wheelchair accessible, and has a door that can close. They also have an affordable range of prices for their food. We do have a reasonable minimum order we need to meet, so if you order food, please order it in the room so it gets counted toward that. This will be a trial run to see how the arrangement works out for both us and the restaurant, so this is not currently the permanent location. The room is reserved under “SCA”.

Denny’s, 132 128th St SW, Everett, WA 98204

This is just across the freeway from where the business meetings used to be held (O’Donnell’s).
From the south, take exit 186 off of I-5, turn left on 128th St SW, cross the freeway, make a U-turn at 4th Ave W. Denny’s will be on your right.
From the north, take exit 186 off of I-5, turn right on 128th St SW, make a U-turn at 4th Ave W. Denny’s will be on your right.

Hope to see you all there!

you’re traveling north.
