Greetings to the lists from Lord Stephen Macthomas, herald and deputy
seneschal of the Canton of Gate's Edge!
I apologize in advance for the inevitable duplication of bandwidth that comes
from mailing announcements to multiple lists.
The SCA newcomers' meetings for the northern portions of the Barony of
Stargate and the Canton of Gate's Edge will begin this Thursday, November
18th at 7:30 pm at my home. The schedule of these meetings is as follows:
Nov 18 - The Basics: SCA 101 and Costuming
Dec 2 - The Marshalate: Chivalric, Rapier, Archery and Equestrian Activities
Dec 9 - The Rest: A&S, Heraldry and an Open Discussion of All Things SCAdian
SCA 101 is a brief overview of the SCA designed to give our newcomers a
general familiarity with the Society and the Dream. This class will be
taught by Honorable Lady Annes Clotilde von Bamburg.
Costuming is a basic run-down of costuming styles and more detailed
instructions on how to create a T-tunic, a simple but very practical piece of
garb. This class will be run by Lady Angharad Rhonddha.
If you are a newcomer and wish to participate in these classes, please
contact me and let me know your intent as soon as possible, so that our
instructors know how many sets of class materials need to be prepared.
(Besides, my apartment only holds so many people!) You may either call me at
281-651-0781 or e-mail me at stephenmacthomas at aol.com to reply. If you are a
former newcomer and wish to attend, you are cordially invited to do so - the
more, the merrier.
Each of these meetings will start on the usual SCA meeting schedule: start
arriving at 7:00 pm and we'll start meeting at 7:30. Because of the amount
of information covered each evening, we expect that each night will end
around 9:30 or so. Drinks will be provided to all and all are invited to
bring the finger food/munchie of their choice.
To reach my home, take your best route to Interstate 45 and exit on
Cypresswood. Turn west onto Cypresswood and pass through the Holzwarth
intersection. Take your next right onto Hickory Twig Way, past the
commercial lots and gentle S-curve. Take a right into the main entrance of
Cypresswood Crossing Apartments and dial 055 to let me buzz you through the
gate. My building is the one to your right as you're dialing in. To park,
head all the way down the drive, turn right, turn right again and park as
near the exit gate as possible. I'm in apartment 55, the second door along
I hope to see many of you here for what promises to be an exciting and
education series of get-togethers.
In your service,
P.S. If you know of a newcomer who is in the area and would be interested in
attending these meetings, please pass this info along to them as soon as
