It is most excellent to have you. I will let you know when I open the shop up again and you are more than welcome to come out.

  To all-

I have been in the SCA for just over a year with Castellan in 2007 
being my first event. I also have gone to Moonshadow's Triumph and 
Wiesenfuer's Baronial and a few other things here and there. I have 
been on this list for nearly 9 months but never responded for some 
reason. A few years ago, Arthur Blackmoon got Robin and Maryanne of 
Northkeep to join the SCA and Robin's son in law is my best friend, 
Douglas MacGriffin (his son is Avery O'Griffin). So thanks to 
Douglas, Robin and Arthur for getting me into the SCA, I am loving it. 
I play a roman centurion and am still working out the exact period.

I have been working on my roman armor for about six months now and am 
nearly complete. I am currently lacking better knees/legs and 
vambraces (which should be complete within a month) and sword, shield 
and Helmet. The sword/shield/helmet I anticipate being made/bought 
within 2 months. I have completed a nearly full set of Leather Armor 
including Gorget, Lorica Segmentata, Gladiator-style skirt and Arm 

I wanted to write a thank you note to a few of the people who have 
helped me over the last few weeks prepare for fighting. I really 
appreciate all of the helpful advice and care you have shown me by 
talking to me about armoring, fighting and other things. I met most 
of the people at fighter practice the last few weeks that have helped 
me, fought me and taught me a few things and I am grateful. I know I 
am forgetting a few of their names but a few are: Nick, William, 
Morgan, Evan, Ian, Ulric, Angus, JP and others. Also, and mostly 
thanks to:

Ulf- You rock! Thanks for loaning me my missing pieces and for 
helping me with all the advice.

Ungus- Thank you for the advice and help with my armor padding. I 
look forward to learning some armoring with you when you open your 

So, I hope to see all of you at Castellan again and look forward to 
fighting with you, shooting archery and feasting. Thanks so much!
