Altavia News

From Their Excellencies


Altavia Anniversary was a big success. Thank you Meliora for putting together such a great event with the help of the committee of people who backed her up. So many helping hands and that is why it went so well. The raffle was profitable, we sold almost all the cups, and all the games we had were played by many. We have new champions, hope to see all the new champions on the website. We are keeping last years equestrian (our very own Courtney), and Niko won unarmored at Potrero. I’d say yes Altavia Anniversary ROCKED! Next up Agincourt and Yule. Would like to see some newcomers joined with experienced Altavians to run these events.


Potrero happened and what fun it was even though both his excellency and I were out of sorts. A miracle happened that weekend, I spent more time on the archery range than his excellency did (unfortunately I didn’t shoot because of my shoulder). We had a fabulous group of campers thank you to our wonderful camp mistress Lady Monique. And also thank you to Flaxen Abbey for driving up the dragon wing and having camp all nice for us when we arrived. We had newcomers Vlad and Illarria and Denis and Ellaina (sorry I know I killed the spelling of those names), camping with us for the first time as well as Ann and Brigid (and Eadric the Younger who kept us all entertained) We had a fabulous pot luck dinner with House Valentine, Niko beat out the competition to become our Unarmored champion and we now know Paul can count down from at least 5!

Our practices have had lots of new people. That being said I’d like to look again at the possibility of purchasing the bow that we spoke about previously. I (and Cristof) have been running archery practice and we are in need of additional (especially left handed) bows.


Just an FYI, I leave tonight for the SCA 50th and will not be back until first of July. That being said there will be no Archery/ TW practice the 3rd Sunday. I’m hoping to be back for the first Sunday, but if I’m not Cristof and I believe Niko will be back by then too.


I am currently collecting for baskets for the outgoing and incoming Royals. Lyondomere and Coronation may be the only events we attend in July. We will not be going to Drieburgen arts/FOR.  Griffin Freehold is taking care of Meliora’s vigil. We can bring gluten free snacks and share with vigil and our own table. We have been asked to run archery and TW at pentathalon 2017, would like to have input on this.
