Phoenix Festival, celebrating rebirth and renewal.
Join the Barony of Lyondemere as we invest our new Baron and Baroness, Pierre de Dieppe and Avicia de Na Baiona and celebrate all manner of rebirth and renewal with the following activities:
There will be lists in armored and rapier combat to determine the baronial champions. Specific format will be decided on the number of entrants. A Champion is the Baronial representative to the martial community. Prospective champions should be prepared to answer questions, respond to challenges, and likewise represent their martial art to the Baron and Baroness. Lyondemere champions are given an honorary position on the Baronial retinue and their Lyondemere gate fees are covered for the length of their service. Please consider these responsibilities and privileges when making your decision to enter this list, especially if you are already the champion of another barony.
Renewed Art & Science display and contest.
Many of us re-purpose objects in our projects; curtains and tablecloths become garb, yarn from a sweater is woven into a belt, an old necklace provides just the right beads, damaged cups or silverware is melted down to the casting pot, etc. Show us your recycled project and enter it in the contest where we will award a People’s Prize, Baron & Baroness’ Prize and a Laurels’ Prize. Entries should have documentation describing what was re-used; historic and process documentation is not required.
Shortly after court Their Excellencies Pierre and Avicia invite one and all to join them for lunch. Meats, breads, and cheeses (many crafted by members of the barony) will be offered buffet style so our new Baron and Baroness can greet everyone.
Re-Home your Relics Fundraiser.
Lyondemere Anniversary wouldn’t be complete without our “Basket Drawing” fundraiser. This time we are offering forgotten, unused, and otherwise unloved but serviceable objects from our own collections so that they might find a new home and new life. And it’s your opportunity to offer a usable, SCA-appropriate object for this endeavor. A donation will garner one ticket for the drawing that can otherwise be bought for $1 or 6 for $5.
We are grateful for your participation in our annual fundraiser.
