Welcome from the Baron & Baroness
Greetings to those who read these words, from Baron Richard and Baroness Annabelle, Baron and Baroness of Rising Waters.
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our Baronial webpage. We hope that what you see here will compel you to come visit our fair lands – if you don’t already live within her bounteous borders.
The SCA is the Middle Ages For All Ages.
Anyone is welcome to come to our events and our meetings to view what we do and to ask questions. Costumes are only necessary if you are attending one of our events, not a practice or meeting.
Heavy Weapons (Fighting): The minimum age to participate is 16 years.
Archery: There is no age restriction, and there is loaner equipment for people to use.
Thrown Weapons (Axes and Knives): Children should have parental supervision; loaner equipment is available. Closed-toed shoes a must!
Dancing: There is no age restriction, and all you need are your own two feet!
Each and every member of our fair Barony is equally important to us, as are their wishes, ideas and suggestions. We will remain extremely approachable, and open to all who wish to talk with us. We were elected to lead the Barony, but it is the people who will guide us and the Barony of Rising Waters into a fun, eventful, and powerful place to be within the Kingdom.
We remain in Service to the Barony and the Dream,
Baron Richard and Baroness Annabelle
Murder Melee 2010 Report:
Thank you to all who came to Murder Melee this weekend.
It was a wonderful event with lots to do and lots to see.
It was good to see our Barony members continuing the tradition of helping others. Our 5 person Archery team came in third in the Archery Competition, our Fencing Champion Findhabair is now a warranted Fencing Marshall, our fighters numbered 5 and so we joined forces with Septentria and Skraeling Althing to be the Ealdormere United FC (fighting club). We tied for fourth place with one victory. Our Baron authorized in Fencing.
Some of the scrolls presented in court were done by members of the Barony. They were beautiful artistic visions. It was super wonderful to see Baron Tynne out and about. Selwyn received the Boars Tusk from Ben Dunfirth for her work in the Boffer Community, and House Black Patch received a Boars Tusk from Ben Dunfirth for their security service. Lady Rosalind Pax of Castle Rising was called into kingdom court since she was not there Her Majesty assumed she was in a kitchen somewhere.
Grande Court will be held at War of the Trillium, so keep those recommendations coming. Also if you plan to attend War of the Trillium please let us know.
On another exciting note, Llewllyn ap Mogred was asked by Mistress Rachel to be her student, and he agreed to the relationship. Mistress Rachel also asked Baroness Rosalinda to be her Apprentice and she accepted. Countess Tangwystl asked Mistress Rachel’s daughter Lady Elizabeth to be her Apprentice and she accepted.
Thank you to all who helped us out this weekend, it was so kind and very much appreciated.
Yours In Service,
Richard and Annabelle
Baron and Baroness of Rising Waters
