Events & Activities Calendar

If you are going to be the Moot or Event Steward for an upcoming moot or event, or have an SCA-related activity you want listed on the calendar, please contact the Webminister!

If you have questions about any of the activities here, and find no contact information listed for the particular activity that interests you, please contact the Seneschal or the Chatelaine! Also note that the populace of our group tend to use the CAM List (group e-mail list) to announce last-minute changes, or plan activities, often forgetting to let the Webminister know to update these pages. Being subscribed to the CAM List is the best way to stay informed, long-term!

    One-Time & Infrequent Activities

    When What Where
    Sunday April 30, 3:00 pm Border Skirmish XIV Planning Meeting Perkins Restaurant, 11710 74th Pl, Kenosha, WI 53142
    Fri-Sun, June 9-11 Border Skirmish XXIV Walworth County Fair Grounds - Elkhorn, WI

    Moots:  If you wish to steward a moot, please submit a bid that includes a proposed venue, costs, and description of activities.

    On Sunday, 20 November 2016, the 2017 Planning Meeting was held. Below is the remainder of the planned 2017 calendar:

    April 23 - Spring Court Moot - UWM, in the Wisconsin Room Lounge - Moot Steward: Cecilia di’ Cafalu - CONFIRMED

    June 9-11 - Border Skirmish XXIV - Walworth County Fair Grounds - Elkhorn, WI - CAM Event Co-Steward Sibilia - CONFIRMED

    September 24 - Baronial Championships & Changeling Moot - Tentatively at Brandybrook Manor. Moot Steward: Sir Armond (tentatively)

    December 2 - Feast of the Boar’s Head XXXIX - Washington County Fair Park - West Bend, WI, Event Steward & Feast Steward Bids due by April Curia

    The kingdom has put out a call for bids for Fall 2017 Coronation and Crown Tournament. If you have any recommendations for places to hold either event, please submit them to the baronial seneschal by December curia.

    Baronial Championships is tentatively scheduled, but if someone else wishes to steward the moot and/or propose another date or location, please submit your proposal/offer to the baronial seneschal.

    There are no moots scheduled for February, May, June, July, August, October, November, and December. If you have an idea for a moot, project day, or just hang out and socialize day, let curia know.

    Moots are an excellent way new members to get some experience in running activities in the SCA. If you can organize a party, you can organize a moot. This year, the Shire of Ravenslake is the lead group for Border Skirmish, so if you interested in seeing how a major SCA event is run, or an activity area within an event, Border Skirmish XIV presents a great learning opportunity for you to deputy co-steward. If you are interested in being the event or feast steward for Boar’s Head, but are uncertain if you have “the experience” to do so, the barony has plenty of people to help you. So don’t let that stop you.

    In Service,
    The Honorable Lord Arnbjorn Karlsson
