War of the Roses

Yay! I have returned from the middle ages! This weekend’s camping trip was a lot of fun! For anyone not familiar with the event set up by the Barony Concordia of the Snows, it pitts the house of Lancaster versus the house of York. War points are awarded for each field won, fencing, heavy lists, archery, thrown weapons, brewing competition, seige weapons, arts and sciences and shopping (which ever side spends more money wins the point).

This weekend was packed with goings-on: His Excellency the Baron Concordia of the Snows received the Laurel (Kingdom order for the arts), three people were awarded the baronial Order of the Sapphire, five citizens were awarded the baronial Order of Friends (for service to the Barony), four dogs were awarded the Order of theFawn (for service to the Barony and one posthumously), and the Kingdom awarded the owner of the country club a baronetcy though he does not participate in the SCA for all of his help, kindness and generosity. 

The weekend over all was quite fun and though mildly marred by occasional torrential downpours on Saturday and a air mattress with a leak on Friday evening, it went off without a hitch. I’ve included a photo of me in my finished Chemise and a skirt made “just because” Thursday evening prior to the weekend as well as one of our camp right after I finished setting up Friday. 
P.S. Anyone planning on going to Roses in the future that has never been be prepared to deal with lots of rocks hidden undergound when you stake in your tent.
