Classes at Fighter Practice
On March 21 join Countess Elisabeth de Rossignol for a class on Heraldic Display. Countess Elisabeth will be teaching not only how to register arms, but what to do with them. There are many wonderful decorative ways to use heraldry, in many different media, and all will make you and your kit look fabulously medieval. Class is at Fighter Practice on Tuesday from 6-8.
More classes are forthcoming. Stay tuned while our new Arts and Sciences minister, Countess Elisabeth de Rossignol, gets the schedule up and running!
Our Brand New Arts and Sciences Champion
Blew them away with his single entry at Kingdom Arts and Sciences. THL Thangbrand received the Scholar of An Tir, for scoring over 80 points on his entry. He also received the Laurels' Choice award. Bravo!!!
It is time for a Review of the Baronial Customary!!
The Seneschal writes:
It has been long overdue, the process has begun in opening for review the Baronial Customary. I am looking for 5 people that would like to help with the review. Those wanting to be a part of this committee will need to have a current paid membership, be a member of the Barony of Dragon’s Laire and be able to meet on selected Tuesday’s at fighter practice and only one member of a “couple” will be appointed to the committee. There will be (2) meetings in March, and 2 in April and we hope to close the review of the Customary with populace approval, in early May. If you are interested in being on the committee you will need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org not later than 11 March 2017.
From an email sent to the Dragon's Laire Email List on 02/03/2017, edited and formatted for the website by the Webminister.

We Need You to Submit Award Recommendations!
Before every Crown event, and many of the local events, it is important to remember to submit your recommendations for awards for your compatriots in the Barony. Testimonials from people who witness a good gentle doing a good deed are always important, save them up and submit them in an award recommendation to the Crown! You can do this easily online.
The Baron and Baroness request that if you do recommend someone for award that you drop them a note so that they can add their input as well.
If you see someone who works hard, creates beautiful artwork, provides leadership and inspiration, but you do not know what to recommend for an award, let the Baron and Baroness know. Tell them your anecdotes and observations, they’ll help sort it out and get that recommendation submitted. This is true for both Baronial and Kingdom level awards.
Weekly Baronial Fight Practice and Social:
We hold a weekly Baronial Fighter Practice, Social and get together every Tuesday night at the VFW Hall on Central Valley in Bremerton, WA from 6pm-8pm. All are welcome! Often Arts and Sciences classes are taught at the Tuesday social as well. For more information on classes, contact the Arts and Sciences Minister. See the map for the location.
Our practices and classes at practice are open to anyone interested and do not require medieval dress. Our events are also open to anyone but do require medieval dress. Loaner clothing can be arranged for our local events through Gold Key for those who do not have any yet, but it is best to ask in advance because our supply is limited.
About the Barony
The Barony of Dragon's Laire is composed of Kitsap County and Northern Mason County in Washington State, USA. It is well known in the community for our annual June Faire which open to the public. June Faire was once called Medieval Faire, the public may know it by that name still. Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds, interests and ages. We share an interest in the history and culture of the Middle Ages and pursue that interest through the study of combat techniques, arts and crafts, social structures and dress of the period. This study starts in the library and moves quickly to the forge, needle and tourney field for a real hands-on approach. This website provides a glimpse into our world and resources for our members.
The Barony of Dragon's Laire is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Inc. It is part of the Kingdom of An Tir (Northwest U.S. and parts of Western Canada.) The SCA is a not-for-profit educational organization that studies the history and culture of the Middle Ages by recreating it. The SCA has branches all over the USA and Canada, as well as many parts of Europe, Australia, and Asia. To locate a branch near you check the SCA Web site.
