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.

List of Classes Currently Due to be Held at Fighter Practice

As of Nov 15th, classes at the Social/Fighter Practice are on hold over the holidays. Classes will resume after the New Years! Look forward to a new schedule in late Dec or early January. If there is something you wish to teach or wish to learn, please contact THL Theodoric the Scholar, Deputy MoAS

Note:

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.
