A Barony in the Kingdom of An Tir which is
a Part of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA, Inc)
Their Excellencies of Dragon's Laire, Conchobar MacEoin and Eilidh Keldeleth, invite one and all to join them for a weekend of fun in the re-created Middle Ages and Renaissance at June Faire XXXIII (2015) in the picturesque township of Port Gamble, Washington. Dragon's Laire is especially filled with anticipation and excitement as we look forward to celebrating our TWENTIETH anniversary as the BARONY of Dragon's Laire in 2015. Come be with us and be part of our merriment!
This is our annual public demonstrations and our premier Baronial event. Please be prepared to show our modern guests all the wonders of the SCA with your dedication and skill.
Hand-To-Hand Combat / Martiallate Activities (Fighting): One giant field in the center of the entire show will be dedicated to the fighting arts. Come witness fighters in heavy armor attack each other ferociously to defend the honour of their inspiration. Watch the fighters of the Renaissance fight each other with deadly skill with finer arts of the rapier duel. In another field nearby watch the future generations of those who play in our organization as they learn the fighting arts in Youth Combat.
Range Combat and Competition: In another arena the best archers in the land will compete for the highest scores on the archery ranges. There will even be a field where the archers will allow all comers and members of the Modern Public to try their hand with the bow. Next to the archery ranges will be the Thrown Weapons ranges, where those who specialize in the thrown axes, hatchets and knives will demonstrate their skill. If the fates allow, there will also be a demonstration of a ballista built by members of the Barony of Dragon's Laire. It will be a breath-taking demonstration of truly long-range combat.
The Arts and Sciences of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance will be on full display in the Artisans and Craftsman's Village. Practically any trade or art practiced will be on display. From cooking to wood-working. From black-smithing to weaving. A full range of fiber arts will be shown. A potters wheel will be in full production with their wares for display and for sale. The Village this year will be the largest yet!
Living History: In addition to the demonstrations of the Village, a full set of encampments will be on display so that all guests may wander through them and enjoy how we enjoy a weekend in re-creation in pavilions, with banners flying anddemonstrations on how we personally enjoy a weekend in re-creation of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
The Marketplace: Each year we scour the lands of the Kingdom to find merchants to fill our Marketplace who display the best of the wares that can be found in the SCA.
Music and the Bardic Arts: Listen as musicians wander the site playing music from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance on instruments that were played in that time period. Story-tellers will enchant the crowds as they tell the stories of the ages, and of the modern re-created ages. There may also be demonstrations of dancing from the period in stages specially set-up on site to show-case the dancing styles of the time.
If we are truly fortunate, the King and Queen of the lands of An Tir will be in attendance and will delight all on site with their grace, their chivalry and their presence!
