From the Baroness


The world isn't always a kind and loving place...Please make sure that you hug your families, you hug your friends when you get the chance and that you take time to give yourself a hug.


With that in mind, we also encourage you to rat out your friends that you see are doing positive, creative things and being supportive of others who are doing so. Please make sure to fill out those award recs. and send them off.


Baroness Alianora


From the Seneschal


In-Person Meeting Ideas

Please forward your ideas and plans to the Baronage and Seneschal so that we can assist. We don’t intend to or desire to monitor what individuals or small groups choose to do in private backyards, but if you hold an SCA gathering we expect you to obey The Crown and local authorities.


Any public gathering announced on a recognized SCA social media site must follow all Kingdom and local government guidance! Their Majesties expect you to wear masks, socially distance, limit group size and observe any other guidelines affecting your location.

Virtual Fighter Practice This Wednesday at 7 pm


I would like to thank his Excellency Semjaka for last week’s class. His use of LEGO CGI made it very easy to follow. We will have the videos for the last two weeks posted soon.

This week we have Duke Sean of Artemisa teaching a class on body mechanics. HRM Lucian has referenced Duke Sean several times so I look forward to gleaning as much knowledge as I can. I look forward to seeing you all there.


Thank you,

Sir Dirik


Wednesday, July 15th – 7 pm – Body Mechanics with Duke Sean

Join Fighter Practice Zoom Meeting:

From the Archer Marshal:

Greetings BFS archers!

In order to maintain social distancing guidelines, we will be starting a second archery practice in Johnson County.
Starting on Sunday, July 19th, we will be at Shawnee Mission Park archery field. I am tentatively setting these for 6 pm to 8 pm, but I am very open to changing that time if another works better.
For those who have been to the SMP archery range in the past, it has been significantly upgraded, including shade pavilions over the shooting line. For those who haven't been there before, it has 1 or 2 butts each at various ranges.

You will need to bring your own water, maintain social distancing, and wear a mask. You will also need to buy an archery permit.
Google map for the location:
Shawnee Mission
To purchase a JCPRD permit over the phone with a credit card, call (913) 438-7275. A receipt will be emailed to serve as a temporary permit and you will receive your physical permit by mail.
You can also purchase them in person at the locations listed here: https://www.jcprd.com/642/Annual-General-Permits
Contact me if you plan to attend so we can keep track of numbers.

Non nobis solum,

Master Mathurin Kerbusso

Next week, July 22:

Why Did They Eat That? (Honorable Lady Ysabel de la Oya). This class will look at the cultural, economic, legal, and scientific reasons why people in the Middle Ages ate the way they did. This class also discusses the four humors.
