Their Sylvan Highnesses: To be determined at Fall Crown Tournament, October 7, 2017

A Missive from Their Royal Majesties of Æthelmearc:

Unto our noble people of Æthelmearc,

The Month of October will be very full indeed in our lands with many fine events and tournaments to choose from. We will be seeking Heirs for this great Kingdom at the 20 Year Celebration and Crown Tournament. There will be displays of our Kingdom’s rich heritage along with many other activities.

During our reign we wish to make new comers feel welcome and part of our society. One plan to facilitate this is the drinking vessel project. We ask your generosity in donating serviceable or new drinking vessels: mugs, chalices, horns, goblets etc. These will be given to new comers in court if it is their first event. There is also a need for award medallions and cords. If you with to donate any of these items please contact THL Antoinette Delorraine or Lady McKenna Henderson (Red) will be happy to collect them.

We will be traveling to many events this month in Æthelmearc and we will be also be traveling to Atlantia join our noble cousins at the
War of the Wings on Oct 19-22. Please continue to send us letters of recommendation detailing the deeds of our noble populace, (at least 6 weeks lead time is needed for our scribes to prepare award scrolls). We are so excited about and proud of this glorious kingdom and the great works our populace is doing.

With Warmest regards
Gareth and Juliana, Rex and Regina Æthelmearc

Note: The Curia Regis of TRM Gareth and Juliana will take place on October 6 from 8:00-10:00 pm at We are the Escarbuncle – Celebration of Aethelmearc’s Twentieth Anniversary & Fall Crown Tournament.

Ansteorra Disaster Relief Information

Mistress Arianna of Wynthrope sends this message:

If you have been wondering how to help SCA members on the Texas Gulf Coast who’ve been affected by Hurricane Harvey, please read the announcement on the AEthelmearc Gazette from the Disaster Relief Coordinator of the Kingdom of Ansteorra.


At the request of Their Graces, Timothy and Gabrielle, I will be coordinating donations from AEthelmearc after the immediate crisis is past. However, for right now, your best response is to donate money or gift cards as explained in the article on the Gazette. If local groups wish to put donation jars at the troll tables of upcoming events, that would be great; however, such donations must be handled by individuals and should not go through SCA group accounts.

If any SCA groups wish to make a donation to the Ansteorran relief fund from SCA-related accounts, please contact Master Tofi <ae.exchequer@aethelmearc.org>, the Kingdom Exchequer, to learn how to do this and remain in compliance with SCA financial policies.

And a message from Mistress Antoinette de la Croix, Co-Sylvan Signet:

The Star Signet of Ansteorra has emailed me that they have received enough donations through the John Neal project, great news! Thank you to everyone who donated!
