IMPORTANT NOTICE – Venue change TBA – Petersham Town Hall closed for ten weeks from Jan 20th

From the Seneschal:

 

Marrickville council have just called me.
Petersham Town Hall will be closed for ten weeks from Jan 20th, for repairs to the structure of the hall.

Unfortunately, Marrickville Town Hall is *not* going to be available to us as an alternative.

They are still sorting out what options may be available to us – perhaps a combination of St Peters and Herb Greedy Hall. Or we may need to go back to doing fighting at Camperdown park.

This has not yet been decided, but I will let you know when it happens.

Fighter prac will continue – and will return to Petersham after the ten weeks.

Full Tournament and Garb (costume) night (26 Nov 2013)

To the Populace of the Barony of Rowany
From Duke Alfar of Attica

Greetings,

I’m thinking its time for a tourney in the Barony. This tourney is open to all fighters who have not competed in a Coronet/ Crown tournament. There will be a prize for the victor and prizes given by the ladies of the Barony. We have a lot of fighters in the barony and its time we started to sharpen our competitive edge.

The venue will be Petersham Town Hall (see the Addresses & Maps page for details) on the 26th November, which is a Tuesday night. Inspection starts at 7.30pm and tourney starts at 8pm. Finish time is 10pm.

For this event, this is a garb (costume) night.

(The tournament will be in place of regular Tuesday night A&S and combat practice)

I would like to extend this invitation to the people below in particular. Some of whom have fought in a tournament and some not. Of course, this is open to all fighters who meet the above criteria:

Now more singing, dancing and other non-combat activities from 6pm Tuesdays at Petersham Town Hall

There is a regular fighter practice each Tuesday evening at Petersham Town Hall, yes, check, we knew about that :)

What you may not be aware of is…

We’ve extended the hire time for the Petersham Town Hall on Tuesdays! We now hire the hall from 6pm (instead of 7pm) and are using the earlier availability to focus more on humanity type activities.

Non-combat related events on Tue are growing, with more regular singing, dancing and various other activities happening FROM 6PM ON.

So, before the more voluminous physical conversations happen (yes, I mean combat practice), the more artistic and gentle arts are now getting together more frequently and in less noise distracted fashion, earlier on Tuesdays (they do also happen elsewhere, we just wish to make you aware of an earlier opening time at Petersham Town Hall on Tuesdays).

So, the hall is now being used more regularly for singing, dancing and other arts from 6pm till 7.30ish. At that point there is definitely more making of noise from combat, but even then, other areas of the hall are available for use (and being used as such) for non-combat focussed SCA activity.

Tuesday A&S + Fighter Practice Moved Till After Easter To…

Hi all,

As you may have heard, due to a mixup in the bookings (done a year ago),
we do not have the usual hall booked for Tuesdays during March - before
festival.

Fighter Practice will be happening at the park on Australia St,
Camperdown at roughly the same time (6pm-late) for the next three weeks. 

A&S will be happening at St Peters Town Hall in Sydenham on Tuesday
nights.

Yes, we'll be in two different places and you will be forced to choose.
I'm really sorry about that, but it will just be for the weeks prior to
festival.

After festival, we will go back to being at our usual hall (Crystal St,
Petersham) on Tuesdays.

Cheers,
