Torlyon Winter Fest, June, 2007
When in Canberra for a wedding, we travelled to Torlyon (our first visit , if you dont count Festival) for the Winter Feast, to farewell  Baldwin the Wanderer who is moving to the Crescent Isles (NZ). We travelled with Belinda and her husband and Mistress Marit. The Baron and Baroness of Politarchopolis was in attendance.


Above are some of the feast revellers...

This year's Collegium was again held at The Paddocks. The two day event hosted classes on sewing, tentmaking, Dark Ages, Florentine Renaissance, Cooking, Brewing, Rapier, Armour  and more! For those who would like a copy of (most) of the notes on CD (with money raised going to A&S in Innilgard), please contact me.

First Mate's Tourney. 1st September, 2007.

This is a annual auction rapier tourney that is held to find the First Mate of the GARDIAN. This year we had 5 fighters vying for the honour.
There was a good turnout of spectators to watch the folly... I mean fighting! Thank you to all those who braved the beautiful mild weather and glorious sunshine.
There was some good rapier fighting, both showing youth and speed win out ... but also that age and cunning can too. There were a few Baronial whims... you had to be there! Thanks to all the gentles who donated prizes for the auction tourney. Vicontessa Lucrezia Lorenz, Lady Lia Morosini, Lady Fionndhair and some of our household members also...This year's First Mate is Lord Gregory Tortouse de Sloleye.(though Lord Aldwin was highly commended for his loyalty to the ship and his quick despatch of 'those scurvy dogs'.) The fighters learnt about the difference of fighting on a docked ship and a ship that has set sail...
and then there were those fighters who got into the 'rum' and got 'blind drunk'.... There was an A&S competition run, being that of 'Pirates booty!".
the winner was a pair of pewter coronets made by Sveinn inn Kyrri. More Pics can be found at:  http://www.sca.org.au/innilgard/gallery/events
Captain Kat.
The 'eric' was in the shape of a ship, with a set of boxes to make a 'safe' cabin in case of accidents (the ship did almost sink once when the cabin was destoyed) Vicontessa Lucrezia ran the auction for me, as I was feeling unwell still. Morgan had fun playing.
Lord William and Lord Dafydd 'face off' for the honour Captain Kat (recovering from fever) Ship's Master, Dafydd... the grimacing...

Morgan thinks this is the best part of the picnic...
except for the traditional kite flying...
