Who’s up for some fun?
The Snowflake Festival in Kingston, NY takes place on Friday 2 December from 6 until 8.
We can use people to:
– set up at 5 PM
– run the Catapult Game/talk about life in a castle
– help with sachets
– do names in calligraphy
– talk about the SCA to people, take contact info/give out cards
– demonstrate a skill, display things of interest
– clean up at 8 PM
Perks will include cider and cookies, live music and the festival in general.
If you can help, please contact me not later than Monday 28 November, by email email@example.com or via IM Blaze O’Rama on Face Book.
Due to turkey wrassling and other pre-Thanksgiving activities involving pies, cranberries and other delicious things which take time to prepare, there will be no A & S on the 23rd of November.
We wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving, and we give thanks for having such a fun and amazing group in our shire.

Was chatting with Blaze O’Rama today and we got to chatting about the possibility of an EQ type event. Given what I do for a living (Lucky Star Horsemanship) I have a couple of site options that we could get on a low budget. One is Lucky Star Stables located in Clinton Corners, NY. (Similar name but not affiliated) and the other is Hidden Hollow Farm in Milan, NY.
If anyone wants to come tour either location get an introduction to the owners/managers please let me know here, via a PM, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text at 518-303-2504. .
Saturday October 22, 2022 I’ll be doing some training with our horses at Hidden Hollow Farm in Milan, NY. Will be there from 8:00-11:00 and then back later in the afternoon.
We will be leading a Horsemanship Clinic at the L.S. Stables location in Clinton Corners, NY on Sunday, October 23, 2022 at 10:00 am.
Both sites allow for a variety of event formats. My suggestion is to run a “Symposium” style event with classes and experiences for everyone. I’ve run a few of these in the past, plus mundane horse focused events like Equus Fest East and am very willing to help put.
