Blackstone Raid 2017

Aethelmearc blackstone life living history reenactment SCA show shows

We're back from Backstone Raid and we had a wonderful time!

Aside from manning the booth, we participated in much socializing and mead drinking, which is something we haven't done in a very long time. Brian cut a gemstone after one of the stones in the Cheapside Hoard, and entered it into the Arts & Sciences Competition. He won Queen's Choice and Baroness's Choice! Our friend Anthony (AKA Albrecht) won an Onyx award for his service to the barony in general, Chatelaine duties and his tireless efforts to help things run smoothly for everyone he ran across.

There was also a nasty storm that we thankfully survived with no problems, but several tents were flattened, incliding some fellow merchants. Lukcily there was lots of help on hand to help with immediate damage control and packing the next day. Brian also got to play some music in court, which is something he's been wanting to do for a long time.

I also took a bunch of pictures, so here they are!
