|We typically have a few gatherings throughout the month.
|One of our gatherings is our shire business meeting, which we call a
moot. We go over the planning of our events, current projects we may be working on,
and engage in discussion about anything and everything related to our local group.
Our moots are held on a Sunday at the home of one of the members, starting at 6:00-6:30 pm
with a potluck meal and usually ending a couple of hours later. Moots are not held in
Our moots are a great opportunity for any interested
parties to chat with shire members, and to ask any questions they have concerning the SCA.
Our meeting are informal, and we welcome all visitors with open arms and a glass of wine,
a pint of beer or something a little lighter.
If you would like to attend our next shire moot, drop an e-mail to our
Seneschal or the Chatelain and they will help.
|The Vanished Wood Sewing Guild meets every two weeks to
work on sewing projects, socialize and help each.

this is a good opportununity to witness the fighters of Ayreton in action. You will find

safety measures that are in place.
