Easter 2009, some Company of the Staple members went to the SCA Rowany Festival. We enjoyed a lot of educational workshops, especially from House Abbotsford’s C15th encampment. We also spent many happy hours shopping, especially at the likes of Flaming Gargoyle Pottery, Asa and Contarina’s Small Luxuries and Mainly Medieval.
While we were there, Hugh entered the Combat of the Thirty re-enactment, with Jon and Elden as his small but fearsome retinue. The combat was a great spectacle of chivalry and pageantry, and many French belligerants got a chance to enjoy our hospitality while we waited for their ransoms to be paid in full.
