“Yes, you heard correctly, a Spring Ball with the Duck and
Drake Tavern within the Barony of Seagirt.

Costumes, you ask, It is encouraged of course, but we understand
not all will have them, so come as you are, and join in the fun as
we are welcoming newcomers to our event !

Starting at 1pm, there will be a number of experienced costumers
and Officers of the branch who will make themselves available to
answer questions and work with people.  We will also have an
informal introduction to the SCA, should any brand new people
attend.  If you are new, you need not bring anything specific
with you.  However, you can bring fabric with you, which we
can discuss with you and work out possible costume patterns and
idea.  If you are not quite at that stage yet, we will also
have books and pictures that you can look at and choose what you
would like your first costume to be like.  Weather permitting,
there may also be combat practice across the street in Rudd Park as
well.
