Tournament Information

Silent Basket Auction: Take part in this Stromgard Tradition! Fill a basket for others to bid on, bid on a basket, win a basket! Households & groups of friends can create a basket together. No spare basket? Bring a donation anyway – if it can be basketized on site, it shall be.
The theme for this year is “Welcome Friend.” What would you bring to a friend to welcome them into the SCA? How creative can you get? What would you like to purge from your SCA Stash for a good cause?
1. Baskets/donations are set out on the Basket Auction Tables for people to view. Cards denoting minimum bid prices, if any, or approximate value, and description of items are placed near each basket/donation, with blank lines wherein people can write their bids.
2. As the day goes on, others may outbid. Bidding ends at 4, whence bids are collected.
3. Winning bids are announced at court or during the feast (according to needs & time constraints of Coronet & Event Steward on day of event – TBA).
4. Winners pay for their prize, collect it, and take it home.
(See Helvi, shepherdess of the auction tables).

ATTENTION CRAFTERS: Begin those largesse projects now to compete in the largesse derby coming up February 23 at Stromgard’s FOUNDING REVEL! The winner gets to choose a prize! Make a dozen pieces of largesse, matching or in a theme, bring them to the event and the populace will vote on the items they like best. 

ATTENTION FIGHTERS: Come on out and compete in a fun mini tournament complete with fun novelty prizes for both rapier and heavy. 

Rapier – Poker tourney 5 card hand Everyone gets 5 cards to start Round Robin (fight everyone at least one depending on numbers) If you lose winner picks a card and decided if it makes their hand better or doesnt need it and gives it back to the opponent. Or the winner can choose to draw from the deck and discard one. Winner has the best poker hand. Loser gets a rock and a story. 

ATTENTION THRILL SEEKERS: Ivon and Hlutwige, Lord and Lady Stromgard herewith invite all to vie for the honour of being named StormMaker, Champion of the Arts and Sciences of the Barony of Stromgard at Founding Revel, February 23 (2019) in the Barony of Stromgard. Our current StormMaker Anneke will be defending her title. Those wishing to compete for this title must inform Their Excellencies via electronic communique no later than February 10 (2019) and be prepared to present a Letter of Intent at morning court at the event.

Each competitor is required to research, document and present two (2) complete and distinct entries plus an entry to be created on site the day of the tournament (see “Mystery Box” below).

Competitors are required to make a fire using flint and steel or other period technique as well as use the fire in some way in their third entry. Each competitor is allowed a small outdoor space for a “camp” within which they may present the first two entries and prepare the third. Competitors will need a fire pit in which to build fire. Various tinder, wood and charcoal will be provided.

Now, to the matter of the third entry;
Competitors may have one person who will serve as adviser/assistant/helper. Please inform us as to who will be serving as such in your Letter of Intent. Each competitor will be given a “Mystery Box” filled with various items (all Mystery Boxes will have like contents). The competitor and their adviser will have 10 minutes to work out a plan for the entry based on the contents of the Mystery Box. There will be several areas of the arts and sciences to choose from. Once competitors have made a plan of attack, they and their advisers will visit the “sideboard” for 10 minutes. Competitors and their adviser may trade item for item from the Mystery Box to the sideboard for needed/wanted items. Competitors may also choose to trade item for item with each other. An attempt at more than one finished item is encouraged. It is worth noting that the competitor should be the main source of ideas and execution of the entry(s). Please bear in mind that the creation of the entry(s) must be at the direction of the competitor.

Time is up! Competitors and their advisers will have three hours to create the third entry using the items in the Mystery Box and the fire the competitor must build.
If you feel you have what it takes to be Stromgard’s Champion, to be the StormMaker, wear the cloak, display your work, prove your skill; then send your intent to:

Ivon Baron Stromgard (Gerald Edward Barber (
Hlutwige Baroness Stromgard (Lois Hale
StormMaker Anneke (Jessica Hagan
