November 16-18 Bjodann eda Bjodannskona Vitja Bjarnarstrond, Barrow (Utqiagvik) AK.
I do know officially at this moment our Highnesses will both be in attendance as well as our Baron. No worries, Wee Duncan and I will make sure you understand how all that works.
I will keep you all updated once I learn more of who will be in attendance.
Having said that I need a bed count. Who has sleep spaces they are willing to share and how many. You may reply here or simply just messenger me. I will probably ask this question again in case air mattresses etc need to be procured.
This event will also be the perfect time to ask questions, especially if you are working on a project and find yourself stumped or stuck. I will post next what our notice will look like while it floats around the SCA avenues that it must be officially presented in...

December 29 Happy Jól (Yule)!
Winter Solstice – the time of year when the days get longer and the sun begins to return. This is truly a cause for celebration in Winter’s Gate! Join us as we gather together and celebrate the Norse traditions of feasting, celebrating, and reveling in each other’s company during this yule season. While we may not be burning a sun-wheel to entice the sun to return or sacrificing a wild boar to appease Frey in hopes of fertile farmland, we will be enjoying some other ancient traditions while we eat and drink our fill. Updates on this wonderful, fun-filled event will be posted on the Yahoo Group email as well as on the Book of Face.
