Thanks for a great 2017 event season!


Now that we are full-on into fall, I thought it would be fun to recap some of the great moments from this last summer!

Egils 2017 – we had a fantasy feast and games (Drunken Goat Tavern) where we tried an experiment with gold coins that could be used for games, prizes, food and drink. Congratulations to our prize winner Aden, who was a sneaky ninja and stole everyone’s gold. We also had a skit-based Inquisition that totally lacked in puppets (will do better next year!). Overall, it was a fun event with a large attendance. Congratulations to Fisher who got too old to be a Minion and graduated to a Pilgrim, after drinking from the Minuglymug, and Connor for joining the ranks of the Minions. And Congratulations to Esther and Frank who became Disciples (‘more cowbell’ skit by Frank and Fisher was great!).

Stormgods 2017 – The household’s new favorite event was once again a blast! Our Feast of Saint Randy was promoted with the site and nearly everyone was there. It was a great Friday-night party. Saturday we played many MANY games, there was some heavy fighting, and NO ONE GOT SO DRUNK THEY BECAME THE NEXT DUKE OF HURL. Good going Daos! Also at this event Eleanor graduated from Minion to Pilgrim.

Bunghole 2017 – Our private household event was once again a blast! Thank you Sarah for organizing the fun and games. My favorite was XTREME XTREME bocce ball with added difficulty: POISON OAK (thankfully no one got it).

Autumn War 2017 – This event saw our newest fighters (William and Rhys) in armor and on the field where they did a very nice job of storming the castle. Unfortunately Rhys is our newest Marquis of Misfortune due to chink in his armor that lead to a broken collarbone. But like a true Viking Warrior, Rhys is already thinking of the wars he will fight in next year! At this event we also had a lovely feast thanks to Red Molly the Black!

Many Daos have attended events and functions outside of our ‘official’ ones and some more congratulations are in order:

  • Prophet Michael got an award from their majesties for wearing fancy garb
  • Eden the Mad got ANOTHER AoA (one for each registered SCA name!)
  • Scott got his AoA this year!
  • Anton won the Adiantum championship AND he got his AoA!
  • Connor won Youth Defender of Aquaterra!


Nice work everyone and Congratulations!

-Eden the Mad, Grand Inquisitor of Daos 2107-2018
