About the Barony of Dragon's Laire
The Barony of Dragon's Laire is composed of Kitsap County and Northern Mason
County in Washington State, USA. It is well known in the local community for our annual
June Faire which
open to the public. June Faire was once called Medieval Faire, the public may know it by that name still.
The members of our Barony come from a wide variety of backgrounds, interests and ages. However, we all share an interest in the
histories and cultures of the Middle Ages and pursue that interest through the study of combat techniques, arts and crafts, social
structures and dress of the period. This study starts and continues in the library or on-line but can quickly move to the forge,
needle and tourney field for a real hands-on approach.
The Barony of Dragon's Laire is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Inc.
It is part of the Kingdom of An Tir
(Northwest U.S. and parts of Western Canada.) The SCA is a not-for-profit educational organization that studies the
history and culture of the Middle Ages by recreating it. The SCA has branches all over the USA and Canada, as well as
many parts of Europe, Australia, and Asia. To locate a branch near you check
the SCA Web site.
Newcomers to the Barony, Meet our Chatelaine!
The Chatelaine (or Chatelain if the person is male) is in charge of welcoming newcomers to the Barony. She
also organizes and oversees our small demonstrations (at schools and the like) and helps organize activities
to make newcomers feel welcome and invited. The Chatelaine is a very important office for the Barony, and
whoever holds the office works very hard indeed. Our current Chatelaine is THL Jess Dunn of the Roving Irishmen. You
can reach her via email (see address in the sidebar) and at most events and fighter practices and socials.
I'm happy to announce that January brought several new faces to our
populace. Joey and his family have relocated from the East and are eager to
get into archery. Plain Clover has joined us from Alaska where she has
played quite a bit. We also have a lovely lady whose name escapes me from
BAO who now resides in Poulsbo and has enjoyed the company of our populace.
The rapier community has welcomed Jill and her friend. Please take a moment
to introduce yourselves to these new faces and show them how friendly and
welcoming our Barony is.
Are you interested in becoming our next Chatelaine? Let me know. My two
years were up last summer and I'm looking for a deputy who can shadow me
through the summer and step up as our new Chatelaine in the fall.
THL Jess, Chatelaine
