THL Mateusz, former DL Arts and Sciences Champion, underwent heart bypass surgery at the end of April. We all wish him well and hope he recovers quickly. We'll miss you while you recover!
The date is tentatively set for 18th June, at the regular Tuesday FP. A potluck is planned. We hope to offer classes on topics for newcomers (Basic Garb, Basic Heavy, Basic Rapier, Basic A&S, etc). If you want to help plan this, please contact the Baronial Chatelain, Lord Albrecht Van Beeke.
At Kingdom Arts and Sciences Dragon's Laire was well represented. Master Arion the Wanderer, OL, Baroness Laurellen de Brandevin, Lord Alberto Martini and Lady Ela y Ynis Dewi were among the denizens of Dragon's Laire who entered to compete in either the single entry category or for the overall Championship at Kingdom level. Other members of the Barony participated as judges and cheer-leaders at the event. Master Arion was runner-up in the overall Arts and Sciences Competition!
Later on in the month the Barony held is semi-annual Arts and Sciences Day Camp. It was very successful, with several classes given. Arcos Loric taught a TAM class, Mrq. Laurellen did a class on the fundamentals of late period/flemish clothing, Dame Madrun taught beginning tablet weaving and THL Rycheza taught a wonderful class on period cooking, research and persona development, Lord Diomedes taught chess. THL Kassandra had a nice display of lace to show, Master Cedric demonstrated wire weaving and the scribal community had an active group working hard on scrolls. Work on Gold Key supplies happened, and Lady Diana of Kent delivered largesse.
We hold a weekly Baronial Fighter Practice, Social and get together every Tuesday night at the VFW Hall on Central Valley in Bremerton, WA from 6pm-8pm. All are welcome! See the Map for the location.
For those interested in the Arts & Science (A&S) side of the SCA classes are held at the Baronial Social (generally each Tuesday of the Month) at the VFW Hall on Central Valley in Bremerton, WA -  from 6pm-8pm. Please consult the Events Calendar for more information.
Our practices and classes at practice are open to anyone interested and do not require medieval dress. Our events are also open to anyone but do require medieval dress. Loaner clothing can be arranged for our local events through Gold Key for those who do not have any yet, but it is best to ask in advance because our supply is limited.

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 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. Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds, interests and ages. We share an interest in the history and culture 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 in the library and moves quickly to the forge, needle and tourney field for a real hands-on approach. This website provides a glimpse into our world and resources for our members.
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.
