Endewearde SCA Activities Sunday July 2 through Sunday July 9, 2017

Here are some changes to the usual Barony of Endewearde activities coming up this week and throughout the summer you may want to be aware of as you plan your family recreational time.

Medieval novice and experienced artisans meet on Sundays at the Bangor Housing Authority, 161 Davis Road in Bangor, Maine from 4:00-7:00 PM. Whether you are interested in learning about the wide variety of projects appropriate for the Middle Ages or are an experienced artisan, please feel free to join those gathering at the kitchen table just off the main gym floor or outside in fair weather.

Sunday, July 2: There will be a heavy list and rapier combat practice at the Bangor Housing Authority, 161 Davis Rd in Bangor, Maine as usual from 4:00-7:00 PM. Please note that Heavy List loaner gear will not be available; rapier combat loaner gear will be available as usual.
