Our first Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan demo is in two weeks! Sunday, July 8 and Sunday, July 15, we will be showing off the splendour of our Barony at the SoS Medieval Feasts. This is a lucrative and delightful annual demo, and I’m looking for participants! We need fighters, both armoured and rapier. Marshals for both disciplines are also needed. And we need lots of people to come in garb to add to the atmosphere and be ambassadors of the SCA. A table will be available for an A&S display, so bring out your creations to show off!

A Word from There Excellencies As announced at our business meeting last night we will be limiting our champions to Residents of Myrgan Wood and/or recipients of Blood of the Wood. While we understand that this will disappoint some, people we felt it was best for the Barony in this transitional year. We welcome all to come and test the mettle of our potential champions at our 3 events this year. Skald the Hall: March 3rd where we will Choose the second Bardic Champion and Premiere youth Champion of Myrgan Wood. Spring Champions, May 13th where Arts and Sciences and Rapier Champions are chosen. Anniversary, Thanksgiving weekend, where we choose our Armored and Missiles Champion. Thank you all, Fjall and Isabelle
See the "Spring Champions" webpage that explains more about what took place at this event, focussed on finding our new arts and science and rapier champions.
There is one more "local" events scheduled for 2018.
The Barony of Myrgan Wood had three demonstrations in fall 2016.
The most recent demonstration was in Saskatoon at the Saskatoon Comic Expo where we had a Medieval Village.
Please email the Chatelaine if you would like to discuss booking a demonstration at an upcoming medieval event.
