Quintavia is doing a fairly large Demo but we are having trouble filling some slots and I'm hoping to find some outside help from friends in Carolingia.

We need marshalls - fencing, heavy list, and youth combat.
We need combatants
Drummers (We have Belly Dancers but no one to drum)

Details below:

Come to the demo

The Shire of Quintavia has been asked to participate in a demo in the town common of West Boylston on Saturday, June 9th. The demo is called Scouts on the Common. This is an all day demo so gentles may come and go at their leisure if we have enough volunteers to do so. You may come all day, half a day, or one hour if that is your desire. We need fighters, fencers, artisans, fair ladies and a couple of sun shelters and/or pavilions. Tis but a dream but dancers, jesters, those who are hams and can speak forsoothly to the crowd gathered there are more than welcomed. Do you know some Scadian in distant lands who can join us? They are welcomed as well. We will need folks to set up and help dismantle our area. We also need a sound system or live musicians. I expect that with the popularity of The Tudors television program, we will get a little more than the usual amount of interest in us. Please email me at your earliest convenience so that I can start a list of who will be there and what they will do when they arrive.

Who else will be there?
The event will be open to the general public. So far in addition to the Society, they will have a frontiersman camp, the Worcester Kiltie Pipe Band, a Revolutionary Fife & Drum Corps, the NEADS Canines for Vets, MassWildlife and Dept. of Conservation & Recreation, the National Wild Turkey Federation as various display stations; Possibly a Civil War reenactor unit with a small camp, Pirate reenactors, and Native American presentation. New Citizen Naturalization Ceremony with Congressman McGovern's office as highlight of the day to have the scouts host and welcome first-hand America's newest citizens. There will be a "fill the tent" canned food drive for the West Boylston Food Pantry, and a US Troop Care Package collection drive as well. They are also trying to set up a charity road race around 9:00 am to start the day before the "official" event starts. And of course there will be ongoing games and activities for kids.

It has come to our attention that the Pikestaff inadvertently contained an announcement for the Quintavian Hafla for the wrong date! The Hafla is Sunday, January 21st.

Please see the Event announcement for details.

Please feel free to pass this information along to any email lists or other sites.

Thank you!

Bardic Bar-Room Brawl Tavern
April 21st 10am – 9pm
The First Parish of Bolton
673 Main Street | Bolton, MA 01740

Come to picturesque Quintavia for a Spring Day of bards, dancing, fencing, thrown weapons, feasting and fun!

Bards come sing a song or tell a tale we will have a day of sharing and practice for the evenings festivities. Dancers come and twirl around the beautiful tavern fair. Those who prefer to throw things, like axes and the like will have space outside for thrown weapons competition. Also plenty of room for gaming! Bring your favorite period games and teach us how to play! There will also be a ‘surf’ auction where you can bid to have your own personal servant for the feast in the evening.

Fencers help fight off the evil pirates who invade this fair tavern and protect the populace from harm! Bandits will be robbing the Tavern and Bandits as we all know are an ill bred, shifty and the Law Abiding upright citizens are honorable. This being said ONLY those shifty eye bandits are allowed Death From Behind. So we should all have some fun with this scenario. We’ll throw in some variations as well. As always, assistance from visiting marshals for authorizations, inspections would be greatly appreciated. For details on the fencing contact:

There will be a Tavern-style day board and feast in the evening prepared by Mistress Eleanor LeBrun and Lady Allura McKeoch. Please contact with any menu questions you may have. (This site is Bone DRY!) Feast is limited to 80 persons so get your reservations in by April 1st to guarantee your space)

• Adult Feast Fee: $10 pre registration only
• Children 11 – 17 Day only: $3
