Arts & Sciences Activity of the Week:


CHILI Cook Off, coordinated by Duncan Fearmac

  • Amba - Large Pot of Family Friendly Chili
  • Amba - Smaller Pot of HOT Chili

Chili Cook Off Details:

Food should arrive by 7pm and should come with a way to stay hot. If you need to borrow a crockpot, speak up and we're sure that one can be arranged. $5 to enter (same as any other site dinner) OR $5 to eat

Three categories: Family Friendly, HOT, and "that's tasty but it's not chili". You can enter as many or as few categories as you want (only one fee. Everyone pays their $5)

Judges are welcome--you get to taste everything.

Please provide a detailed ingredients list, a way to keep your food hot, and a serving spoon. Extension cords are also encouraged.

Side items and deserts are needed from those who prefer not to cook chili. What is Site Dinner? This is a dinner we hold the first Thursday of every month at the weekly Baronial meeting. It raises money to help pay for our meeting site, and has proven to be an anticipated social evening as well. Every month a different set of volunteers supplies a delicious home-cooked meal. We sell those meals for donations of $5 (or less as suits your budget. We're flexible.) We're also willing to just sell a dessert or a side dish if that's all you want.

The Barony holds weekly populace meetings every Wednesday. Weekly meetings are open to the public. Feel free to just show up if you want to learn more about the Society for Creative Anachronism. About 50 to 100 people attend weekly meetings, so if you are new, be sure and speak up. We might miss you in the crowd. Fighter Practice and Dance Practice are usually held in conjunction with weekly meetings. Feel free to join in, or at least ask lots of questions. You will see people wearing medieval clothes, or what we call garb. It is not necessary to wear garb to attend weekly meetings, but if you would like to borrow some, just ask. We usually wear garb to promote a more medieval atmosphere, but we were all new once too, and we all borrowed clothing and other accoutrements from near total strangers to get started. So don't be shy- come to meeting!

Business meeting for the Baronial populace, all welcome. Open to the public. Includes fighting, dance practice, and classes.
