"O Januarie, what myghte thee devinaille
To them who to Oertha on shippes saille?
What delices and mirth dust you see
At Oerthes corounet feste and reveli?"
It gives me great pleasure to announce Winter Coronet 2017! We have a lot of things in the works, and we as in the Event crew have set our bar very high. In keeping with Their Highnesses' Theme, "A Known World Pilgrimage", we, the Event Staff, wish to embrace and let you all embark on that adventure to discover the next Heirs of Oertha!
This weekend's Coronet has the theme of late 14th Century Middle England. Start your calendar and plan your pilgrimage to Winter Coronet, please visit www.coronetofoertha.com to reserve cabins and feast tickets.
We have taken great time and commitment in presenting theme decorated Halls, Cabins, and Tourney Grounds to reflect in an Anachronistic interpretation of what a pilgrimage of people from vast lands and cultures of the Known World and who would come and seek the heirs of these great lands.
Inspiration comes from the Canterbury Tales of Geoffrey Chaucer. What Chaucer was great at was relaying what life was like for the "common man". This does not mean that we do not get to don the bling, coronets, medallions, or fancy dress. However, we are making an attempt to bring people from all societal walks of the known world (modern as well as period) into one unified voice and goal: to celebrate together this dream that we live within the Society for Creative Anachronism.
To further this dream, we ask that all those who participate in the feasts and revels for this weekend to make an attempt to cover the 14th century throughout the SCA time frame of the Known World. This means you can dress from English, Italian, Spanish, Middle Eastern, etc. etc. However, if one is unable to, due to whatever circumstances, please just come as you are, as all are welcome to the Great Pilgrimage of the Oerthan Winter Coronet.
