158 East Avenue
College of Three Ravens
As the gloom of winter threatens to keep adventurers, privateers, pirates, scholars, and all other gentles trapped within their homes, the Barony of Thescorre wishes to invite all to join us for College of Three Ravens on February 23rd, 2019. We will be returning for a second year to St. Paul’s Lutheran School, located at 158 East Avenue, Hilton, NY 14468. The site will open at 9am and will close for clean-up at 10pm. There is abundant parking off-street in the site’s parking lot. The entire site is handicap-accessible, and the event is located on the ground level.
With this year’s College of Three Ravens comes an invitation to journey into the Seafarer’s Academy and explore myths and legends of the seas all while attending classes, engaging in martial activities, feasting on delicious dishes, and engaging with one another. There is a wide range of learning opportunities that will occur throughout the day in a number of different classroom across the site. In addition to the various opportunities for scholarship, there is also a full-size gymnasium for Heavy Fighting & Fencing! Those wishing to volunteer their services as a marshal should seek out the marshals in charge.
Event registration includes a sideboard lunch prepared under the guidance of Baroness Katja Davidova Orlova Khazarina’s (Chris Adler-France). Evening feast will be prepared by Cairistiona Symon (Mina Steele).

First Course: Honey oat bread, flat bread, cheese, fruits, butters, green soup (spinach, fennel, parsley), and meatball soup

Pre-registration is greatly appreciated for meal planning and places at feast table can *only* be guaranteed if payment is received by 2/16/2019.
Fighting/Fencing: We will be allowing youth fighting and it is our hope that adult fighters will take time to offer guidance to the youth fighters present. Currently, there has been no fighters/fencers reaching out to teach martial classes in the gymnasium. If you would like to teach fighting or fencing classes at C3R, please contact the autocrat.
Bardic: We will be utilizing one of the small classrooms that was previously used for vigils as a bardic tavern of sorts. It will be a place where those working on their performing arts of all kinds will have a space to perform and get used to being in front of people. This is a way to help support the bardic performers of the Barony and of the Kingdom.
The bardic tavern will also be a place for people to display and have sampled their NON-ALCOHOLIC beverages. Bardic is being organized by Éadaoin Ruadh.
A&S Display: Per the coordinator, Torbjorn, we will be welcoming works in progress, especially as this is a college/place for learning. We will also have a display area for completed works (with or without documentation). There will be no set theme so bring whatever you’re working on!
