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 lunch dayboard, prepared under the guidance of Baroness Katja Davidova Orlova Khazarina’s (Chris Adler-France). Evening feast will be prepared by Cairistiona Symon (Mina Steele).

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.

Bardic: Three Ravens Tavern!!
For all those wishing to participate in or listen to bardic activities, please join us from 11 am – 4 pm (for as little or as much time as you want) in the Three Ravens Tavern. Format will be open participation–no particular order or sign up sheet. Anyone is welcome to come and listen, to work on projects quietly, to get up and perform–no pressure, no requirements, no competition. There will be a few courtesy rules posted at site to keep it fun for everyone, including warning us ahead of time if the piece may not be appropriate for little ears (just so they can exit the room for a time). It’ll be on the map and in the program so you may find its location.
Because it is a tavern:
1) there’ll be atmosphere! LED candles, small themed figurines, lanterns and candle holders will be present. If you wish to add to it with your own, including banners or pennants for the walls, we invite you to bring them. Please bring your own banner stands, or putty if you want to hang them.
2) people may get thirsty or hungry! Please feel free to bring NON-ALCOHOLIC drinks or snacks to share. It’s certainly not required that the snack be tavern themed, but you’re more than welcome to do so! We’ll have a table set aside for refreshment, and cards for ingredient lists will be provided if you do not bring your own. Please do bring your own eating surfaces and drinking vessels if you wish to partake.
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!
