Welcome to the Canton of Northpass!
This is the "official" site of the Westchester, Putnam (and as some say the Bronx) chapter of the SCA known to all as the Canton of Northpass that is of the Crown Provence of Østgarðr which in turn is within the East Kingdom of the SCA. (The exact southern border of our land is currently under some debate though...)
There are numerous activities, practices, events and gatherings. For a complete list of the local and a few nearby ones.
Our flagship event "The Funeral Games of John Barleycorn" will be held as is right September 5th to 7th. Details will be available here.
We will be hosting the second occurrence of A day in Florence (called a "Second day in Florence") on October 24th. The details are here.
Plans for other events are ongoing... Please see the facebook group, the yahoo group or the links for local events or local practices for more information. As a sampling we offer Archery, Dance, (soon to be) armored fighting, brewing, and more...
Our local commons meeting is (usually but not this time) held on the first Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm. The details of where we meet vary. The next meeting will be on Thursday July 10th at Mohegan lake (for Directions) with the plans being a brief meeting with discussion of Barleycorn and upcoming activities /practices /socials and another otential new event. There is also a vote to be taken on a new officer position! We have a lot of fun stuff with a very full near term calendar! We will have (of course) Officers thoughts and (of course) eating and socializing. We will also keep up the conversation on the future of Northpass as we grow. If you have questions about this gathering or need directions please call Wilhelm at 845 800 2407 (cell.)
