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...)
Our Flagship event "The Funeral Games of John Barleycorn" will be held as is right in September. Details will be available here.
We will be hosting the second instance of A day in Florence (called a "Second day in Florence") on October 24th. The details are here.
Plans for other events are ongoing...
Our local commons meeting is usually 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 April 3rd at the Seneschal`s home at 8 Clark Place, Port Chester 10573 with the plans being a brief meeting with discussion of Lunacon (past and future), Barleycorn update, The new Facebook group, Officers thoughts and (of course) eating and socializing. We will also keep up the conversation on the future of Northpass. If you have questions about this gathering or need directions please call Wilhelm at 845 800 2407 (cell.)
We also plan on having a "social gathering" soon at the Seneschal`s home (same location of commons.) Details available soon.
Who are we?
