The Feast of Sir John Barleycorn - The Ransoming of John Barleycorn

Youth combat


One of the places Barleycorn will shine again is with youth combat. The youth of the SCA are welcome and encouraged to fight with sword and shield for king and glory. We have offered this for several years but this year we wish to kick it up a notch.

Previously there was one list available for this but this year we will offer three.

Previously we tried a torchlight tourney. This year it WILL happen.

Most importantly this will be the first year we will offer an activity "Knights at night at Barleycorn". In honor of our patron, Sir John Barleycorn, we have asked several of the Knights of the East to spend some dedicated training time with the youngest of our brave warriors.

We already have 3 marshals booked for this and hope for more. This will be an amazing collection of ferocity and chivalry to see.
