7th September 2024

Clara, County Offaly

Are your fingers raw and bleeding from making garb? Are you scorched from cooking? Blinded from pouring over parchments? Are the cares of fighting for the kingdom weighing heavily on you? Are the politics giving you a severe dose of ennui. If so, it is time for some frivolity, whimsy and fun.

Lean into the Creative of SCA and come and join us in Eplaheimr for the Baroness' Tropical Bash on the 7th September - a Tropical themed knees up, with friendly competitions and much silliness to see who will be crowned the king and queen of whimsey.

Booking closes Noon Wednesday 4th September


The competition will allow all participants to enter into all of the following events, (in a spirit of fun and light-heartedness):

  • Archery shoot of the Pineapple
  • Coconut shy
  • Poi twirling
  • Best Hula hoop dancer
  • Make and wear the flower crown (materials supplied)
  • Come dressed in your best tropical adaptation of existing garb - including headwear
  • Tropical-themed cocktail - bring a cocktail of your own invention (alcohol/non)
  • There will be missions for freelance assassins at this event.

Points will be given for participation, for winner and for the most entertaining entry.
