The Pennsic War Archery Championships

The Pennsic War Archery Championships were held on the Archery range Tuesday August 6th. This year's shoots were themed after the Chinese Zodiac and were more than challenging for the best of archers. The morning's novelty roving range featured 9 stations, each of them was designed around a different animal sign of the zodiac. There were moving targets, targets that required special team strategies, timed shoots, and shoots that required the utmost accuracy. After completing the roving range, the teams broke for a light lunch.

My lunch with a Sin Eater

A friend of mine was having a bad day. He had been killed HARD three times and he was thinking about quitting. (He threw his armor and shield in a dumpster).

So, I took him up to the food court. Food, Talk, Relax –I started planning his SCAdian wake- when another guy came up and asked if he could join us. I did not know him, but I am always willing to make a friend.

“I am a Sin Eater, I can help”. He said.

Any diversion could help so quickly we gave it a try.

Whisky and Chocolate

A match made in Heaven “Thank you God”.

The first rule in buying whiskey: buy what you like.

Second, don’t buy cheap!

I once was so stupid - well more than once- I bought half of a $400 bottle “Bar cost” It was so peaty I couldn’t finish the dram.

Buy what you like; you have good taste, Drink Well!

Luckily, Chocolate has the same rule.

 You have good taste so do not be cheap; your friends will thank you.


With super strong “Peaty” Whiskey – Sharp Dark Chocolate.

Vikings were basically hunter-gathers. They raised crops and had live stock.

If the monks were sharing eggs, they had eggs. If the village was cooking a pig, Vikings had pork.

 Vikings had a simple diet

Elk, Deer, Seal, Walrus, Shark, Horsemeat, all kinds of fish, whatever game they could get.

Lute fisk- Dried cod is soaked in lye, then rinsed in clean water twice. I have had it at a couple of feasts (I said had it, not that I liked it).  It came out like fish jell-o and it still tasted like lye.
