The Shire of Port Oasis of the Kingdom of AEthelmearc of the Society of Anachronism (SCA) is hosting Sicilian’s Revenge Palio di Sicily next Friday September 9th to Sunday September 11th at Camp Mad Anthony Wayne Lodge in Huntington.
The Shire of Port Oasis is excited to host the games of the Palio di Sicily. The rival Contrade of Port Oasis are each out to prove their superiority. In order to prevent these rivalries from becoming outright warfare we have, in the fashion of the Italians, declared a Palio Event comprising of several challenges from which a winning Contrada shall be determined and be awarded the Palio prize. Come horse around with us, join in the games and delightful festivities that shall ensue. But beware! The Sicilian is still out for revenge, so keep a close eye on your horses!
Palio activities include armored combat scenarios include “mounted” combat, a modified bearpit tournament, and flotilla battles; two archery competition, fencing with a torchlight tourney on Friday, children’s activities, card games, bardic circle, assassination games, prize for best Italian garb, and more.
Everyone is invited to display their Arts & Science projects for competition on Saturday from 10am to 2:30pm, no documentation required. The winners will be determined by popular vote. There will also be drawing materials for people to try and learn about renaissance drawing methods, materials, and techniques.
There will be a lunch buffet on Saturday and an evening feast for fifty. There will also be merchants set up selling wares.
