Current modes of service:

At this time I seem to be only able to make prizes for events, volunteer while I am there and try to arrange some time to teach a few classes on wood working , box making mostly.


Overall SCA goals :

-further persona development 1001 male Norse from Iceland

-improve archery skills

-learn new things

-have fun

Protégé specific :

-I am not sure what my specific protégé goals are; I think more volunteering and helping others. I do know that the Island and more specifically the northern part of this Island is very under represented in the peer department. There are a lot of good people up here that I think need to be recognized for their effort and contribution. I need to make an effort in some way to help them to be recognized and move forward so that they, in turn, can grow and blossom.

A&S Type Stuff :

- armour, sword hilt for HL Dori , shields, puncture proof tunic for new rapier fighters, garb for newbies, wooden boxes for people leaving our shire (Zoe, Calabrad, Elizabeth, Marina, Reann, Desamona,...? ), things for prizes, inkle looms for others to teach ithra classes, take-down bed for HL Desamona, warp-weight loom for Mistress Gudrun, wooden boxes for shire prizes, fabricated hurricane tent pegs for HL Halima,
