Where to find the Pocket Bard at Pennsic 45

So, you want to hang out with the Pocket Bard at Pennsic, huh? To do that, you’ll need to know where to find me. I’m camped with McGuire’s Marauders (N06), but oftentimes I’m not there. Pretty much the only time you can come by camp and be mostly-assured of seeing me is at breakfast. The rest of the day I tend to wander.

But what if you really want to find me? Here are some places I will definitely be, because I’ve made a commitment to be there:

Peace Week:

  • Tuesday, 3:00-4:30, AS 1: Teaching “Sexy, Silly, Scheming Saints”
  • Thursday, 12:00-1:00, AS 7: Teaching “Your Persona in an Hour”
  • Thursday, o’dark to late, McGuire’s Marauders (N06): Co-hosting “Maraude at Home” bardic circle

War Week:

  • Monday: 10:00-11:30, AS 3: Teaching “Sexy, Silly, Scheming Saints”
  • Monday, 2:00-3:30, McGuire’s Marauders (N06): Co-hosting “Crossing Cultures in Storytelling”
  • Tuesday, 2:00-4:00, Bog University (E24): Teaching “SCA’s Greatest Hits” (substitute teacher for Liam St. Liam)
  • Wednesday, 5:00-6:00, AS 5: Teaching “Your Persona in an Hour”


Otherwise, a better plan is to add yourself to my “wander list”. I try to make it to these camps at least every few days, so hopefully the chances will be good that I run into you. The wander list as it currently stands is:


  • Bhakail (N11)
  • Dione Sidhe (N07)
  • Westengate (N03)
  • Northshield (E02)
  • High Rafters (E03)
  • East Kingdom Royal (E06)
  • Vestfell (E06)
  • House Silverkeep (E15)

Runestone Hill:

  • Painted Wheel / Barony of an Dubhealgeann (W03)
  • Eoforwic (W08)
  • Enchanted Ground (W09)


  • Shauna’s Camp (W11)
  • Casa Bardicci (E19)
  • Wild Rose (E24)
  • Havres des Glaces (E18)

Dagan’s Dell:

  • Sharc / Quatrefoil (N21)
  • Coldwood / Mountain Freehold (N29)

Do you want to be added to the list? Just let me know and I will be happy to include you! I always love camps that love a wandering performer! (Bonus points if you feed me. You will be my best friends forever.)

I hope to see you all soon! Safe travels!

Pennsic -2 weeks report

In fifteen days, I will be at Pennsic. As is inevitable, I am not nearly as ready as I thought I’d be. One of these years, I’m gonna do what I promise myself every year at War: get everything organized during my 50-week “town run” so that I’m super-prepped with plenty of time to spare.

Ahahahaha… I crack myself up sometimes. Let’s be honest: it’s gonna be like this forever.

While I only start my formal Pennsic diary once I get in the car to War, I have enough thoughts spinning in my head that I thought I’d write them all down. So consider this a preview of the Pocket Bard’s 2016 Pennsic Diary, two weeks early.
