Event details
Come one, come all to the stellar Barony of Bergental's annual Novice Schola. 

Our usual site, the charming Bethesda Lutheran Church, will host classes for all ages!  Come learn something new, share your knowledge, and enjoy the fellowship of friends.  The day promises to be filled with classes from all the areas of our great society. 
A class list is available https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vRwQfzo0-1_C8uIi7UIalAABlltF-sxS5g3R3d0P2GRc-_FCbxNnI8rdaHkziJJFEKmWz8Q6n-8Zz6A/pub " target="_blank">HERE at and will be updated as classes come in.

If you are interested in teaching or in a particular art that you would like to see taught please contact our class coordinator Mistress Barbeta at harpnfiddle@pobox.com.  **Please keep in mind that your class will not be added unless Mistress Barbeta gets an email from you!**

The Main Hall features demonstrations, merchants, and our famous potluck dayboard at midday.  We ask that those who wish to participate in our POTLUCK DAYBOARD please contribute dishes or finger foods for 8-10 people:

Names beginning with A-I => Finger foods (veggies and hummus, small pasties, cheese plate, pickles, olives, etc.)

Names beginning with J-P => Main Dishes (meat pies, quiches, roast chickens, etc.)

Names beginning with Q-Z => Breads/Sweets (bread and butter, fruit platter, cookies, pita, etc.)

In addition, we will have a spectacular opportunity Arts &Sciences display.

Novice Schola will have an A&S display location for several types of art this year. 

The first A & S collection shows the depth and breadth of our Barony’s current knowledge.  Bring any project, finished or in progress, that shows how you are working the winter hours away.  Please share the things you are working on that show the deft skills you wield, as well as the patience and time you put into the art you love.  Contact the A&S minister to coordinate if you need more than a table space for your display.

The next collection we will display will celebrate the collective memory of the populace.  As EK 50 year approaches, there is a cry for the scrolls, photographs, and memories of the Barony.  Help us share our collective history of the bright Barony of Bergental.  Bring your scrolls, photographs, poems, stories, and words.  There will be a “Gallery Wall” to display our Barony’s treasured works of art.  Please consider bringing your artwork and allowing us to hang it in the hall for the day to show the great masterpieces that have developed and grown over the last 50 years!  Also, we have been asked to amass some photographs, stories, poems and/or scroll work to be added to a scrapbook page describing our Barony.  Please consider contributing to this most worthy project.

Attention all story-tellers, bards, and poets!  Do you have a story that describes the start of our beloved Barony of Bergental? Maybe you have a story of a more recent time when something amazing happened in or because of our Barony? Do you have a story, song, or poem of SCA history that you would like to share and have recorded for posterity in the Kingdom? There will be a video booth as our third display, where we will record and collect the oral histories and traditions of the Barony!  These recorded memories will accompany us to EK 50 year, where they will be displayed on a tablet on our table so our stories can be retold with fidelity. 

Thank you for your art, and for sharing your light with us in this display.  Please feel free to contact your A&S minister and her deputy with any questions about these displays.  We look forward to seeing your shining lights at Novice Schola!

The day of classes will culminate in a Baronial court.

The church is only partially accessible.
