About Ivan Shield Bane


Ivan Shieldbane is an Engle Saxon adventurer from the Migration Era. Ivan can be found in the tournament Eric or on the war field if there is a contest of skill he enjoys watching. Ivan really enjoys a good story and the song and passion performers bring to the bardic circle. Ivan enjoys earth tones and dark colors, but Ivan doesn’t give such much thought.

Food and Drink Preferences

He is an enjoyer of foods from all over the world and has been known to imbibe alcohol (but he’s cut it back in recent days). Ivan prefers Gatorade, iced tea, and of course, water.

About Mina de filia Philipe


Mina de filia Philipe’s persona is that of a 14th century Navarrian woman. She loves archery, arts, and evenings around the campfire. Mina can often be found watching tournament fighting, working gate, watching her children’s activities, or socializing with… well, pretty much anyone. Her greatest joy in the SCA is the people. The bonds of friendship and family forged with those near and far are what brings the Dream to life for her.
Her favorite colors are blue, teal, and silver.

Food and Drink Preferences

Mina will try most any foods. She is particularly fond of pasta, bread, and tacos! She likes most all fruits and fresh vegetables, though strawberries are her favorite. She prefers sweet over salty. She does not like raw onions, fish, stinky cheese, or cooked broccoli. Mina does not drink alcohol. She prefers sweetened tea (hot or iced), Pepsi, and fruit punch Gatorade.

While Our time has just started, We must look to the future and secure heirs to the Alpine Throne.

Our tournament will be fought standard double elimination, An Tir shield standards, weapon length limited to weapons under 5 feet.

We will be requiring physical letters of intent, due the morning of the tournament. We also wish to have lots of pageantry so banners and a personal herald to extol the virtues of their chosen pair will be necessary.

We are looking forward to a great tournament to choose Our successor.

Due to rising COVID numbers, we have decided to postpone Summits A&S and Bardic Championship by 2 weeks.

The new date will be March 5th. The site will be in Southmarch:

Scottish Rite Temple
632 Walnut Ave
Klamath Falls, OR 97601

The A&S championship will be run a bit differently this year. Rather than the traditional format, entrants are asked to bring examples, completed or not, of everything that you do. Each entrant will have space to spread out and display their portfolio of work in the Arts and Sciences. Documentation is always good, but don’t get too stressed out over it.

We are striving for the event to have more the feeling of an Arts & Sciences Fair than a traditional competition…kind of like a Summits version of Athaneum. . We will not be using the standard judging sheets as they do not really lend themselves to this format. There will be one set of judges who will visit and chat with all of the entrants in a low stress fashion. The judges will consider each entrant’s quantity and quality of work, their ability to discuss and show their work, and their depth and/or breadth of involvement in the Arts & Sciences. They will discuss all the entries and recommend a new Champion to Their Highnesses. And (of course) everyone in attendance will be invited to peruse the displays and geek out with the entrants as they wish.


      1.  Performance art of any style is encouraged. Please let me know if you intend to perform.
      2. If your art is too bulky to bring with you, then photos would be great.
      3. If you will be including a research paper, please send it to me ahead of time so that it may be given a fair reading.

Entrants need to inform Their Highnesses and The Alpine Scholar of their intent to enter the competition ASAP; but no later than Friday, Feb. 4th (please don’t wait that long, we need time to prepare). Email &

For the Bardic Championship, each entrant should prepare three performances. They will all perform in each of the first two rounds. The best performers will go on to a final round where the winner will be decided. We are not requiring formal documentation, but do want the entrants to provide a document with a brief description of their performances along with any lyrics, poetry, or prose associated with the performances. Email your intention to enter by Feb 4th to

We are looking at what options that will be available to make this a hybrid event, so that people can participate in the entries and judging online if they are not able to make the event in person. More information about that will be forthcoming.

With today’s announcement that August events, along with September Crown, are cancelled, you may be wondering what is happening with September Coronet.

At this time, we are continuing to plan for September Coronet as if it will occur as scheduled.  We are also making plans on what to do if Coronet can not be held as planned.

Please join us on the evening of July 21st and we’ll share a few stories, answer any questions you may have, and provide the latest updates.

Kingdom of An Tir,

As Interim chair of An Tir’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Council, it is my pleasure to announce that the Honorable Lady Aenor de Pessac will be stepping in as our official chair effective immediately. I will continue on as a general member of the Council. It has been an honor to serve the Kingdom as Interim and I look forward to continuing to work on the Council under Aenor’s leadership.

Hear the words of the new chair of the EDI Council:

“Greetings, An Tir, I am Aenor de Pessac, your new EDI Council Chair. The mission of the EDI Council is to promote the values of inclusive excellence throughout the Kingdom. My goal as the new chair is to support the populace and the members of the Council in working together to achieve that mission. My modern background is in project management, and this experience paired with my deep personal commitment to equity and inclusion are what made me interested in doing more for our Kingdom and our Society. As chair, I want to increase the communications and transparency around the work and role of the council. I also want to improve the awareness and accessibility of the resources and support provided by the Council. It is critical that we all play a role in ensuring the Dream is available and accessible to everyone, for this is how we will keep the Dream alive not just for ourselves, but for future generations.”

Yours In Service,
Baroness Genevieve Choue
