      I believe the new Known World Handbook (available for sale at www.sca.org) also has some very helpful articles on court etiquette and courtly behavior in general, all written with the SCA newcomer in mind. Also, feel free to ask your local heralds about court protocol, this is one of our areas of expertise.

      My Lady, and indeed all of the Barony,

      I am going to plan to have 2-3 sessions at various meetings, events and practices in the local area during the next 2-3 months, during which I will cover appropriate court ettiquete. 

      If any of you are interested in learning the correct behavior while in court and if called up in court, then please attend one of these sessions.  They will last about 30 minutes tops and will help to acclimate newer gentles, or even seasoned peers who need to be refreshed, on the basics. 

      A List of these sessions, will be posted in the near future to this list, and all canton lists. 

      Expect one such session to be held at All Souls.

      In Service to the Dream and the Barony,

      Court Behavior From: D'vorah bint al-Attar



      Court Behavior

      Posted by: "D'vorah bint al-Attar" dvorah@...   dvorah.batadar

      Last summer (2010) I had the pleasure of being called up for an honorable mention in an A&S competition, but that pleasure was short-lived as I realized, halfway up to the throne, that I had no idea of what to do once I got there. True to form, I was -- I am told -- cutely awkward at best.

      I don't want that to happen again. If ever I find myself under the royal or baronial gaze again, I would rather not disgrace myself, my canton, and my family of friends in the same manner twice. (I'm sure that, all unwitting, I will accidentally find many *different* ways to embarrass us all.)

      Is there a regular occurrence which takes place at the shire or baronial level, within Chicagoland, at which one might request instruction in the forms and behaviors most appropriate in the courts of gentle folk? Preferably NOT on a Friday night or a Saturday, since I can never attend those due to religious obligation?
