Fundraiser Lunch

From Master Ximon Martillo de Cordoba, Captain of the Meridian Order of the Blade:

Once again this year, the Meridian Order of the Blade is glad to offer and put on a fundraiser luncheon for this event.

This year, for just $5.00 per person, we will be offering a hearty serving of CHILI (in either beef, turkey or a vegetarian option) with cornbread, cookie and a drink. If you’re feeling more Celtic, we’ll have a limited option (as the main dish) for Irish stew instead of chili. (Get it soon…if it was like last year, it’ll go quickly!)

Largesse Challenge

All artisans are welcome to enter the 2018 Meridies Largesse Challenge. Each entry will consist on 12 items. Overall winner will take home a complete set of one of each item entered. Each entrant will receive one of the items entered. The remaining sets of ten items will be divided between the Barony of South Downs and the Kingdom of Meridies. Further details can be found here.


From Atlanta, travel I-20W to exit 124 (Villa Rica/UWG). Turn left (West) onto Highway 61. Take Hwy 61 for 12 miles then turn left onto the 166 Bypass. At the 6th traffic light, turn right onto Maple Street/Hwy 166.  The University will be on the left.  We are in the Pafford Building. Look for the SCA signs.

Additional directions can be found at the University of West Georgia Maps & Directions page.
