Inkin' in Lincoln
Saturday, September 20, 2014
White Oak Township Building
202 North Lincoln
Carlock, IL 61725
9:00am to 5:00pm

Welcome all to a day of Scribal goodness!

We have a spacious hall with plenty of tables and chairs. Bring your scribal kit, projects, or just your lovely self! We have tools and supplies to share. Aspiring scribes of all skill levels are invited. A dayboard of snacks and beverages is included in the site fee of $5 per person. (Additional $5 non-member surcharge applies.) Please make checks payable to "Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. - Baile na Scolairi." 

Contact Ellen of the Scholars if you’d like to teach a class or schedule time and space for a specific activity. email: or call: (309) 287-4962. 

The hall will be open from 9:00am to 5:00pm. The hall lighting is good, but you may wish to bring a small task light to help ‘illuminate’ your fine detail work. The Carlock site is just a few miles NorthWest of Bloomington/Normal off I-74.

Should your skills include cookery, additional items for the dayboard are always welcome! The site is BONE DRY. The building is also no smoking and does not allow animals. Please do not block the Fire Department Driveway! There should be plenty of parking behind the community building.

DIRECTIONS: Take your best route to I-74 between Bloomington and Peoria. Take exit 120 toward Carlock. Merge onto W. Washington St. (heading East toward Carlock). Turn left (North) onto Lincoln St. The site will be next to the Carlock Fire Department.

The exit is 120 from either direction on I-74.

Just what do those numbers and lines and holes mean on an Ames Lettering guide and on a Proportional Scale? I'll help you figure this out as I was helped at Pennsic. If you have one of these tools bring it, if not we will just use mine.

The shire of Baile na Scolairi is talking about hosting another session of Inkin' in Lincoln in September or October, 2014. We will probably use the same site in Carlock, Illinois. Stay tuned for details!
