An Ealdormerean Account

I just finished reading an Ealdormerean account of Pennsic 34 at SCA Today. Strongly recommended. I do wonder what a "Jack and Jill" is, and whether "gack" is gear in Canadian slang, Ealdormerean slang or even SCA slang that I haven't heard.

According to Wikipedia "Jack and Jill (J&J) or Dance with a Stranger (DWAS) is a format of competition in partner dancing, where the competing couples are the result of random matching of leaders and followers. Rules of matching vary. The name comes from the popular English nursery rhyme, Jack and Jill."

Don't tell my students, but I love Google and Wikipedia when I need a quick answer! What did we do before the Internet?
