Hi and welcome! What Cyndi said--we'll do what we can to help you find your way. The link she gave you is a really good place to start--see what SCA groups are local to you. I have a good SCA friend who lives in Florida, but he's in the Orlando area.

Your description of Gulf Wars sounds familiar, though I have never been to that particular event--bad stuff happens (we get sick, the weather is wet, whatever) but the magic of the event is greater than all that.

Hi and WELCOME! We won't throw you out. We'll actually help you find your way.

So the quickest way I know to help you is to point you to a website designed to help you find your local groups.

Welcome again and have fun!

Ok, so don't get mad at me. I'm not an SCA person, but I want to be.
14 years ago my mom's friend took me to Gulf Wars, and to the event on Dauphin Island. I hung with the Mongols camp. I had a blast!! I got up early in the mornings and went to other camps and listened to them tell tales, and I met this belly dancer who taught me a few things, (I was pregnant at the time) to help me deliver my kid, and they were SO helpful. Best delivery ever!
My husband wasn't too thrilled with the experience I had. I did get sick, but it was the fact that I was camping, and pregnant and not drinking as much fluid as I should have been, and Oh my roomy threw me out of our tent one night for some ALONE time with her boyfriend. I ended up sleeping in someone else's tent, (a guy) but I knew him and it wasn't like that, I was cold and didn't even have a blanket.
Anyway, I had a blast. My favorite time was around the camp fires. I've told my kids about the experiences and they so want to go, but this friend is in and out of my mom's life and I don't catch her ever. So I'm hoping to hook up with some SCA people and start doing this again. I'm in Florida, Jay area, which is the northern panhandle, so whatever kingdom that is, that's where I'm at.

I am a fencer and also really into A&S--especially the fiber arts (braiding and weaving in particular, though I'm getting back into embroidery and learning bobbin lace and spinning) and beading. I dabble in archery.

I reside in the CAID. I have kind of lapsed in participation, but still enjoy the people (mostly) and the activities when I can get there.

I was learning to fence, enjoy listening to the bardic arts, did calligraphy and basically was a gofer.

We have a few days of warm weather down here before it turns chilly again. At least where I'm at, lol.

I'm a heavy fighter and I dabble in bardic. What about y'all?

Awesome! I'm in Midrealm. I hope that the weather is treating you better than it is me; I prefer to exercise outside but this winter has been a hard one for that.

What kinds of things do you enjoy doing in the SCA?
