It hardly seems possible, but in 2016, the SCA will be fifty, yes, fifty years old! A celebration is already being planned, which will take place in Danville, Indiana.
The stewards of the celebration have requested help from the populace to determine what people feel is important to include in said celebration, and have asked that people assist by completing a survey. Further details can be found here
Greetings to the Kingdom of Drachenwald.
A Webinar has just been held between the Board, Kingdom Crowns and Kingdom Exchequers. This was attended by Mistress Ariel of Lindisfarne, on behalf of Baron Pol, Kingdom Exchequer.
As I am sure many of you will remember, the SCA had to settle a lawsuit bought against it. In order to cover the cost of that settlement, and cover legal fees, the SCA Inc requested that all North American Kingdoms make a financial contribution. Although Drachenwald and Lochac were exempt, being outside of North America, both made voluntary contributions, which were very gratefully received.
Congratulations to Sir Clancy Fairchild, elevated to the Chivalry this past Saturday 2nd February at the Insulae Draconis Investiture event.
Vivat! Vivat! Vivat!
