Thoughts on the SCA
« on: February 14, 2009, 11:00:32 AM »
Hello all,
There is an SCA group that meets very close to where I live, and that got me curious..... as Rennies, do any of you have any thoughts/opinions on the SCA to share?

Like any nation wide group, each location will be different. Overall the group is more for education than entertainment.

I know a few SCA members and have done sewing for them.  Their grab guide lines are strict on what they wear to fight in.  The few that I know visit TnRn and enjoy seeing what we do.

I'm both a Rennie & a SCAdian. My Bristol Ren Faire Elizabethan persona is also my late period SCA persona. Yes, there is a lot of education in the SCA. But it can be very social as well. I meet with SCA friends every single week for sessions of sewing, calligraphy/illumination or needlework. And I have a lot of fun at SCA events just hanging out with friends as well as taking classes. And there are a lot of bards & dancers & musicians around, so there is plenty of entertainment. One of my good friends is a period magician who performs at most Chicago-area SCA events. It's all what you make of it. And the sewing ranges from simple t-tunics to elaborate Tudor & Elizabethan gowns, so your garb doesn't need to be perfect.

If you would like more information about my experience with the SCA, feel free to contact me.
