Yesterday I said:
<<< Although it is often best to become a regular member by paying dues to the national organization, it isn't required. I usually recommend that new folks play for a few months before paying the annual dues. So "join" by starting to play with your chosen group. >>>
And then I forgot to mention a good article about WHY you should go ahead and pay the SCA dues when you do decide that the Society is for you.
So, see this article:
