6435Activities for New People at this weekend's upcoming Carnivale.
- Jul 5, 2011Recently we have been doing a lot of demos, and hopefully our numbers
have been growing. One of the hardest things at events is to find
enough engaging things for new people (who are not yet equipped or
authorized to do other things). Therefore at Carnivale this weekend,
we will have a full set of activities aimed at keeping those new to
the SCA engaged.
These activities include a scavenger-hunt in the site booklet, where
they are encouraged to get signatures from different types of people
(Marshals, Knights, Squires, Archers, Cooks, Warders, ext.), as well
as an SCA themed trivia game. Completed entries will be entered into a
prize drawing to be awarded that evening*.
If you have any new members, or people interested in the SCA, please
encourage them to attend the Carnivale event. Please also be aware
that there will be extra new people at the event, and that they might
be coming up to you for an introduction and a signature.
At the event there will also be authorizations for rapier, combat
archery, and armored combat. This is the second to last event you can
authorize at, for those that want to fight at Pennsic.
Finally, if anyone has spare tokens, favors, beads or the like- this
would be a great opportunity to give out tokens of appreciation to new
people, rapier fighters showing prowess for the Baronial Championship
position, newly authorized fighters, and the like. These are great to
collect and to use within your “culture” box.
