I am also a newcomer to the SCA and I started out by going to a few
meetings. I would highly recommend it. In my Shire (Cloondara) we have
two meetings per month and they are held in the back room of a pizza
restaurant. The first is a business meeting which is attended by the
officers and a few hardcore folk. But I get a lot out of those - you
bond with people and find out what's really going on and how to get
involved. Plus, they are just really fun people. :-)
Our second meeting is an A&S (arts and sciences) meeting which is better
attended and more social/educational. I would say that this is the way
to go. After a few meetings you find yourself learning about garb (not
"costume" but garb and we definitely dress in mundane clothes at our
meetings) and you start to think about names and devices. And my
daughter started attending fighter practice pretty much right away which
is also easier when you know some of the folk first.
I don't know your Canton in particular, but perhaps the meeting info is
on their webpage? Also, our shire has a yahoo list that has
announcements and such. Search to see if your Canton has a yahoo group
to join. It's a good way to find out about meetings, fighter practice
(and cancellations), who's going to a camping event and who wants to
share a ride/campsite and so on.
