- It's just super fun but you have to like that kind of lifestyle. I love to learn new things so going to a mead class or armor making or embroidery is interesting. I go hoping to make new friends. I've been tied for first place and won second place in bard competitions and there's nothing like being called milady by a man in armor. I went to the Fools War last year where there were alot of pirates and got the same treatment. It's great to be around good natured people who are having a good time.
I'm not interested in the civil war era so my brother in law goes to those and does reenactments. I like the middle ages.
You just have to enjoy what your doing. I'm learning to make scrolls and have purchased the expensive materials to do so but I need alot of work on my calligraphy. I also draw and paint backgrounds for events and anything else I can do to help out.
I have a willingness to serve and getting to where I could win a scroll would be a great accomplishment for me.
When my son and I are away at an event I hate to see the weekend end and have to go back to our mundane lives...... too much reality for me.
There's a great video on you tube about the SCA.
Have fun and come join us,

Subject: [SCA Newcomers] Calling all SCA official and unofficial members!
Hello! I am currently in a college writing class and am doing a
research paper on subcultures. I chose to research the SCA because I
know how much some members are completely consumed by it. I have
friends who are official and unofficial members, but I still don't
know that much about it.
I guess my question for this discussion is this: What is it about the
Society for Creative Anachronism that is so appealing that members
will dedicate practically their whole lives to it?
I am genuinely interested in the answer so please reply! I would love
to talk to somebody!
