<<I belonged to SCA decades ago and only have returned recently. I hope
to become involved this coming year, particularly in events and Arts
and Sciences. I think it is the A & S that baffles me the most. It has
become far more complex than I remember "back in the day". How do we
get involved more with Arts and Sciences? I'm interested in many, but
particularly in fibers/textiles, gardening, cooking, and illumination.
My husband is interested in woodworking and brewing.>>
If you just want to do those arts and sciences, just find someone doing them
or talking about them at events, introduce yourself, and say you are
interested; most likely you will have immediate help in getting started. It's not
necessary to go through Kingdom University courses or find a Laurel to teach you
to get involved, although sometimes it can seem like that is the case.
I think what has probably become more complex is the concept of competitions
and such. I don't like competitions because they make me think more of the
local county fair than the Middle Ages, but many people do enjoy them. If you
are interested in that end, local advice would be your best bet as the kinds
and structures of competitons differ from kingdom to kingdom

are in the outback of Atenveldt, a couple of hours from the closest
group. I certainly will look into some of the specific online groups!
