Good morning, and welcome to the list!
Your local group won't mind the questions at all -- there are few things
SCA folk like to talk about more than the SCA. :-)
On the other hand, *we* don't mind your questions, either, so by all
means, ask away. That's what this list is for!
You'll find that with many questions, there may be more than one right
answer. It may depend on your kingdom of residence, the customs of your
local group, or simply personal preference. So listen to what everyone
has to say, consult your local or kingdom officers -- or the online
written policies -- for anything having to do with official rules, and
form your own opinions about matters of preference.
My best advice as to how to get involved is to find someone at an event
or meeting who's doing something that looks interesting. Then, depending
on the context, say, "Hi, I'm new, and I was wondering if you could tell
me about what you're doing," or "Hi, it looks like you could use a hand
with that scut work. May I help?"
Welcome to the SCA and to the list!
