Re: [SCA Newcomers] good eve, m'lords, m'ladies
- Maybe you should gently tactfully remind your parents that many young
people your age are into drugs drinking gangs and casual sex. There
are much more dangerous and unhealthy hobbies than sewing making
beads singing and rooting for guys with sticks.
Best of luck!

- Okay, I'm a parent, and sometimes parents worry about their kids (no
matter how old or young) getting into things that could harm them
i.e. cults, gangs, etc. Your parents may not want you to join the
SCA or participate in SCA events because they don't understand it or
know anything about it. The way to solve that problem is ask them
to attend your local group's meeting with you so you call all ask
questions and see what it is about. If they are into PC use, have
them check out the SCA website www.sca.org and any local web pages.
In our Barony, we have different "sub groups" one of which is
a "College" composed mainly of high school students (and some college
students who were members in HS). There are adult supervisors
(marshalls & seneschals) who are parents, teachers and/or members of
the SCA. However, if you heart is just set on Pennsic, you'll have
to wait :)
