- I am new to the group and returning to SCA after 15yrs. When I was
involved 15yrs ago I wasn't really into it all that much (ie just a
few events). I never picked a name and all so now that I have 3 kids
and all of them are excited about getting started we are looking for
help on Names and Persona.
We are wanting to go 13c England lower class (ease of garb for all
kids since I am going to be making everything).
The Sir name have chosen is Chapman because we are related to John
Chapman (Johnny Appleseed) and Chapman is 13c English.
First names I have chose are
Please let me know if you feel these are period correct names. I am
also looking for a place that will help with our language and
Gretchen in Wyoming
i feel so much better knowing i'm not the only person in the middle of nowhere!

I'm sure there are plenty of us in that boat! For me, I live in a very
small and secluded coastal town... not only is it an hour and a half
one way to my nearest shire's meeting, but also to the nearest Walmart
and dollar store (and any fast food aside from our crappy McD's - just
to show how rural we are.)
We're lucky that we get one event only 2 hrs away from us (Beltaine
Coronation in Cloverdale/Wolfscai rn)... but every other event is at
least 5 hours one way from us.
It's a huge gas expense, and of course the SCA in and of itself is
quite an expensive hobby (especially it seems if you're royalty! Hubby
still hasn't decided if he wants to try for THAT yet, though he wants
to learn to fight, though our closest practice is over 3 hours
away)... but it has seemed to me that the experience, the fun, and the
friendships you gain make all that expense worth it!
(We've gone to March Crown, which is about 6 or 7 hours from us one
way, and to Beltaine, and hope to make 12th night in San Jose this
year --- the same distance from us as Crown was, with a pregnant
belly, and a two year old boy... wish me luck all!)
