Re: Poll: Hard to get involved in SCA?
- Hail again,<br>This is my new online persona, som
as to match my SCA persona. I am still the same
Alaric that posted my armour in the pics section, just a
new online name.<br>Getting started is rough, there
is no question about it. But I have found that
mainly MY problem with getting rolling was... well...
lazyness. I have just recently begun making my own garb and
as I am having ALOT of trouble finding fighter
practices that are not on Sundays through thursdays, that
may be making it even harder. You see, I work grave
shift and have Friday night and Saturday nights off...
there are no practices in my LOCAL area for practice.
But I will say this, I have had several responces to
every inquiry I have sent about it. I just wish the
information was easily available.<br>Just remember, getting
started is not the tough part, finding folks you are
comfortable with may be the hardest. The SCA is like school,
I can kinda remember that far back,... you will
find friends, enemies and folks that you just
associate with, but in the long run, you will find your
nitch and a great group of folks and have a great time.
Force yourself to attend meetings and gatherings. Go in
your mundane clothes if need be, if folks get on you
about it, then ask how you can get involved to make
some garb! Problem solved... but get rolling... I have
"shlepped" along with the SCA for 12 years or so, and have
just now begun to "get involved". I kick myself daily
for my foot dragging. Just dive in, if the water is
too cold... move to warmer waters... but stay
wet.<br><br>Alaric von Brukhausen
