Emphasis on our shared culture and the continuity of our customs and traditions Activities focused on interactions between experienced members and fresh faces, sharing the stories and legends of the Midrealm culture, and creating new memories.

Event activities celebrating each of the decades roughly corresponding to the dates when we joined the SCA and encouraging interaction between them:
1st Decade: 1969-1979
2nd Decade: 1979-1989
3rd Decade: 1989-1999
4th Decade: 1999-2009

Goals:
To celebrate the history of the Middle Kingdom and, as always, to Have Fun.

Background:
As the members of the Middle Kingdom grow older, they will tend to disappear from our gatherings. It is important to meet and have personal memories of the interesting and eccentric people who belong to our organization. It is equally important for the experienced people to make friends with the newer members in order to share our heritage and to welcome our future.
