Unlike Athena, who sprang fully formed from the head of Zeus, most artisans and scientists learn lessons as they go. It is no different for those in the Society. What was the "standard" when we
began has grown progressively more advanced as more information has become available through the Internet and Inter-Library Loans. More scholars have published research to which we have
access. Sometimes, an artisan will still choose to do something a "modern" way or a "theatrical" way (in the case of costume). Have we, as the general SCA participant, learned to spot the short cuts? Do we know the reasons?

Activities:

  • Brown Bag Lunch
  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Court Bingo -- 50 cents per card or $5 to pick your "lucky" card. (All proceeds go to Barony.)
  • Classes
  • Peer Roundtables -- Please contact Master Thorsinn if you would like to help with these.


All this and you will still have time to relax over dinner with friends after the event is over!
