SCA bound together by "artistry, craftsmanship and chivalry"

In early January, 2013, the West Kingdom crowned its King and Queen with all the pomp and ceremony due Their ranks. Karen Rarey, correspondent for the Contra Costa Times, attended the Coronation and learned about the SCA.

During her visit, Rarey spoke with Master Richard of Alderwood (Rich Templeman) and Sir Conall Eoin MacTavish (Todd McKovich) about how the SCA has affected their lives. Her conclusion: "The lure of the battle brings most young lads into the fold of the Society for Creative Anachronism, but it is really the artistry, craftsmanship and chivalry of its members that binds them together."
