scacommunity.com launches new website

Christophor and Emily Wilson have spent the past six months coming up with the concept and direction of the newest website to bring the SCA community together.

SCA Community

I started this website to centralize a location for those in the SCA to interact, learn different trades and be able to buy and sell period goods online. Over the years I have found many different websites that I liked which had great SCA information. However, many disappeared over the years or I forgot the domain name.

"How serious can you be dressed in a kilt?"

Bystanders came face to face with the Middle Ages recently at Machado Elementary School in Lake Elsinore, California. Justin and Ashley Katz of San Jose decided to give the activities a try.

The Morgan Hill Times has the story.

Shire Lagerdamm invites you to Newbie Collegium Imbolc January 10, 2009 Come and celebrate with us

Peace Lutheran Church
Corner Donaghey Ave and Dave Ward Dr
Conway Arkansas

As our ewes prepare for birth and soft rains replace the snows, the Shire of Lagerdamm invites you to join them for a celebration of the coming of spring. Imbolc is one of the four principal festivals of the Irish calendar, celebrated among Gaelic peoples and some other Celtic culture. The holiday is a festival of the hearth and home, and a celebration of the lengthening days and the early signs of spring. While it is still winter, changes are already taking place and spring will be here soon. It is an awakening of the earth and all of its creatures. Imbolc is a festival of lights. Candles are lit at dusk on Imbolc eve and placed in every window of the house. This is symbolic of lighting the way in to the future and the coming season of spring and renewal. Location:
Shire Lagerdamm (Conway Arkansas)
