Many Thanks to the Chroniclers of the Oaken Region

I would like to thank all the wonderful Chroniclers of the Oaken Region of the Middle Kingdom for all the work they have done.

Being a Chronicler is often a thankless, and over-looked position. However, it is by the efforts of the Chroniclers that our wonderful history as an organisation is recorded. Without the Chroniclers, we would not have much, if any, history of how the SCA has grown.
