Description
This class is for newcomers, people returning to the SCA, and for anyone curious as to how newcomers see the SCA. I have been in the SCA for less than a year, and I have done a lot from attending wars, competing in A&S competitions, joining a household, being active in 2 guilds, being the Primary Branch herald of my canton, rapier fighting, heavy armor fighting, brewing, sewing garb, cooking for feasts, period games, participating in court, etc . . . In hindsight, there are things I wish I had done differently. I would like to lead a discussion where newcomers can ask me questions and I can use my first hand experience to answer their questions. I will have a copy of the new Known World Handbook for reference. I also encourage anyone to come that wants to share stories or their experience. Several people have asked me about how they can make the SCA more inviting to newcomers, and this class is their chance to get some answers.
