Me and the SCA
I joined the SCA somewhere around November 2000, at the insistance of my older sister Keren (aka Keterina). It has been a lot of fun so far and a huge learning experience. Something i'll definitely be doing until i'm old and rickety. My SCA carreer began in the March of St. Martin (Sarnia, ON). My first event was their Season of the Wolf a few months after my first meeting. I recieved my AOA at Meele 2002 in the pouring rain from Sarnac and Jolecia. In June of 2003 I moved to Bryniau Twynnog (Kitchener - Waterloo), where I am very active.
