Chatelaine – Lady Chana Freidl the Maker

We have had a couple active newcomers recently!  Social and archery/thrown weapons practice have shown to be excellent places for new people to learn about the SCA in a relatively low-stress environment, and I’m very grateful to everyone who has made them feel so welcome.  We will also welcome some newcomers at Pennsic this year!  I plan on holding a Rummage Sale (“Plague sale” started sounding a little too on-the-nose after Covid brought an actual plague) at Commons again this year.  As always, if anyone has Gold Key to donate, let me know!

Pennsic – Online paid pre-registration ends on June 14th, please get your pre-regs in before then so your camp masters don’t have to track you down!
