Newcomers Point

The Barony of Glymm Mere is a part of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA), a not-for-profit educational organization which studies the Middle Ages by recreating the pastimes and crafts of the period. International in scope, our activities include tournaments, festivals, classes, feasts, and all manner of arts and sciences you would find in the culture of pre-1600s western Europe.

The SCA is participatory. There are no spectators, and every person plays a part in the creating the atmosphere. For some, this means making an attempt at the proper clothing (we'll help you get started). For others, it means learning calligraphy, fencing, dancing, or whatever activities pique your interest.

We hold "events" (what we call our gatherings) nearly every weekend. Some feature tournaments and feasts, while others specialize in learning more about particular crafts. The summer months often feature full weekends of activities concentrated around a camping event, often ending with bardic revelry around campfire.

Chatelaine

The Chatelaine is the person who helps newcomers. If you are newly joining the SCA, or just visiting an event because the pavilions caught your eye as you drove past the park, this is the person who will answer your questions. And if they can't, they'll help you find someone who can.
