This is not your dry, sit in class and listen history we’re talking about here. It’s roll up your sleeves and dive right in hands on history. Hit your (armored) friends with rattan sticks as hard as you can. Fence like a musketeer or a pirate for honor or booty. Send your cedar shaft (or fiberglass for combat) speeding to hit your target with deadly accuracy like Robin Hood of yore. If you are not into combat or weapons, there is still a great many other things to be done. Learn any number of arts and crafts from people that have developed skills and techniques for making or doing things the way they were centuries ago. Perform fine arts and participate in group competitions. There is literally so much to do and learn that you could spend all your time and never even put a dent in it.
Beyond all the competitions and projects, the royalty and ceremonies, the SCA is at its heart all about having fun. Sure, we do like people to make an effort to play the part, but it’s not all about dressing up and recreating history. The Society is a great place to meet people with similar interests and make new friends. I have friends all over the country now that I met in the SCA. No matter where you go in the United States or many other countries you can find a local group. So come out to one of our events, go to one of our meetings, or contact our Hospitaler or any other officer for more information. And once again, welcome to Wiesenfeuer!

Gulf Wars is just few days away! I am proud to announce that the Barony of Wiesenfeuer had a grand total of 19 people pre-register for Gulf War. For those who’ve registered make sure you have talked to our Gulf War land-o-crat HE Aldric before you go. First timers to the War, pack for all weather conditions because it can all happen in a week. Remember if you want to volunteer for anything at Gulf War that you sign up for it so you can earn some cash for your group. You can choose to sign up with Wiesenfeuer or your Canton.
Norman’s Med-Faire is coming up soon as well, this is one of our main recruiting demos and we love to have as many folks there as possible. Remember, Med-Faire is a three day demo, if you cannot make it all three days that is fine. Come out for a few hours, be artsy or fight, walk the ropes meet new folks and visit with friends. Then you can go Shopping!
