Teachers Needed for YouthU and TeenU Tracks at Pennsic


, , , , , ,

Greetings to the Teachers of the Known World,

We are very excited to announce the return of the YouthU and TeenU tracks of Pennsic University this year.

We are looking for teachers who are interested in teaching classes to 11-13 year olds or to those gentles who are 14-17. These classes will be taught in the Pennsic University tents. Please make sure to include a second, unrelated adult in your planning for all classes. No youth teaching experience or certification is required.

Our youth are looking for a variety of classes, with beginning and intermediate arts classes often requested, hands on activities, classes about certain time periods, and practically anything else SCAdians are interested in. Some classes that had high attendance last year included cheesemaking, illumination, and creating a persona from your favorite anime characters.

If you are willing to teach a class, you have two options. You may contact me at youthu@pennsicwar.org with:

  • Class Name:
  • Short Description:
  • Best for Teens/Youth or Both
  • 2-3 Days that are best for you, and morning or afternoon preference.

Or, you may register directly with PennsicU at thing.pennsicuniversity.org, choosing the category of parent/child.

We look forward to offering our youth and teens a full schedule of classes targeted at their age groups and interests.

Thank you,
Leonete D’Angely
YouthU Coordinator

Memorial Garden at the East Kingdom 50 Year Celebration


The East Kingdom’s fiftieth anniversary is coming up this summer, and with it a time for reflection on those of our society who are no longer with us.

The East Kingdom 50 Year Celebration will be held in Schaghticoke, NY from June 28th through July 1st, and will include a Memorial Garden set aside for quiet remembrance of the fallen.

Anyone who participated in the East Kingdom throughout its history may be memorialized in the garden.

For any person to be honored in this way, please prepare a single 11 x 8.5 sheet (landscape orientation), with a photo and a short biography, or whatever words you feel are appropriate.

These pages will be placed within a plastic sheet protector and attached to decorated boards which will surround the Memorial Garden area. You are welcome to send them to the team in advance or bring them with you and post them when you arrive.

If you would like us to print and post your memorial page for you, send it to history@50year.eastkingdom.org no later than June 1, with “Memorial” in the subject line, as a single ready-to-print page in PDF format.

If you have any questions about the Memorial Garden please send them to the EK50 history team at history@50year.eastkingdom.org.

Yours in Service,

Mathghamhain Ua Ruadháin, for the Halls of History and Memorial Garden Team

Board of Directors Update – Hate Speech/Hate Symbol Policy


, ,

The Board of Directors is fully aware of the concerns of our membership regarding hate speech and hate symbols. We are working on drafting new policy to help with these important issues.  Our intention is to create the most effective policy that we can before it is put out for commentary. Please know that your concerns have been heard and are not forgotten.

Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:
SCA Inc.
Box 360789
Milpitas,  CA 95036

You may also email comments@lists.sca.org.

This announcement is an official informational release by the Society for Creative Anachronism , Inc.  Permission is granted to reproduce this announcement in its entirety in newsletters, websites and electronic mailing lists.

Announcements from the East Kingdom Seneschal


, ,

A few announcements:
The following documents have been updated on the Society Seneschal website.

Society Seneschal Handbook – January 2018
Sanction Guide – January 2018

Both can be found here:

Copies of these documents are not allowed on any website other than sca.org and socsen.sca.org. You may link to those pages, but NO COPIES.

Please note the following policy located in the Society Seneschal’s Handbook, from the April 2017 BoD Meeting:

When a group rents Golf Carts, the SCA’s Golf Cart Insurance must be activated. The fee is $50.00 for this activation and may be subject to change as required by our insurance company. All other requirements set forth by the Corporate Office dealing with insurance apply including all pertinent late fees.

Another important portion of the Society Seneschal’s policy deals with trailers:

D. TRAILER INSURANCE All trailers, vehicles or watercraft purchased and owned by the SCA must be registered to the SCA group and must be insured by the SCA group at their own expense. The group must also send A COPY OF THAT REGISTRATION MUST BE SENT TO THE CORPORATE OFFICE WITHIN 30 DAYS OF REGISTERING SAID TRAILER ET AL. Do not register the group’s trailer in the name of an individual or an officer of the group. If a third party’s person or property is damaged as a result of an accident involving a trailer when being towed, the individual who is towing the trailer bears responsibility for liability when the trailer is in transit and should contact their insurance carrier. It is the responsibility of the seneschal of the group that owns the trailer to check to make sure that the tower/driver of said trailer has the appropriate motor vehicle liability insurance annually. Some groups own a trailer that is used for storage only, i.e. it never moves from the storage site. If the state authority requires said “stationary” trailer to be registered, the group is responsible to follow the procedure as outlined above, i.e. a copy of the registration must be forwarded to the corporate office within 30 days of registration.

Please contact me for acceptable insurance limits.

Please be sure to use your official email for all SCA business. Also, please make sure that you use my current email – seneschal@eastkingdom.org. Some are still using previous addresses for the Kingdom Seneschal.

Thank you.

East Kingdom Seneschal
