Editor’s Note: Approximately 3 weeks ago, the Board of Directors issued an updated mission statement for the Society. Many gentles wrote the BoD with their concerns about the wording, which specified a focus on only pre-seventeenth century cultures that had contact with Europe. The previous statement is below:

“The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an international non-profit volunteer educational organization. SCA is devoted to the research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat, and culture, focused on Western Europe and its cultural contacts, and employing knowledge of history to enrich the lives of participants through events, demonstrations, and other educational presentations and activities.
