Many of us shop at Amazon for a wide range of products.  Did you know that the SCA can benefit from each purchase you make at no additional charge to you?
 
Here's how:  Go to smile.amazon.com.  Sign into your account and a "pop up" page will appear. On the right side of the page, at the bottom is a "search" window.  Type in: Society for Creative Anachronism and click the search button.  Click on the top one and you are done.  Your donations will be automatic for any purchase within the Amazon Smile program (which is most merchandise). You can also use the following link.     http://smile.amazon.com/ch/94-1698556  
Amazon donates 0.5% of each purchase to the non-profit organizations of your choice and the Society for Creative Anachronism is one of those organizations.  This is a painless way to support our organization.  These donations will be deposited quarterly from the AmazonSmile Foundation into a separate SCA corporate account dedicated for these donations.
  
What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?
The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation.

SCA Announcements
Creation of the Order of Defense
Due to the large amount of information surrounding the additional peerage for rapier and cut and thrust, the Board of Directors decided to participate in a conference call on February 2, 2015. The Board received a large amount of additional comments and suggestions in the two weeks following the January 17 quarterly meeting. This was considered in addition to the first Board call for commentary on this issue.
At the February 2, 2015 special conference call meeting of the Board of Directors, the Board discussed the history of the APEC proposal process, the commentary received from the membership, and the various options available to the Board. The Order of Defense proposal was the result of many years of effort, and while the commentary from the membership opened the Board’s eyes to other options and possibilities, the Board decided at this time to reconsider the proposal to change Corpora to create the Order of Defense. During the call a motion was made and seconded to approve the changes to Corpora, and such motion passed 6 votes for and 1 against.
Motion to approve the proposed changes to Corpora that will create the new peerage, Order of Defense, and direct Laurel Sovereign of Arms to submit such name and heraldry to the heraldic comment process, with the intention of opening the Order on May 1, 2015. Voted in favor of the motion: Arthur Donadio, Andrew Coleman, John Fulton, David Keen and Lisa May. Voted against the motion: Lisa Czudnochowsky. Chairman Scott Berk exercised his option to vote and did so in favor of the motion. Motion passed.
Motion in the matter of the Order of Defense to waive the requirements of Corpora Section IV.G. that the Crown consult the members of a peerage order prior to inducting new members of that order, but only in the case of the first three (3) members of the Order of Defense. Once there are three members of the Order of Defense in a kingdom, the Crown must consult the Order per Corpora prior to adding members. Voted in favor of the motion: Arthur Donadio, Andrew Coleman, Lisa Czudnochowsky John Fulton, David Keen and Lisa May. Opposed: none. Chairman Scott Berk exercised his option to vote and did so in favor of the motion. Motion passed.
No candidate may be inducted into the Order of Defense before May 1, 2015. All candidates inducted into the Order of Defense on May 1, 2015, will carry equal precedence, regardless of the time of day each such candidate was inducted.
Five years ago, the enormous response in favor of a path to peerage was specifically focused on rapier and cut and thrust combat. When and if another martial activity engenders the response from the membership at large that rapier and cut and thrust did, when another martial activity has the depth, breadth and community as exists for rapier and cut and thrust, then the Board of Directors may investigate the possibility of facilitating a path to peerage for such martial activity.

Nope, Henry 8. He was the brother of Mary and Elizabeth. I believe you are thinking of Edward 4 (IV) not Edward 6 (VI).

The Board of Directors would like to briefly remind everyone of the 50 Year Celebration of the Society on June 17-27th, 2016. This is a celebration of the history and the future of the Society. It is also a chance to meet and enjoy the company of those throughout the Known Worlde and experience just how diverse and wonderful the SCA truly is and how much it has grown. The Board does request that if there are other events in the Society on or near the June 2015 dates of 50 Year please take the time to raise a toast and salute what we all share in common. Thank you all.

Greetings all,
There was recently a published article regarding the SCA's 50 Year Celebration. A number of people have voiced concerns about one small portion of the article which indicated that: "The event in Hendricks County is for members only, but... an annual membership is only $45."
Let me be clear in addressing this point of concern: a person need not be a dues paying member of the SCA to attend 50 Year; as such, no one need pay for an annual membership prior to obtaining entry to this event.
It would appear that this comment was taken out of context by the journalist as it is clear that the representative of the event wished to stress that this event was not "open to the general public" like a Renaissance Faire. In speaking to the media, even the very best journalists quote us in sound-bites and even the best representatives of the SCA can be taken out of context; as such, it is clear that the event representative was merely trying to convey that this event is open only to "members of the SCA" (meaning, individuals who attempt to dress and act in a manner and style prior to the end of the 16th Century) as opposed to those individual who have purchased memberships.
I apologize if anyone became confused or concerned by the article as the wording is easily confusing/concerning; however, I am sure that no one sincerely intended to convey that one must purchase a $45 membership prior to gaining entry. Site fees and NMS will be the only financial prerequisite to entering this much anticipated event and to be clear, one need not be a card carrying member of the SCA to attend this event.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Best regards,
A.J. Pongratz
Society Seneschal

A great project that is helping make available a large number of books from 1473 to 1700 available to the public. The Research possibilities are endless and even more books coming soon.
The texts of the first printed editions of Shakespeare, Chaucer and Milton, as well as lesser-known titles from the early modern era, can now be freely read by anyone with an Internet connection. The U-M Library, the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries and ProQuest have made public more than 25,000 manually transcribed texts from 1473-1700 — the first 200 years of the printed book.

SCA Announcement

February 2, 2015 Conference Call

Due to the large amount of information surrounding the additional peerage matter, the Board of Directors has decided to participate in a conference call on February 2, 2015. This is not an unusual occurrence. Conference call meetings are regularly held to help facilitate communication, especially on important issues. This meeting was scheduled for further discussion of the results, reactions, and information that came forth after the last meeting's failed vote on the peerage language change.

The Board would like to assure the membership that they are reading all the comments that have been sent to them so far on the issue. Anyone who would like their opinion heard is encouraged to write the Board at comments@sca.org.

It might help heal some feelings if you didn't call it a "failed vote." Try somethings as simple as "the decision" or "resolution."
