A message from the teacher for  tonight's Newcomer's Meeting:

Greetings Altavia,

You heard right, we have our monthly newcomers meeting tomorrow night about Attending Events, Garb, Awards in the SCA. We will go over the basics about getting started in the SCA. What to remember when attending events, getting garb together and our recognition system.

Any current members of the barony would be welcome to come talk about any of the above subjects. Also if anyone is willing or able to bring examples of their awards, I would be most Grateful.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

This event is considered, by some, to mark the end of the time period that the SCA covers.
