Best SCA Memories (so far)

  • Baroness' War. Sitting at gate with a small crowd, listening to stories from Baroness Amanda
  • Awesome road trip with (then) Baroness Amanda Kendal of Westmoreland and Her Ladyship Isobel fitz Gilbert to California for the West Kingdom's Collegium Occidentalis trip.
  • First Ithra session at False Isle; was one of only two non-instructors to come from Lions Gate for the event. Sitting up late where we were crashing and listening to the stories from Baron Gerhard and Baroness Amanda. Wow.
  • Clinton War. Can't remember the year. Watching some gorgeous men wrestle by firelight. Later listening to some of them sing.
  • Clinton War. Same year. Playing Mah Jong with Mistres Cushag and others - toasting marshmallows over the tealights.
  • Fields of Gold. Looking at someone's lovely dyeing, singing in the bardic circle. Small group, very friendly. Absolutely loved. Didn't want to leave and come home.
  • Odin's. Sitting under the Shire's pavilion, on a hot sunny day. Eight or so ladies just chatting and enjoying the day.
