Greetings Calafia!

The busy summer season is off to a great start! While we don't have any official events in the Barony this month, there is no shortage of other things going on!

We're trying out something new with our Populace Meeting this month - because the regular meeting date falls over Comic-Con, the populace decided that it would be better for us to reschedule the meeting to a different evening. So since we won't be able to access a room at Allied Gardens, we have decide to turn the meeting into a more social event, and make it a summer barbecue. We will still go over our monthly business at 7PM, but there will be social time before and after the business portion. Dinner will be provided. Stay tuned from an announcement from our Seneschal with more details. If this turns out to be a fun event for everyone, we will look at possibly making it an annual tradition. As always, we're looking for feedback from everyone, so let us know what you think!

Speaking of Comic-Con, our annual Iron Brigade demo at Comic-Con is just around the corner. Thank you to Duchess Kara and her team for once again putting this together, and thank you to all the volunteers who take time out of your schedules to be a part of the demo! This is a great source of potential recruitment for the Barony, so your efforts are truly appreciated!

As a follow-up to this demo, we will once again be holding Arts in the Park on the regular brigade practice date following Comic-Con (Sunday, August 7th ). We would like to encourage absolutely everyone who is able to attend this demo to do so. This is a great opportunity to show off all of the amazing things Calafia has to offer, so the more hands the better. Thank you very much to Mistress Ellyn for putting the event together this year, and to our Arts and Sciences team for all of the support for this event.

We're looking forward to a great summer in the best Barony in the Known World. See you soon, Calafia!

In service to Calafia,
Guy Rand and Muirrenn
Baron & Baroness of Calafia

The SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) is a not-for-profit, educational, and historical organization dedicated to reliving and recreating the Middle Ages, as they should have been, from approximately the latter Roman era to 1650 A.D. We seek to learn about the beauty and chivalry of our past and to share with others the wonders of medieval Europe. We re-create the fun parts, like the feasts, costumes & sword fighting...
  ...but leave out the parts like plagues, lice and beheadings!

The society is divided into kingdoms and the kingdoms are subdivided into baronies based on geographic location.
Calafia is one of the founding baronies in Kingdom of Caid located in Southern California
and comprises San Diego and Imperial counties.
