Greetings Calafia!

We hope you’ve all been enjoying the slower pace this summer! We’re starting to look towards the fall and prepare for one of the busier seasons in Calafia, with a number of local events and other activities. We wanted to offer our sincere thanks to Duchess Kara and Duke Patrick for organizing the Iron Brigade Comic Con Demo, and to everyone who staffed the booth or fought. They were able to reach out to a lot of interested folks, some of whom we will hopefully see again very soon!

We’re kicking off August with our annual Arts in the Park/Brigade Practice Demo on August 2nd. This is a truly fantastic way to showcase all that Calafia has to offer, and we would like to encourage everyone who is able to attend to do so, and bring friends! This event is less formal than a tournament and will have lots of amazing arts, combat, and activities on display. Come and join us for a nice Sunday in the park, back at our old stomping grounds, Allied Gardens Rec Center. Thank you so much to Euginia, Grainne, Valrik, and Tiberius for your efforts to put this awesome event together!

In addition to many fun events on the horizon, we also have several important business items coming up. First and foremost, it is coming near to the time when we will start working on our officer corps for next year. Many of our Baronial officers will be stepping down at Anniversary in November, and will be looking for replacements or deputies. If you are interested in learning more about what each officer position entails and what duties would be involved, please don’t hesitate to speak with that officer or ask THL Parlane or us. Becoming a deputy does not mean you are agreeing to take over the job – it simply means that you would like to learn more about the position. We would love to see some new folks getting more involved in officer roles, so don’t be shy! We will be accepting nominations Through September, and polling at the September Populace meeting.

Calafia Anniversary also means the changing of the Baronial Court and Guard. We are looking for folks who would be interested in joining us on our court. If you think this might be something you would enjoy, or is something you would like to learn a little more about, please let us or Lady Saran know. The more the merrier! It’s a great way to get to know more people in Calafia and learn more about how things work behind the scenes.

We’re looking forward to getting back into the swing of events, and getting to spend more time with the wonderful people of 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.
