There are a lot of things going on SCA wise for me right now, so much so that I haven’t been posting about them.
Local Group – The shire is still around, but it is currently only barely functional. It seems that a good portion of our populace is taking a bit of a break from things. It is both understandable and frustrating. I understand wanting and needing to take a break. It is frustrating as I would love to have more new people coming out to see what we do, but having so few people there makes it hard as it presents a terrible image. I’m not entirely sure how to excite people to come out either. That makes me so frustrated.
Queen’s Guard – I am a member of the Queen’s Guard for Her Majesty Gabrielle. This is a position that I have not held before, and so far, it has been interesting. I am not in the best of shape, and this is definitely pushing my abilities. It is also pushing me to do better with my own health so I can better able to act as a guard. That is a plus.
Queen’s Guard Quest – As part of the Guard, our Chivalry Advisor issued a Quest to all of us. I am not sure if I will be able to complete it, but I will be trying to for sure. I think my sticking point is going to be finding members of the White Horn that I can challenge. While there are many, being in the same place as they are may be a bit of a problem. If I had been able to make it to War Practice, or if I were likely to make Pennsic I don’t think I would have much of a concern with it. I have a plan, I just have to hope the people are available to make it work.
100 Days of A&S – A challenge was issued to undertake 100 days of A&S. I am in the middle of it. I am working with Duolingo to learn Welsh, and working on a couple of string projects that I have. I also have a couple of books that I am working through.
The Spark Challenge – This was issued at Coronation by Their Majesties. Information on it can be found here: Spark Challenge . I need to get some pearls to pass out for this. I would like to earn some as well, but I don’t know that I need to have the physical representation of having done something ‘new’.
10 hours of Service in 100 Days – This is another challenge that I have undertaken, which with what I am already scheduled for – should be pretty easy to do – I tend to have a bit of a ‘helium hand’. As of this writing, I estimate I have around 3 hours in already.
So, there it is. Some of the stuff going on for me in the SCA right now. Too bad work interferes with my fun.
