Greetings, Calafia!

June was a quiet month within our Barony, a much needed recovery after a fabulous Potrero. Her Excellency and I, as well as a good number of other Calafians, did travel to the Far North of Carreg Wen to see the Coronation of TRM Agrippa and Bridget. It was fantastic to see how many Calafians traveled so far to see the Coronation of new King and Queen. At Queen's Champion, many Calafians fought to be TRM Bridget's champion with Don Avenal winning in Unarmored Combat.

July is once more a quiet month within our borders, but there are great events just a short distance away. On July 12th, Lyondomere Anniversary sees us bidding farewell to Jon Thomme and Eva as Baron and Baroness and the investiture of their heirs, Padraic and Fausta. Please join Her Excellency and I as we go to support our new cousins in the North. Also, the yearly Caid Prize Tourney will be in wonderful Darach this year on July 19th. The proceeds from this year's Caid Prize go to fund Pentathlon, Caid's Art Champion event.

As was discussed at June's Populace meeting, Calafian Heralds are busy at work to establish a new Baronial level award. This award, proposed to be called "The Serpent's Eye", is intended to honor those whose skill and service are focused on ranged combat. Ask Ariana, Our Baronial Herald, if you would like to see the proposed heraldic design. Speaking of Heraldry, Her Excellency and I also are asking for volunteers interested in helping revive various piece of Baronial regalia that have fallen into disrepair. There are many tasks and various skills needed to make all of our Regalia as beautiful and majestic as Calafia should be. This is fantastic way to learn new skills as we organize various classes and workshops as part of this regalia effort. If you would like to help in away way, please contact Her Excellency or I at our email addresses, found on the Baronial website.

Finally, we are getting ready for August and Arts in the Park on August 3rd. This large demo, conveniently just after our large Comic-Con demo, is a fantastic recruiting tool for our Barony. Please come and support Calafia and our wonderful guilds.

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.
