Greetings, Calafia!

We want to start this month by congratulating all of the Calafians who fought in Crown Tourney. It was a joy and a source of pride to watch such chivalrous fighters contend for Caid. As many know, HRH Agrippa won the day for HRH Bridget. Please join us in welcoming them into our fair lands when travels bring them here!

March was busy in the beginning as we attended St Jude’s Ransom tourney. It was a beautiful day in the park with great fighting, a fantastic auction and very generous attendees. We would truly like to thank the Hospitalers of St. John of Caid for organizing this tourney for a wonderful cause. We would particularly like to thank Lady Talan for her work this year. After St Jude’s was the anniversary of St Isidore which was once more a beautiful day (thankfully so common here in Calafia). While Her Excellency and I both had to leave shortly after a wonderful repast, I enjoyed the time. April sees the Anniversary of St. Artemas on the 5th. Remember that the Archery championship will be held on March 30th, the Sunday before at the UCSD Archery range.

Coming in less than 2 months is Potrero War! This event requires hours of work to organize, time put in by a very hard working staff. They have already been working for months to make sure this war is as great as it can be. But it cannot happen with volunteers! Online sign-ups are available, so make sure that you check out all of the ways you can help out the War Effort. Even a single 2 hour shift can help more than you can imagine. In this same vein, April 6th is Brigade practice where fighters can work to hone their melee skills. But Brigade practice is not just for fighters because there is the monthly craft circle as well. Come on join us for a day in the park to casually work on fighting, projects and generally have a great time.

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.
