Greetings Calafia!

Potrero War is almost upon us! We are very much looking forward to spending a few days with good friends at our favorite war! We wish to offer a very large and heartfelt THANK YOU to Baroness Deirdre and Mistress Reina, and their hardworking staff for putting in so very much time and effort organizing this event. Potrero War is a huge undertaking, and we can't thank them all enough for creating this event we all love so much.

On the subject of Potrero, we all know that the event runs on the efforts of the volunteers. We would like to encourage everyone to take a few moments to visit the Potrero Volunteer site and sign up for a volunteer shift or two. In particular, we are in need of constables, gate, and parking volunteers. The war can't happen without the efforts of all of you, so we would like to also offer our sincere gratitude to the multitude of volunteers who make the event possible!

Potrero Park has been our home for this event for many years, and we have always been very appreciative of the county for letting us take over the park to have our event. But as times change, there are changes in the park rules and regulations that affect all of us. We know these changes have been frustrating over the years, and have sometimes impacted the way we enjoy our event. We thank everyone for their patience and flexibility with the ever-evolving park rules and regulations. We know it can be a challenge, however, it is really important that we continue our tradition of being good guests of the park and respecting the laws and regulations imposed by the County. When we rent the park, the Barony agrees to follow the rules of the park for our event. When we enter the park as individual attendees, we sign an agreement to follow those rules as individuals. When we choose to not follow the rules, it puts the entire event in jeopardy. So we are asking everyone to remember their courtesy and chivalry while onsite, and help their fellow camp-mates and friends be excellent guests in the park and treat it like the home away from home that it is.

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.
