About and FAQWhat is the SCA? The SCA is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to researching and recreating the arts and skills of pre-17th century Europe. To find out more information the society in general, visit www.SCA.org.
What is a symposium? A Symposium is an event with a very narrow focus not only to provide a chance for lots of music and dancing, in our case, but also to provide a forum for discussing new research or providing new ideas for adding music, dance and atmosphere to SCA events.
What should I bring? It is a good idea to bring a water bottle or mug. Since there is a dayboard (lunch) we will have disposable plates, cups and flatware but you may bring your own if you want. If you are a musician, you should bring a music stand, any soft (recorders, strings, soft buzzies...) or loud (shawms, curtal, sackbutts...) and music that you might like to use at a jam session.
If I bring instruments, will there be a safe place to keep them when I go out to dinner or overnight? There will be secure locked rooms in both the Parish hall and at UPH. The event steward will be the only one with a key.
I am new to the SCA and have no idea what to do or what to wear? We will have a newcomers information table set up at UPH with information on the local group and international society as well as clothing that you can borrow for the evening balls.
