Newcomer Night: Pick a Hobby or Collect Them All

Pick a Hobby or Collect Them All

(Taught November 3, 2022 for the Aire Faucon Newcomer A&S Night)

Activities of the SCA : 
The SCA has three pillars supporting it: Arts, Service, and Martial activities. Arts is the Phoenix flames visible from a distance and it’s beautiful feathers, Martial is the raptor’s cry and claws, heard by many and respected by all, and Service is the bone structure within the beast and the nest it provides to its family. As a non-profit educational organization, we must teach our arts and perform our services, with the martial activities often being the easiest for outsiders to grasp.
