Not anymore, but I was for years (but on the other hand, it's BEEN years, too, and it was pre-kid).

Somewhere we have an old SCA/rennies thread. I'll try to find it and give it a bump.

Hmmm, I guess it got archived and locked, but here it is: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=253397

Is anyone going to pennsic this year? :

I was never fully SCA because I never had access. I did go to Shakopee and other ren faires, wear garb, and take broad sword an rapier lessons (real weapons). I had more access to foam weapon fighting groups than anything else.

Not much action since becoming a mom, though. Perhaps we'll take DS to Shakopee one of these summers.

West Kingdom, here! My son and husband rarely attend with me these days, but I'm active. THL Elsa Saxenkammer, Baroness of the Court of the West is pleased to make your acquaintence. Being a native Westerner, I have now reached my title usage quota for the year.

I'm in Calontir and there are a couple of folks from my barony on the board. My DH and I have still been fairly active since our DD came along though it has been more local and nearby activites. I've done a bit of research on children in the Middle Ages which also keeps me motivated.

I don't usually go to Pennsic but is anyone going to the Lilies War next month?

I went to pennsic last year - with dd who was 2 at the time - then dh came and got her after only 2 days.

I now have ds who is 1 month old. I'd love to go to Pennsic, but pretty much have no oe to camp with. The folks I camped with last year are not too welcoming and even less so this year. There is another camp, but no kids in it.

In the whole Barony I can count the number of kids on two hand, and I have two of them! We just don;t have many really little ones around. Most are older kiddos and they don;t come around much.

I was hoping to find other sca mamas out there. DD was done breastfeeding when i got into the sca. Now I have one horribly modified outfit for nursing ds in.

I'm in Midrealm - Barony of Red Spears

i saw the old thread, but saw it was locked, so i started this to try and find sca moms

I go to sca events sometimes, but my dh is much more involved than I am. I just don't really find it fun with the kids, I feel like I spend all my time just keeping them safe and out of other people's stuff. dh and I met in the sca 10 years ago

I so love the sca - i'm at that point that i jut want to be immersed in it. I majored in art and art history, so go figure.
I leave the 3 year old at home with dad mostly now, but baby will come with me now.

yup

Missed most of the wars last year..but have been gearing up for a couple. We are really lucky that the clan we spend most of our time with is not only the largest bard clan but also the one that puts on all the kid stuff And there are about 12 or so kiddos from 2-12 yrs. Most of the mamas are pretty AP..but I don't know them super well.
My six year old LOVES it..my husband is a heavy fighter so it's a hoot to go watch. I just wish I knew more folks to hang with during combat etc.

Anyone here in An Tir? Aquaterra?
post #13 of 123
I'm in An Tir, closest barony is Lionsgate. I'm just outside the shire of Lionsdale.

We go to Clinton War some years, but if we get our goats like I hope we will in the next month, I'll be staying home with them and the children.
post #14 of 123
Hey, one of my all time favorite people is a relatively recent (last 5 years) transplant from AnTir. Any of you know Duchess (now) Kara Baraksdottir? She's the adopted daughter of Lao and the late Jarl Barak, just reigned twice down here with Uther- who has reigned in both the West and AnTir.

We might do West AnTir next year, but I don't do many wars.

I am once again in Calontir- started in Artemisia before it was a principality (A.S XXI), moved to Meridies (now Gleann Abhann), Calontir, MidRealm, and now Calontir again.

Unfortunately, I have to skip Lilies again this year, and Pennsic is definitely out of the question. I would love to hit the Artemisian Uprising next month, as my brother has been put on notice of vigil to be Knighted, but that is also a no go.

oh no, that stinks you have to miss your brother's thing.

it's always cool to hear families (not young kids) in the sca. or brothers or sisters. my family thinks i;m a freak
post #17 of 123
This will be my baby's first Pennsic. Last Pennsic, my hurdy gurdy barely fit on my lap.

/wave

Not SCA, but since the other thread was Faire people as well, I thought I'd poke my head in....

RPFS here, I've been working it since 1989 with only 2 years off - I got my entire family into it (parents, little brother, and now husband)

How ya doin'?

Yeah, he is the first in the family to become a peer. My sis was the first to do SCA, but she is in a mixed marriage and doesn't do much anymore. My mom even goes to an event every once in a while. Dad says it is not his thing (he did go to Estrella one year), but he did black powder rendevous when we were kids.
post #20 of 123
I'm a total newbie to the SCA. I went to one local project meeting, and really loved it. Planning on going again next week, and hopefully finding a good event to go to, with my dp. (and make some garb for him. I have some that will work from ren faires, if I make a smock. never got to that lol)

(also not a mama yet, but ya know. someday soon, I hope )
