The Æthelmearc Kingdom Chatelaine, THLady Desiderata Drake, would like to invite those who are new to the SCA and/or new to Pennsic, to the following activities:

Newcomers’ Point

This year the East Kingdom Chatelaine, Lord Erhart von Stuttgart, and I are coordinating the return of Newcomers’ Point. It will be mostly geared towards those who are new to the SCA, but will also have some helpful information for those new to Pennsic. Chatelaines from around the Known World will be on hand to provide information on local groups, different types of activities in the SCA, and some SCA basics (who’s that in the pointy hat, what is court, etc.). The Newcomers’ tent will be in AS 15, between Lost & Found and the Dance tent (see map below), and will be open noon-4pm, Saturday, August 1 through Wednesday, August 5.

Newcomers’ Social

For the second year, the Æthelmearc Chatelaines will be hosting the Newcomers’ Social at 2pm on Sunday, August 2nd in the Newcomers’ Tent (AS 15). Newcomers are encouraged to come and meet other Newcomers as well as Chatelaines from around the Known World, ask questions, and partake of some light refreshments. Rumor has it that there may be some Royals attending to welcome the newcomers as well.
