I know a lot of folks on this board belong to the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism). I have been wanting to get involved for years and a while back attended a few events. However as a single person who did not know anyone involved I really did not feel “welcomed” by the other members. Everyone broke into their little groups and guests seemed more tolerated than welcomed. Now with the Renfest going on I still would like to get involved. What is the best way for a newbie to get started. I know each group will be different but I still would like to give it another shot. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
