pop over to your local AMTGARD (sp?) group and note the ages ... much 
younger than the majority of the SCA at large ... aside from the "boofer" 
(good typo, i think i'll let it live ...) style combat, the role-playing fantasy 
focus can be much more attractive to the young than the "historical" 
approach of the SCA.  

have a couple in my neighborghood (another good typo ... fit's the 
increasing gentrification we're dealing with ...) that i talk to now and again 
... interesting to exchange observations.  the local group tends to set up in 
a popular park near (and sometimes *on*) the trail i often ride my offroad 
bicycle on ... more than once my riding pack came tearing  down the long 
trail decline, rounded the corner, and rode *through* the middle of one of 
their combats that had flowed onto a public trail ... could'na resist a 
ANSTEORRA!!! at the top of my lungs as we tracked through and around 
them ....
