When I started in Caid in '74 I was only 11, I couldn't fight formally, but
I could still train. I COULD fight as archer in wars (even my mother
managed that one). I was in my first tourney in 1979 (after being a squire
a year) (at 16), and that's one of the things that kept me going in the SCA.
Without that SCA would have lost me to D&D because there was little more for
me to do when the 'Adult' play started. I could serve at feasts, and help
with sites and so on, but at the time, being able to fight held my interest.
I feel if I had come across the SCA now as a youth I would pass it by.
