As you're making your final preparations for Gulf War (or kicking
back and relaxing because you're not going to Gulf War and there
aren't any events scheduled this weekend) take a moment to reflect on
Twenty-eight years ago today, the Principality of Ansteorra created
the first Order to recognize courtesy, skill and teaching ability on
field. At that time, there were only six kingdoms in the SCA, and
rapier was (as far as I know) only practiced in two of them.
Today, the SCA has grown to nineteen kingdoms with rapier is
practiced in eighteen of them. The White Scarf is a grant-level award
in eleven of those kingdoms; the others have their own high-level
Happy White Scarf day, everybody!
