Fair Greetings,

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 
our history...

Twenty-eight years ago today, the Principality of Ansteorra created 
the first Order to recognize courtesy, skill and teaching ability on 
the rapier
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 
rapier awards.

Happy White Scarf day, everybody!
