As I write this missive, I am still recovering from a wonderful Beltaine! The games were so much fun to watch. The archery and thrown weapons truly tested the skill of the competitors. The foolery competition was a riot and the bardic competition was a nail biter. HE and I want to thank everyone who came together to make this a great event. Thanks to the aurocrats Sybilla and Loemax. Thanks to Adena and Kyna for running the tavern, keeping us all fed, and making a profit! Thanks to everyone who helped set up and tear down. Thanks to Alicia for the wonderful nobles luncheon and to Candy for the beautiful cake. Thanks to all of the brewers who brought items for the tasting. Thanks to Trevor for running the games. Thanks to Aderyn for running the children's activities, May pole, and the spang hewing. Thanks to Margherita for running the A and S Display and the Spang Beauty Contest. And I am sure that there are some that I am forgetting, but seriously, thank you all so very much!
In case you missed the event. The new champions are:
In the aftermath of all this greatness, remember that we still have a busy eventing season upon us. HE Orlando and I will be in attendance at Queens Champion, Castellan, and Steppes Warlord/Royal Huntsman this month and we will make as many of the Barony's usual weekly events as possible. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
YIS to Namron and the Dream,
Barone Orlando and Baronessa Caterina

The first step is to contact someone from our group and let us know you are interested. The best person is our hospitaler . Then we can get together at a local practice or A&S night and see where your interests lay. There is more to the SCA than can be covered in a single website.
Events are our main activity and the culmination of all we do. They take place throughout the year. As it takes a little preparation for your first event, you should meet us at one of our weekly activities so we can help get you ready.
These are visible in the top corners of this page. The one that looks like it has a black tornado on it is the arms of the Barony and the one with the white wings is the arms of our Canton.
Here is an SVG version of our baronial arms (9380 bytes) and one of our civil ensign (1496 bytes). A full vector version created by Master Finnican is available here. These are graphic files that can be smoothly scaled to any size and most modern browsers can view them. Anyone from Namron can display the civil ensign and it is very distinctive for marking a campsite as belonging to someone from Namron.
