Greetings Unto Our Populace,
It is with a heavy heart that we write this month's missive. As many of you know, Ansteorra lost one of its treasures this weekend. Terick was our youth Champion many times for Namron and Skorragardr and each time he would follow us around carrying a sword just like the adult champions. He always greeted us with a smile, asked if we wanted him to carry something, and he was always there. Terick went early on with us this year to Gulf Wars to help set up the Namron land. He also entertained the small children all week in camp with a smile and on Friday, he helped with the Rose's breakfast running backand-forth to camp more times than we can count to pick up things that we had forgotten. We were very much looking forward to watching Terick grow up in the SCA. We were looking forward to him following in his father's footsteps and becoming a knight and later a king. We are saddened beyond words at this loss.
When something tragic like this happens, what always is a shining light in the darkness is how the members of our populace respond. You all have humbled us with your outpouring of love and support for Owen and Genevria. You have made donations of food, clothing, and money. You have donated your time to go and help with the clean up effort, to make food for the family so that they may have some comfort of a home-made meal, and to just be there to give a hug or lend an ear. We in the SCA are a family and we hold each other dear and that is what keeps us playing in this game. Thank you all for what you go. We cannot tell you enough how much you mean to us.
On a lighter note, Medfaire quickly approaches. Please come out and support our biggest recruitment event of the year.
Also, Beltaine is just around the corner and with it, the investiture of our Heirs HL Kyna and Lord Andrew. We look forward to a wonderful event and to seeing our children invested.
Until next time, please be good to each other and tell your loved ones that you love them every day.

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.
Here is an SVG version of the arms of the canton (12589 bytes).
