Long time no post, and admittedly I'm not all that big on social media anyways, but I've got to mention a recent hobby I'm going into. After years of interest and reaching a level of fitness that has provided the confidence to go for it, I've started going to practices for the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Many of you may have heard of them or even seen them, but in short, they are much like attending a renaissance faire. What attracted me was the fighting end of it, though they have so much more to offer than combat (metalworking, Brewing, Sewing, and more). I stepped in this last Wednesday at Allied Gardens Park to test the waters. Not only were they an incredibly welcoming group of people, but had provided armor for me to practice while teaching me the basics. I strongly recommend you check them out. You can find more out online at http://calafia.org.
While it does come with some investment regarding rocking your own gear, it was fun, a solid workout, and most of all a great time with good folk.
