The Confraternity is pleased to announce that we will be offering assistance to those who wish to attend a Market Day at Birka (24-26 January in Manchester, NH).
Anyone who would like to attend, but finds the cost difficult is invited to contact us at GreenStagSCA@gmail.com or by Facebook private message.
Those who are willing and able to contribute toward the Confraternity’s mission are most welcome as well and may contact us in the same manner.
We are pleased to introduce the Confraternity of the Green Stag, a charitable group composed of participants in the East Kingdom of the Society for Creative Anachronism, operating as a private association unaffiliated with the SCA, Inc.
Our mission is to offer financial assistance to those in our Society who find that cost is preventing them from attending our events. We firmly believe that enabling additional people to attend events is beneficial to our Society and hope to bring more people in to share the enjoyment we take in this hobby of ours.
Our first round of assistance will be offered to gentles attending East Kingdom Twelfth Night, to be held on January 4 in the Crown Province of Østgarðr. If you would like to attend this event but find the cost prohibitive, please write to us at GreenStagSCA@gmail.com with a brief explanation of what financial assistance would mean to you and the degree of assistance that you are requesting: the number of people in your party, whether you have an SCA membership card, and if you would like to stay for the feast.
Please get in touch with us before registering for the event. When an individual is approved to receive assistance, we will notify them of the decision and work with them to have their reservation paid for. They will check in on the day of the event as usual. The Confraternity’s involvement will be entirely confidential and event staff will not be told that the reservations were paid for by the Confraternity.
If any gentle would like to contribute to this effort, you may contact us at GreenStagSCA@gmail.com to pledge your financial support to this campaign.
If the spirit of this endeavor appeals to you and you would like to volunteer to assist us in the operations of the Confraternity, please contact us about joining our committee.
In sevice to the East and to our Dream,
— The Confraternity of the Green Stag
