Potrero War was, by all accounts, a fun time. Congratulations to the newest member of the Order of the White Scarf of Caid, Dona Mora Ottavia Spadera!


This Week

The next Shire meeting is Tuesday, June 3rd, at 6:30pm at Todde and Mora’s. Rumor has it that some people might be bringing some period food to try…

The Shire has a Facebook Group, for those who are so inclined to discuss things there.

Your reward for reading all the way to the end is suggestions of what to bring to an SCA potluck (even if you don’t cook).
