How to Find Your Local SCA Group
The SCA has hundreds of local chapters; here's how to find the group nearest you.
Who can help you?
The primary contact point in every group is the "Seneschal", or group president. Some groups also have an officer whose job it is to assist newcomers; they are usually called the "Chatelaine", "Hospitaller", or "Castellan".
(When phoning an SCA officer, it's best to ask for them by their legal name, even if their SCA name is listed. Most of these people do go to work during the day, so please call after working hours, and before 10 p.m. (2200 hours) their local time.
Where are they?
The SCA divides our "Known World" up into kingdoms, which contain smaller chapters known as Baronies, Shires, and Cantons. These local groups organize and run SCA events, practices, and meetings. In order to get together with SCA participants in your area, you will need to contact someone from one of these groups.
How do I find them?
If you have trouble reaching someone in your local group, get in touch with the Kingdom Chatelaine or Seneschal. You can find their contact info on the Kingdom Officers' page (sometimes called "Regnum" or "Witan") on the kingdom website.
When all else fails -- contact the Corporate Office
You can call or write to the central offices of the SCA Inc. and ask them for help contacting the nearest SCA group. If you are in the USA, include your 5-digit ZIP Code. If you send a letter, it would be helpful to supply a self-addressed stamped envelope.
