Welcome to the SCA 50 Year Website
Event Logo
SCA 50 year is upon us!  What started out as a backyard party in 1966 has grown into an international organization with over 30,000 paid members, and perhaps that many more unpaid participants.  In celebration of the 50 years of living history, the Society for Creative Anachronism will be hosting a 50 Year Celebration in Danville, Indiana, June 17-27, 2016.  With a little under a year's time remaining the Steward's team is in full swing planning and preparing for visitors from around the world.  Look for this icon in your local newsletter for information.

We wish to invite the Known World to an event that brings back all the great things you joined the SCA for.  The very best of tournaments will be hosted by the Marshal teams, Equestrian activities, Archery, Thrown Weapons, Arts and Sciences Demos and Classes, Balls, Feasts Historical Displays and more.  Many of the founders will be there, and there will be opportunities to meet with them.  

Come join us for the very best that you remember. 

Registration is open now!  Registering early helps us finance the event, and will allow you to gain access to the scheduling tool that is currently being built.  With this tool you will be able to plan and print your personalized schedule of events, classes and volunteer spots.  (We hope to make this phone accessible).

Registration is done as a ‘Family’ which is a way of grouping a single bill together.  Yes, you can have a “Family” of one if you are paying by yourself.  Families are associated to Groups which are associated to Land allotments.  It sounds a little confusing, but the system will walk you through it.

Finally, the Society Exchequer, Treasurer and BoD have agreed to allow us to use the currently experimental PayPal process to accept Credit Cards transfers from PayPal accounts.  The process as it is set up may seem cumbersome, however it is in place to protect your privacy, and prevent PayPal from distributing your email to spam lists.  To do this, you will interact with the PayPal deputy, and in turn, they will interact with PayPal.  It takes an extra step, but it allows the use of credit cards and PayPal money transfers.
