Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA)            sca.org

The SCA is a Middle Ages and Renaissance living history and 
education group covering from the fall of the Roman Empire to 
roughly 1600.  It was founded in the 1960's in California, and 
has spread to cover much of the world, which is broken into 
kingdoms.  Our governing structure is based on the feudal system 
in Europe, with presiding royalty who win the right to rule by 
right of arms (through competition in tournaments).  

Kingdom of the West                  www.westkingdom.org

The West Kingdom, or Kingdom of the West, covers Northern 
California, Nevada, Alaska and the Far West (Japan and a few 
other areas in the Orient).  It is the oldest of the kingdoms.  A 
Kingdom is ruled by a King and Queen who win a Crown 
tournament.  West Kingdom has three reigns per year.

Principality of Oertha               oertha.westkingdom.org

The Principality of Oertha (pronounced Oh-ur-tha) is the division 
of the West Kingdom that covers all of Alaska.  A Principality is 
ruled by a Prince ad Princess, also chosen by right of arms.  Our 
Coronet tournaments happen in January and July, and the 
winners step up the day after the tournament, which is unique to 

Shire of Earngyld                                              earngyld.org

The Shire of Earngyld (pronounced Earn-guild or Erin-guild) 
covers all of Southeast Alaska, from Yakutat/Icy Bay south to the 
Canadian border.  Shires don't have presiding royalty of their 
own, so they are ruled in essence by the populace, or the 
people who live there.  Residents of Earngyld are invited to join 
us for business meetings in Juneau on the second Tuesday in 
January, April, July and October, and to share opinions by email 
or phone.  (We are working on a way for Earngyld members 
outside of Juneau to participate in business meetings by video 
access.)  Earngyld also keeps a yahoogroup to keep everyone up 
to date on events and news.  To join, send an email to 
Earngyld-subscribe at yahoogroups dot com.
