Our upcoming Quest article is "SCA Demonstrations: Favorite Moments."

Known to many SCA folk affectionately as "demos", the Society Seneschal's Handbook, Appendix E, describes these particular interactions between Society members and the modern world at large as "…an organized educational effort to teach and/or display activities of medieval interest in general, and SCA interest in particular, to the general public." These events can be prime tools for attracting interest and recruiting new members. But they also can be a way for Society members to give back to their local communities, and to share those simple but magical moments of learning, fun and companionship that are our game at its best.

Whether your barony staffs a booth at your county fair, your shire participates in your university's Renaissance Weekend, or your warband is known for visiting the local middle school during their yearly study unit on the Middle Ages, share your favorite demo moments. Send them (in 300 words or less) to by September 23 and they may be included in the 4th Quarter 2019 Issue of Tournaments Illuminated.
