The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an international not-for-profit educational organization that is dedicated to the research and recreation of pre-17th century European History, with a particular focus on its practical applications in arts and sciences, including costuming, cooking, martial arts, dance, calligraphy and illumination, metalwork, archery and music (to name but a few!).
Gleann Abhann is one of nineteen kingdoms throughout the world. Our territories include: Louisiana, Mississippi, extreme western Tennessee, and most of Arkansas. Find a Local Group near you. Or visit the SCA website for more information.

Gleann Abhann is one of three Kingdoms currently in the test for using PayPal to pre-register for events and pay for gate fees. Since this is a new system and requires a couple of steps to comply with Paypal and SCA policies, we have some documents with instructions on how to use Paypal for these services. Please click the button on the right, just below the search box, labeled “PayPal Instructions” to see the documents in the Kingdom Library.
Any questions that you might have can be directed to our Exchequer at ten.n1422610510nahba1422610510nnael1422610510g@reu1422610510qehcx1422610510e1422610510. If you have any problems getting to the documents, contact the Webminister at ten.n1422610510nahba1422610510nnael1422610510g@ret1422610510sinim1422610510bew1422610510.
Please take a look at the new menu. I have moved all of the existing forms to the Forms menu item. Now you don’t have to dig through multiple menu levels to find the electronic form you need. I have also added a new form to allow anyone to easily send in an award recommendation to Their Majesties per Their request.
Also, the new event date reservation form is active. This one will let you reserve a date up to two years in advance for your group’s event. This reservation is only sent to the Calendar Deputy and not to anyone else. Be aware, though, that you will still need to fill out the event submission form when you are ready to have it posted everywhere with your flyer.
As always, if you find anything missing or have any suggestions about the site, just email me at ten.n1422610510nahba1422610510nnael1422610510g@ret1422610510sinim1422610510bew1422610510. I am always glad to get ideas and feedback.
If you have not already noticed, we have just updated to a new online library. This new library offers more features and a better interface than the one we have been using. With this new system, I also want to introduce our new Librarian, Lady Sarra Mary Heryngton. She is a deputy to the Kingdom Webminister and will be handling the management of our online documentation henceforth. With more and more people turning to our digital presence for information, this has become a very important part of our online goals. So from now on, if you need a document updated in the Library, send your files to ten.n1422610510nahba1422610510nnael1422610510g@yra1422610510bil1422610510 and Lady Sarra will be there to assist.
When submitting an event via the online form, you will notice a new check-box for creating a Facebook event as well. Checking this box will notify the Social Media Deputy to create an event on the Kingdom’s Facebook page that can then be shared. Remember, this does not take the place of having events published in the Ambassador or in the online Kingdom Calendar, but rather this supplements it since we realize many people schedule things around their Facebook calendar.
