The Kingdom of Gleann Abhann is a part of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA)

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 twenty 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.

Pay for Event Registrations with PayPal

Gleann Abhann is one of the Kingdoms allowed to use PayPal to pre-register for events and pay for gate /site registrations.

To fill out the Paypal Registration Form online, go to the event in the Kingdom calendar, and follow the link to the Paypal Registration Form which will be right below the flyer. Note that paypal registration is a multi-step process, to comply with Paypal and SCA Policies.

Any questions that you might have can be directed to our Exchequer (exchequer@gleannabhann.net) or our Paypal deputy (gappdeputy@gmail.com).

If you have any problems getting to the documents, please contact the Webminister at webminister@gleannabhann.net.

Navigation Changes and New Forms

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 webminister@gleannabhann.net. I am always glad to get ideas and feedback.

A New Library

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 library@gleannabhann.net and Lady Sarra will be there to assist.

Facebook Events and the Event Calendar

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.
