Welcome to Storvik!

Posted on December 2, 2012
Greetings and welcome to the Barony of Storvik! I am the Baronial Chatelaine (or newcomer’s officer), and it is my job to answer questions, help you find resources, and otherwise help you get acquainted with the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). The SCA is a non-profit educational organization whose members’ research and attempt to recreate various aspects of life during the time period from 600 A.D to 1600 A.D. We try to immerse ourselves in various pursuits that existed pre-seventeenth century. Unlike many re-enactment groups, we do not “re-enact” period occurrences exactly as they happened but rather try to see what life was like. The Barony of Storvik is located throughout Washington, DC; Prince George's County, MD; and some parts of inside-the-beltway Montgomery County, MD. If you are interested in getting involved please contact me. If you just want to dive in, check out the Baronial calendar to see what's going on in the barony. See you there! Lady Sonya Flicker- Chatelaine of Storvik Lady Angeline Falconis - Knight Marshal of Storvik Signora Grazia Morgano - Archery Marshal of Storvik

The entrance to the church hall is on your left when you first turn into the parking - it's a set of black metal stairs leading up to a large brown wooden door; look for SCA signage.

We will be meeting at the Board and Brew in College Park. The B&B has some food, beverages and a ton of board games. We hope to have some good conversation with newcomers while playing some games. Since the B&B is an establishment that wants to make money, we will pay for the game fee for the first 7 newcomers. Hope to see some new as well as familiar faces.
