Barony of Vatavia

The Barony of Vatavia is a regional group within the Kingdom of Calontir.   We are members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, better known as the SCA.  Vatavia is home to Wichita, Kansas, and the greater surrounding area.  We have members from as far away as Peabody, Pratt, and Winfield!

The SCA is an international organization renowned for its dedication towards researching and recreating aspects of the Middle Ages, not as they were, but as we would have liked them to have been.  The SCA mostly concentrates on studying European History, but many members have chosen to study the Middle East and explore the interaction between Europe and Asia during this period.

If you are unfamiliar with the Society for Creative Anachronism, check out the Society's Introduction Guide for an explanation about the organization and what it is we do.

If you are already familiar with how we do things, great!  Our site provides additional information about the events and people of interest within Vatavia, and you are always welcome to come join us Wednesday evenings at Make ICT.  We always have something going on - be sure to check out our Interest Groups page for more information and directions to many of our activities!

Please note that you need not be a member to participate in any of our activities. If you have any questions, or would like help getting involved, please visit our Chatelaine page or contact our Chatelaine directly.  We'd love to hear from you!

Greetings unto the industrious populace of Vatavia!

Valor XXXIX officially begins this Friday at 5pm. There is much work that has been done and will need to be done in order to make ready for our visiting guests this weekend.

Thank you to our event stewards, Honorable Lady Maria Arosa de Santa Olalla and Lord Yurik Gronson, for the effort and care you have given this event over the past year. Thank you to everyone who has helped with largesse, prizes, calligraphy & illumination, site tokens, food prep, site cleanup, activity planning and coordination, etc.

We will be meeting at Lord Yuriks residence on Thursday evening to load up the trucks with everything that is needed for the event. We will then unload everything on site and start setting up on Friday morning. If you have some free time, we would appreciate the help.

We would like to remind everyone that camping is on a first come, first serve basis starting at 5pm when site opens. The only exception to this being for those individuals (this does not include groups!) who help with site setup. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Its going to be a big, cozy Valor!

Honorable Lord William Douglas is helping to coordinate food and spirits for the parties on Saturday and Sunday evening. If you would like to help out or contribute please let him know!

We well understand the draw of the festivities of Valor, the tourneys, competitions and parties that are happening throughout the weekend. But no event runs itself. We ask once more that each of you play the part of being a good host. Were not asking you to give up your entire weekend, but a few hours of your time and efforts will go far in supporting our event and showing Calontir and Ansteorra an excellent time.
