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!

Vatavian Weekly Herald

We have heard lots of fabulous ideas bantered around for the recruitment displays, or fondly called newcomer display box competition. This is part of the ongoing Medieval Olympic games series. The shadow boxes for the recruitment displays. The backing board will be foam core which will ease attaching things inside the box as needed. Each group will receive one box to design and decorate as they choose. The items may be newly made, or from previous use. Because of the quantity and quality of work dedicated to this display we have postponed the unveiling and judging until April Populace meeting April 21st. If you are not involved with your group's entry, it is not too late to join in the fun. Contact your seneschal for more details. We are all so very excited to see what each group has come up with.

This month's Populace meeting will include a roundtable discussion for ideas to plan a blow out reunion event for the Barony and our surrounding friends. Add your voice to the discussion. What have you been longing to do since the plague set upon us? What would you do to make it a great party?

Deputies, Deputies, Deputies, We need your help, there are many offices that do not have a Deputy. These positions can be very helpful to ensure that no one person carries the burden of office alone.
