Which SCA branches Have Newsletters
Most SCA groups at all levels have their own newsletters. A typical branch newsletter will have the following information in them:
- Event announcements.
- The “regnum
- Articles of interest to the SCA community. Examples include period recipes, garment construction techniques, articles on historical events or people, etc.
- Kingdom newsletters will sometimes print official notices to the populace. These are often required by Corporate policy and governing documents. Examples include changes to kingdom law and banishments.
- Kingdom newsletters will also periodically print SCA membership applications, kingdom event registration forms and waivers.
SCA branch newsletters run the gamut from simple black and white pamphlets to extravagant four-color glossy paper printings. The official SCA corporate newsletter is the Tournaments Illuminated, which is published quarterly.
