Blatha An Oir Online Activities

Gathering in the Age of Social Distancing

Or, the Spring/Summer of our Discontent

Community is one of the things that make the SCA great. While we are unable to meet in person in our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, it is important to stay in touch with each other and continue participating in SCA activities to the extent that we are able. Technology helps us by facilitating online meetings, and to share our projects and ideas.

Below find resources for activities in the kingdom, in the barony, and excellent classes held live and recorded.
