What is the SCA?

The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a 501c3 organisation dedicated to the study and re-enactment of the ideal parts of the Middle Ages. (Excluding all the plagues, diseases, poor dentistry, and creative methods of torture.)

The SCA is an international organisation currently comprised of 20 Kingdoms. Kingdoms are subdivided into Baronies and Shires. Baronies can have semi-independent areas called Cantons.

The Canton of Tanwayour is the southern most canton in the Barony of Calafia and is the southernmost barony on the mainland of Kingdom of CAID.

Our area comprises San Diego County south of Highway 94, but we welcome all who wish to become a "Tanweirdo" regardless of where you might happen to hang your hat.

Our council meeting is held usually the same day as brigade practise at the location stated above.

You may also join our Facebook page where we post announcements and other items of interest.

The Canton of Tanwayour was first created in the early 1990s, and gained official status on 15 April 2000. Each year the Canton sponsors the Talanque Tourney for the Barony of Calafia. The Talanque Tourney honours Calafia's founding Baron. This event is combined with the Canton's Anniversary where the Canton's champions are determined. The tourney has armoured, rapier, and unarmoured competitions.
