I started meeting people in the SCA sometime in 1974 and started attending local meetings, but my first event was Crown Tourney in Rivenstar in 1975.  I helped in the kitchen that evening and have enjoyed feast prep ever since.  I found the SCA a wonderful place to learn all kinds of hobbies that I add to continuously.  I've held a variety of local and regional offices, but mostly I was honored to be Baroness Rivenstar for 29 years.
