Not only that, we let our geek flag fly proudly! This is because it’s an hand-sewn, historically accurate 9th century reproduction silk embroidered flag, hand-painted and colored with natural era-accurate dyes, and hoisted on a hand carved alder pole with 100% correct Norse runic script burned into the handle by the finest artisans in the world. Oh yeah, buddy we’re geeks. We’re geeks with armor, swords, axes, and arrows on horseback.
Being a geek in modern times, typically means you’re just tremendously enthusiastic about something. SCAdians are certainly enthusiastic, and consider sharing our special brand of geek-culture with anyone interested.
