I figured a good place to start would be to introduce ourselves like we did at the last Clan Meeting at Pennsic. I'll go first and encourage you do to the same.

So let's see. I like lists so....

My name is Gabriel de la Vega / Genjiro Tenmakutsukuri.
I have a Japanese persona in case it wasn't obvious =)
I live in the East Kingdom
I am the Bluefeather webmaster.
I have been camping with Blue Feather at Pennsic for the last 6 years and would consider myself a member of the Clan for at least that long.
I make and sell yurts for most of a living.
My other interests include Photograpy, Web Design, Graphic Design, Japan, Mongolia, , Shakuhachi, Woodworking, Bamboo, Archery, Martial arts.

I'd say thats a start.

How about the rest of you? Introduce yourself!

Hey everyone. I'm Brandon, that is my mundane name, and as of yet I do not have a persona.
I got introduced to the event at Pennsic 34, and haven't missed one, nor do I intend to if at all possible. I am not a member of the SCA though.

I currently live in AEthelmarc, aka NY state.

My interests include the fire performance arts, massage, martial arts, cooking, blacksmithing, camping, kayaking, and plain old post-o'dark thirty Pennsic social interaction.

This past year was my first to camp with the Clan Blue Feather encampment, and I hope for many more.

Hi all, I'm Lord Christopher Jameson, or just "Christoph"... My persona is technically early 16th century English but I tend to dress in 14th-century clothes lately because they're more comfortable.

I'm an Easterner; I live in the Barony of Bhakail (otherwise known as Philadelphia, PA.) I'm married to Lord Cal Urso, so when I make it to Pennsic, I camp in Camp Urso.

I am sometimes a scribe. Usually I'm just lazy. I've been in the SCA for something like 14 years now and am in a "less-involved" phase.

I'm glad to see this forum, and hope it takes off!

I'm Dan Hoffman, Gabe's slave labor when a yurt needs a buildin'. I have unfortunately been unable to attend Pennsic the past 2 years, and I hope to break that tradition this year. Nice job on the forums Gabe!! Special thanks to Joshua for making my username on these forums a no brainer.

'lo! It's me, Joshua. I've been in the SCA for about 20 years or so, and in the Clan for almost as long. I haven't missed a Pennsic since my very first. With a LOT of help from a LOT of great people I run the Clan Blue Feather encampment at Pennsic each year, and I organize the annual Clan Blue Feather Ball and Fashion Cotillion there as well.

I originally hail from the Barony of Bhakail in the East, spent some time in Calafia in Caid, and am now residing in the nether regions of Atlantia, but we'll be heading back to Caid soon enough. I used to do calligraphy, but haven't practiced in years. I also used to go to local events, but my primary focus has been Pennsic for the last few years (although certain friends in other places are encouraging me to expand my SCA events calendar).

I'm starting a little business pimping my artistic friends at sci-fi conventions around the country, as well as promoting my partner's custom doll business, because my Mundanian job is nice, but mostly dull.

My partner's in the SCA 'cause I told him he had to if he wanted to see me during the month of August, but he's getting into it almost as much as I am. I love my Blue Feather family 'cause they're just as screwball as I am.

I spend way too much time online and playing video games. I'm a huge geek, and even help run local sci-fi conventions (including Gaylaxicon, the annual LGBT sci-fi/fantasy/horror/comics/gaming con).

Finally, this is my very silly device:

Dziuginte here. I'm a mid 14th century Lithuanian free woman farmer. I sew my own clothes, make my own dyes, make my shoes, make my armor, make my simple jewelry so I'm lovely and make felt to keep me warm because this is what farmers like me do. You'll find me on the battle field dying on the shield wall or on the Youth Combat List training young fighters. My teenage sons and I travel the East Kingdom and beyond in a black bus full of gear. We sleep in a pretty darn period camp and eat terrible food. Right now, we're building a Samarai Heavy list kit and we're about to set up a forge. Mundanely, I'm a handy woman/gardener. I joined the SCA about 5 years ago and it ruined my love life. I don't care cuz this is FUN! I'm glad for the Blue Feather community!

I'm Gaston, an early period southern European who chose his period for the garb--shorts, short sleeved tunic, sandals--which is comfortable in the heat of a Calontir summer.

Current projects include some kitchen boxes for Lilies war, finishing a prototype pavilion, turnsole shoes, new sandals (they wear out) and making a dent in the pile of linen on the living room chair.

Looks to be a busy winter.
