-Ruadh came across the SCA via friend who had participated in the past. The topic intrigued her, and after seeking it out online, she attempted to make contact with the most local group to no avail. This prompted her to reach further afield in the broader area of the [[branches:​kingdom:​ealdormere|Kingdom]],​ where she was contacted in 2014 ([[scaism:anno_societatis|Anno Societatis]] XLIX [49])  by Sibylla of Glyndmere and Mjoll Ulfsdottir of the then nascent Canton of [[branches:​canton:​northgaetham|Northgaetham]] - the next closet group to where she resides. Mjoll sought what particulars of the SCA had interested Ruadh most and, with that information highly recommended that [[activities:​events:​fruits_of_our_labours|FOOL (Fruits Of Our Labour)]] be her and Aethelbert'​s first event. As their interests were keenly about learning pre-industrial technology and skills, FOOL was deemed a good match, as the event is all about the crafts and skills.+Ruadh came across the SCA via friend who had participated in the past.

-Wanting to make sure she had a good start of it, Ruadh made herself and her family garb, while Aethelbert made them leather long belts and guillie shoes (aka bog shoes). The FOOL event had everything Ruadh had hoped for: all the different skills of the time laid out for anyone to put their hand to. In short, she was hooked. Her excellency [[people:​barons_baronesses:​start|Baronesses]] Sybilla of [[branches:​barony:​ramshaven|Ramshaven]] was impressed by how much they got into taking on the garb of the time for their first event that she gifted Ruadh and Aethelbert copper Ramshaven rings, which they wear as much as they can ever since. ​+Wanting to make sure she had a good start of it, Ruadh made herself and her family garb, while Aethelbert made them leather long belts and guillie shoes (aka bog shoes).

 Ruadh'​s second event - Baron'​s Brouhaha - was most eventful, for as the night rolled into the wee hours of the morning, a mighty storm with gale-force winds blew down virtually every tent and pandemonium reigned. Because Ruadh happened to have stayed up that night, she managed to witness the whole thing as it unfolded. This prompted a song presented the following year,​[[https://​canadianmutt.wordpress.com/​2016/​04/​28/​the-storm-at-glyndmere-hall-the-song-backstory/​|"​The Storm at Glyndmere Hall"​]] to commemorate that event. Events since haven'​t been as adventurous,​ but all have been enjoyable, with great company to make it even better. ​ Ruadh'​s second event - Baron'​s Brouhaha - was most eventful, for as the night rolled into the wee hours of the morning, a mighty storm with gale-force winds blew down virtually every tent and pandemonium reigned.
