So what’s this AMA thing?

AMA = Ask Me Anything

I think that’s a good way to describe the Sergeantry Trials for
someone who’s not familiar with them, as the candidates will be
tested not only on their martial prowess but on a wide variety of
medieval knowledge including dance, games, bardic and heraldry.

I also hope that we’ll be able to learn from each other
throughout the weekend. If you have something you want to share,
offer a one-on-one lesson or a pick-up class. If you see someone
doing something cool, ask them about it! While this is already a
part of SCA culture, it can sometimes get lost at events where we
are either entirely focused on our own discipline or have schedules
that are so full that we never get back to the thing we wanted to
learn, despite our best intentions.
