|Award & Office Badges|
I am Lord Sojourner.
I've been around the SCA for a quite a long time, with activity varying. These days I'm mostly known for being active in archery, but most of my enjoyment comes from trying new things, which I do with great regularity and generally more enthusiasm than skill.
Haarlem is a place you meet the world, although perhaps not as much so as Amsterdam (which is a couple of hours or so walk to the east).
Offices & Positions
Seneschal of Trollhaven (a now defunct canton of the Barony of the Bridge) - about three years in the mid-1980s.
You will often find me in a kitchen or on an archery field. Occasionally with an official position, but usually not.
In Case of Court
In general, I don't care. Tell me ahead of time or not, I'll be fine either way. If you tell my wife, she'll probably (try to) make sure I'm dressed nicely.
Mostly, though, I don't expect awards. After getting Arms, awards are for achievements in specific areas, which I don't generally have. But that's fine, because I learn something completely new with great regularity.
