Greetings, Vindheim! In case you don't already know them, here is an introduction to the Principality Minister of Children, Lady Dyrfinna Mikaelsdottir.
Lady Dyrfinna was introduced to the SCA by her husband, Duke Jason. He was really interested in the organization, and asked her to come check it out. Her very first event was Namron Protectorate in 2011, but she wasn't able to stay long because her oldest child was just a baby and she needed to get her child home. Her goals as Principality Minister of Children is to bring our children out from the corner. Let them see all the fighting and things that the SCA has to offer. Also, having a larger MoC force so we can do more for the kids who are the future of the SCA. Dyrfinna is working to encourage teen activities alongside the adults. The teens are in a category where they aren't kids anymore, but they aren't adults. She's working - and looking for ideas! - to keep our teens engaged and interested in the SCA.
One silly SCA fact about Dyrfinna is related to her original name in the organization: "I picked my 1st SCA name, Jasandra Drysdale. Once upon a time, (like over 15 years), I had a crush on this guy named Jason and so I just tweaked the name and created Jasandra. Yes, yes, I know, super cheesy. Kinda embarrassing. I think it's Jason's turn to have a cheesy name, maybe Janson? Hahaha!"
(JP and I think Jasfinna would be a great nickname for Jason!)

Notable Contributions or Accomplishments:

  • Entered very first A&S competition at Ansteorra 40th Year, submitting an item to the Newcomers A&S.
