2014 Tanwayour Anniversary Tournament
The next Canton craft night will be on Tuesday, 16 September 2014 starting at 5:00pm at the Rancho San Diego Public Library.

There is plenty of room for you to bring your current project. There are lots of tables and chairs. If things are cramped where you live, this is the perfect place for you to spread out. For more information about this please contact our Arts & Sciences Officer or Deputy Arts & Sciences Officer.

The Library closes at 8:00pm, and we need to be packed up and gone by that time.

Champions of Tanwayour

What is the SCA?

We are the southern most canton in the Barony of Calafia which itself is the southernmost barony in Kingdom of CAID.

Our area comprises San Diego County south of Highway 94, but we welcome all who wish to become a "Tanweirdo" regardless of where you might happen to hang your hat.

Our council meeting is held usually the same day as brigade practise.

You may also join our Yahoo! Group where we discuss all our super-secret Tanweirdo stuff, like where we're going to hold our meeting. We also have a Facebook page. We use both because some people refuse to be Assimilated into Facebook.

The Canton of Tanwayour was first created in the early 1990s, and gained official status in 2000. Each year the Canton sponsors the Talanque Tourney for the Barony of Calafia. The Talanque Tourney honours Calafia's founding Baron. This event is combined with the Canton's Anniversary. The tourney has both heavy and rapier competitions.

We have a recipe page from some of our feasts.

Bacon roses. How can you go wrong?
