The Canton of Dun Traigh went inactive as an official branch of SCA, Inc. on December 31, 2018.
Our group dwindled to four active members, and while we each personally maintain our membership and current activity, we did not see a future for maintaining a separate branch organization. The Canton has always been a sub-group of the Barony of Andelcrag, itself a group within the Kingdom of the Middle — Andelcrag is the official SCA, Inc. branch for the Michigan counties of Mason, Oceana, Muskegon, Ottawa and Northwest Allegan county.
The former members of the Canton have formed an unofficial “household” group, the Hamlet of Dun Traigh. Anyone living in the former lands of the canton is welcome to be a part of our hamlet. The name and heraldry of the former canton reverts to the Midrealm, and will continue to be displayed in Andelcrag without the laurel wreath, in honor of the Hamlet and the area’s past.
The Hamlet will be holding our usual weekly practices and meetings in the Muskegon area, as citizens of (and reporting to) Andelcrag. We hope to also participate in activities and educational demonstrations in other areas previously covered by the canton; we feel it is important for a large barony such as Andelcrag to bring the SCA the all lands, even where no canton exists.
