How to Find Your Local Group
The members you met at the festival are from the Eastern Ontario region (Barony of Skaeling Althing) where there are chapters in Ottawa (Canton of Caldrithig), Kingston (Canton of Greyfells) and the Winchester/Cornwall area (Canton of Harrowgate Heath). All of these groups are part of the Kingdom of Ealdormere, which covers most of Ontario.
There are also nearby groups in Quebec and New York State. If you are from Quebec or the east part of New York State and would like to find your local group you could look in the East Kingdom's list of local groups. If you live in the portion of New York state that is immediately south of eastern Ontario, or points west of there you could look in the Kingdom of Aethelmearc's list of local groups.
