Year of the Society

"Ummmm....what Society year is it?"   "What A.S. was it when that happened?" 
These are just a couple of  the more commonly heard questions at SCA events. 
Many times coming from me.  In an attempt to help my poor memory keep things straight 
and possibly as an aid to other gentles in matching  up the Anno Societatis 
( Latin for "Year of the Society") date with the modern date, 
we supply the following information.  

Note that the Society year runs from May 1 to April 30.
