Our group helps people come together to learn more about the past, with like minded individuals, who can help point you in the direction of learning and having fun. This knowledge we attain does in fact get used! We create a “Persona”, when we are at SCA sanctioned functions (events) we dress as our persona and some people go one step further and become their persona. This is done not only to help show what you have learned about your persona, but helps to immerse you in the medieval world, also known as the Dream. We strive to learn as much as we can, but also have fun doing it. If you sat in a history class and wished you could have been one of those knights in shining armor, throwing yourself into battle against your foes…welcome to the shire!
We hold regular practices in the 4 martial disciplines you can find in the SCA, with those being Archery, Thrown Weapons, Rapier and Armored Combat. If you wish to know more, or attend a practice you can contact the Seneschal and they will direct you to the person holding the practice. Alternatively, you can join our Martial Disciplines Facebook group and you’ll know all that’s going on, as it happens, as well as be able to comment on posts!
