March Business Meeting Date Change

The March business meeting will be held on March 13, 2019, instead of the usual third Sunday. The meeting will be held from 7:15pm-8pm at the same location as our regular fighter and A&S practice. There will be no social beforehand, and regular practice will commence after the meeting is finished. For location, please see the Recurring Activities page.

Archery Practice on hold

The normal site (Needwood Archery range) is currently undergoing renovations and is closed until at least December. As of the end of September, the archery marshals have been unable to find a safe alternate site in the shire or nearby.

We will announce when and where archery practice will resume.

July 5 Fighter Practice

Fighters of the Shire,
Due to a scheduling conflict, we are relocating fighter practice to an alternate, outdoor location just for next week (July 5th). It is a large backyard at a private residence so the address is not going to be posted publically.
A few parking spaces will be available in the driveway and there is street parking as well. Access to a bathroom will be available. Residents ask that attendees go around the house directly to the back yard rather than knocking on the front door. Look for SCA signs as you get close to the location.

For the address, please email
