The SCA stands for The Society for Creative Anachronism.

The SCA is a world-wide organization that is focused on recreating and exploring the arts, sciences, skills and martial arts of pre-17th century Europe. Members meet at practices and events to share their knowledge and to have fun! There is a wide variety of interests within the SCA including but not limited to: Fencing, Calligraphy, Archery, Weaving, Needlework, Martial Arts, Equestrian Arts and many others.

Think that sounds interesting?

Are you asking  "How do I get started with the SCA?"

It's super easy!

Just contact our Hospitaller and he'll be able to help you with that!

Or, you can drop by our A&S meetings or a Fight Practice (you don't have to fight!) to meet us and get some first hand experience with what the SCA is about.

We're really a friendly bunch! :)
