We are so happy that you are considering joining our group. His Excellency has been a part of the SCA since 1998 and I have been playing since 2007.
We thoroughly enjoy this hobby and have even involved our son in it as well. This organization is very family oriented and there is something for everyone.
We have many different types of combat to get involved in, as well as many types of arts and crafts, if that is your thing.
We also have people that sing, dance and tell wonderful stories. There is ALWAYS something new to explore and many new friends to be made!
WELCOME TO THE MODERN MIDDLE AGES!
