The SCA does not seek to recreate the conflicts of the Middle Ages. However, these conflicts shaped the cultures of the era and led to some really unique fighting styles. It's also a lot of fun.
Members of our Society volunteer to marshal activities. The SCA has a rigorous training and authorization system overseen by dedicated marshals to insure safety.
Please note, all practice time are subject to change so see Calendar or Google Group and Facebook for up to date info.
|Armored Combat||Rapier||Thrown Weapons||Target Archery|

While the bow and arrow are the mainstays of the
shooting range, in the SCA archery includes any "assisted
throw" like the atl atl.
Marshal: Baroness Sean
There are other activities that Noiregarde doesn't current have marshals to for.
|Equestrian||Combat Archery||Siege Weapons|
SCA Equestrian activities are based on training
techniques, largely target related, that a noble would have learned in part of
joisting training. Actual joisting is not currently allowed in Northshield.
This combines target archery and armored combat,
where fully armored specially equiped archers aid in melees.
With an emphasis on safety, this is exactly what it sounds like; recreations of
siege engine and other machines of war. These are mostly used at large
events with massive melees.
