Practices & Meetings


New this year: season passes.

We are losing money on the fighting and archery practices due to inconsistent attendance and our low fees. We are going to make a season pass available to all fighters, fencers and archers. Those who choose to subscribe will benefit from a rebate of approximately 30% (vs paying per individual practice). Passes will cover admission to all of the practices (heavy fighting, fencing and archery), however they DO NOT include the loaner gear fees for archery.

There will be 3 season passes available for the year as follows:

September 1st to December 31st (15 practices) - $50
January 1st to May 31st (22 practices) - $75
June 1st - August 31st - (13 practices) - $45

Payment will be due in full at the first practice of the season. If payment is late, there will be no reimbursement for previous practices. Passes will not be pro-rated. There will be no partial refunds if a subscriber decides mid-season that they no longer wish to use their pass (with possible exceptions for extenuating circumstances, ie. medical reasons).

The marshals will maintain a list of subscribers that will be checked at each practice. Sign in will still be required.

In the unlikely event that practices can not take place (power outages, lack of marshals, etc.), partial refunds may be offered. Request for such refunds will need to be made in writing and will be evaluated by the Curia on a case-by-case basis.

Practices

Practices take place weekly. There is a single $5.00 weekly admission fee for fencing and heavy combat, whether you attend one or several nights. There is a single $5.00 weekly admission fee for archery plus an additionnal $2.00 for equipment rental. There is no admission fee charged for outdoor practices. Everyone is welcome!

Loaner gear may be available for rent on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please contact the officer in charge for more details. For heavy & rapier combat, a jockstrap is required.

Hello Fencers!

"When I was a boy I dreamt of being Robin Hood on one of the Merry Men's epic swashbuckling adventures. In my mind I was in the tower getting shot at by archers, vanquishing Guy of Gisborne in the forest and saving the lives of those who could not fight for themselves. Almost every later hero, from D'Artagnan to Zorro to Scaramouche owes a great debt to those Robin Hood tales of derring-do (daring to do). Even Mal, the anti-hero, picks up a sword at some point in his adventures.

Ever since, I always wanted a chance to pick up a sword "with the gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad" but without the bloodshed. The SCA has given me that chance, and I know my friends and I would love to share the love of steel with you. " - Don John Radburn
