The Shire of Dernehealde

The Shire of Dernehealde is the Athens County (Athens), Ohio chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. We are centered on the campus of Ohio University. The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century predominantly Western Europe. This is accomplished in part by events where members can participate in a variety of activities – from tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, and more. Much of the experimentation and camaraderie is accomplished at our regular weekly meetings.

Directions to: Regular Meetings (Fall-Spring), Regular Fighter Practices (Fall-Spring), Craft Nights, Summer Meetings, Summer Fighter Practices

The following professional video, SCA-The Dream from Raiya Corsiglia, gives a glimpse at the allure the SCA has for so many of us.

Fall Semester 2017 Schedule

Our weekly meetings, on campus, will start Tuesday, August 29, 2017 at 8pm in Grover E304. We have the room reserved every Tuesday from 7 to 10 pm. **This is a different room than last semester.**

Sunday fight practices: Morton 201 from 1-5pm!

Tuesday night fight practices will be in front of Walter Hall (outside of Grover) in the Punchcard Park from 6pm until 7:45. This will hopefully allow fighters and fencers to gear down and get to the meeting on time at 8pm. These practices will continue until it gets dark too early to fight safely.

For craft nights we have Grover W125 reserved from 7-10pm every other Thursday, starting Thursday, September 7, 2017.

Thank you, Ashley, for securing our rooms for our various activities.
