Summer Meetings & Fight Practices

Summer is in full swing and that means that Dernehealde’s meeting have moved to Southside Park (just off Richland Avenue on Dairy Lane).

Fight practices have also been moved to Tuesday evenings – starting around 6:00p.m. (for our adventurous few) or 7:00 p.m. for those who work/travel. The Business Meeting will start around 8:00 – ish.

Bring plenty of water and be prepared to have fun!

Southside Park is located off of Richland Avenue, on Dairy Lane. Looking at the map (at the right, click on thumbnail for larger image) if you are following US-33 to Route 682 exit, simply  follow the roundabout until you can exit onto Richland Ave. and then make the first right, this is Dairy Lane.

There is a sign for the Dairy Barn Arts Center. The parking lot for the first shelter house
(seen from Richland Avenue) is the first right on Dairy Lane. The large Dernehealde banner may be hanging on the shelter house, or there may be a group of fighters getting an early start on their practice.

Welcome to Dernehealde

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.
