With the ending of Ohio University’s Spring semester, we are now meeting at Richland Avenue Park. If you’re not sure where the park is located, we have a handy map with directions.
Fight practices – both armored and rapier – are before the meetings, and after the business meeting has concluded. Sunday fight practices are on hold, unless the Marshal has enough people requesting and committed to showing up for practices to be held.
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.
The following professional video gives a glimpse at the allure the SCA has for so many of us.
