WELCOME TO THE SHIRE-MARCH OF GRIMFELLS, WELCOME TO THE SCA!
If you want to experience medieval combat, siege weaponry, equestrian events, archery, singing, dancing, sewing, weaving, pottery, metal working, wood working, scribal arts, and more, you have come to the right place! You have found the SCA!
The SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) is a worldwide organization with over 30,000 registered members who enjoy researching and recreating the arts and skills of the medieval world, that is, pre-17th century world. In the SCA, the Known World is divided into 20 kingdoms by geography. We are in the kingdom of Calontir, which includes Northwest Arkansas, all of Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska. Within the kingdom of Calontir are baronies, cantons and shires. We are the Shire March of Grimfells, the southernmost shire of the kingdom of Calontir.
If you are reading this, you have clearly found our website! Please peruse it; it will give you an idea of who we are and what we do. Be sure to check out our Newcomers Resources too.
Next, don’t be shy, come meet us!
A great place to meet most of the shire is Fighter Practice, which is held every Wednesday night, starting at 6:00 (see website calendar for specifics). You do not need to be a fighter to attend fighter practice. Many of us congregate at practice to watch the fighting, but also to catch up with everyone, meet new people, etc. You do not need to dress in medieval clothing to attend practice.
You may want to attend our Populace Meeting; this is our business meeting (see website calendar for date and place) where we discuss upcoming events and activities. The meeting includes a potluck dinner, starting around 6:00, and the business part of the meeting starting at 7:00.
There are many ongoing and periodic activities such as Stitching night, Bardic night, and Archery practice, to name a few. Check out the calendar for details or email our Chatelaine (Newcomer's Liaison) using the form below.
And seriously, don’t be shy – we were all new once and remember what that feels like.
