New to the Society for Creative Anachronism? All are welcome, whether just curious or seriously interested! This is not a Renaissance Faire strictly for entertainment, but living history that anyone can join. Costume is optional for first time attendees, although an attempt at pre-17th century clothing is appreciated. Click here to learn more about the SCA. Contact the Event Steward with questions. SCA, Inc. and Canton of Dun Traigh is not related in any way to Monty Python or The Holy Grail, but this event plays heavily on those themes!
Archery, SCA style!
The knowledge, construction, and safe use of pre-17th century style equipment are the goals of SCA archery. Modern equipment is permitted provided it meets our standards. Bring what you have, but be prepared for SCA marshals to inspect and perhaps prohibit use of your bow or arrows during our event. Ask to borrow—there is loaner equipment available and many members are willing to share what they have!

Andelcrag Baronial Championships
From the Baron and Baroness: We request that those gentles interested in serving as one of our Champions:
- Bring with you an arts or sciences project to demonstrate your involvement in that aspect of the Society. Your project does not have to be new and will not have an impact on the Champion competition EXCEPT in the case of the A&S Champion (in which case it WILL) IF you are seeking to become A&S Champion we expect you to take part in a martial activity in some fashion. That participation could be marshalling, bearing water, shooting target archery, throwing weapons, competing in armored or rapier combat or some other idea.
- Submit to us in advance OR bring with you on the day of the event a letter of recommendation from a member of the Baronial Populace describing your worthiness to be considered as a Champion.
Our expectations for our Champions are simple.
- Be Available ( we recognize family and RLW (real life wins) if you know you can only attend 1 event in 6 months maybe contend next year. But if you can reasonably attend events please come out and vie to be our Champions.
- BE NICE AND SAY PLEASE AND THANK YOU, AND ITS MY PLEASURE ALOT. (And mean it) Although maybe some consider this a lesson learned before kindergarten we want to emphasize its importance. Graciousness is not to be lost in our Barony.
- Do your best.
We want to thank everyone in advance for your participation and we look forward to a fun year with our Champions.
“Black Knight” Tournament in the spirit of the IOFL cross-over. Three rounds: first round is single-sword, second is single-sword off-hand, third is single-sword off-hand on-your-knees. Style is to be determined by the amount of entrants. Previous Champion Mateusz Kruchowski will be portraying the Black Knight. Marshal In Charge: Master Rijckaert vanUtrecht
Further information on Rapier, Archery and Arts & Sciences Championships will be posted as soon as it is available.
