embers of the SCA attempt to recreate and enjoy firsthand the experience of the medieval combatant.  They compete in organized competitions with a variety of weapons, with an emphasis on the pageantry of the medieval tournament, as well as full-scale battles.   All combatants are dedicated to a high sense of personal honor and the pursuit of the ideal of chivalry as exemplified in the medieval knight of story and myth. 

SCA martial activities include:

  • Armored Combat
  • Rapier Combat (Fencing)
  • Target Archery
  • Combat Archery
  • Thrown Weapons
  • Equestrian Activities, and
  • Youth Combat

Members of our Shire who participate in armored combat regularly gather for fighter practice.  Fighter practice is usually held, weather permitting, at 2 pm at Kees Park, Highway 28 East, Pineville, LA 71360.  Please feel free to contact our group’s Knight Marshal for more information:  knightmarshal@vogelburg.gleanabhann.net
