Heavy & Rapier Combat, Thrown Weapons & Archery
The SCA 50 Year Event will be a treasure trove of Martial Activities. Heavy Weapons & Rapier Activities will range from specialized Tournaments, Melees, Group Instruction, One on One Instruction, to simple Chat sessions in the Pavillion.
Walk along the Promenade through The Village and listen for the sounds of combat! Outdoor Heavy and Rapier activities will be taking place on The Field - just outside of the main buildings, where those who wish to observe or take pictures will have a full view, and those who wish to fight can get right into the thick of things. Some fighting activities will be taking place in the Tournament Building - where bleachers will be available for those who wish to have full view of special events, and a fenced off fighting area to keep the bouts in bounds. Other combat activities will be taking place in the Fight Pavillion, right next to the Tournament Pavillion. This venue will be available for continuous use for Heavy and Rapier events, pick ups (if the weather makes us go indoors for this), classes, and the like. Both Pavillions are available all day, every day!
Come visit The Range if your interests move you to Archery or Thrown Weapons. Further down The Promenade and past the Kingdom camping area, wander over to see what is happening in ranged activities. A variety of events and classes are scheduled for your learning and skill honing pleasure!
Below is the map showing the Heavy & Rapier fighting areas, and The Range, for ranged activities. There are the Tournament Pavillion, the Fight Pavillion, the Heavy Pick up field, the Rapeir Pick up field, and the Outdoor Field. The Range holds those Archery, Thrown Weapons, and Siege events.
