We get together as a shire for a variety of purposes, both serious and fun:

Populace Meetings

We meet once a month, typically on the third Wednesday, and usually in a public place, such as the library. We welcome any and all who would like to learn more about the SCA and the Shire of Rokeclif at these meetings. For more information about our next meeting, check our local calendar.

No reservation is needed, but if you would like to talk to someone in advance and get directions, a little background and perhaps some loaner garb, contact any Shire officer.

Note: Meeting minutes from January 2005 to the most recent meeting are online.

Practices and Work Sessions (a.k.a. “moots”)

We gather at the library (usually LaCrosse Main Branch) for a Research Night on the first Wednesday of most months. This is an opportunity to learn more about the middle ages, in preparation for the making of projects, garb, period food, period fighting… whatever we are interested in. Frequently we bring our own librarian.

The second Wednesday of each month is usually an A&S Night, in which we learn about a specific aspect of the middle ages or SCA culture. This is a moveable feast. The location should be announced in the shire’s Yahoo email group (Rokeclif) or on the Rokeclif facebook page.


We also meet to present demonstrations, or demos, for schools, community groups, and special events. If you are interested in having us come to your event/organization/school for a demo, please contact any officer. We are always grateful to have out-of-Shire SCA folk help out at demos, but please contact us in advance, so we can look for you at the site.

SCA Events

We also have a presence at most of the events in our immediate region. Be sure and check our local calendar and the Kingdom of Northshield Events Calendar for more fun things in our region that you might like to attend.  SCA Events generally require a “site fee” and clothing appropriate to a person living before 1600.  Contact any officer if you need more information about an event, or a ride.
