We get together as a shire for a variety of purposes, both serious and fun:
We meet once a month, typically on the fourth Sunday at 4PM. We’ve been meeting in the “party room” at Skokke Towers in LaCrosse. Wisconsin, though we might show up in a park on occasion. 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: Some of our Meeting minutes are online.
Practices and Work Sessions (a.k.a. “moots”)
Research Night is often held at Bronislava’s place on the first Friday of most months (July, eh, maybe not). 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. Horrible Histories are an important part of the evening, as is food.
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.
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.
