NEWCOMERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME AT OUR WEEKLY MEETINGS! Medieval garb is never required.

The first Tuesday of the month is typically our business meeting. Other activities such as projects, dancing, workshops, archery, and thrown weapons occur throughout the month. Please check our Calendar for weekly meeting activities as well as events hosted by our shire or our neighbors, or join the email discussion list to have updates delivered to your inbox. You can also find us on Facebook. If you have an individual project to work on, you are always welcome to bring it, regardless of the scheduled activities.


Events

We host one event every quarter. In 2001 we hosted Saxon Summer for the first time at Chestnut Ridge Campground in Hubbard, OH. Next in 2005 we added our Winter Wassail to the schedule, a fun evening of food and friends held at the lovely Pioneer Pavilion set in Mill Creek Park. 2006 saw the beginnings of Spring Training, our event geared at preparing for the summer fighting, archery, and throwing season. And finally in November 2013 we added the Fall Bransle to our line-up of seasonal events, a day of dancing and leisure activities held at Christ Episcopal Church in Warren, OH.


Demos

Twice a year or so, we have a Demo. These are held outside of our regular meetings, usually on weekends. Sometimes they are requested by schools, libraries, etc. These are great ways for us to share what we know/love, and serve as valuable recruitment opportunities. See the Demo Page for more information.


Project Days

Twice a year we have a Project Day. These are held outside of our regular meetings, usually hosted by a member on weekends. One typically focuses on making something for the shire. The other focuses on making something for the individuals. The details are discussed at meetings and advertised on the email list.


Revels

Every month that we don’t have an event, demo, or project day we hold a Revel during the business meeting. We dress in garb, enjoy a potluck meal together, and dance. Everyone is encouraged to bring feast gear and participate in the activities, however it is not required.
