A&S day at Rawlins Library
Sunday, September 30, 1 – 5pm

We have the community room (and tons of table space!) until 5pm. Stay the day or just drop in! Bring a project you’re working on (or having trouble with).

We’ll also be talking about and/or working on site tokens and plushies for Play Day and tank tokens.

If you need a fun and easy project to work on while we visit, I am bringing some!
(Are you new or just creeping on the Facebook, come check it out! If you hate us you can just say you have to return some videos at the library.)


See our Facebook group to keep up to date.

Don’t just read history, live it!

We are the Society for Creative Anachronisms (SCA) shire that covers all of central South Dakota. The SCA is a Living History group dedicated to learning about and living va-rious cultures from before 1600. We like to say we recreate the best parts of the Middle Ages and Renaissance without the bad. So no religious wars, chamber pots emptied out the window or Bubonic Plague! But lots of doing of art, music, cooking, sewing, metal craft, calligraphy, and combat.  While dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, you can experience tournaments, royal courts, feasts, and dancing.

We have other get-togethers throughout the month. Keep up to date by joining the Shire Facebook group.

All ages are welcome. The SCA is a great place to make friends and learn new skills. Find out more at http://welcome.sca.org.

What is the SCA like?

Want to get some more views of the SCA? Here are some great articles that will give you a glimpse into the best of what the SCA can offer.

Check out this article at Gamer-XP written by an SCA member it will help you get the proverbial “big picture”.

This blog article was written by someone who is not an SCA member. It captures the magic of a day at an SCA event.

A 5-minute article from NBC news about Pennsic in 2012.

Finally, here is a wonderful and long article about Pennsic – the largest of all SCA events. Pennsic is the Superbowl, Lollapalooza, Burning Man, and State Fair of the SCA all rolled into one glorious two week package.
