SCAdians battle in Minot park

Frequent visitors to Oak Park in Minot, North Dakota must have been confused recently to hear the sounds of armored combat when members of the Shire of Midewinde put on their armor for a demo. Jill Schram of the Minot Daily News has the story. (photo)

About 25 shire members turned out to demonstrate what the SCA was all about by displaying their crafts and books, and being available to answer questions from the public. And yes, they provided a fighting demo too. "When I saw the tents and the fighting and the chivalry and all the fun they were having, I just knew I wanted to be a part of that," said Midewinde Seneschal Travis Andersen about his own introduction to the SCA.
