Fighters from Canton of Glaslyn in the Kingdom of Ansteorra faced off recently for a practice in North Lakes Park, to the delight of spectators. Reporter Candace Carlisle of the Denton (Texas) Record Chronicle was on hand for the story. (photos and video)

Carlisle spoke to several of the group's fighters, learning a little about fighting in the Society for Creative Anachronism. One was John of Glaslyn, who joined the SCA in order to fight. John enjoys battlefield scenarios. “That’s what it’s all about, going in for the charge,” he said. “It’s a rush.”
