Olaf Bjornssen ready for battle at Windkeep demo

Lindsey Erin Kroskob of the Wyoming Tribune Eagle spent a day at the recent Superday Festival in Cheyenne, and found herself drawn to an armored combat demo by members of the Shire of Windkeep. She interviewed Olaf Bjornssen (Martin Emmons) about his involvement with the SCA.

"We try to stress those things that aren't in society to speak of -- honor and chivalry," Bjornssen said. "We try to teach our members that their word is their bond and a handshake is their deal." The fighter went on to prove his prowess, winning two of four bouts in tournament combat.
