Toowoomba meets the Middle Ages

"Ralph Picton loves to dress up, play swords, eat with his hands and learn about the lords and ladies of days gone by," writes Megan Masters in a piece for the Toowoomba Chronicle (Queensland, Australia) about one of the members of the local SCA group. (photos)

In her article, Masters discusses the October 16, 2011 public demo where "the Cabarlah sports grounds are transformed into a medieval kingdom for an SCA open day."

In a follow-up article, Laura Hunt, who attended the event as a reporter for the Chronicle, interviewed group founder Ralph Picton, about his participation in the SCA.
