SCA fighters stop traffic in Atenveldt

Rim Country (Pine, Arizona) rocked recently with the sound of sword striking armor when members of the SCA brought their game to the Pine-Strawberry Senior Center for a weekend tournament. Max Foster of the Payson Roundup covered the event.

From the article:

"Drivers on the Beeline Highway pulled over and stopped long enough to enjoy the looks, sounds and heraldry of the battles involving the medieval monarchs. The popular armed combat competitions featured armored knights swinging swords and maces, while defending themselves with hand-held shields."
