Vulcan is considered to be the manufacturer of armor for the gods and heroes; he also made the thrones for the other gods on Mount Olympus.

Robin in the greenwood is … and he wants us to join him. On May 10 we will return to the grounds of the Limerick Bowmen for a fair celebrating the flight of the arrow. (This year, no snow!)
Archery activities will include a roving range (including, we hope, a running deer), royal rounds, practice areas and novelty shoots.
We will also have thrown weapons and fencing.
There are both a hall and an outdoor shelter for those not shooting to gather to visit, game, or ply their crafts. Artisans are encouraged to bring projects to work on and share. (Bring tables and chairs). Merchants are most welcome (no charge above gate fees), with merchants of goods related to Archery, Thrown Weapons and the Fence given preference if space becomes an issue.

This topic is not meant to start a fight, nor is it meant to be offensive. It turns out this is a very sensitive subject from both sides of the fence. Anyway, be it one on one heavy weapons or one on one fencing, if a man says NO I don't fight women, NO i don't fight girls, NO i don't fight females, should the woman be forced to accept no for an answer and simply walk away? ANSWER: Yes. Like it or not, but in every state in the US NO always means NO.

The beginning of a bright, spring day where the sun shines down on Smeewick is abruptly disturbed by the sounds of fighting. The once quiet town is being filled with the noise between two households with their fighting. The constant bickering has boiled over from mere words, to swords between the two households. Through the upcoming weeks both sides will be spreading words to their members to bolster their houses. So pay heed to the messengers that may come or to those that the may receive letters, for your household may be calling. Arm yourself to prepare for the battle ahead.

We invite you to make the pilgrimage into the mountains of Santa Barbara for a weekend of feasting and fighting, storytelling and merry-making. The Bard of Darach competition is open to all the bards. Join us for their wit and words. Armoured Combat and Rapier fighters will have tournaments along with other contests and activities for non-fighters.
Be sure to visit the reliquaries of the "saints of the SCA". Many a fighter owes their continuing intelligence to St. Helm de Freon the patron saint of armourers, and autocrats pray to St. Helia de Hands for last minute volunteers. Visit the roadside shrines to these and other "saints" on your way through our Canterbury Tales.
