We meet up every Thursday at 7:30 to 10:00 at the Woodland Mall, at BG Athletics’s gym!
To get there, park as if you were going to the theater, and as you’re facing the main doors the gym door will be about a hundred yards to your right, behind some pine trees (detailed directions).
The Marche Arms will be posted to make the door easier to find!
We will be following all local, state, SCA corporate, and Middle Kingdom rules and guidelines that are currently in place due to COVID-19. As of October 13th, to attend any SCA event (including our weekly meetings) you will need to furnish either a full vaccination record or a negative COVID-19 test from the last three days. Please refer to the Midrealm CovidSafe Procedures page for details.
Note: For the foreseeable future the Middle Kingdom is at Tier 2, meaning that we will be wearing masks while we are inside. If the weather holds, we’ll likely be holding the meetings outside, but please remember a mask regardless.
See you there on Thursday!
We are a group of the Society for Creative Anachronism, an organization dedicated to the study and re-creation of pre-17th century Europe and its connected cultures. The organization has several different areas activities that we study and re-create.
Martial activities include armored combat, rapier combat, thrown weapons, archery, and even siege weapons. All of which are carefully marshaled (refereed) and trained using activity-appropriate armor (personal protection) and weapons to maximize safety of the participants.
Arts & Sciences include nearly any craft or skill that would have been used on a regular basis to create items such as spinning, sewing, leather working, blacksmithing, cooking, embroidery, bead making, calligraphy, illumination, music, dancing, and many, many others.
Protocols, Service, and Niceties are what creates the basic atmosphere of the SCA and its activities. Bowing to the the King and/or Queen, carrying things for royalty, helping your camping neighbor or group set up their tent(s), and the “thank-yous” for the assistance help to make the SCA a great place to spend ones free time.
The Canton of the March of the Marshes, is located in Bowling Green, Ohio and is a part of the Barony of Red Spears (northwest Ohio) within the Kingdom of the Middle (part of the Midwest in the United States).
