Archery, Rapier, and Equestrian Practices

Equestrian-ArcherMonthly Archery and Equestrian practices for 2014 - NOW WITH  RAPIER - Next Practice Saturday May 31, 2014 


The next monthly joint practice will be Saturday May 31st -  8:30am to 5pm at Dragons Den in  
We don't hold practices at this location during December and January due to the risk of black ice on the mountain roads. Practices have been on the Saturday following the first Friday of the month but sometimes change to avoid conflicts with local events or to synchronize with the Shire council meeting as is the case in April. 

Location: The Dragons' Den Farm, 23205 NE Mountain Top Rd., Newberg OR 97132
Quick Directions: make your best route to the intersection of Hwy 219 and Mountain Top Rd. Proceed west on Mountain Top Rd 2.1 miles then follow the sort-of white board fence on your right down the driveway. An SCA sign will be posted at the driveway.

The monthly practices will have equestrian, target archery, and now rapier at Dragons Den in Newberg. Participants and spectators must sign the equestrian waiver in the house upon arrival - this is an official practice with equestrian insurance. The practice dates are set a year in advance for insurance purposes.


IMPORTANT: if you will be bringing a child 17 or younger for whom you are not the parent or legal guardian, PLEASE contact Macha via email about the waiver signature procedure if you are not familiar with SCA's policies and forms. The SCA Equestrian waiver can be found here

We'll also continue the tradition of a mid-day break for a pot luck. 

IMPORTANT: We can also host a war practice with combat archery at this location. Please contact Macha if you are interested in  this (indoor!) activity in February or March. Later in the year this can move outdoors and be in combination with other martial activities at practices. This is an opportunity for war bands to gain more practice with their combat archery units....
