What is this thing called the SCA?
We're not just a bunch of nuts who put on heavy armor and beat each other over the head with sticks (well, some of us might be . . . )
The SCA is the Society for Creative Anachronism. They are an historical recreationist-type group based on the European Middle Ages and Renaissance periods (approximately 600 A.D. to 1600 A.D.), although they also include recreationists of other regions. The SCA strives to authentically reproduce the "best" of this period, without any of the yucky stuff such as The Plague or prejudices which existed.
An SCA event (usually held on a weekend) might include fighting, fencing, archery, dancing, a bardic circle, arts and sciences competition, a feast, and court. Everyone makes an attempt at authentic costuming and armor, skills and set-up.
