SCA Meeting and Demonstration

Nov 8 2011 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

 

Do you enjoy reading or watching movies about the knights of old, battles, legends and history?   Do the crafts and arts of ancient and medieval times fascinate you?    Have you imagined being immersed in history, than just watching?   If the answer to these questions is YES, then you should drop by and find out more about the SCA club.    The Hagerstown Community College SCA Club is having two information sessions on Tuesday, November 8th, 2011.  The first one will be at Noon at the Student Center in the Hill Top Grill.  The second will be at 6:00 PM, also at the Student Center.  The club is dedicated to the study of, reenactment of, and having fun with history.   The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA.org) is an international, non-profit, educational society celebrating pre-17th century history. It has members who study every aspect of medieval life. We are brewers, archers, calligraphers, heralds, fencers, spinners, blacksmiths, costumers, dancers, cooks and armored fighters. We enjoy feasting, spinning, needlepoint, equestrian, leatherwork, beadwork, socializing, live weapons competition, period music, theatre and much more. If someone did it back then, you can bet someone is trying to do it now. The goal is to learn through doing. Doing and sharing ones subject knowledge with others.   If you are curious to learn more on-line, try looking at a few websites: http://www.scademo.com http://www.sca.org/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOZRTkqUT8s (and be sure to search on Youtube for other SCA videos)   Contacts: Theresa Marks x2507, tmmarks@hagerstowncc.edu Robert Fergesen x2632, rfergesen@hagerstowncc.edu
