The Marshallate is the entity in charge of combat protocol and organization in the
SCA. The Barony has a overall Marshal, and that Marshal has sub-officers who help
with the various different aspects of SCA combat. These sub-officers include the
List Mistress; she runs the 'lists' of combat with the help of the Marshal and the heralds.
Areas of SCA Combat
Generally is divided into several types. There is 'heavy' or armored combat. This is probably closest to the 'knights in shining armor' idea.
There is rapier combat and archery, thrown and siege weapons. For those who ride horses there are equestrian activities and combat, although
currently the Barony does not have an equestrian marshal due to lack of horse riders in the area.
For the youth of the Barony we have Youth Armored Combat.
In the warmer months (Spring to mid-Fall) Thrown Weapons, Heavy Weapons and Rapier practices are on Tuesdays at the VFW Hall
at the Baronial Social and Fighter Practice (6-8 pm). Archery practices are on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 7:30 at the VFW Hall.
Local Fight Practices
Other baronies and shires hold practices which those from Dragon's Laire are welcome to attend (and vice
versa!). Here are a few of them. Please do check the local entity's website to assure time and place.
