Upcoming In & Around Østgarðr: March, April, May 2019

Spring is here and our outdoor practices and events are beginning!

Armored combat has already begun in McCarren Park in Brooklyn, 7pm Tuesday nights; for updates, see the Facebook group “Fighter Practice in New York City.”

Rapier fencing will likely begin in mid-April in Central Park (the corner of the park by 59 – Columbus Circle), 7pm Wednesday nights; for updates, see the Facebook group “Historical Arts Rapier Training.”

Updates to both armored combat practice and rapier practice, as well as possibly other practices and events (for example, bardic circle is colocated with rapier fencing every other Wednesday), may be found at the Facebook group “SCA NYC: Crown Province of Østgarðr“.

Northpass dance practice information may also be found at the Facebook group for the Canton of Northpass.

Commons meetings, which are open to the populace, are always on the third Friday of the month, and rotate location through the province — check the prior Commons agenda for the latest on locations, or Facebook!
