WELCOME TO WYNDRICHE
Welcome to the Canton of Wyndriche, a branch of the SCA under the East Kingdom’s Barony of Endewearde. For many years residents in the southern region of the Barony of Endewearde had expressed interest in forming a distinct group that could work together to bring more opportunities for participation in this medieval hobby of ours known as the Society for Creative Anachronism. During the summer of 2013 the incipient Canton of Wyndriche was formed as a smaller SCA branch within the Barony of Endewearde’s borders.
OPPORTUNITIES TO PRACTICE HEAVY LIST & RAPIER COMBAT WITH UNITY COLLEGE STUDENTS: Spring 2015
The Unity College Medieval Reenactment Club at Unity College welcomes SCA combatants to join them at their weekly practices on campus. Heavy list and rapier combat practices are usually scheduled each Sunday from 1:00-3:00 pm at the Unity College gymnasium or at an alternate location on campus.
Limited heavy list and rapier combat loaner gear will be available through the Canton of Wyndriche and the Barony of Endewearde in support of these activities.
Update: Practices will not be held on the following Sundays in March 2015 at Unity College: March 15, 22, and 29. Unity College will be on spring break during this time. Additionally, combat practice may not be held on Easter Sunday, April 5th.
SAVE THE DATE of Sunday, April 26, 2015 for an extended combat practice at Unity College from 2:00-5:00 pm. The Bangor Housing Authority site is not available for combat practice on that date. Thus the Canton of Wyndriche in cooperation with the Unity College Medieval Reenactment Club have been able to extend their regular combat practice time. The Unity College gymnasium will be available in case of inclement weather; otherwise look for practice outside near the gymnasium.
You can find combat practices held at Unity College by using this campus map and driving directions: http://www.unity.edu/about-unity/maps-and-directions

Please review the meeting agenda by following this link to Canton of Wyndriche Business Meeting. You send agenda topics to Syr Cedric of Thanet, Seneschal of Wyndriche, at firstname.lastname@example.org
At least one item on the agenda will be a discussion about the upcoming Canton of Wyndriche SCA event, “Baronial Rapier Championship“, to be held on Saturday, June 13, 2015. Planning and preparation steps will be discussed.
FYI – quarterly meetings are opportunities for planning future activities in the Canton of Wyndriche and a great way to meet people in the SCA. You do not have to be a paid member of the SCA to attend this meeting and you don’t need to wear special clothing – everyday street clothing is what most folks wear to meetings and when attending local workshops or practices.
