Welcome to Wiesenfeuer!
You may have heard about us from a friend, found us on a web search, saw our displays and demos at the Norman Medieval Fair or any number of local events or schools. Regardless of how you have found us we’re glad you did. Wiesenfeuer is a part of a very unique organization called the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). It’s an international organization dedicated to the researching and recreating the arts and skills of pre-17th century Europe. The “arts and skills” of Europe (and any people that Europeans had contact with) are far reaching in scope and depth. Arts include everything from making soap or butter to making a catapult or a full set of armor. It includes singing, dancing, calligraphy, weaving, storytelling, playing musical instruments, woodworking.... the list goes on. Anything that was made or done in the Middle Ages or Renaissance is fair game. Skills would include fighting, fencing, archery, thrown weapons, and all manner of games and talents played and practiced in six hundred years of history.

This is not your dry, sit in class and listen history we’re talking about here. It’s roll up your sleeves and dive right in hands on history. Hit your (armored) friends with rattan sticks as hard as you can. Fence like a musketeer or a pirate for honor or booty. Send your cedar shaft (or fiberglass for combat) speeding to hit your target with deadly accuracy like Robin Hood of yore. If you are not into combat or weapons, there is still a great many other things to be done. Learn any number of arts and crafts from people that have developed skills and techniques for making or doing things the way they were centuries ago. Perform fine arts and participate in group competitions. There is literally so much to do and learn that you could spend all your time and never even put a dent in it.

Beyond all the competitions and projects, the royalty and ceremonies, the SCA is at its heart all about having fun. Sure, we do like people to make an effort to play the part, but it’s not all about dressing up and recreating history. The Society is a great place to meet people with similar interests and make new friends. I have friends all over the country now that I met in the SCA. No matter where you go in the United States or many other countries you can find a local group. So come out to one of our events, go to one of our meetings, or contact our Hospitaler or any other officer for more information. And once again, welcome to Wiesenfeuer!

Words from Their Excellencies

We are off to great start!

Congratulations to our new Heirs Gabriel and Sonja!

We have a site for these years Red Plains Baronial! Thanks to Rebekah from Haldtre and Gillian from Eldern Hills for finally finding something available. We will be using Foss Lake this year, it’s a bit primitive, and there is a bathhouse with showers but no other permanent structures. There are plenty of trees, land for camping and RV spots with electric and water. This year Red Plains will be larger than last year as we welcome the Baronies of Northkeep and Namron to come play with us. Each Barony will be sponsoring some sort of activity, tournament for a full weekend of fun! Stay tuned for more information as we get closer. If your Canton or House would like to join is please contact Lady Rebekah or Lady Gillian on what you can do. Rebekah and Gillian will need help with this so if you are interested please let them know.
