Society for Creative Anachronism

Postby lregeane » Tue, 08 Nov 2005 3:20 am

Have recently come from Chicago (Midrealm) where I was involved in the local SCA group, and am wondering if there is anybody currently in Singapore who is an SCA member. More specifically, I am also looking for someone to practice rapier with ( I come from the Middle Kingdom ruleset, but that doesn't matter...) Thanks! :)

So am i correct in saying that you are looking for someone to dress up like a knight and play with you and your wooden sword? Good luck...

Harsh words there, Wham - harsh words. (The town is actually in Indonesia)

There was something like this held at Fort Canning a few years back, I'd thought all the nerds got beaten up or something. I'd say check the libraries or Leisure Craft @ Orchard Point.

Guys, be nice. SCA is big business in the US and Europe. Don't confuse it with LARP (Live action role playing) which is kind of funny and geeky. :roll:

lregeane, there is no SCA in Singapore although there are some boffers around. If you've been with the SCA you night find the boffers a little less advanced than what you're used to.

Alternatively, you can now train in Historical European Swordsmanship here in Singapore. My training partner and I have recently graduated as free scholars from the School of European Swordsmanship in Helsinki. We are only teaching Fiore Longsword at the moment but I also like to fool around with CapoFerro's rapier techniques and am always looking for study partners. The Provost from Helsinki will be here next month and has promised me a couple of rapier lessons as well which I'm looking forward to. :) He's a very good fencer and I'm going to get poked about again. :D

If you're interested, drop by at http://www.phemas.com and register your name in the forums. From there you can keep an eye on all of our happenings. :)

yes...

It does sound like you are going to get poked again - the only question is where...
