Welcome to the Shire of Mountain Edge!
We are a small branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism located in the central region of the Kingdom of An Tir (Pacific Northwest US and part of western Canada). Our Shire lands encompass Yamhill County, Oregon, including the cities of Newberg, Dundee, McMinnville, and Sheridan. We host three fun and friendly events each year – Mountain Edge Defenders Tourney in the spring, Acorn War in early fall, and St. Crispins Day in October.
The Shire also has monthly council (business) meetings and several types of SCA martial arts practices – the current schedule and directions are on the events page.
All are welcome at Mountain Edge activities!
Acorn War is a outdoor camping event held just after Labor Day every year. Our Shire Archery, Thrown Weapons, Equestrian, and Youth Armored Combat Defenders are chosen at this event, there are interesting war scenarios, arts and sciences classes and contests, a “village center” for merchants, and all are welcome! This year will be Acorn War XXVII – our 27th!
Every October the Shire chooses the Arts and Sciences Defender at a one-day indoor event that celebrates all things Arts and Sciences. In addition to the tourney, there are tables for projects, period games, sometimes contests, and a pot-luck late afternoon feast. Spontaneous bardic (music) and dancing are part of this event. In celebration of the harvest, there is no fee – instead, attendees are invited to bring donations for the county food bank.
Each spring the Heavy Armored and Rapier Defenders are chosen at a one day indoor event that also has tables available for Arts and Sciences projects and period games. Spontaneous bardic (music) and dancing add to the fun. Our defenders do us all proud and everyone in the Shire is eligible to participate in the Tourney! Read on to learn more.
Mountain Edge holds regular meetings and practices for martial, equestrian, and other activities. Come down and join us today!
