Welcome to the Shire of Vulpine Reach
Society for Creative Anachronism
If you missed us at Silver Star, then here are some highlights. Several people were able to check their archery equipment out at the on site archery clinic. Bow’s draw weights were measured. Arrows were tested for correct spine weight. Minor repairs to archery equipment were made as needed and a class was taught on “How to Make a Flemish Twist Bow String”. If you wanted to obtain instructions on throwing knives, spears or axes then the open range was available and an instructor presented one on one instruction. Several people took advantage of the open range and had fun. We had several people try atlatl for the first time. The big wooly mammoth was brought down by well placed atlatl spears and enough food was prepared to feed the entire shire and guests. Feast was delicious! Dancing and fellowship followed feast and laughter could be heard drifting in from the hall. Exhaustion finally over took the masses and sleep found its way to both young and old. The next day, breakfast was served and farewells were voiced. We left with sad hearts but also with the hope that we would meet again in the future. “Have a safe trip home and please come visit us again” was the last fading voice sent to the wind.
- Business meeting March 2nd.
- Please stay tuned for future updates.
Discover yourself through the looking glass of history!
The Shire of Vulpine Reach is dedicated to researching pre-17th-century European history through re-creation; our goal is to put into practice the skills of those remarkable times. We also research any cultures that made contact with Europe during this time period through trade, war, or exploration. Where the typical Renaissance Faire encourages you to be a spectator and watch the activities being performed, we invite you to learn through participation and create your own unique experience.
Throughout the world, our members gather at events and meetings to share resources, experience, and enthusiasm. Almost every aspect of these ancient times is studied and enacted in Arts and Sciences competitions and martial tournaments. Whether you fancy becoming a warrior, a scholar, an artisan, seeking new friendships or pursuing activities for the whole family, there is a place for you in the Shire of Vulpine Reach.
The Shire of Vulpine Reach is the southeast Tennessee chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism located in the Kingdom of Meridies. The metropolitan Chattanooga area including Cleveland, Ooltewah, Hixson, Fort Oglethorpe, Dalton, and the surrounding regions are all part of the Shire of Vulpine Reach. Come, discover yourself through the looking glass of history!
