Archery, Thrown Weapons, Rapier, and Equestrian Practices

Practices may be rescheduled now that we are into "outdoor event season" in An Tir.In November please be prepared for cooler temperatures - the indoor practice areas are not heated.
Weather: The mountain weather can differ from that in the valley especially during spring and fall. If you have ANY concerns about the weather on the mountain, call Macha at 503-703-4056 for a real-time weather update.
The entire practice site is an equestrian area so the waiver information below applies.

Location: The Dragons' Den Farm, 23205 NE Mountain Top Rd., Newberg OR 97132
Quick Directions: make your best route to the intersection of Hwy 219 and Mountain Top Rd. Proceed west on Mountain Top Rd 2.1 miles then follow the sort-of white board fence on your right down the driveway. An SCA sign will be posted at the driveway.

The regular monthly practices will have equestrian, target archery, thrown weapons, and  rapier at Dragons Den in Newberg. Participants and spectators must sign the equestrian waiver in the house upon arrival - this is an official practice with equestrian insurance. The practice dates are set a year in advance for insurance purposes.

IMPORTANT: We can also host a war practice with combat archery at this location. Please contact Macha if you are interested in  this (indoor!) activity in February or March. Later in the year this can move outdoors and be in combination with other martial activities at practices. This is an opportunity for war bands to gain more practice with their combat archery units....
