Here's a TED Talk video about the hurdy gurdy. Enjoy!

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, and now 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: if you will be bringing a child 17 or younger for whom you are not the parent or legal guardian, PLEASE contact Macha via email about the waiver signature procedure if you are not familiar with SCA's policies and forms. The SCA Equestrian waiver can be found here.
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....
