That is probably a question best asked to your local group and lists or
to your local archery marshal. This is a Kingdom-wide list and nobody
on this list is likely to know what is going on throughout the entire
To be an _official SCA_ function all practices must have a set time and
place, there must be the appropriate officers/marshals present, and it
must have been announced in advance.
In the greater Stargate area the only branch that holds regular archery
practice is Gate's Edge. Generally it happens on a monthly basis and
the dates each month vary to accommodate the busy kingdom calendar. We
have a blended CA and Target Archery community and while these practices
are typically just target archery we always have Combat Archery Marshals
present and can cover and help with CA issues, do some basic training,
and have seven acres to do what we need. We sometimes have CA playday
where we basically do archers-only melees. Our schedule can be found
via or shire web site.
However, to have a real CA practice you need a good melee practice with
a number of fighters (more the better), that practice as to take place
at a site that allows and can support CA, and you must have CA marshals
present. Such melee practices are harder to find.
Steppes has a regular Melee practice that can accommodate CA and that is
unfortunately the only regularly scheduled melee practice that routinely
involves CA that I am aware of in Ansteorra (there may be others).
Stargate's regular melee practice can not accommodate CA due to site
