Forgotten Sea fighter practice is traditionally held every Wednesday evening, from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm. We have both Armored Combat and Cut and Thrust practice at the same location. Many fighters participate in both disciplines.
Our current summer location is in Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch Road, Merriam, KS, 66202.
Covid-19 pandemic limitations are still in place. From Their Majesties:
"These activities are still subject to the previous restrictions applied by Local, State, and Federal authorities, as well as the SCA Board of directors, and Ourselves. Masking rules must be followed on the field as well as off, and masks must be worn directly on the fighter’s face, not placed on the helmet. When not fighting, an appropriate distance should be kept between fighters. Food and drink rules will apply as well, which means water bearing will still not be allowed, so please make your own arrangements for refreshment and remember to distance appropriately when eating or drinking."
Armored Combat Practice
Fighter practice starts at 6:00 PM. If we are fighting indoors, please arrive as early as you can to help put down the floor protecting mats.
IF YOU ARE A NEW FIGHTER, please contact the marshal 24 hours in advance so we may gather loaner armor for you! NOTE: You must bring your own knee pads and groin protection.
