Note that all SCA events in Æthelmearc (including practices) require attendees to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (card or clear photo of it), or a negative test within 72 hours. Please come prepared, and be respectful of those tasked with adhering to the regulation, asking for your documentation.


We hold regular Sunday-afternoon meetings, from 1:30-3:30pm, throughout the year at the Bethel Grove Community Center, 1825 Slaterville Rd., Ithaca, NY 14850.

Usually these meetings offer a time and venue for fencers and fighters to practice their skills. We often hold presentations, food tastings, kids’ activities, and crafting projects as well.

Occasionally our Sunday meetings are not held; this tends to happen when a neighboring group is putting on an event that many of us plan to attend. Sometimes we adjust our meetings to begin earlier, especially when we have a guest presenting on an involved topic.

During the late spring through early summer we hold regular practices for archery and thrown weapons. For the post two years, these have taken place Tuesday evenings at the Etna playground.

Check our calendar listing to the right before joining us, to be sure we will be meeting.
