Dragon's Laire Events
During these times of plague, we are holding as many events in-person as we can, as safely as we can, according to the current state, county, and SCA COVIDSafe Policy guidelines. Please check our News or the official Dragon’s Laire Facebook group for up-to-date information.
“No matter what safety precautions we put in place, there is no substitute for each individual being educated about the risk to themselves and their loved ones and making responsible choices to protect themselves and others from this virus.“From the Society
Weekly Social & Fighter Practices
Everyone is welcome at our weekly social! Come in your modern clothes, no garb required. Fighters should bring their gear — or you can arrange to borrow loaner gear from the appropriate Marshal and try out something new. If you are crafty, feel free to bring a project you are working on and join a table with others who are doing the same!
Almost all of our weekly events are held at: VFW Post 4992
9981 Central Valley Rd NE, Bremerton, WA 98311
NEW in January 2023: Wintertime Heavy (armored) combat practice and Rapier practice have moved to a new, large, indoor site.
Bldg 1336 Sheep Barn, 1370 Fairgrounds Rd NW, Bremerton, WA 98311
