Life is back in full swing! We have our regular weekly gatherings and practices, events are happening all over the Kingdom of An Tir, and you’d barely know we endured the plague.

You can always check our News or the official Dragon’s Laire Facebook group for up-to-date information.

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

Wintertime practice for heavy (armored) combat and rapier will be indoor, at the Sheep Barn of the Kitsap County Fairgrounds: 1370 Fairgrounds Road NW, Bremerton, WA 98311
Lighted, heated, large space with access to real bathrooms. If you are traveling west on Fairgrounds Rd, go past the main buildings of the Fairgrounds (on your right) and turn right at Tibardis Rd SW (look for the street sign on the left). If you are headed east on Fairgrounds Rd., go past the soccer fields and turn on the first road that borders the east end of the fields (also look for the Tibardis Rd SW sign on your right, but turn left). You can also see all of this by google mapping Kitsap County Fairgrounds. See everyone there!

COVIDSafe Policy

The SCA COVIDSafe Policy states we are back to business as usual — as long as we follow local and state laws. At present, there are no restrictions in Kitsap County or Washington State.

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.
