Welcome to the Marche of Havenholde

Welcome to the Marche of Havenholde! We're an Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) group mundanely located in Springfield, OH. We are part of the Barony of the Flaming Gryphon.

What is the Society for Creative Anachronism?

The Havenholde business meeting is held on the Fourth Wednesday of the month,  The Havenholde business meetings are held at the Bay Breeze Seafood Restaurant located at 1805 West First Street, Springfield, OH 45504.  First Street is off of Bechtle Ave.

The location has plenty of parking which is always a plus.
The business meeting will be held in one of the two meeting / party rooms.

If anyone plans on eating they should arrive at 6 p.m. because the meeting starts at 7 p.m. sharp.  Attendees do NOT have to order food to attend the meeting.

The Group Seneschal hopes that, as many people as possible will attend in garb.  The group is trying to build our membership and by wearing garb it increases the visibility of the group and increases the chance of people in the restaurant asking questions about who we are and what we do.  You do NOT have to wear garb to attend.

There will NOT be a Business Meeting in November and December due to the Holidays.  The next meeting is on Wednesday January  27, 2016.

If you have any questions e-mail the Seneschal (Orn) using the e-mail form on the officers page.

We also have a Wednesday Sewing Night/Project Night where shire members get together and socialize. This occurs on the Third Wednesday  of the month at 7:00 p.m. Our Project Night meeting is held at Drea Leed and Ernie Husted's place: 214 S. Shaffer St, Springfield, OH. Directions.
