Regular Meet-ups

Regular Gatherings

The Meetings listed below are open for all to attend – these meetings/ training are generally non-garbed, meaning just bring your regular clothes.

Our weekly gatherings at Beulah Park are official SCA events and therefore attract a $10 non-member insurance fee for each adult attendee ($5 minors). If you are interested in purchasing a membership ($45/12 months) please click here – signing up for membership will remove the need to pay the $10 insurance cost. A $2 donation is also required to help cover hall hire (just once per day even if you attend all the meetings/ training on the day). This is to cover our Hall Hire, tea, coffee, snacks and provides funds for things like our end of year BBQ. For a breakdown of payment methods (beyond just bringing cash on the day) have a look at our Sunday Training Payment Methods page.

Minors are welcome to attend, but they must have a parent/guardian present. A parent/guardian can also nominate another adult each event or training session as a caregiver to serve this purpose, please ask the Constable for a form, or print one yourself (2017 form here).
