Meetings Page Text
The Shire hosts weekly fighter practices where our warriors come together to practice their skills. Both the heavy-armored warriors (who wear full armor and fight with rattan weapons) and rapier fighters spar each week. These practices are a good way to prep for tournaments and melees, which happen throughout the year in various parts of the Kingdom and Known World.
Our weekly meetings also serve as a good time for non-fighters to gather, work on medieval projects, plan for events, take or teach classes, socialize, and mainly have fun! When the weather is fair we meet at beautiful Nielsen’s Grove Park in Orem, and our current winter site is Jolie Arts Dance Center in American Fork.
Fighter practices for the Shire are held on Wednesday nights, 7-9 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to attend!
October – April
Jolie Arts Dance Center
60 W Main St
American Fork, UT
Park on the street – the nearby parking lot looks inviting, but it’s for adjacent businesses only and you will be towed!
May – September
Nielsen’s Grove Park
2000 S. Sandhill Road
From I-15 take University Pkwy exit #269, head East towards the mountains, then turn right (south) on Sandhill Road (at the Wal-Mart). Follow Sandhill road until you see a big barn-like structure on your left. Nielsens Grove Park is very well-marked, so you can’t miss it!
