Hail from the Shire of Rio de Las Animas!

As a mighty little shire we participate in many activities throughout the year. The ones listed here are but a few and one should always check back in to see if there have been more activities added to the list.

Shire Meetings

First Sunday of the Month at various locations at 12 Noon

Next Meeting: November 5th, Populace Meeting 

This Upcoming month’s meeting will be held at Riverhold in Durango, CO. We will be discussing and planning for our annual Yule Revel! Bring your own lunch and join us for fellowship in our mighty Shire.

Email our Seneschal for directions!

Come join us for our monthly Shire Meetings held at varying locations across the lands of the Shire. Meetings include discussion of upcoming and recent events, the occasional Arts and Sciences Class, and general community gathering of the shire. Other activities such as armored fighting and archery may be held if there is enough interest. Shire Meetings may be moved to the next Sunday on the calendar due to other conflicting events so please reach out to us via the email riodelasanimas.sca@gmail.com if you intend to join us for an upcoming week so that we can let you know if there has been a rescheduling and where the meeting will be held.

Heavy Armored Combat Fighter Practice

Practices held Mondays at a specified indoor site during the winter months at 6pm

Bring your gear and fight or come watch your friends whack the daylights out of each other at our weekly fighter practices. Overseen by the Heavy Combat Marshall, our local fighters train and practice for the larger events and tournaments of the year. Fighters 16 years of age and older are welcome to participate after signing a waiver. Please bring your own personal protection (a cup) but the Shire has spare other gear to loan. Practices may be cancelled due to weather conditions (armor likes to rust) or other conflicting events so please reach out to us via the email riodelasanimas.sca@gmail.com if you intend to join us for an upcoming week so that we can let you know if there are any cancellations.

Archery

As noted after Shire Meetings

Whether you consider yourself keen with a bow or are just starting, come join us for honing our skills. We hold archery practices after Shire Meetings overseen by the Archery Marshall. Weather is of course always a governing force as to whether (no pun intended) practice will happen that day, so please reach out to us via the email riodelasanimas.sca@gmail.com if you intend to join us for an upcoming week so that we can let you know if there are any cancellations.
