Welcome to the Canton of Northpass!
This is the "official" site of the Westchester, Putnam (and as some say the Bronx) chapter of the SCA known to all as the Canton of Northpass that is of the Crown Provence of Østgarðr which in turn is within the East Kingdom of the SCA. (The exact southern border of our land is currently under some debate though...)
The next major gathering of our group will be at Bear`s Tavern...
There are numerous activities, practices, events and gatherings. For a complete list of the local and a few nearby ones.
Plans for yet more events are ongoing... Please see the facebook group, the yahoo group or the links for local events or local practices for more information. As a sampling we offer Archery, Dance, armored fighting, brewing, and more... Most of these are not "regular" in schedule so it is a good thing to be on the list or the Facebook group.
Our local commons meeting is usually held on the first Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm. The details of where we meet vary. The next meeting will be on Thursday March 3rd at the home of Wilhelm at 8 Clark Place in Port Chester, 10573 (all GPS and online map /directions seem to get you right to our door.) If you need directions please call Wilhelm at 845 800 2407 (cell) or 914 305 2153 (Home.)
Who are we?
We are a gathering of like minded persons who share our love of the past, of chivalry, of fighting and of song. There are no requirements or tests to join us. If you have interest please feel free to contact any of our officers, join the yahoo group, or come to one of our meetings or events.
Events and local happenings
We have occasional gatherings called events. Some feature tournaments and feasts, while others specialize in learning about particular arts of the former ages. For a listing of other events sponsored by us or other local groups please go here.
We also have a Yahoo Groups page with pictures and other information here.
Also, you can find us on Facebook! Please look for the "Canton of Northpass" group (not the page) as a good (but unofficial) means of following the Cantonal fun.
