The Shire of Carlsby is a local SCA group that encompasses Douglas and Franklin counties in Kansas (primarily Lawrence and Ottawa). We have active armored combat, archery, and equestrian participants, and a diverse group of artisans. Information about current practice and meeting times and locations is below.

Populace Meetings

The second Tuesday of every month at 7 pm, in the same location as fighting practice. The next meeting will be June 5th, to accommodate Lilies War.

Fighting Practice

Every Tuesday starting at 6 pm, either at the Prairie Waldorf School (1853 E 1600 Rd, Lawrence, KS) or in South Park between 11th and 13th St, west of Massachusetts, weather permitting. Check our Facebook group for updates on location. We have loaner gear for new fighters, and we're always happy to have visitors from other groups! Non-fighters are welcome to bring projects and spectate as well.
