The Shire of Al-Sahid is a local (Southern California) branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international organization for the study and re-enactment of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Our Shire’s borders encompass the areas of Victorville, Apple Valley, Lucerne Valley, Barstow, Hesperia and a portion of the San Bernardino Mountains (Big Bear area) .

We welcome you to attend our meetings and our events. You needn’t join the SCA, Inc, to attend and participate. The only requirement to come to an event is that you make some attempt at pre-1600 costume (also called ‘garb’) — we have “loaner” garb for people who want to come to their first event. Each SCA participant remembers the day s/he started, and most people are happy to help out a newcomer. In fact our Chatelaine’s sole duty is to help new members find their way into the SCA.
